Booked 2 nights as a mini break for myself and my 2 boys, so we could visit Alnwick castle, gardens and the Farne islands. We checked in approx 6.30pm (having spent 20mins going around in circles trying to find parking) and left at 715pm after being shown 2 different rooms which were both a disgrace. As we were shown upstairs,... More

Firstly, Alnmouth is beautiful and well worth a visit. So why the 2 star rating? On arrival, there was nowhere near the door to park. So having dragged cases up to the main door, you walk into a dark hallway and are faced with a bar with local commercial radio blaring out. Not a good start. The door to our... More

£260 for 2 nights plus breakfast, in the Family Room. If you like broken doors, bad smells, dirty furniture, dust, dodgy electrics, stains, mouldy tiles, tatty flooring, broken window openings and minimum storage, then go for it. This Hotel - and I use that term loosely - is in the middle of a re-furbishment that is obviously being funded by... More

After reading the hype and their website it seemed a good laugh to give it a go over the bank holiday weekend. After booking two nights with one of them being the Ghost Hunt it seemed set to be a laugh. Alnmouth is a great place with an enormous beach and bay but the hotel was a let down. The... More

Having just spent 4 days at The Schooner Hotel I have to say our impression was at first rather grim with a less than happy attitude from the staff!! Light bulb broken and removed from the main light shade and left was replaced but pop up bathroom basin plug wouldn't work and nothing was done or said about it, just... More

Ok firstly I did get my money back. Whole hotel is tired and needs total refurbishment. We moved the beds together and found years of dirt and dust. Pulled back the sheets and the bed had not been changed, complete with the last persons ear plugs and sand. TV had no signal. Window was so rotten that we had to... More

Stayed here for 1 night in August, 6 of us traveling to Berwick-upon-Tweed. Decorated in a bygone era maybe the best way to describe the hotel..Reported to be haunted but regrettably our friends who were staying in the " haunted room" were not visited that evening.. Had our evening meal and breakfast in the hotel, all very well cooked and... More

WE had a twin room the bathroom had been updated but the heated towel rail didn't work if it did, we would not have asked... More

We stayed in the hotel last night and found it to be good value for money. The decor might be a little dated but the room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The only meal we had in the hotel was breakfast which had a great selection of fruit, yoghurt, cereals and the cooked breakfast was lovely. The hotel... More

Stayed on Thursday 19 June 2014 for one night. Had always avoided the Schooner mainly because we didn't want to find ourselves in a ghost hunt but also because of poor reviews. We found the staff pleasant and helpful and our room (no 24) clean, light and attractive. The furniture was new, the bedding was good and the bathroom clean... More
