Booked the Saddle because we were dog sitting and it suited that purpose. However if we were without pooch we would not book here. The room we had was ample in size but we were concerned about cleanliness. The breakfast room windows look as if they have not been cleaned for months and this also houses Hook the restaurant.

We booked very late for this trip and we needed a twin room. We got last room in saddle having tried various other places which all were fully booked, unfortunately our booked room was at the top of the house which for anyone who struggles with walking, it is not ideal. The room was pretty clean with a double and... More

Lovely little B&B in a beautiful setting. Very welcoming and fantastic breakfast. We were in room 2 and even had a sea view! Stayed here as a stopover but would definitely go back for longer in the future.

Really enjoyed our return stay. Lovely room with small sea view. Mick and Barbara as friendly as always. Brilliant breakfast served by very charming lady. What is there not to like. Alnmouth station provides good rail links to Newcastle and Edinburgh for a day out if you have to tear yourself away from the great Northumberland coast Thanks again, would... More

We were made very welcome on arrival.Our room was very clean and had everything required for our 2 night break.The owner and... More

My wife & I plus 'designer' dog booked for 3 nights starting 13th July. Barbara gave us a lovely welcome and pointed out places of interest, pubs and eating houses. Our room was comfortable with TV, tea & coffee and a nice spacious bathroom en suite. As a bonus, we had a limited sea view. The location is first class,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in July and it suited our needs really well. It is perfectly located in Alnmouth, and the fact that it has it's own car park a real bonus. The room was on the first floor overlooking the main street and the room was quite large with a 2 seater settee as well as a... More

For the money this place needs to try harder or lower the price. The bed is old and tired, the shower tiny, the bathroom small. It's clean enough though and the reception chap was friendly and helpful but just don't have high expectations, which the price suggests. Top marks for the breakfast and the lady serving it although this would... More

We booked this for one night an wish we could have stayed longer. Barbara is very welcoming and knowledgeable about local area. We really appreciated our dog could stay at no extra charge. Alnmouth is lovely and the saddle makes a great base to explore this lovely area. We will definitely return and would recommend to those who appreciate traditional... More

Stayed for 2 nights last week in the executive suite.The suite had a separate lounge and T.V.and also a T.V.in the bedroom.The bathroom has a large bath and a separate shower! Whatever you needed was in the rooms i.e. iron,hairdrier,ironing board etc, etc.Will definitely stay here again when we visit this lovely seaside town.
