We didn't stay this time but ate here twice during our fortnight stay. Amazing food, wonderful service as always from Donald. We eat here every time we stay in Alnmouth. One of our favourite places to eat in the country.

Spent 2 nights at Beaches this past weekend and agree fully with the other reviews - the room was clean and comfortable and represent great value for money. As other reviewers have mentioned, they are not ultra luxurious, but they are good value and the hosts Donald and Susan are so welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was extremely good - northumberland...

Stayed here for a night with my Daughter. If you want 5* luxury, with impersonal service,then look elsewhere. We stayed in a high class hotel the previous night but the warm, personal welcome from Donald and the superb breakfast at beaches beat the hotel hands down. The room was comfortable and clean, with an en-suite bathroom - no shower but... More

Four of us stayed in Alnmouth and on our last night 20th July we went to Beaches for a meal. Not a place to be missed we enjoyed the evening and food. Donald was the perfect host, and very warm and friendly. It was the first time two of us had visited the North East what a gem like going... More

Stayed at Beaches for a 3 day walking break in Northumberland and we (5 blokes) were well looked after by our hosts Donald and Susan. The rooms were a little outdated but clean and comfortable. Donald was very helpful with information about the area and Susan cooked an excellent breakfast and supper in their cosy Bistro, though I think at... More

We'd been hiking down the coast in heavy rain all day and were barely in the door when Donald offered to dry out our wet clothes. That set the tone for a wonderful stay. A delicious and reasonably priced dinner was followed by a full breakfast which set us up nicely for the next leg of our hike. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed for 3 nights, a long weekend. It was our first trip to Alnmouth which has a wonderful beach and a good selection of places to eat and drink for a village, although you need to book tables because it's a popular destination. There are great walks to be had on this coast and it is all very dog... More

My husband and two friends stayed here this weekend. The owner was there to meet us late the first night and was very friendly and made us feel at home straight away. It's not plush and is a little like staying in someone's home but that is the beauty of it, the owners are kind and friendly and very easygoing,... More
