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 The rooms were a little outdated but clean and comfortable.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

We stayed a night at Beaches as part of a walking trip on the Northumberland coast. We arrived wet through and muddy and immediately recieved an offer to dry our clothes. The beds were comfy, the breakfast was excellent, and the owner was extremely helpful and friendly. The village of Alnmouth is really pleasant and this is a top notch... More

We loved the purple themed room with an extra-large bed. We also really appreciated Donald, who welcomed us as a friend would welcome guests into their home. And although we missed out on dinner (they were fully booked) we can highly recommend breakfast. Lots of fresh berries and fruits with nice cereals. And then hot breakfast on top of it.... More
