Location is excellent, walking distance to Alnwick Castle and Gardens and bang in the town centre. Good value for such a location - £60 per night for a double en-suite. Bad points - room needed updating, a bit tatty but for price couldnt moan, bathroom had a saniflo so really loud on every flush - especially if another room flushes... More

A room without even a window, frayed dirty carpets, wires everywhere in the hallway, a shared bathroom with now shower, the most basic facilities. There was a sink in my room but there was no hot water, not even attached to a pipe? I had booked for 5 days, but paid up on the first evening and cancelled the rest... More

We booked late, but this hotel/pub is in poor condition throughout with tired decor, marked doors and an awfully loud plumbing system , No breakfast I can understand why one to be avoided and at $£60 well over priced, we were going to make an complaint on leaving but no boby was about just an mobile stay clear

Warm and friendly welcome. Booked the room online a week before as in the area on business. I arrived late tea time. Went out in the local area for tea then back to the bar for a few drinks. Pleasant stay, pleased with the room. Very reasonable price for the area. Will be back in the summer.

Lovely stay and for 50 quid for a room in centre of historic town of Alnwick I'm not sure why such negative reviews. Lovely staff and pub has really friendly atmosphere with a cracking pint. Rooms comfortable with lovely clean ironed bedding. No breakfast but that's not an issue as its right in town centre with plenty of places within... More

Loved our stay at the Market tavern, staff were amazing!!! they were friendly and couldn't have done more to make our stay any better, our double room was light and airy and the bed was really comfortable with lovely crisp bedding, We arrived early so had our lunch in the Tavern which was delicious homemade lasagne and home made chips.......

I do not even know how to describe this place... Just terrible! After arrival we get to the room and straight away i called to Expedia and ask for refound. This is not a place for anyone - need a total refubrishing. The breakfast was in fact NOT included while my reservation I was informed it is.

On arrival at the B&B nobody in sight everything locked up. At 1pm it opens so don't arrive before then if you want to be in. Shown up to room which was basic to say the least single room has no ensuite facilities but there's a bathroom down the corridor you can use has a bath and toilet in it... More

We booked this for bed and breakfast over the internet then received an email saying the breakfast was not included with the room we had booked. When we arrived we asked what room the breakfast was included with and were informed that there was no breakfasts served in the winter months. We went to our room which was quite nice... More
