The room would have been just about acceptable at £50 but £90 for one night was too much. The room was dated, poorly decorated, stuffy and uncomfortable. The bathroom was cramped and bolted onto the corner of the room. The toilet flush was useless, the shower unreliable and the "room" itself cold. There was a noisy water pipe in the... More

Freezing cold, unwelcoming and very overpriced. A terrible racket came from the bathroom at regular intervals. Just not a nice place to stay - there are plenty of nicer B&Bs in Alnwick that are much better value.

The location and staff were excellent. Very friendly and competent. Rooms were very clean and food was fabulous. The location was great for all the tourist attractions, Hogwarts, Barnburgh Castle and Holy Island. We had a fabulous time here.

We stayed here for one night with my elderly mum who has walking difficulties. I had previously seen the web site, which clearly stated they had no disabled facilities and no lift, but when booking, I asked for one twin en suite and a single room for my mother. I also emailed them to make sure that they provided first... More

On arriving at The Market Tavern I was greeted by a very lovely dog and its owner who we only later realised was a girl. This made us instantly intrigued about the clientele of this place. My husband and I proceeded upstairs to test the bed, however it soon became apparent that the room was simply too cold even for... More

Stayed here on one Saturday night in Feb. Room and bathroom were lovely and clean, freshly decorated with good bed linen, bed was really comfy (which you don't always get in a b&b). It's a B&B and a pub so at weekend expect some pub noise! However, judging by other peoples' comments they make it sound like a nightclub! We... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights for a wedding. We were pleasantly surprised having read some negative reviews. Our room was very clean and tidy, we couldnt fault the staff as they were very attentive and friendly, best breakfast we have had at a B&B in a while. Saniflow could be quieter but overall we thoroughly enjoyed... More

Arrived new years eve for a one night stay, young lad gave us our keys and was very helpful. Because they were not able to provide breakfast on new years day they refunded a proportion of the payment. Room was cold on arrival but heating was switched on as soon as we advised the staff. We expected it to be... More

I stayed here on a Friday night, when I arrived the girl brought me to my room, it was a good size and the bed was nice. She asked when I would like breakfast and was very attentive, and the breakfast was not bad. I went to the pub for a beer and it was a nice atmosphere. The only... More
