I don't think there is anything to add to the previous reviews, we had a lovely 2 night stay at Greycroft for the Simple Minds Concert in Alnwick. The welcome from Audrey was fabulous, we chatted about the various things to do over tea and biscuits on arrival and, in the meantime, our cases were whisked upstairs by Tom. Everything... More

Audrey greeted us on arrival , this lovely and warm first initial encounter was the hallmark for the rest of our stay . Audrey and Tom run a beautiful bed and breakfast which is by far the best we have stayed in . The attention to detail from fresh fruit . Bottled water , pepper mints and American hard gums... More

We got married at Alnwick Garden and stayed at Greycroft for 2 nights. We stayed there with our close friends and it was the best decision we made! We had the warmest of welcomes from Audrey & Tom They made sure we had everything we needed and were on hand to help with all our 'wedding needs'. All the bedrooms... More

Greycroft is without doubt the best B&B I have stayed at. The building is lovely and the location very convenient. The room we stayed in was spacious and very nicely presented. Breakfast was made with high quality ingredients and was very tasty. The owners really go out of their way to make their guests have a great stay, a thoroughly... More

One of the most welcoming places we have ever stayed. Audrey and Tom could not do enough to make us feel at home. The accommodation is first rate (we had the blue room). The breakfast was also fantastic. We will definitely be making a return visit. Katy & Richard

We were lucky enough to find one night available last minute at Greycroft. We stayed in the green room which was absolutely lovely. Breakfast was delicious. Audrey and her son were very helpful even sorting us out with vouchers for Alnwick Gardens. Would definitely stay again!

Audrey and Tom are amazing. As soon as you meet them you just know you have picked a winner in the Greycroft. What a lovely sense of humour they both have! Smashing breakfast (where you can view lots of birds and mice having their breakfast too). Where else can you get such service - complete with "help yourself to a... More

What a great place to stay at. Everything for the guest has been thought about. Lovely breakfast, comfortable room and a great location close to the town centre. Audrey and Tom could not be more helpful. We love Northumberland anyway and staying here again will be a great excuse to return.

We were very fortunate to be able to spend three nights at Greycroft. A lovely warm welcome by Audrey and Thomas upon arrival, beautiful room (Red Room) The whole experience was delightful from breakfast to their advice on what to see and do in this beautiful area. Highly Recommended

Wow. Have just returned from 4 wonderful days at Greycroft. From the time I booked to the time we all left Audrey couldn't have been helpful and friendly. The information received with the confirmation email was superb. Then on arrival, wow what a welcome from both Audrey and her son Tom. Audrey has a rare gift of making you feel... More
