Can only say that our stay at Greycroft was beyond enjoyable. We stayed in The Yellow Room for 2 nights, and wished we were staying longer. Anything that you could possibly need during your stay had already been thoughtfully provided. Huge selection of freshly cooked local produce at breakfast.....marvellous. The added bonus of having Audrey and Tom as our hosts... More

This B&B was recommended to us by friends who visited a few years ago. It is very centrally located in the heart of Alnwick with lots of sights and restaurants within walking distance. There is a wealth of information about the surrounding area available in the hotel. Audrey and Tom gave us a wonderful welcome, and obviously love their work.... More

If you want to visit Alnwick this B&B is within walking distance of everything. The owner and her son have thought of everything to make the stay pleasant. This attitude was immediately apparent when receiving the booking confirmation and it contained web addresses of many local attractions. lovely garden to sit and relax.

We chose Greycroft from the very large number of "excellent" ratings it has achieved. We had high hopes for a good weekend in Alnwick with two other couples for a school friends' reunion, all of whom had travelled a long way. They were well and truly exceeded! Everything was absolutely superb! It's all been said in other reviews, and it's... More

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

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
