Downstairs reeked of stale cigarettes. thermos flask with milk enough for 2 cups of tea, not replenished and four tea bags also not replenished.... More

Our stay here was the classic 'Curates Egg' - good in parts. To start with the positives - it's in a great location, there's free parking and the rooms are clean and well appointed. Not so good, is the lack of air conditioning in the front rooms (7 & 8) if the weather is good. The rooms have secondary glazing... More

This is a nice guesthouse very centrally located in Alnwick (you can walk into town, to Alnwick Castle, Alnwick gardens etc) and close to Barter Books . The owners are very welcoming. There are lots of books and DVDs you can borrow. Breakfasts were a real highlight. Cooked options included full English, scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, porridge, roasted tomatoes... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in room1 which is situated behind the house overlooking the garden. The room was quite small but adequate everything spotlessly clean. The bed was comfy dressed with white linen. The bathroom had a good electric shower complimentary toiletries and good quality white towels. The car park is round the back of the house so you...

We found Bondgate House from the internet. We were travelling with our friends from Australia and only booked the day before we arrived. Stephen ( our host) was very welcoming and informative about the town, telling us what was best to see in our short 2 day stay. Our rooms were at the top of the house (quite a climb!!).... More

Tea and coffee and sweets were available in the room in addition to books and a flat screen TV. The bathroom was small but had a good shower and lovely toiletries and... More

We stayed one night because of train schedule. It was one of the best places we stayed in England. The breakfast was great and the room was spotless. We can't say enough about our host as they went above and beyond what we expected. If we ever returned to Alnwick there would be no question where we would stay.

We recently stayed 2 nights at Bondgate House, everything was extremely well presented, the breakfasts were wonderful (classical music in the background)and our room was very comfortable. We were impressed at having two armchairs in the sitting area and an array of toiletries in our en-suite shower room plus lovely white towelling bath robes. Stephen was "holding the fort "... More

Gina and I stayed at Bondgate House for a week as we were visiting our daughter in Alnwick. Can honestly say it was a fantastic stay - everything was perfect from the sensational breakfasts (plenty of choice and all fresh food),to the comfortable and spotlessly clean room. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble.... More

For our anniversary my boyfriend surprised me with tickets to the Jessie J concert on the 25th of August where we stayed at this delightful B&B. The hosts were polite and helpful when we asked for recommendations for restaurants. The breakfast was superb, you could tell everything was fresh and natural. The room was clean and tidy and everything we... More
