We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely b&b. Charles and Christine were excellent hosts, full of information about the local area. Breakfast were fabulous and set us up for the day. Rooms were spacious, bright and extremely clean. Highly recommended.

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of March. We were the only ones staying at the time and Charles and Christine made us very welcome. The breakfasts were excellent, the choices were varied and they kept us going all day. Our room was clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again. Jackie and Mike.

My wife and I have just returned from Alnwick, and our 2nd stay at this Bed And Breakfast. We have nothing but praise for this B&B, and hosts Christine and Charles. The bedrooms are spotlessly clean, Bed, very comfortable and Bedding, white and spotless. Breakfast is excellent, with a very varied choice. Christine and Charles are very attentive hosts. Thank...

We recently visited the quaint town of Alnwick England, and stayed at the Oronsay House B&B. The property was renovated 5 years ago, and it is simply and tastefully decorated. We were in room #2. It is a very comfortable room with a small table and chairs situated in a bay window, a large bed, and a nice sized bathroom... More

Dear Regan P, Thank you for your review and the kind things you say about us. Unfortunately your paragraph about check-in and check-out seems to have been carefully phrased to cast us in the worst possible light. So I have to set the record straight on this. You say "... they were totally inflexible as to check in and check... More

It's probably obvious from the title, we love this part of the world and this guest house. Charles and Christine are excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The house is clean and fresh with a great location just yards from the town centre. The breakfast is something to behold, with a wide selection on offer and cooked to... More

I stayed for a week in early December and found the Oronsay House to be warm, modern and comfortable, and Charles and Christine to be welcoming and professional hosts. As other reviewers have mentioned, the breakfasts are excellent, and a week is barely enough time to sample the full menu. I plan to return and highly recommend the Oronsay House... More

Excellent guest house in a beautiful part of England. Stayed four nights and cannot fault facilities, accommodation and in particular the personal attention of Charles and Christine. Would recommend to anybody.

Alnwick is a very pleasant town, with a very picturesque castle, (Yes it does play on its Harry Potter connection)! We really enjoyed our two nights at the Oronsay and will without doubt visit again. The owners Charles and Christine were very welcoming and friendly. The room was really nice and Christine produces a lovely breakfast! We would definitely recommend... More

Good friendly welcome from the couple that run the B&B. Lovely large room - and kept very clean and tidy. Private car park at the rear of the house. Easy walking distance to the castle, pubs & restaurants in the town and the famous bookshop. We had a room at the front of the house that suffered from some noise... More

This is by far the best Guest house I've stayed in. We were welcomed by the front door by our Host "Charlie" who escorted us to our room and explained all about Entry and exiting, breakfast etc. Our room was finished to the highest quality with en suite, Tv in the room with built in DVD player there was even...
