I stayed here around 2 years ago this October and had a really good experience. Due to the season the hotel was offering good bed, breakfast and dinner deals which were good value for money. The food was great and the experience of sitting in the Olympic Dining room was amazing. (The decor is from the lounge of the Olympic... More

Very welcoming team, good location for exploring Alnwick. Rooms reasonable standard, good hot shower, but no heating in bathroom so towels don't dry and signs of black mould around shower. Cooked breakfast service is very slow, and chef unable to cook fish (tried on 3 evening and always dry or over cooked)

Room was clean and nice although the bathroom requires refurbishment and the walls thin so you can hear next room talking but besides this we really liked the hotel. The Olympic room is beautiful and the food in Hardys Bistro was the best meals we have ever had recommend the Rib-eye steak done... More

Booked afternoon tea as a treat while in Northumberland on holiday. Made enquiries when we booked by 'phone about bringing our dog and sitting in the garden. When we arrived, the reception staff walked us through to the garden, where a table was laid ready for tea, and unprompted the waiter brought a large bowl of water for the dog.... More

We stayed for one night as a birthday treat. Pleased with the room which was warm and comfortable. Food was disappointing however. My wife chose the lamb main course which was tasteless. Price of this was refunded. Breakfast was excellent. Overall ok stay but considering this was £130 per night hotel we thought it was overpriced and wouldn't recommend staying... More

Lovely old hotel, staff were very welcoming and helpful, nice to have a car park on site, great sized bathroom and above all the cleanliness was excellent. My only qualm is that some of the rooms could do with some decoration/updating, a minor detail in what was a great stay!
