Had a lovely staff here. The staff are helpful and friendly. breakfast is nice in nice surroundings. great location suggestions for improvements include: - heat the room before the guests arrive. was perfect once the heater had been on for a whie so a minor grumble. - perhaps it might be useful to put signs up asking guests to make...

A wonderful location for a weekend break. When we checked in, the 2 receptionists were on phone calls and so we were kept waiting for a few minutes. This was ok, but when the blonde haired young lady did attend to us, she never even apologised for keeping us waiting - or welcomed us to the hotel. We had a... More

The location and staff are the best parts of this hotel. We stayed for two nights on the bed breakfast and dinner package, the breakfast was fine nothing special but adequate,the dinners were probably the worst we had ever had. The leek and potato soup seemed to be missing potatoes, the steak which we paid an additional charge for not... More

We stayed here last week for 2 nights and overall had a good stay. Bedroom was clean and comfortable and food excellent however let down by having evening meal in bar area with breakfast in main dining area...however Karl our waiter on the first night was brilliant and worked efficiently and was so pleasant...he excelled my service requirement

Stayed at this hotel for two nights last week.Room clean and comfortable, but service in restaurant let the hotel down.Some of the staff in the restaurant seemed too casual in their approach to service and in need of further training.The quality of the food was O.K. The hotel location is excellent for visiting Alnwick Castle, Cragside and the Northumberland coast.

I booked a dinner bed and breakfast stay at this hotel through a Virgin experience package (which was £60 more than booking direct, but that's another story!) The experience package included wine, chocolates, robes, slippers and fresh fruit in the room, none of which were there when we checked in. It took two trips to reception to get everything delivered... More

Fab cottage Roomy, clean, great location. Very homely and had a great break here with our four boys. They provided highchair and two cots for our twins. Only thing missing was a stair gate, but to be fair I never asked for one and if I had I sure they would have provided. Very helpful with our enquiries over the... More

Having stayed in other Classic Lodge hotels, we decided to try this one, as we wanted to visit Bamburgh and Lindisfarne again, but also, to take the opportunity to spend more time in Alnwick, as we'd only visited the town briefly in the past. I wish we'd been able to stay in a room in the old part of the... More
