Can thoroughly recommend this hotel. It's not very old and still has a newness about it. Again we booked this very last minute and have to say that this is one of my favourite. We have stayed there a few times now and have received the same service every time. We booked a double room and it was very spacious.... More

We were there for the 3 castles challenge golf tournament. The Hotel is as good as it was last year when we visited for the same tour mount. The staff were a credit to any hotel in the country and I would give all of them 10 out of 10. Nothing was too much trouble and all requests were met... More

What a lovely surprise, had to break my trip to Scotland and found this hotel quite by chance. Really helpful staff, clean nicely designed rooms and a very good experience all-round what a pleasant change from the normally very drab run of the mill chains that are advertised and available the length and breadth of the country. Didn't eat there... More

Really nice up market budget hotel. Good size room. Good choice of meals in restaurant and excellent breakfast. Hotel is on main A1 so if you are a light sleeper ask for a quite room on courtyard side.

I was on my way from Newcastle to Holy Island and wanted to visit Alnwick Castle so this was a perfect reasonably priced stop over. The staff were extremely welcoming which was important as I was travelling alone. The breakfast was good with fresh fruit salad.

We booked a 3 night stay for 2 families. The receptionist was really helpful in coordinating the bookings to squeeze us all in. The rooms were huge and very clean. The standard of furnishings was high. During our stay the staff couldn't do enough to help. The food is a bit 'brewers fare' but the service in the restraunt was... More

We stayed at the Hog’s Head over two days for a Wedding we were attending in Ellingham Hall. From the moment we arrived the staff made us extremely welcome and that continued throughout the stay. The rooms were spacious, clean and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. The decor in the bar area was excellent and breakfast was... More

We stayed here from 26th June for 4 nights for a wedding at Alnwick Castle. I must say this is a great place to stay, the room was spacious and very clean. The staff were great, like meeting old friends. The food was very good and according to my sister, Mother and Wife the Sharing Sundaes were very, very good.... More

The rooms we had were large, spotlessly clean with comfy beds. Friendly, courteous and helpful staff. Great choice of food both at breakfast and for main meals. Not too much noise transfer between corridor and other rooms. Not the most scenic of locations but great access to the main road and Alnwick itself. Will definitely stay again if in the... More

I had been here once before and enjoyed my first meal. This time I decided on a lighter meal and opted for the hot beef sandwich - it came with chips and salad. The salad was dripping in oil meaning I couldn't even taste the peppers (my favourite bit), the chips were mediocre and the hot beef sandwich was dry... More
