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

My husband and I stayed at the Hogs Head after I had been lucky enough to win a three night break which included DB&B.We stayed in a room laid out to accommodate people with disabilites,it was very spacious and offered all the facilities you come to expect but don't always get in rooms for the disabled. The food at dinner... More

Building quite new so greenery not established around it. On arrival surprised to find no reception: it was part of the bar area. Room was good size, very clean, no choice but duvets which were too hot, no telephone, no "goodies" of shampoo etc and no doors on anything so all clothes on show. Our room on the other side... More

We make no bones about the fact we are an inn with rooms. And a good one at that. It's not that we are below standard, it's just that's what we are! As a pub we don;t have a large reception area, but we do have a designated check in area for guests. We are deliberately a three star inn,... More
