Me and my family stayed at this hotel last weekend for a wedding and found this to be in a great location with just a 5 minute drive to the town centre and the wedding venue which was the Alnwick treehouse (next to the castle, which is well worth a visit). We were only disappointed with the early check out... More

There were 17 or us here for 2 nights for a nearby wedding. The staff were fine and the rooms spacious. The free wifi was quick to connect to and reasonably fast. Our room was quiet - not sure of the ones facing the A1. We had a disabled room (for the first time ever) but the bed was comfortable... More

Have stayed overnight and just called in for lunch and always enjoyed the experience the rooms are large and clean the bathrooms are large and modern with minimal toiletries . Had chicken ceasar salad today and must admit I could hardly find any chicken but found comfort in the superb cheesecake .

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. But we're sorry to hear about a lack of chicken. Please do let us know when your meal is quality checked by our team - we would rather know if something was not 100% right. Come back soon! More

I stayed here with my teenage son on a trip around the UK. The hotel is very modern and the family room was spacious. The staff were very friendly and the check-in and out process was very simple. The beds were very comfortable and we also enjoyed the breakfast that was built into the price. Plenty of parking. Overall a... More

We ate here twice whilst in Northumberland, lunch on one day and dinner on another. It's a new pub/hotel just outside Alnwick so it's modern and spacious. We got seated and ordered our food at the bar giving our table number. On Friday lunchtime we were told there was a 40 minute wait for food as lots of customers had... More

Relatively new hotel so everything is in good condition. Good sized room with comfortable bed but no room thermostat, however windows open easily so not a major problem and Northumberland doesn`t have a tropical climate. Very tasty food in restaurant, both dinner and breakfast and all of the staff were very pleasant, helpful and professional. Not the prettiest location, next... More

Modern, functional accommodation. Ideal, clean, comfortable room. Good parking. Short taxi into Alnwick. Restaurant on site, distinctly average, breakfast fine. Stayed here twice, and will do again. Similar standard to Premier Inns.

Very spacious room, courteous and accommodating staff and good food. Well worth a visit. Easy to find and perfectly positioned for people to visit the historic town and still have the peace of the countryside. Children are catered for with a play area which is advantageous for the younger members of your party.
