Newly built, this hotel is worth a look. The rooms are larger than you would expect. Very comfortable, free wi-fi and friendly staff. The food was very tasty with good size portions. I would highly recommend The Hogs Head.

Cannot fault the Hogs head at all. All staff very professional and friendly. Rooms are big with huge comfortable beds, bathrooms are average size but that's fine, nice powerful shower. Wifi works well throughout hotel, wasn't expecting this reading previous reviews. Food is absolutely 1st class with a huge choice, large portions may not be to everyone's taste but it... More

Some things you should know about the Hog’s Head Inn before you book: 1) It’s 1.5 miles from the centre of Alnwick, on the opposite side of the A1. If you want somewhere close to town, this isn't it. 2) It’s on an industrial estate. It’s not the kind of place where you go for a romantic stroll after dinner.... More

Stayed here for two nights and although it's a nice hotel with very friendly staff it does have a downside. The food was a bit dull and some of it was pretty poor quality. It's a shame because it's a very clean hotel with nice people. We'll give another go sometime.

Stayed here for a wedding and had a lovely time. Beautiful rooms and wonderful service. Free Wi-fi in the bar and great food served there too. Also awesome shower pressure, could have stayed in there for hours.

My wife and I were looking for a few days away in peace. nice hotel, good food and not at a price that would require a second mortgage. On a site not two miles from the centre of the beautiful border town of Alnwick we found what must be our perfect hotel. Three stars here are more then deserved as... More

It wasn't what I was expecting, for some reason I thought that it would have a bit more character. But I should have done my research properly. The Hogs Head is located well over a mile from the centre of Alnwick, just to the east of the A1 intersection on a new build industrial estate. Not very picturesque but in... More

Thank you for your review - we're glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Not sure we'd quite agree about being on an industrial estate - we are opposite a business park on the edge of Alnwick - there is an industrial estate a few minutes drive away though! We're really delighted you enjoyed and would recommend us - thank... More
