Lets start with the negatives. Only one a wonky table'!!! We should have done something but didnt - why ? Because food and service amazing. We share a starter which duly arrived wi two sets cutlery. (As did our shared dessert of local strawbs and ice cream I would go back for time and again). Hubby had main scallops and... More

If you want to experience the magic of Lindesfarne you must stay overnight when the crowds are gone and this local pub is ideal. We stayed in room 3 which beautifully overlooks the priory. It was large, comfortable and absolutely spotless. The bar is very friendly and we came away with tales of "life on the island". Meals were delicious,... More

This is a delightful place that is an island twice a day and is best experienced when cut-off and returns to its island status. So, a hotel stop over is recommended. This hotel has a brilliant location and very friendly owners/staff etc. We had a lovely room with a great view (views of the churchyard and sea are fantastic). The... More

Stayed one night in August 2014, only four bedrooms, we were in room 1 with stunning views. Food is excellent standard and the staff were lovely. Would definitely return again. the new owners are gradually refurbishing, so the slightly seedy parts will be soon be history.

The accomodation and especially the food is excellent. The staff are all very friendly and as there are only 4 guest rooms and all the staff live on site, there is a very pleasant family atmosphere about the place. The full english breakfast is the best I've had in a long while. On the second day I couldn't make up... More

We rebooked immediately after our lovely stay in June as we enjoyed our visit so much and couldn't fault it. The staff have a lovely rapport whilst being professional and attentive no matter how busy, and the atmosphere is extremely relaxed . We were in room 4 which is a twin with shower room, In hindsight I should have booked... More

Stayed here for one night after walking the St Cuthbert's way. It looks like a basic pub, which in some ways it is, but my room (3, I think) had great views over the field and the priory. The room itself was a decent size and had everything you'd need. Slightly shabby look, but it fitted in well and was... More

Clean, comfy room. Was concerned about noise from the bar below but no sound made it up to us even with the window open. Breakfast was very good, service was polite prompt and friendly. parking was limited but that seems to be the way on the Holy Isle. Overall I'd be happy to go back.

Kyle and Zuzanne took over this Hotel (pub) 18 months ago when it had been run down and are in the process of building it up again. It is still a work in progress in my opinion because some things are excellent and some are not! We stayed in room 1 which was very large and overlooking the Priory. The... More
