We were booked into Malabar by the company that organised our long distance walk. From the welcome to the farewell the next morning, we could not fault anything. Lovely homemade cake instead of commercial biscuits, large immaculate room, excellent bathroom and a very good breakfast. We would like to come back to Seahouses to visit the Farne Islands, and will... More

We stayed in a large twin room in Malabar for 3 nights in August 2014. It was our first visit but others in this excellent B&B were returning guests. It was easy to see why. The booking system is simple, the rooms are spotless and the breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. We could not have asked for more... More

We have visited The Malabar every year for the last 4 year's - why? Moira & Brian are fantastic hosts, the rooms are fresh/clean. Breakfast is fantastic.. Homemade cake & bottled water.. We'd never stay anywhere else in the Seahouses area as this is home from home during our yearly stay in Seahouses. See you later in the year or... More

What a find. Brilliant. Went to the Farnes with my Son recently and booked accommodation in Seahouses. Checked Trip Advisor but it was such short notice, it was still pot luck as to the quality of the place we stayed. No need to worry. Via work and pleasure I've stayed in a number of guest houses and the difference in... More

All I can say was that it was wonderful and booking to stay there in 2015. We could not fault the room, beds, facilities and friendliness. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!!!! The breakfast was great. The room was comfortable and clean. Cakes every day in room. David and Daisy, Norfolk

One of the best B+B's I have used. Stayed 2 nights. Room was excellent, very clean, everything worked, en suite had separate bath and shower and still room to move. Bed wasn't the most comfortable, but that's just personal taste, I had two great nights sleep so it can't have been that bad. Owners were very helpful.

Would certainly book agian-this was our 2nd time in Seahouses and pleased we found Malabar. The homemade cake went down a treat!! Very welcoming/spotlessly clean/comfy beds/wonderful breakfast-this would see us through whilst on the Farne Isles. Moira and Brian were excellent hosts and would certainly book again. We highly recommend Malabar.

I genuinely can not say enough good things about my four night stay at the Malabar this month. Brian and Moira were the perfect hosts, and it felt more like I was staying with friends. The room was spotlessly clean, had a lovely en-suite bathroom and self service tea & coffee, with the added touch that a home made cake... More

We were so lucky to find this accommodation and so grateful to Moira and Brian for making it so comfortable. Large sized bedroom with plenty of space. Homemade cake to greet us. Comfy beds and beautiful breakfast. We only had one night here but would certainly recommend it and hopefully we will be able to return here one day.
