Kristen is a wonderful host who goes out of her way to accommodate her guests. She offered to pick us up at the station and take us there. She even drove us to Housesteads (which we paid her for) since the bus schedule didn't accommodate our needs on that particular day. Breakfast was superb and fresh with lots of variety.... More

After a lot of research I picked the "Grey Bull Hotel" for our 7 night stay in Haltwhistle. I could not have picked a better place to stay. Our room and on suite was very clean and comfortable with lots of extra toiletries etc. that were not expected. Kristen and her staff couldn't have been more helpful and were genuinely... More

My 11 year old daughter and I arrived after a cross country drive from Holy Island. Kristen and her family were incredibly welcoming from the moment that we came into the Grey Bull. A tour and full explanation was followed by tea and huge chocolate cookies; helpful recommendations about where to eat. My daughter was made to feel very special... More

Excellent accommodation, comfortable, well equipped room, good food and warm welcome. Great stuff. Oh, and the shower was fantastic! The hotel is on the edge of town handy for the A69 (Newcastle - Carlisle) and visiting the Roman Wall

Stayed here for one night while doing Hadrians cycle ride. The welcome was excellent, second to none. We were escorted personally to the room on the top floor and then brought coffee and tea by the landlady. The room was excellent with good beds and bedding and decor. As we were on cycles our bikes came into the main house... More

We stayed at the Grey Bull B&B for 2 nights, June 11-13, 2014. The host, Kristen, is a very special person who can not do enough to make your stay a pleasant one. She prepares an excellent English breakfast and is very helpful with suggestions as to where to hike, where to eat and which bus you need to catch... More

The Grey Bull is a jewel of a place, centrally located and the perfect hotel to stay for your visit to Hadrian's Wall. Kristen Hind runs the family business and gives out the kind of service and kindness money cannot buy. First, she stunned us by picking us up at the train station and whisked us off to her charming... More

Haltwhistle is well located to explore Hadrian's Wall and the Grey Bull is the perfect place to stay to round off the experience. The Grey Bull is a short walk from the railway station, with ample parking next door for those that drive. Kristen runs a very efficient operation whilst making everyone feel at home, resulting in a very breakfast... More
