This is a hotel I've been meaning to visit since the restaurant was recommended to me last year by a friend so when it appeared on Travelzoo we didn't even have to drive home!
The position is good near the centre of Wark and quite close to the Keilder Water and forest. Good base for either sightseeing or walking in Northumberland
The bed room was a little on the small side but well decorated and very clean throughout. The bathroom was good with modern fittings and a shower over the bath. Nice touches such as fresh fruit in the bedroom sets this hotel apart from the normal 3*
The bar and lounge area is very cosy with nice leather seats and very old world feel. All the public areas were very well kept and the owners are obviously very keen to maintain a high standard.
The package we were on had a 7 course tasting menu for dinner and breakfast which were both really good and well worth my friends recommendation. this was one of the better tasting menus I have had in terms of quality and I didn't come out feeling hungry as sometimes happens!
Breakfast was very good and was served and not a buffet job.
All the staff were really pleasant and went out of their way to make sure everything was right.
Definitely a cut above your normal 3* and worth with a stay. Going back to try their normal menu soon!
