I would only recommend staying at this guesthouse if you are happy to deal with owners wearing stained and dirty clothes. The rooms are very small and dated. The 'room with a view' has a view of a carpark. Cleanliness is clearly optional and includes dusty clutter on every surface. Views of the kitchen from the reception area are far from encouraging. Anyone thinking of staying here should check out The Schooner at nearby Alnmouth which is far nicer for not much more money and has friendly staff, clean rooms and is in a far nicer part of Northumberland. A last resort resort.
