Chose this place over Hexham
As other reviewers have said the rooms are nice and of good standard. Fresh milk was provided in a small flask...nice touch!
It was avery hot day and we had all the windows open which kept the room cool. Its a very noisy spot with lots of traffic noise; but thankfully all this had stopped by 11pm.
We ate at the local Anchor pub which can be seen from the bedroom window across the river. We were a bit dubious as it looked a bit 'tatty' but we had a really lovely meal so dont judge book by its cover!
Our breakfast was a let down. It was full of apologies.( 2 young adults served us. I did wonder if they had passed the hygiene certificate for serving food??) Im gluten free ( had pre warned them) so my choice is always limited so rely on the basics being available. I had brought my own bread. We did hear toast scraping in the kitchen so I was worried it had been cremated.
I ordered poached eggs and bacon which took an age to come. She apologised as there was only one as the other had exploded. I think she had run out of eggs as didnt offer another one. She apologised to my partner as she didnt have any brown bread only white. The menu said fresh fruit, only blueberries were there and it also said yoghurt. I asked for yoghurt. She apologised she didnt have any. She did offer to run to the shop. The small pots of marmalade and jam all had their seals broken. Was this decanted from larger pots?
What a shame... The breakfast let them down. Id stay in Hexham next time.
