“The perfect GetAway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2009

From the moment we stepped through the door of this exceptional home we were wonderfully looked after by Tom and Audrey. Greycroft is beautifully appointed and the breakfast kippers are the best we've ever tasted. Alnwick is a lovely town with many great eating places just a short stroll away. A splendid base for exploring Northumberland - they even dry your boots off for you if the weather isn't quite as hospitable as the hosts...well, we were there in December!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2009

I recently made a booking for my trip next year for two nights online and I was surprised to get a personal email from Tom and Audrey acknowledging my reservation and even provide me with links to help me with my trip.

Since I am still doing research and looking for a car rental in the area (which really frustrates me since I couldnt find a local one), they quickly respond to my query within 10 mins with a recommendation.

Im really looking forward to see Alnwick and with all the positive reviews I read from here, I will definitely update my review here after my trip.

Right from the start of arriving at Grey Croft - we were made to feel very welcome - Audrey & Tom are great hosts, with fantastic knowledge of the area - where to go etc.. and make a mean breakfast! :o)

We stayed in the green room - which was lovely, very spacious with a fab shower (the infra red mirror light was v. cool!)

It's definitely well worth staying there - it's in a great part of the country and we found it to be a very relaxing stay (we didn't want to go home!). We will be going back!!!

This was our second stay at Greycroft, and we will certainly be returning. The bedrooms are comfortable and maintained to a very high standard. The breakfast was lovely, and served by the friendly proprietors who have the skill of giving personal service on a pforessional level.

We stayed for a weekend in the green room, lovely comfortable room, well decorated and equipped. Bathroom with power shower and lovely hot water. Audrey and Tom very welcoming and attentive and nothing too much trouble. We would love to return and will tell all our freinds.

Could not ask for more in Alnwick, Tom and Audrey run a beautiful house andcould not be more friendly. The bedroom we stayed in (green room) was immaculately decorated with a wonderful bathroom, especially the shower.
There was a wealth of information on offer for the local attractions and even a glass of sherry on offer.
Could not ask for more from a B&B, and definately worth the money.

Spent two nights here recently with our six year old daughter and found it to be in an ideal location and perfect base to visit local attractions. We stayed in the Family Room which was very spacious and extremely comfortable, breakfasts were delicious and the hospitality was very warm and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying here, and hope to return.
