“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Comfortable, spacious , stylish and spotless accommodation, friendly and helpful owner, very convenient to local attractions and places to dine cheaply and well (any nationality you like). Not that you'll be going hungry after the Tate House Special breakfast!
No hesitation in highly recommending this bed and breakfast.

We stayed at Tate House the bank holiday week. As im from a tourism background therefore i have had the pleasure if visiting many accommodations in the Uk, i would highly recommend this bed and breakfast if you are looking for ideal location next to Alnwick Castle and our bedroom was very spacious, immaculate and luxurious. Our breakfast and service was excellent and we look forward to returning in the very near future.

Room Tip: We had room 2 overlooking the main street.

I stayed here one night with my wife. The room was large and well lit with a comfortable bed. It was spotlessly clean and the bathroom though not en suite was just across the landing. It was large and clean. Breakfast seemed fine although the only cooked item I tried was the porridge which was excellent. The house is within 3 or 4 minute of the town centre with off road parking. The host was pleasant and helpful but definitely not a screaming extrovert. I would heartily recommend this B& it's great value for the money.

We ate at La Sopra, the food was good.

Have just spent 3 nights at Tate House and would recommend it to anyone wanting a central base for exploring Northumberland. The room was well furnished, clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. For evening meals we can recommend The Plough and The Queen's Head. Parking is available at The Plough (directly opposite Tate House) but be warned both entrances to the car park are a little tight !! Thank you Leo for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Don't be put off by separate bathroom for room 3 - it still feels like en suite. However, if you...

Just stayed for 2 nights at this fabulous B & B in Alnwick. Warm welcome by Leo, the owner, who was a great host. We stayed in the room at the back of the house which was fitted with very modern furniture. Leo showed us his other rooms and they were also beautifully furnished. Had a great breakfast both mornings. Perfectly situated for Alnwick Castle and gardens which is easily within walking distance. No hesitation. Would definitely recommend a stay.

Room Tip: All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated.

This was a great place to stay, and perfect for me and me wife. There was no 'over-selling' on the website, it was exactly what we needed. Excellent breakfast, and a well furnished, comfortable room. It was very clean, well kept throughout and was great value for money considering road links and accessibility to the town. I will say that the booking process wasn't 100% clear, but we spoke with the owner while staying and he was very receptive and wanting feedback on what was a new system.

The owner has obviously changed his ways considering some of the earlier reviews, as he was very friendly, but respectful of our privacy (not something you always get in B&B's, I'm not someone who is very chatty when on holiday). Overall it was a fantastic experience, and my wife and I would definitely consider staying there again.

Room Tip: Just make sure you check the rooms, as not all of them are ensuite!

Fantastic B&B
Beautiful room with very comfortable bed.Great attention to detail throughout ,probably the cleanest B&B I have ever had the pleasure to stay in.
Fantastic breakfast beautifully presented.
Highly recommend.
Very close to the Alnwick gardens.
Parking is situated over the road so bit of a drag when carrying luggage but that is the only slight negative I can think of.
Great place,I would defiantly stay again.
