Having stayed in 5 different B&Bs in Morpeth, I can say with some confidence that this is by quite some margin the best of the bunch.
I've stayed at Newminster, both as a solo traveller for work and on a familly stay so have occupied all three rooms at some point. All of the guest rooms are clean, tidy and well equiped and the position next to the Oldgate Bridge is close enough to the town centre, a few minutes walk away, but without the congestion outside and traffic noise at night.
As other reviewers have pointed out, the beds are very comfy so you are assured a good nights sleep and the proporieters, Paul and Zoe, are as friendly and accomodating as anyone could possibly wish for and it really does feel like being 'welcome guests' of the familly in the nicest possible sense . Paul also cooks up a tasty full English Breakfast, which is a real bonus to start the day with!
In summary, a perfect venue for a relaxing short stay in the town.
