Lots of choice on the menu including local seafood. The veggie selection is great and not risotto for a change! I had a lovely chickpea dish. There is a lovely garden opposite with a swing. Dogs aren't allowed inside but you can take them in the garden.they also do takeaways. Excellent place to eat.

Stayed here two nights. Lovely room, friendly staff and very good location. Didn't use the car at all after arrival, as you can walk from the door and there are 3 pubs with food in the village. You walk up the lovely coast in either direction. You can support the village by buying the trail book (£5) in the hotel... More

We ate here whilst staying in the area, the service was good and the food of good quality too. The staff were a little abrupt but they were very busy and 4 of them front of house kept things going so I can live with a little abruptness. Food was really good quality and plenty of it too.

The village is lovely and a great location for exploring North and South Northumbria.The bed was perfectly comfortable and the room a reasonable size. The bathroom was tiny. Food was ok if unimaginative. However we did not eat in the dining room in the evenings. This old hotel could be beautifully refurbished without loosing any of its old world charm.

Embleton is a lovely village , a short walk from one of Northumbria's stunning beaches. The lane by the side of the hotel is a quiet route to the sea past the golf course. The hotel allows dogs and there is no restriction on walking dogs on the beach at any time of year. Staff all seems busy so service... More

We spent four nights DB&B in one of the 'large village view rooms' at this hotel, room 2. We were pleased to be given a light room, dual aspect windows. The bathroom was adequate, albeit small. There was a heated radiator for towels; no face flannels were provided. We enjoyed our meals, especially the fish. Dinner was chosen from the... More

Dunstanburgh Castle hotel has very welcoming staff, quirky place, fantastic walks as the sea is on the doorstep. Very scenic location. Taxis were very few and far between so make sure you book up early. Golf club nearby and close to newton hall for weddings.

Friendly staff, clean room and bathroom. They made us sandwiches when we arrived and helped organise a taxi for us and were very helpful. We had our dog with us and she was made to feel welcome as well.
