We ate here as most of our family are veggie and there was lots of choice. What a lovely hotel and restaurant. Kind and helpful staff and top notch food. It had a relaxed atmosphere and I would certainly go again. Many thanks to those who work and cook there 😊

The hotel is in a great location for visiting Northumberland with Banburgh Castle in one direction and Alnwick Castle and Gardens in the other. Just a few minutes walk from a stunning beach and coastal path which is popular with walkers. The staff here are very helpful and the food is delicious with a good range of vegetarian options. The...

Spent three nights on DBB Basis. Good value Excellent choice of food. Small hotel rated only two star due to lack of phones in bedrooms, but who cares about that nowadays? Embleton is quiet little village about a mile from the beach but within motoring distance of Seahouses for boat trips to Farne Islands and further afield to Lindisfarne -... More

We did not stay in the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel this time, instead we "self catered" in a nearby cottage. Tiring of the self catering business, we decided to avail ourselves of the hotel restaurant. As a vegetarian, my partner is not always that well catered for, but the choice (5 different main courses) was superb, and by the end of... More

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
