The welcome we received was friendly, but problems soon occurred when they suggested that we leave our bikes on the roadside until the restaurant closed. Once that problem was resolved we found our newly converted room was quite small but beautifully furnished, apart from a lack of shelving in the en suite. Food taken in the restaurant was superb. However... More

I travelled sometime to get to the location midweek and arrived at 6:30pm. I asked what time breakfast was 9:15am? Seriously 9:15 midweek? I have done 2 hours work by that time. The young woman who showed me to my room was very helpful and arranged for some cereal and milk to be left in the fridge so I can... More

A very pleasant experience from start to finish. Plenty of room (no sardines crammed in a tin here) and a well chosen pace between courses. The meal was 3 meats served up on the table for you to calve your own; we went with three adults and the portions were ample. The vegs were all prepared well and the general... More

The open kitchen adds to the atmosphere here but also means you know that you food is coming straight from the hob or wood fired oven. This is good Italian food, plus fish and chips(!), made and served well. Our seafood pastas were great and the house Shiraz was very good too. Friendly efficient service, the best meal we had...

Only stayed for one night last Saturday. The accommodation is under renovation but that did not bother us. Our room was very comfortable and to a very high standard. Everything about this hotel was fabulous from the staff to the food in the Italian Restaurant with an outstanding breakfast. Thank you to all the staff, we will definitely be returning... More

Planned a restful and relaxing 2 day stay, understood refurbishment completed. However accommodation still a building site - quite literally! Drilling, banging, dust and loud radio until 6ish. Ignored by proprietor following arrival, student receptionist did her best to apologise for dirty stairs and access. Room poky and poorly ventilated, toilet plunger broken and bedside light not working. Also above... More

We stumbled across Alnmouth when heading to Alnwick for the day and had to go and explore this beautiful seaside village. We weren't disappointed, and decided to have lunch at the Hope & Anchor. On arrival, we were met with the news that there was no lobster on the menu. Disappointing, but understandable when we were advised that one man... More

Very friendly staff. Was undergoing renovation while we were there but didn't really affect us. Pizza was lovely in their Italian restaurant. Breakfast was ok except if you are veggie, I got given vegetable fingers not sausage which isn't what you want for brekkie! The room was recently decorated and modern but very small. We were there 3 nights and... More

After a 15mile walk we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. Room was large, immaculate and warm. The food was good, the breakfast amazing and plentiful, and they were very dog friendly, no extra charge for him to stay wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely visit again.

We stayed here for one night while visiting this amazing coastline (it also accepts dogs) and really enjoyed the stay. The welcome was great, the accommodation is on the main street and very handy for the beach. We ended up in a family room, although there was only two + dog, it was warm and en suite and comfortable. There... More
