Perhaps the most striking thing about thi B&B was the lack of owner staying on site. We arrived to an empty house. Phoned the number on the website and advised the key was on th door and someone on their way. We have a very brief intro, and we were on our own. Don't think we met the actual owner... More

Stayed here for one night at end of February 2015. Its a lovely guest house in a very good location. Plenty of restaurants nearby to choose from and within walking distance of main shopping area. Room was lovely with nice modern decor. Breakfast was delicious, plenty to choose from. Really enjoyed our stay, the owner and the lady who made... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights last year and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our hostess, Tracy, was lovely. For the price of the room per night you don't expect the most 'high end' furniture and fittings, but we were pleasantly surprised by the tasteful, modern decor in our room. Both the bedroom and bathroom were very clean. My... More

The location could not have been more perfect, walking distance to the fabulous Barter Books, Alnwick Castle (which was magnificent by the way) and shops and restaurants. Parking was perfect, right outside our room. The room was perfect, lovely bay window, nicely decorated. Host Tracy was perfect, lovely lady. Breakfast was perfect, full English, and delicious. Not sure where some... More

Some of the reviews we had read before we arrived were clearly speaking of another place/time/planet! Tracy and her staff were excellent, breakfast fantastic on each of the three nights we stayed and bedroom comfortable if a little small (more later). "Kerb appeal" is limited but believe me that inside is much better, all the rooms were spotless (we looked)... More

We liked 'Castle Gate' in Alnwick and thought it was good value. We had a large room at the front of the house which has bright cheery decor. It's all very IKEA but is fresh looking and well co-ordinated. The en-suite is compact but clean and everything worked fine. We had no trouble with noise from neighbouring rooms or the... More

We booked late and all of the guesthouses near Ellingham Hall were booked out. We stayed at the Castle Gate and drove in to the wedding. It's a lovely guest house. The rooms are big, the breakfast is excellent and the staff were delightful.
