From the outside it isn't the most impressive but from the moment you go through the revolving door which came from the RMS Olympic it is impressive. The dining room (also from the RMS Olympic) is really impressive. Staff are very helpful, efficient and pleasant whilst the food is fresh, well presented and imaginative. Rooms are clean and well equipped... More

Stopped here one night while attending a wedding in August at Alnwick gardens. Staff where helpful and let us check in early but to the smallest room I have ever seen. The room must have been 6ft x 8ft and thats with a double bed in it. The ensuite was 3ft x 4ft. not worth £140 a night at all.... More

We travelled to this hotel after reading about the RMS Olympic (sister ship of the RMS Titanic) connection and I was curious to find out more. The Hotel is in the main street and the revolving doors as you enter are themselves from the RMS Olympic. My wife and I enjoyed a sandwich and a drink in the bar and... More

Chose this hotel due to its connections with the RMS Olympic. The hotel itself is situated on the main street in Alnwick and is easily reachable by car, or bus, (or train via Alnmouth) Its Location is excellent if you are looking to explore Alnwick, and the hotel is ideally situated for those wanting to go to the nearby Alnwick...

Our stay at Alnwick was perfect from start to finish. The hotel was stunning and very clean! It was my partners birthday so they gave him a gift! This was really kind and unexpected and all the staff were really friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again! Loved it.

The good bits: Smack in the middle of Alnwick, the hotel frontage is impressive, with its coaching archway through to the car park. The dining room, re-installed from the Titanic's sister ship, the RMS Olympic is stunning. Our room was way at the back and therefore fairly quiet. It was also in probably the newest part of the building, so... More
