West Acre House
Ranked #1 of 69 Alnwick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 16, 2013

From the warm welcome to the beautiful room everything about West Acre is perfect. Bruce and Jeanette go out of their way for their guests and love to share history of their delightful home and also local knowledge. The house is close to the castle and gardens of Alnwick but it also makes a good base for exploring the beautiful coast and surrounding countryside.

Yet another great stay at West Acre,as always a lovely welcome from Bruce and Jeannette. Spacious rooms, great parking and so good to be able to leave the car and walk into town, restaurants, Alnwick Castle etc. Afternoon tea on arrival always welcome, and excellent choice of breakfast each morning.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the garden and light and spacious

A really first class B&B, rooms were a good size and well appointed, beds comfortable, fresh towels daily and great breakfasts. Bruce & Jeannette were extremely hospitable and helpful and the house is situated in a quiet area and provided an ideal location to explore the surrounding area. Parking was easy and their garden was a joy.

After travelling it was very thoughtful to be greeted with a pot of tea in the garden room and a chance to relax. The room was beautifully decorated and with lots of nice touches including two very comfortable chairs, bath robes and a view over the garden. It was perfect. Start the day with the excellent breakfast and then, with the location being just on the edge of Alnwick, take a leisurely walk into the town, to Barter Books and Alnwick Gardens and Castle. No need to use the car. Jeanette and Bruce and West Acre House made our special birthday weekend very special.

Room Tip: Trust Jeanette and Bruce

Excellent is a word I wouldn't use very often in ratings but is the only one to use about all aspects of West Acre House and the hospitality of Bruce and Jeanette. Their attention to detail is superb. It is simply the most comfortable and relaxing place with a lovely garden to enjoy when the weather allows. Within walking distance of Alnwick town and only about 3 miles from the coast at Alnmouth with some nice pubs and eating places.

Room Tip: The Edwardian room was very relaxing, overlooking the garden, but I'm sure all rooms are lovely.

Jeannette and Bruce are excellent hosts. Warm and welcoming, they have created a superb house for guests. The breakfast room has beautiful white linen-laid tables, and the breakfasts are perfectly cooked and presented. What more could you want?

Room Tip: Four rooms, nothing to worry about!
