Reviewed December 8, 2013

This is an outstanding bed and breakfast - the hosts - Bill and Jean make you very welcome and all the rooms are beautifully appointed - cannot recommend it highly enough.

The breakfasts were wonderful!!! Thanks

A lovely warm welcome, a convenient central location, a large comfortable room and a fantastic breakfast made our stay here a memorable one.

Jean & Bill are generous hosts and very knowledgeable about the area. The room was large and comfortable with lots of extras to make the stay special: sherry and glasses, cookies in a jar, a cup of tea on arrival. We'd definitely come back here and would recommend to friends.

Stayed for a couple of days. Our room was beautiful as was the rest of the hotel. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Hospitality great. Bill and Jean were very friendly and helpful. Every detail was thought of including a glass of sherry in our room. Excellent breakfast with choices to suit everyone. Lovely lounge with scented candles and yet more sherry - perfect for relaxation after a long day sightseeing. Looking forward to a repeat visit next year!

We have just return from a wonderful 3 night stay at Aln House. Jean & Bill are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. Our bedroom was beautiful and spotlessly clean, I can only echo everyone else's comments on here. I can't say anything other than stay here if you're going to Alnwick!

We visited Aln House for 4 nights in half term week. Jean and Bill were ideal hosts - friendly, helpful and relaxed. Our room was well furnished and had lots of things that you wouldn't necessarily expect from a B&B, e.g. bathrobes, a torch. There was a wide variety of drinks on the hospitality tray, quality toiletries, a very comfortable bed (too many hotels and B&Bs think that a hard bed = a good bed; it's not true!) and two easy chairs. When booking, Jean recommended several restaurants, all of which we tried and found very good. Jean warned us that our bathroom (room 5) was small, with a separate loo. Nevertheless, the bathroom had a good shower and everything you could have wished for.
There is a very comfy lounge, with plenty of tourist information. The breakfast was gorgeous. We didn't have cooked breakfast, but the selection of cereal and fruit was excellent. We like weak black Earl Grey tea and we were supplied with accompanying lemon - a first in any B&B. We shall ceratinly recommend this B&B to friends and hope to reurn ourselves. An added bonus was the proximity to Alnwick town centre - 10 minutes walk, so we could access buses to enable us to do linear coastal walks.

A really welcoming place! Jean and Bill were lovely hosts; courteous, generous and helpful. Great advice for places to visit and eat. The house had a homely, relaxed feel yet it was immaculate. Our room and bathroom were sumptuous, beautifully decorated and with quality furnishings.
Breakfast was really delicious; quality produce and beautifully presented. Well located for an easy stroll into Alnwick centre. It was a short stay but we came away totally relaxed and rejuvenated. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 3, with gorgeous bathroom and beautiful decor was great.

Bill and Jean have clearly deserved the praise and awards they have received from the industry and guests alike for their B&B. Sadly, we only stayed for one night but it was very evident that they had invested their time, in getting the little things right. The room we stayed in was wonderfully decorated and obvious to us that much thought and care had been applied. There is no reason to think that the other rooms were of a lesser standard.
The attention to detail and desire to offer a complete and personable service continued throughout our stay.
And finally breakfast - The varied choices, the way in which the table was laid out, and the actual presentation of the food itself, made the breakfast experience probably our best yet.
Thank you.
