“Fantastic - home from home”
Reviewed August 20, 2009

From the time of our arrival to the time of depature we were made to feel welcome. Jean and Bill run a very clean and tidy establishment, and provide a very good breakfast. I will certainly book again when I'm next in the area!

Having stayed in many B & B's over the past few years, Aln House is by far the best. Jean & Bill made us very welcome and we enjoyed a very comfortable week. The standard of cleanliness was excellent - everything was spotless. All the rooms were tastefully decorated and the extra touches made it all the more homely.
Every morning we looked forward to our breakfast - a magnificent feast!
All-in-all a wonderful B & B. Many thanks Jean & Bill!

On our second visit to Aln House, the warmth of the welcome from Bill & Jean, the spotlessly clean and very tastefully designed bedrooms and the fantastic breakfasts reminded us why we had come back. The hosts cannot do enough for you and the house is ideally situated for Alnwick center and the Castle and Gardens, and for exploring the rest of Northumberland. It is certainly on of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in.

The owners, Jean and Bill, were welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The meals were cooked to perfection with variety and quality to suit all tastes. The room was light, airy, comfortable and clean. The location was very convenient for the town centre and its many attractions. We would definitely stay there again and recommend to anyone else.

We stayed for 2 nights at Aln House in a twin room. The room was very comfy with excellent mattresses and pillows - this was the third B & B we had stayed in on this trip and we had definitely saved the best for last! The breakfast was outstanding, I loved the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, and the fruit selection, the "full english" also looked very good.
Jean and Bill were welcoming hosts who made you feel as though you were their only guests, making time to advise on places to eat., scenic routes to follow and interesting walks.The cup of tea and biscuits on arrival added to the welcoming feel.
We loved Alnwick and Northumberland and wished we had longer there. We intend to return and would certainly stay at Aln House again.

B&B's don't come any better than this. Bill & Jean did everything they could to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable, and they certainly succeeded. From the very warm welcome on our arrival, an attractive well appointed bedroom, thick soft towels in the en suite, the attention to detail to ensure our comfort and enjoyment stood out.
We had a very large choice for breakfast from an extensive menu. Whether it was the full Northumberland Breakfast, the local Craster Kippers or any other choice from a virtual 'A la Carte' menu, it was excellent. If only all B&B's were as good as this.
