We stayed at Aln House for two nights as a short getaway, and were delighted with our choice. Our king size room was very spacious and comfortable, with lovely decor throughout the room and bathroom. There was an excellent selection of drinks in the room, including a selection of herbal/fruit teas and a decanter of sherry. The owners were excellent hosts, making us feel very welcome.
The useful folder of info, including recommendations for evening meals, was in the drawer of the dressing tables - do have a hunt about as it was very helpful. There is also a very pleasant guest lounge available, although when we escape from our teenagers we generally prefer to hide in our room. There was a good range of toiletries in the bathroom, and robes were provided - somthing that I would only expect in a much bigger and more expensive establishment!
A good choice was on offer for breakfast. We both had the full Northumbrian on day one, and on day two I had scrambled egg and smoked salmon while my other half had the kippers. We'd recommend all of these, and I personally would like to stay longer and have the chance to work my way through the options.
Alnwick is a small town, and Aln House is easy to find on the main road in, and just five or ten minutes walk to the centre. It's a beautiful place and well worth a visit.
