I booked this hotel for my partner's birthday and was looking for a decent place to stay in Alnwick. I was worried about some of the negative reviews left by other people but couldn't find any other reasonable alternatives so I went for it! I'm not sure if they have read previous reviews and acted on them, or if it was a coincidence, but the staff were very welcoming and helpful. They were there on arrival and the best thing was that there were no taxi's available, so they gave us a lift to another restaurant at their suggestion!!!
The room was nicely decorated - a bit of a smell from the toilet though (room 2) and it was true (as was in another review) that the radiators are on full blast, so it is boiling hot! We had to open the window and leave the room to cool while we were out. It's modern in feel, just needs a few adjustments in my view - a valance so you can't see the wheels of the bed and another shelf in the small bathroom. Some tissues and a suitcase stand would also help as I prefer to spend the first 5 mins unpacking and getting organised rather than covering the surfaces in stuff.
The breakfast was very nice and a good selection of hot food. I stay all over the world, so I really am rather picky!!! I would certainly recommend this place.
