Audrey and Tom made us all feel welcome as soon as we turned up at Greycroft. The rooms are well equipped and were exceptionally clean. The B&B is 3 minutes walk from the high street with convenient parking. Both breakfasts were superb. THroughly recommended; I will be returning.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

This is my 5th stay at Greycroft and each time I love it even more and don't want to leave. Alnwick makes an excellent base to explore Northumberland with great Restaurants and lots of places to visit and explore. Greycroft is a beautiful house and the home cooked breakfasts with local ingredients set you up for the day ahead. Tom & Audrey's local knowledge proved invaluable on my first visit to suggest places for me to visit but each time I return they recommend more new places that I can visit and fall in love with. They have parking available but I have also been twice by Train to Alnmouth Station and found the local public transport to be reliable with lots of places within reach without a car if necessary.

Room Tip: I stayed in the single room which was large and airy. Most hotels provide a matchbox size room when you book a single but Greycroft is the exception. The double bed is very comfy and the DVD player with the TV is handy if you don't want to go out in the evening.

Audrey and Tom made all feel welcome from the minute we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble for them and both have a wealth of of good information of places to visit and where to eat out. Set in a great location all of Alnwicks restaurants and many of the visitor sites are within easy walking distance. Great rooms with quality fixtures and fittings and a BREAKFAST to die for!! It proves once again you only get out of it of what you put in, and Audrey and Tom certainly do that

Room Tip: All the rooms are Excellent

Greycroft easily surpassed our highest expectations in all regards. Tom and Audrey are the most wonderful hosts, ensuring our stay in Alnwick was one never to be forgotten. In pretty much all respects Greycroft reflects the wonder, magic and modesty of the beautiful county of Northumberland. Nothing was too much trouble for Tom and Audrey. They greeted us with warmth and a tray of coffee and biscuits, provided great information on places to eat, served breakfast just perfectly. Greycroft, such an enchanting home and Tom and Audrey as wonderful hosts. really do deserve all the accolades they recieve on this site. A great big thank you. Richard

Greycroft met all expectations created by the glowing reviews seen here which is no mean feat.
Great rooms - kept to a high standard with quality fittings - excellent shower.
Great location - close to Alnwick town centre AND Barters Books.
But above all it's the attitude of the hosts that put Greycroft above so many places to stay.
Some of the big expensive hotels would do well to take just a fraction of Audrey and Tom's efficient charm.

In a very desperate attempt at providing constructive feedback:
I'd have liked a bath even though the shower was first rate and better than I've had in five star hotels.
The wi-fi was a bit hit and miss but I have problems with that at home too.

As you can see I'm not left with much to go on! I think the best testimony you'll see here is the family which took over Greycroft for their daughters wedding - a very important time and Greycroft didn't disappoint.

I don't give a five rating lightly - this place really deserves it.

Room Tip: We stayed in Green Room - large but cosy too.

Thanks for your 'Excellent' Review.

We can't put a bath in the Shower Room - designed for shower!

But we have today installed a 'Netgear Universal WiFi Ranger Extender' in the hope of extending WiFi from the Guest Lounge and some bedrooms to all bedrooms.

We appreciate good reviews and constructive criticism. Yours, both, were appreciated!

Thanks,

Tom & Audrey
