I stayed here last weekend with my partner; we'd been recommended to go there by his parents, who are frequent visitors. Due to some issues with work we were later arriving than anticipated - we phoned Audrey who was fine with this, and met us with a lovely cheerful greeting when we arrived at around 8pm. There are maps and leaflets available, and Tom and Audrey will give lots of helpful recommendations about the best places to visit or eat out at.
The rooms are lovely (we were in the Red Room), with lots of little touches that make you feel right at home such as fresh milk and chilled bottled water available. The bathrooms were lovely, the showers were huge, and the beds were extremely comfortable. Breakfast was definitely my favourite feature - I can recommend the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, Tom was a genius preparing that and it was fantastic. The breakfast room is lovely too (look for the mice outside!), nice and sunny overlooking the beautiful garden. The location is excellent, close enough to all of the features of Alnwick that are so lovely to visit, but tucked away from the town centre in a quieter area.
I had a fantastic stay at Greycroft, and we can't wait to plan our next trip! Probably the best B&B I've ever stayed in, so much attention to detail to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Lovely!
