From the moment we arrived we knew we had made the right choice. Charles made us feel very welcome and the room was light, airy and spacious, well appointed and spotlessly clean. Christine's breakfasts were excellent. Plenty of choice, beautifully cooked and always arrived piping hot. They were both excellent hosts and provided comprehensive information (verbally and in the room booklet) on local amenities and places to eat. Highly recommended. We'll definitely return

Oronsay House is a lovely B&B and both Charles and Christine were very welcoming and the breakfast made by Christine was fantastic, just what I needed after attending a wedding at Doxford Hall the previous evening. My room (5) along with the rest of the house was spotlessly clean, and the bed very comfortable. The room was excellent value for money and if I ever need accommodation in Alnwick again I would definitely stay here again. I would also happily recommend this to anyone else looking to stay in this part of Northumberland.

Excellent in every respect! From being greeted on the doorstep and having help with our bags, to the moment we left, Oronsay House surpassed our expectations. Charles and Christine were marvellous hosts and have put a lot of work into creating a wonderful high quality B&B. We look forward to visiting again.

Dear Christopher B,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a kind review. We really do appreciate it, especially as your stay with us was so short.
We do look forward to seeing you again perhaps for a longer stay this time - there is such a lot to see and do in this relatively undiscovered part of the country.

Best regards,
Charlie and Christine

We spent 5 nights at Oronsay House. Each morning, there were a variety of cooked breakfasts along with an enormous bowl of fresh cut fruits which was a lovely way to start the day.
The room was great and the bed was really comfortable along with a good strong shower and good, heavy towels which made the room very homely. Charles and Christine were always very kind and welcoming. An excellent place to stay.

My parents and my husband and I stayed here last weekend on a family holiday and thoroughly recommend it.
We stayed in Room 4 on the top floor which was a lovely room, very cosy, homely and spotlessly clean. Bed was really comfortable and I loved the finishing touches like speciality teas and White Company toiletries.
The breakfasts were amazing. I particularly recommend the pancakes with warm berry compote which were delicious!
Charles and Christine were excellent hosts and really went that extra mile.
Alnwick itself is a lovely place, definitely recommend the Alnwick garden and a boat trip across to the Farne Islands to see the seals!

We spent two days at Oransay House and can wholeheartedly recommend it. Rooms first class with good quality beds and towels. Breakfast was fantastic and there is so much choice. The Fresh fruit salad was unbelievable. Charles and Christine could not have been more helpful. The best B & B we have ever been too

I have not travelled much until now but as far as I can tell, this was the most pleasant stay I've ever had.
Charles and Christine were very attentive to make sure that everything runs smoothly. Indeed it felt like home. The breakfast was extraordinary in variety and has been lovely decorated. The room had everything I needed, with a welcome book comprising interesting facts, restaurant reviews and helpful numbers in Alnwick. The only thing I had to get accquainted to were the separate taps for cold and warm in the basin, but I learned this is common in this area.
I will always happily remember those days in Alnwick, if I'm coming back in the future I know where I will stay.
