“Well appointed apartment in central location”
Reviewed May 28, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well appointed. We were greeted with a welcome basket of essential and luxury items including some gluten free cakes for me !! (very thoughtful and much appreciated ) We met the owner during our stay and she was very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to eat etc. The apartment was well located for many tourist attractions including Alnwick Castle and gardens, Cragside(NT ) Chillinghurst, Bamburgh Castle(NT) , the Farne Islands,Holy Island and Lindisfarne also delicious gluten free fish and chips at Neptunes in Seahouses!! We would definitely recommend a stay at Middle'In and hope to return ourselves

“Perfect location, home from home with lots of thoughtful extras”
Reviewed April 29, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The location couldn't have been better just a few minutes stroll from the shops and eateries but far away enough from the hustle and bustle. We weren't amused by noisy revellers leaving a private party at the castle late on the Saturday night/very early Sunday morning but we made up for it by enjoying people watching from the window seat as they arrived when we guessed that a broken night's sleep was likely. It only happened once so wasn't a problem.

The Middle'In was exceptionally well appointed with many thoughtful extras provided, especially in the kitchen which enabled us to cook easily on several evenings. Every last detail and thought went into making it a comfortable and enjoyable stay from the board games, fresh flowers and welcome pack. Thank you so much making it such a lovely place to stay, I have already recommended it to a friend who is planning to visit.

“Great and cosy apartment, great location!”
Reviewed April 2, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The booking itself went fine, with key collection and even better the appended parking card! You were able to park very close to the apartment, so just great!

The apartment itself is just great! Lovely bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen. Very cosy and most important the view on the castle of course! Besides it is very clean and you feel home really quick! A little note though, we mist some basic stuff in the kitchen, like salt, pepper, etcetera. Also you walk in just 5 minutes to the lovely city center of Alnwick. Unfortunately Alnwick is too far away from Northumberland to do a lot of walking.

There is not more to say. Just a lovely apartment which definitely made our vacation great!

Best:
- Lovely apartment
- Great view on the castle!
- Great location

Least:
- Nothing!

We stayed for 3 nights and really could not fault it. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and the location was excellent. We would very happily stay here again.

“Cosy and convenient holiday apartment opposite Alnwick castle”
Reviewed November 13, 2014 for a stay in November 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Came to Alnwick for a few days' break at the beginning of November.

This is a really cosy and comfortably furnished apartment, in central Alnwick opposite the castle. A parking permit is provided which is extremely useful - there is parking just a few yards from the apartment. The owner kindly provided us with a welcome basket which was a lovely touch after a long journey from the south.

Good for self-catering - there are pots and pans, utensils and a dishwasher - also there are some large supermarkets (Sainsbury's and Morrison's) a short drive away plus a Co-op convenience store a short walk away.

WiFi is not provided at this apartment, though there is a BT hotspot nearby - a strong recommendation to anyone looking to explore Northumberland is that they do their research in advance and make their plans with paper maps. Helpfully, there is a lot of information on local walks plus a road map provided in the apartment.

GPS signal and phone signal in general, once out of Alnwick, is almost non-existent. Maps are essential for exploring Northumberland national park in particular.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it.

“A comfortable, snug holiday apartment, very convenient for Alnwick Castle”
Reviewed October 8, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The proprietor has taken care to make guests feel really welcome with the best welcome pack we have ever experienced - wine, biscuits, chocolate cake and flowers. The flat is warm, spotlessly clean, well equipped and extremely well placed for Alnwick Castle as well as the wonderful Northumbrian coast and the Cheviot Hills. The super king-sized bed is really comfortable, although a lighter quilt as an alternative would be helpful for warm nights. Bedroom radiator valve was jammed in open position which needs sorting and the fridge may also need a bit of a service (maybe just a proper defrost) but we were able to overcome both minor problems.

Thank you for your review, glad you enjoyed your stay. The radiator and fridge are now in tip top condition. In fact the Middle'In is being completely redecorated for the New Season. Hoping you'll be back and will use the £50 discount we offer for all those who have stayed and wish to return for a full weeks holiday.
Kind Regards, Joanna

“Superb location!”
Reviewed September 16, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our second stay at he Middle'In. Superbly equipped, and ideally situated in the centre of Alnwick. A wonderful base for exploring Northumberland. The free Resident Parking Permit is especially useful, and the generous welcome basket was once again much appreciated. Our host even organised a week of glorious sunshine!
