“Just right”
Reviewed June 4, 2011

Excellent accommodation. Hosts are friendly and very helpful (but not overbearing). Rooms are of a very high standard; fresh, comfortable, clean and roomy. Breakfast was just yummy, especially the fruit salad.
We are looking forward to staying again.

We stayed here on our way on to another hotel for a party, and it was so lovely we hope to stay again. David and Beverley are superb hosts, who cannot do enough for their guests.
The rooms are of a very high standard, with comfy beds, and a lovely sofa to sit and watch the TV. Breakfast was lovely, with all needs met and more.

Bow House is literally 2 minutes walk from the centre of Alnwick, which is well supplied with eating places and nice shops too. Definitely recommended! Small tip - if the web site says only two nights can be booked, give them a ring as they happily took our one night booking.

Bow House is a top quality B&B, the best we have ever stayed in. The quality is amazing and Bev and David are wonderful hosts who have thought of every finishing touch you could think off. Bottles of water (and beer) in the fridge, wine glasses and cork screw. The rooms are all new and finished to a very high standard, all with oak furnishings.

I'm a really fussy person but I would recommend Bow House to anyone thinking of staying in Alnwick.

Well done Bev and David, you're doing a great job, love Kev and Tracy from Blackpool

Just stayed for two nights and found everything to be more than perfect. The hosts have got it just right - they are approachable, friendly and helpful. The decor is excellent and all new (2011). Sofas in bedroom to sit in comfort to watch t.v. Lovely ensuite bathroom with everything anyone could want. Luxurious bathrobes. Breakfast is all you could want - with it seems any request catered for. Good information available for guests - good restaurant recommendtions. The property is well located in the centre of Alnwick making it very easy to walk in a few minutes to the town.

Bow House is a very stylish and comfortable guest house. We had the warmest of welcomes from David and Bev, who could not have been more friendly and helpfull. Breakfast was historic, one of the best we’ve had anywhere! The house is situated in the heart of Alnwick, and is very conveniently placed for visiting many of Northumberland's historic attractions. We had a thoroughly enjoyable break, and have no hesitation in recommending Bow House as a real home from home.
