“Fantastic!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

What a gem! We found this delightful B&B from Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We were given a friendly welcome by the owner after parking outside the property. Permits were given for parking here and elsewhere in the wider area. We have never been anywhere where there is so much attention to detail - even earplugs if the church clock was a problem. We couldn't think of anything we could possibly need that wasn't provided. The room was very spacious and everything was of high quality. There was a wide choice for breakfast and it was very nicely cooked. The town was only a 2 minute walk away. We would highly recommend Bow House to anyone.

Can't say enough good things about Bow House! The rooms were clean, well appointed and spacious. David and Beverly were friendly, gracious, and helpful hosts. Everything we could possibly need was already thought of and the breakfasts were wonderful as well. Highly recommended!

A friend and I stayed here for 2 nights and were very impressed with the quality of the rooms and comprehensive fittings. Everything we could possibly need was provided and there were thoughtful touches such as fresh milk in the fridge and free water in the bedrooms. David and Bev made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to be helpful: telephoning Bamburgh Castle to check it would be open when Prince Charles was there, making restaurant reservations and arranging a taxi for our departure. Bow House is in the centre of Alnwick so everything is in walking distance, including the Bus Station where there are buses to Bamburgh and other places along the coast. Finally the breakfasts with fresh fruit and local produce cooked to order made our stay complete.

Room Tip: There are 4 King size rooms but David and Bev will happily make one into a twin without compromising...

Stayed 2 nights with David and Bev, cannot fault a single thing with this fantastic B&B. Luxurious bedrooms, immaculate decor, spotlessly clean, delicious breakfast and lovely hosts. Location was 2 minutes walk from the town and only 5 minutes from Alnwick Castle and gardens.

David & Beverley could not have taken better care of us and been more helpful. Bow House is a lovely establishment and their breakfasts are truly wonderful with such a marvellous choice. Their bedrooms are excellent and the extra touches such as the welcome drink, fresh milk, extremely comfortable beds really do enhance ones stay. Bow House and Alnwick offer many things to do and are an extremely good centre for visiting both the coast and the many wonderful inland places and have some extremely good places to eat in an evening. I hope that it will not be too long before I am re-visiting Bow House.

Room Tip: All the rooms are of an equally excellent high standard.

I cannot recommend this place enough. Our hosts could not have taken better care of us, nothing was too much trouble.
The little touches such as; welcome drink, fresh milk for tea facilities in room, outside seating area, soft fluffy towels, comfy beds, fantastic breakfasts - I could go on & on!
The concert at the castle was cancelled last minute this weekend however we still enjoyed being in Alnwick (can recommend Di Sopra & the Art House for dinner, The fleece pub for drinks) & staying at Bow House definitely was the right choice.

We were made to feel extremely welcome during our two night stay at Bow House. The room was superb and the breakfast certainly lived up to expectations!

The hosts David and Beverley were really attentive and provided useful information about the surrounding area.

Would definitely recommend Bow House when exploring Alnwick.
