“All B&B's should be like Bow House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

What an exceptional B&B!!! Conveniently located and the rooms were clean, stylish and extremely generous in size. It had everything we needed and the little touches such as the Sherry and the "just-in-case" earplugs makes Bow House the 5* that it is. Last but not lease, David and Bev -we cannot give enough praises to them. They had been very accommodating and war, providing us with information on what to see, where to eat and tourist books to borrow. We would highly recommend this place. Oh nearly forgot to mention. AMAZING BREAKFAST!!! Award well deserved!!!

We just cannot praise Bow House and its owners highly enough.From the moment you walk through the door, you are treated like VIP guests!
Bow house is elegant and stylish with lovely spacious rooms. Absolutely everything has been thought of to make your trip comfortable and relaxing. There is a DVD player in the room and even sherry provided and a beer offered!
Breakfast is excellent with a wide choice. It is served in a beautiful room and on sunny days, you can eat on the pretty terrace. David and Beverley go that extra mile to make your stay perfect from parking permits to booking restaurants and checking tides and times. Their knowledge of the area is excellent and there is a wealth of information provided. It is just an absolutely fantastic place to stay with wonderful, friendly hosts.

Had a lovely weekend in Northumberland. We stayed at the Bow House in Alnwick. David and Beverly were superb hosts and provided an excellent service. They recommended two excellent restaurants in Alnwick for our evening meals and provided us with a county wide parking permit. Our room and en-suite were clean and comfortable and breakfast was lovely.

We have just spent 2 nights at Bow House and from the moment we arrived to the moment we reluctantly departed, we received 5 star treatment. Such friendly and helpful hosts who even laundered my clothes after an unfortunate mishap with a glass of red wine. We thoroughly recommend this accommodation to everyone--it has such a warm atmosphere!

Room Tip: Our room had a balcony--all seemed of such high standard.

Superb accommodation of an excellent standard. The room was spacious and very comfortable with lots of attenetion to detail. Our hosts could not have been more helpful especially when we arrived on our motorbike having travelled through very heavy rain and were dripping wet! Also a very nice gesture with a bottle of wine when they discovered it had been my husband's birthday. Would not hesitate in recommending this place to anyone and would definitely stay again if visitng the area on another trip.

Stayed 2 nights - David and Beverley have thought of everything from the moment you enter the door - David shows you around and makes you very welcome - from the welcome sherry to departing everything was no trouble - booking our evening meals in the town, parking permits at the ready. Central location to Bookshop, Garden, Castle, Restaurants, Theatre/Cinema & shops. Lovely spacious comfortable room with ensuite shower and seating area. Fresh milk available, use of fridge facility in dinning room. Well worth the trip, very relaxing. Look forward to going again!!

Room Tip: Can recommend any room.
