“Fantastic Friendly Welcome in Alnwick”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We decided on a last minute bank holiday trip to Alnwick and booked the Georgian House Hotel for one night. I have to say that after reading some of the reviews I was a bit worried! However we received a fantastic warm welcome from the owner Jo and our room was extremely pleasant - nice white bedding and fluffy white towels. I'm not sure what some people expect for £60, but if they are looking for something a bit more luxurious Alnwick can offer you this for around £100 a night. For £60 a night the Georgian House offers you a clean comfortable room, a warm welcome and a fantastic breakfast. The only downside for me was the very small electric shower, but as we were only there for one night this wasn't really an issue. The location is fantastic - just over the road from the castle entrance. There is also a small car park to the rear which Jo manages to ensure everyone gets in and out. Parking can be difficult in a small town like Alnwick so this is a bonus. All in all a decent B&B for your money.

My wife and stayed one night here. Although the room we were given was a reasonable size, it windowed directly onto the street which appeared to be the main route for homeward-bound drunks. The decor was a little jaded and really could do with some updating.
The shower was fitted with one of those flesh-clinging plastic curtains which was grubby to say the least. Although breakfast was more "transport-cafe" than "quaint B&B", it was hot and tasty and plenty of additional toast was available. Car parking was very tricky - if you have a anything bigger than a Ford Focus you'll find it very tight to get into the car park.
Mine hosts were very pleasant and helpful.
For the price I don't think this was good value for money, and won't return.

Room Tip: Dont go for a room at the front of the property

My partner and I visited Alnwick in April 2012, for two nights, to visit the castle and gardens.
We, like most other people, were not greeted on our arrival. But Jo arrived quickly as soon as we called her, and was very welcoming and friendly.
As we were both smokers, the ability to open the back door easily and the private backyard were very useful to us.

We stayed in the green room (room 7), which faces out into the back yard/ carpark.
The room was excellent, we got over the lack of en-suite bathroom because the bathroom for our own use was just across the hall. Our room was cleaned each day, and tea and coffee replenished. And when Jo realised she had only provided us with one cup to make tea, she immediately provided another.
We spent most days outside of the room, but it was perfectly comfortable to spend the evenings in. Our TV worked fine.
The shower space was very small, so I could see that as a downside for a taller or broader guest.

Breakfast was excellent, a proper cooked breakfast, and Jo could not do enough for us in relation to providing tea, coffee, fresh toast and juice, as well as whatever we wanted cooked for us.

The downside is that you MUST book for three nights minimum, and although we weren't staying the third night, we still had to pay for it. And Jo was hard to locate when we were checking out, I felt rude knocking on the door of her and her family's living quarters to check out. The creaky staircase would be off putting to light sleepers.

GOOD: Comfortable room, great breakfast, clean and accommodating.
BAD: Small shower space, host was rarely available, creaky staircase, 3 nights minimum booking.

All in all, we were very happy with our experience.

Room Tip: Try and choose room 7 and be on time for breakfast.

Room was very good,clean well decorated and very comfortable,breakfast was well prepared and presented.
Good value and very close to the centre of Alnwick and the gardens and castle.

The owner Jo was bright, bubbly and helpful - she even moved our car for another guest to get out! Our room was warm with modern decoration and plenty of space. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice and served piping hot and speedily.
My only gripe was a personal one because the mirror was not adjustable so I couldn't sit in the chair and see to do my hair or make-up. As I've recently had major surgery, standing in the bathroom to do that was quite tiring for me.
Thank you for a lovely break and I'm sure we shall stay there again soon.

Stayed here when attending a wedding at Alnwick Gardens and were very happy with the overall experience. Due to the time of the wedding I e-mailed the owner to ask if we could book in early to get ready for the wedding, tHis was no problem. We were met when we got there by the owner who was very friendly and helpful. The room (no. 4) was clean and tidy, with a very comfortable bed. The only slight downside was the en-suit which was very narrow, but for a one night stay was manageable. Breakfast was a full English and went down very well after a day of drinking......
