“Good comfortable stay”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

A modern relaxing hotel/restaurant in a good location and minutes from the centre of Alnwick. We stayed here for one night late February 2013, where we had 2 double rooms. The rooms were large and comfortable which easily beat some 5* hotels I have stayed in. All had a sparkling modern bathroom, super large beds, hair-dryer, LCD TV, tea/coffee making facilities, large wardrobe and biscuits (nice touch). My room was overlooking the entrance to the restaurant, which I heard no noise whatsoever.

We stayed on the winter break deal which was very good value, this included your accommodation, 2 course dinner and breakfast. The dinner was fairly decent with a good choice of dishes. The meals came out super quick (maybe a little too quick in all honest, a matter of minutes). The quality of the food was good. The service throughout our stay was very good, the staff made us feel welcome and relaxed.

If I am ever in Alnwick again I would stay here again.

What a great place. We stayed for one night dinner, bed and breakfast for special winter offer of £44.50 each. The food was excellent and the service was second to none. The rooms and the whole of the inn were excellently decorated and furnished, you couldn't wish for more. We would definitely stay there again. The staff are really helpful and their attention to detail in serving meals and drinks is really quick. The place has a really friendly atmosphere and it is easy to relax in the bar and restaurant. I thought the breakfast was wonderful and much easier as it was buffet style so you didn't have to wait to be served and could get what you wanted. Can't wait to go back. By the way we are senior citizens and like our comfort which this inn provides for you.

Room Tip: We had room on ground floor which was far enough away from the bar/restaurant area to be very quiet...

MY wife and I were visiting our son who lives nearby from 16-20 February 2013, but he was unable to accommodate us for the first night, 16 Feb, due to work commitments so we booked this hotel on line for 1 night accepting their winter break offer of Dinner, Bed & Breakfast at a special rate of £44.50 pppn Total price £89.
The staff were friendly & helpful, the whole hotel was spotlessly clean and we chose a twin bedded room which was very quiet despite being close to the A1 road and had two very large and comfortable twin beds, with excellent furnishings & carpets. The bathroom was modern and spotless with white fluffy towels and everything worked without any problems. The room had an excellent flat screen TV with Freeview and tea and coffee making facilities. My only criticism was only 4 small pots of milk were provided but more were provided by reception on request.
The hotel was quite busy with resident & non rsident diners during the evening but we had no problem finding, and no wait for a table.Service was friendly and as the food was cooked to order we had an acceptable short wait. Our weekend deal allowed us to choose any two courses from starter, main and sweet and we opted for starter and main only with drinks from the bar. The food was well presented and helpings fairly generous though we did think a few courses from all on offer were rather overpriced for what they were.
Breakfast next morning was self service and there was a good choice of cereals and fruit plus full English with a variety of dishes to choose from, plus the usual toast, tea and coffee. One minor criticism was that the full English dishes were being kept warm in containers and some of what we selected was not very warm, in fact only tepid when we would have preferred slightly hotter.
There was a minor hiccup on checking out when we were initally charged for 3 people in a twin bedded room but this was rectifed when the error was pointed out.
The hotel is situated right next to the busy A1 road but we were not disturbed by any traffic noise in our room and there was plenty of car parking all covered by CCTV.
Not sure what the normal price for the room is when the winter weekend deal is not running but believe it is quite a lot more expensive for one night and it was the special deal price that attracted us in the first place. Would stay again if a deal on and not full price

Room Tip: Rooms away from ther bar and main entrance are quieter

We stayed in September 2012 not long after the hotel opened. I could not fault the room at all, it was huge with a really big and very comfortable bed. The bathroom too was large with a good shower over the bath and lovely fluffy towels. Breakfast was fine, buffet style with everything you need. The location was OK just off the main road into Alnwick at a kind of service station, nice and quiet and fine for getting around the area. Great place to stay if you just want a base and will be out for the day, not the kind of place to stay if you want to stay around the hotel all day.

I would recommend this Hotel as a quiet and relaxing establishment. I stayed on xmas eve and xmas day in a double room,the room had everything one would need for a long or short stay. It had a kettle with coffee,tea ,milk and sugar,it also had a large modern tv,hair driyer,iron and ironing board and a combination safe. All the furnishing was new and the Double Bed was extra large,it also had free internet connection.The Hotel was very clean and the Northumberland breakfast was five star,The staff were very friendly and helpful.I will definitely stay at THE HOGS HEAD INN the next time i am in Northumberland.

Room Tip: Some rooms are larger than others.
