“'best of everything'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

We spent three nights at Tate House and were very impressed. Our bedroom was tastefully decorated, the bathroom was spotless with nothing out of place. Towels and bedding were emmaculate.
Leo, the owner could not have been more helpful. He was polite, friendly and always found time to give advice on sites to see and places to eat. Every recommendation was spot-on.
I can't leave this review without mentioning the breakfast which was something special.

We were not sure what to expect as this was our first family run B&B,
From the outside on a rainy day it does not look much. however not judging a book by it's cover meant that our greeting by Leo could not have been more inviting, yes we were asked politely if we could remove our wet shoes but then we would expect the same in our own home.
Beyond this the rooms were immaculately clean, attention to detail in every corner with the highest level of decoration and fixtures we have ever seen.
The breakfasts were everything that you could have wished for and we would defiantly recommend the Tate House to anyone visiting the area.

Room Tip: the smallest room, (room1) is definitely adequate for a couple but would recommend trying one of the...

We stayed for one night on our way to Scotland to visit with family. Beautifully luxurious room at the top of the house. The bathroom was a super size and spotlessly clean. Everything from the bedding to the luxurious carpets was fantastic. Would highly recommend this B & B. Leo, the owner was really friendly; nothing was too much trouble. Have not stayed in Alnwick before but we will be back to visit the local attractions.

We enjoyed our two-night stay in the back room of this well-maintained property. The owner, Leo, was very helpful. The cooked breakfast was deserving of the award I saw displayed.

Room Tip: Double room at back is small but quiet. It is above the kitchen but that's not a problem since y...

We were not disappointed when we arrived at Tate House. Other reviews had encouraged us to think this was going to be a good stay and it was - all areas spotlessly clean, a large room with good facilities and a good choice of things to eat for breakfast. A very central base to see Alnwick from and we'll come again when in the area. Thank you Leo for your friendly welcome and information to make our stay more enjoyable.

We stayed at Tate House during a friend's wedding in Alnwick. The room had a higher standard of decor, facilities and and cleanliness than many other friends who were staying in 4 Star hotels in the area. The breakfast was excellent and Leon couldn't have been more welcoming or accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tate House to anyone staying in the Alnwick area.

Room Tip: Rooms vary in size, but all are excellent!

Room was excellent for the price paid, right in the centre of Alnwick and a very helpful chap (Leo) running the place. Room was spotless with excellent quality furnishings would definitley stop by again.
