We stayed in Tate House for a long weekend in summer 2012 and had a very pleasant stay.
The accommodation is clean and tidy and though it is on a main road, it is still very quiet.
Leo runs the place by himself and does a great job, including an excellent breakfast.
It is within easy walk to the town centre and castle attractions, and Barter's Books.
Take your slippers with you as you are requested to remove outdoor shoes on entry.

Room Tip: If you are staying for more than a couple of days ask for one of the larger rooms. You'll get m...

Leo greeted us like old friends again on our recent stay and made us feel very special with his warm welcome. As before, the decor is modern but still suits the traditional property and the whole place is immaculately clean: Tate House is our first choice when visiting Alnwick.
Location is excellent being just outside the walls in Bondgate. Car parking is by agreement with the pub across the road and is large and trouble-free. Breakfasts include a wide choice including fruit and I can heartily recommend the bacon & eggs washed down with proper filter coffee. If you're looking for a relaxing base in Alnwick, Tate House B&B is great value.

Room Tip: For light sleepers, ask for the room at the back of the house although the front rooms, especially t...

Wetayed at Tate House for a complete week, and found our room spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The owner was helpful, friendly, very informative about the surrounding area which helped us to explore Northumberland to the full. Breakfast was well cooked and offered a full range. We would recommend Tate House to anyone who wanted to stay in this beautiful area.

We stayed two nights in Tate House B&B. The room was very clean, the owner was helpfull (and seems to understand our "belgian-english" language) and charming. Excellent breakfast. Easy parking across the road. Good restaurants in the neighbourhood and a lot of fine places to discover !!

Stayed 2 nights in the room at the top facing the main road (Bondgate Without) - complete with nude drawing! It was a bit warm up there so had to open the window which made things a bit noisy. Leo the owner was very chatty and helpful. The place was very clean and tidy. Breakfast was excellent. Parking was available across the road behind the pub.

We stayed here for 2 nights and was impressed with the cleanliness and standard of the room. Little extras that made it stand out was the addition of a box containing small toiletries, candles, a box of tissues and a makeup mirror on a stand, all very useful! Our host was friendly and charming, gave us good advice of where to eat and what to see. The breakfast was perfectly cooked, especially the eggs! Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: All the rooms are to a high standard
