For those visiting Alnwick Castle, there's no better location since it's practically opposite the main entrance to the castle, and the town centre is only a 5 minute walk away. As the name implies, the windows look out towards the castle. It may be a little hard to spot at first, as the entrance is one of several doors opening directly onto the street. Also, one of the doors (the right-hand one as you face both doors) is a false one, so enter from the left door. Parking is available around the corner from the B&B; you will need a parking permit which is readily available from Linda and Stephen. The room we stayed in was nice and spacious, with thoughtful additions of little books of local tales and legends by the bedside. There is wifi and some decent channels on the TV. While the bed was pretty and the linen soft and comfortable, the mattress was a tad too soft. Standard, but good, full English breakfast is served, and the addition of a fruit salad makes for a satisfying start to the day.
