“Very satisfied”
Reviewed October 23, 2009

This is a comfortable cosy Hotel with good food and fairly priced, situated in close proximity to Bamburgh Castle which was well worth visiting.

We had no complaints and found everything to our complete satisfaction

We stayed in the Forster Suite

This hotel suited all our requirements.It was clean and very comfortable with our Room ( 5 ) having a walk-in power shower. the staff were very obliging, we stayed for 3 days (2 nights) at this hotel, it overlooked the castle, lovely little village with a few other B&B's and hotels which we popped in for a drink and we had our meals at the Lord Crewe which was very adequate, I would recommend this hotel, you can walk to the beach in 5 mins and the walks are pretty spectacular.

We have just stayed at the Lord Crewe for an annual re-union of 5 couples, all ex-Bank Managers and wives! We have stayed at places all round the country and rate this hotel as probably the best value for money.

I organised it and found that this hotel like most others in the area had mixed reviews on Trip Advisor. However, I worked on the basis that the hotel was in a fantastic location, overlooking Bamburgh Castle, had been recently re-furbished and the room rates seemed relatively cheap.

I'm happy to say that all members of the group found it an excellent choice, it was all the things mentioned above and service was superb too. If we had any quibbles, it was that the bar is closed from 3 pm till 6 pm but there are other pubs/cafes in the village. The food was generally very good, apart from the odd pasta dish.

I'm happy to recommend this hotel to anyone, particularly given the very reasonable pricing.

We stayed in a local cottage and were looking for bar meals in the area. We saw a sign outside of the Lord Crewe for Forsters Bar. It looked ok but as soon as we arrived we were ignored by the waitress so we weren't sure what to do or where to go to order etc as there were no signs and the bar wasn't obvious! Eventually she said 'sit anywhere' but there was only one table left so we took that (we thought with it being so busy it was a good sign!). Watched a few more couples/families come in and stand at the door wondering what to do and they were eventually told to go into the 'restaurant area' which was in darkness so they walked straight out of the door again. We ordered burgers and chips, and that is what we got. But the burgers tasted like Tesco value and the chips weren't much better. We had our meal delivered by the same miserable waitress who didn't ask us if we wanted any sauces to go with our (very dry!) meal and nor did she come back to check everything was ok (perhaps good that she didn't!!).
Overpriced and pretty awful food and ambience.

My husband took me to Bamburgh for a night as part of my 30th birthday present and we arrived at the Lord Crewe, which is sat practically in the shadow of the castle, without a booking. We parked in the free parking spaces at the front of the hotel but there is also a car park at the back belonging to the hotel. The lady on reception was really friendly and allocated us a superior double but as we brought our bags in, she offered to swap our room for the suite for no extra cost. Upgrade, marvellous! The room was a great size with a view over the main street. The suite had obviously been refurbished recently because everything looked quite new. The bathroom was great with a modern double sink unit and a power shower that practically massaged your shoulders as you washed your hair. The bed was really comfortable, the pillows lovely and soft and we both had a really good nights sleep. Breakfast the next morning was great, with a selection of cereals and juice followed by a cooked breakfast and tea. The staff on reception as left were very friendly and wished us a good journey. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the north east or looking for somewhere to stay in Bamburgh.
