“First Visit to Northumberland”
Reviewed February 22, 2008

Having never been to the northumberland Area we were attracted to the hotel due to its close proximity to the coast . We booked bed and breakfast for the days that we we were there and were very pleased that we did as the food was excellent and there were few places around where we could have eaten out . The area itself was very rural and spread out and not commercialised . If you are looking for peace and quiet and plenty of country type walks then this is ideal. We were very fortunate with the weather as it was sunny but cold and there would have been little to do if it had been raining . We found Berwick a bit dissapointing but Lindisfarne was lovely as was Alnick gardens - well worth a visit . The beach at Beadnell itself is best approached from the car park area as this gives the best first impression .
The hotel appears to be quite dark inside as you enter into the main reception and is quite a mixture of styles with no particular theme which perhaps might not be to the taste of some as it was quite quirky . The bedroom however was spacious and clean and the little touches in the bathroom were much appreciated . As the rooms were large it did get quite cold in the evenings and it wasn't as cosy as perhaps it could have been . The shower area was also very small - even for a woman and this was a shame as there was plenty of space to have put in a larger shower tray.- something that would have improved the bathroom space 100%
We found the people very friendly especially the waitresses . The menu was very good with an excellent variety of choice and the whole stay was very good value for money .

  • Liked — The food was excellent and made the hotel
  • Disliked — to be truthful the decor which was neither one thing or another . Lighter paint and more quality accessories would make a big difference

Just spent two nights at The Beadnell Towers, and overall it was very good. The room was big, the bed comfy, it was lovely and warm,
and the bathroom was nice. It was all very clean, if a little tatty around the edges! The knickknacks are a bit eclectic, but at least it has some character! There were no roaring log fires, which I was disappointed by, and the lounge/dining area was a bit overlit (definately not romantic!), but the food was beautiful, breakfast and dinner. Staff were very friendly but not obtrusive. Would recommend.

A nice destination for a romantic getaway ... but make sure you don't get stuck with the room above the kitchen.
The industrial strength fan started vibrating the room at about 6.30pm and when we we complained, we were told it would be shut off at 9.30pm.
At 10.15pm, we were sitting on the bed giggling at situation: the kitchen staff singing, the fan whirring and the clattering about around the bin.
The whole thing started again at 6.30am the next morning, and the room also filled with the stench of frying meat.
A real shame as the hotel and staff were lovely :(

I stayed at this lovely hotel for 4 nights in August 07 with my mother. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean and the food was delicious. We booked the dinner bed and breakfast which is excellent value for money. The restaurant was very popular and full of local people, which in itself is a great recommendation.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Seven of us stayed here for 3 nights while playing golf at the excellent surrounding courses on a half board basis.

The rooms were clean, well cared for and comfortable. Coffee and tea facilities were in each room. The bathrooms were in good condition but the showers were very weak and not really useable.

The restaurant is excellent value and the food very good with a local flavour eg Craster kippers for breakfast, loaclly made sausages etc. The restaurant adjoins the bar and is a friendly family run pub restaurant. The bar has the feel of a local pub and is clearly popular with locals. The atmosphere was very friendly and we spent a lot of the evening playing pool.

This is a lovely base and I would stay there again. greart value great food.

Trying to find reasonably priced accommodation for a group of 26 birdwatchers was proving very difficult until Mick from Beadnell Towers replied to my e-mail enquiry. He bent over backwards to sort us out and gave us a very good deal.
Our experience staying at the hotel far exceeded our expectations with delightfully comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff, and food beyond our wildest dreams. The Table d'Hote menu gave excellent choice and the food itself was cooked to perfection and the quantities were plentiful.
The entertainment on Saturday night was superb for those of us who went to it, while those who did not go were not disturbed by any sound at all.
We would not even contemplate going anywhere else when we next return to Northumberland.
Thank you, Mick and all your staff.

We stayed a Friday night at the Beadnell Towers, having booked a Premium Room at the good low-season price of £70 online.

Our room (#1) was very good: the sleigh bed was attractive and comfortable and the bathroom was clean, quite large, and well-appointed.

We ended up deciding to eat in but our arrival at 8:50pm didn't faze the kitchen and the waiting staff were extremely pleasant at dinner and next morning at breakfast. Both meals were good.

I seem to remember that checkout time is 11am: quite useful if you want a relaxing start to the day, or have been over-doing the real ales in the bar!

Overall, I'd thoroughly recommend the Beadnell Towers, although I can't comment on the 'standard' rooms. The worst I can say is that the bedside lights in our room were too bright (60W) of of quite a weird (if amusing) design!

Beadnell makes a fine base for touring this lovely part of the Northumbrian coast and the village itself has a pretty harbour and fine beach, albeit a little distance from the hotel (but comfortably walkable).
