We stayed at Purdy Lodge while visiting family in nearby Bamburgh. The location was handy for s us as it's right on the A1 but I was pleasantly surprised by how quiet the hotel was during the night.
We checked in quite late and the process was very quick but didn't have the slick, professional feel you'd get in a branded hotel. We were too late to eat in but the bar/restaurant area looked nice and modern.
The bedrooms are clean and fresh but the corridors look pretty tired. Noise was minimal during the night but with such an early checkout time of 10am it seems that everyone gets up at the same time and noise from adjacent rooms and the corridor was quite loud. More annoying was the complete lack of water pressure in the shower - the water actually stopped entirely at one point and was a dribble for the rest of the time. Apparently this isn't the norm but was very disappointing.
There was a bit of a queue at checkout but the staff member was friendly and quick to deal with us once we got to the desk.
All in all, the hotel isn't perfect but it's quite modern and handily located and the price is a fair reflection of what you get so we would probably use it again.
