Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We stayed here for three days in early May. It really is a wee gem of a place and Kristen the owner is very helpful , attentive and accommodating . We have no hesitation in recommending the Grey Bull Haltwhistle and hope to return some time soon.

We arrived at The Grey Bull quite damp from walking in heavy rain at Homesteads on Hadrian’s Wall. It was not a good start as we stood by the locked front door unable to rouse anyone (the buzzer might have been affected by the rain). In the end we had to ring. Kristen was very apologetic and made us a hot cup of tea to warm us. Our room on the first floor had modern furnishings and a compact en-suite. While overlooking the road there was virtually no passing traffic so was quiet. Breakfast was cooked to order and there were some very nice local jams (not plastic packs) available.

Stayed: September 2013, traveled as a couple

I've been meaning to write this review for a month now, and it would probably have gone the way of most things I intend to do but don't because I forget, if The Grey Bull hadn't been so outstanding.

I came to Haltwhistle because I was walking the Wall and it was a great central location. Haltwhistle was a really friendly place with nice pubs and chirpy chatty locals.

The Grey Bull was very clean and very cosy. Really, genuinely nice people running it, and a lovely breakfast too.

Couldn't recommend it more highly.

1st class B&B, and Kristen was a fabulous hostess. Smashing rooms.....great breakfast....what more can a person ask for. Highly recommended to singles, couples and families.
We were there for a break away for my 40th birthday, and our hostess even started the break off with a lovely surprise....a cake.
Would not hesitate to go back here any day.

Room Tip: Room 2....excellent!! Warned about traffic noise, but heard nothing at all. Brill.

Kirsten is the consummate host. She worked out what train we were on and came to pick us up from the station without us asking and dropped us off for free at the b&b.
Room was great. Breakfasts substantial and quality. Hard to fault.

The Grey Bull B&B Inn is wonderful place to stay in Haltwhistle. I have stayed at other inns and B&B in the town of Haltwhistle and this one is wonderful. The owner loves what she does and it shows in quality of the place and super customer service. From the warm welcome to the complete English Breakfast everything was done with a personal touch. Next time I am in Haltwhistle I will stay at the Grey Bull. If you are hiker or cyclist you will find there accomdations very nice because they even have a place to store you equipment.

Room Tip: None of the room have A/C, the bathroom are a nice size and the bedroom area is OK. The room in ends...

Kirsten was waiting on the doorstep when we arrived having been directed from another B&B that was full. She has a wonderful smile and is a very friendly lady - nothing is too much trouble. The bedrooms were lovely and a very thoughtful basket has been put together with everything that you could need and may have forgotten to bring ( Face wipes/shampoo/ elastoplasts etc) the breakfast was great served by another very smiley friendly lady. Although we had rooms on the front Main Street, we had no trouble sleeping - it wasn't noisy at all. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and the shower was great. There were a lot of steps up to the room which might put some people off.

Room Tip: Higher floors are via lots of steps !
