“Oh dear-dont touch rooms 7 and 8”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We booked 2 nights and left after 1. Weve got photos and may add later but Room 8 was bad. Shower could do with a scrape to remove black scum and wiring painting just leave you with impression that owners dont care. Other rooms may be better but if you get offered number 8 dont bother. Saniflo loos are quite unique and noisy. Seems earlier reviewers have issues with these not working. We went to Lindisfarne the day after and met with occupants of Room 7. No its not us-we are not narky-in fact never done a review in this country before but do yourself a favour and pass this one by. Breakfast was good and linen clean but the rest might have done in the 70's but the worlds moved on since then. Treacherous.

Due to emergency circumstances (the owner had just come out of hospital with a new baby after a c. Section) we had to phone when we arrived and let ourselves in to our lovely spacious ground floor double room. Our shower room was a bit compact but did the job. We liked the fact that we had a sofa and soft seat to sit on to watch telly. We discovered the Queens Head very near where we ate the two nights we stayed. It was friendly and the food lovely. Our breakfast was fine and if you want to bring in a carry out for an evening meal you are free to use the diningroom. Will use this guest house if we are in the area again.

I recently stayed two nights at the Springfield Guesthouse ,We checked in after 7pm we called the number for the guesthouse and within five minutes I was met with an extremley warm welcome despite the landlady being very heavily pregnant. The room was very clean and very comfortable, with all the facilites you expect from a four star guesthouse , we both slept very well , the full english breakfast was exactly what we needed to set us up for the day long distance walking . We have booked up again to come back again and would certainly recommend this guest house to friends and family , Good luck with the new arrival .

Springfield Guest House represents real value for money. We received an extremely warm, friendly welcome from Gavin and Danielle who did all they could to ensure that our stay was as enjoyable as possible. Easy to find, and ideally located in the heart of Rothbury, it made a great base for us from which to explore the numerous local attractions - would have no hesitation in recommending this guest house to others. Thanks to Gavin for the hearty breakfasts, and an extra special mention to Danielle, the very heavily pregnant owner, who went out of her way to provide a high level of service. Thanks guys and good luck with the new arrival!!

We had booked two rooms (for four people) for a Saturday night stay, arrived in the late afternoon (around 6pm) and no one was around to meet us. We called the phone number for the B&B to say that we had arrived and were told that the toilets in the two rooms we had booked were not working and that instead we would be staying across town at a pub that had accommodation. When we arrived at the pub the staff there said that there were frequent issues with the toilets at Springfield B&B and that they often had to provide rooms for Springfield's guests at the pub as substitute accommodation. Unfortunately, although we had booked en suite rooms at Springfield, one of the rooms at the pub was not en suite and also, unfortunately, there was a band playing that night at the pub and people were making noise at the pub until after midnight so we all had trouble getting to sleep. We called the landlady of Springfield B&B the next day and said that we were not satisfied with the standard of accommodation at the substitute site and that we would speak with her later in the week when we had booked another night's stay at Springfield B&B (after finishing our week-long long-distance walk). When we arrived later in the week, on a Friday evening (arrived around 7pm), once again, no one was around to greet us. We phoned the landlady and asked her which rooms we were in and she said the keys were in the doors. We asked if we needed a key for the front door and she said that we wouldn't need a key because someone would come round and lock the front door at 11.30pm. Our group of four stayed in rooms #1 and #4. The saniflo system in the bathroom in room #1 stopped working during the second shower taken by the people in the room; it completely stopped draining. We weren't sure if the system would start working again so we had to ask our friends staying in the other room if we could use their bathroom if we needed to. We checked the front door to the B&B after midnight and discovered that it was not locked (contrary to what the landlady had promised over the phone), so anyone could have walked into the B&B. In the morning, once again, the landlady was not there. The hired help served us breakfast, which was an average Full English Breakfast, but we had to once again phone the landlady to speak with her about our stay. When we told her that we were not satisfied with the standard of the substitute accommodation at the pub the Saturday before, she said that she had paid £14 more for us to stay there and would not accept the fact that we felt that the standard was not comparable to what we had paid for and expected at the B&B. We told her about concerns: that the bathroom in room #1 had stopped working after the second shower and she was not apologetic in any way and we mentioned the fact that the front door to the B&B had never been locked despite her saying it would be and she denied that it had not been locked. Overall, we felt that our concerns had not been listened to and after two nights' stay we never once saw the landlady and when phoned to voice our concerns we were told that we were being "awkward". We would never ever stay at this B&B again and would not recommend it to anyone. I have no idea how this B&B ever earned four stars.

We stayed two nights at the end of July, nice friendly welcome from Danielle, good sized room (No 1), breakfast on both mornings was of a very good quality, good helpings and kept us going all day, thanks Gavin !
Rothbuy is a lovely village, try the Italian - over the river, turn left and its on the right, would recommend it as we would the Springfield, would definately return.
(The owners even invite you to use their dining room for take aways in the evening if you wish)

Room Tip: Rooms 1 & 2 are on the ground floor
