Stayed here as part our tour around NE.
Good quality B&B in central spot in Alnwick. Friendly hosts and nice sized room that was in the annex section of the house at back. lovely and quite at night which is important in Alnwick as the main road that goes through the centre of it is quiet busy.
Good breakfast next day. They ask you to order the evening before which is fine by us from the usual range of options.
Car park at back so no hassle parking. It is accessed via the side. If you haven't stayed there before it is very easy to drive straight past it though as the entrance is very narrow.
Ate at the treehouse restaurant which is fantasastic. Great setting and something different, the food was very good as well though. Nice curry house in town the name of which i can't remember, made a nice change from all the pub food we ate while away
Get a room that faces the back as any B&B on the main streets in Alnwick have lots of traffic go...

Thank you for your review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. Although you did not have a problem in booking your breakfast order the night before, we are aware that it doesn't suit everyone. It is a balancing act as we have up to 13 people staying here at any one time and 6 different menu options from slow roasted tomatoes to french toast to full cooked breakfast and even within this, guests can order specific items. So, if everyone came down at the same time and wanted a whole range of different dishes, it would mean quite a wait for some as we do cook everything from fresh and not a microwave in sight.

But to follow through on your comment, we will make it clearer that it is not 'compulsory' to book the night before and that if something different is wanted in the morning - that's fine. At the end of the day, we do want everyone staying here to enjoy it and feel comfortable.
