Just love this place. Quaint village setting which is so beautiful in the cobble square. Plush rooms with quality decor and all the trimmings. Power shower is brilliant. The bar is comfy with a good selection of all drinks and daily papers. Excellent evening meal but a shame some folk seem to think it is OK to dine in jeans,... More

We were lucky enough to attend a wedding dinner here and the food was fabulous. The starter was imaginative and tasty and the main course was beautifully cooked with lovely vegetables. Desserts were different from the norm, very good. The building is fantastic and the service first rate

A wonderful place to stay, warm welcome but not intrusive at all. The rooms were really well put together and cosy. The food was superb and all the staff were great. It's a beautiful part of the world and a lovely little village also. I'd recommend this to anyone!

My husband and I recently stayed here for an anniversary weekend and couldn't have asked for more. As it was a special occasion, we booked one of the 'champion' rooms, as well as some prosecco and chocolates that were chilled and waiting for us on arrival in the room. The attention to detail here is wonderful throughout, with so many... More

The accommodation was everything and more than we expected. The food.Wow oh wow do yourselves a... More

We went for Sunday lunch here and from the start everything was simple perfection. A great bar, (the Crewe Brew is well worth trying), superb lunch with fantastic staff, is so good I am not going to bother trying to describe further. A visit is a must......

This is my new favourite hotel. The staff are just a delight, the food to die for, the ambiance and setting... this is a waste of time, I can't do this justice. Just the best place ever. Going for a lot longer next time!!!

We stayed at the Lord Crewe for 2 nights in their 'Angel' wing. Upon arrival the staff made us incredibly welcome and following a request from my partner there was a chilled bottle of bubbly waiting for us. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was exceptional both evenings. I'm vegetarian and the chef was amazing, offering... More

Stunning location but very disappointed with two vitals: Bar: Glasses dirty & beer lines not clean. Keg Bass disgusting. Hand pull beers cloudy & too home brew like. Catering: Breakfast. No granola. Bacon cheap, streaky and frazzled to a crisp. Dinner: Menu limited and again cheap cuts of meat. These guys need a serious review of their bar & kitchen... More

This is an outstanding hotel on many measures. A warm welcome with a roaring log fire; a crypt bar with good beers and bar staff; excellent rooms with fine bed linen, toiletries and furnishings; very high quality dinner and breakfast, again served skilfully by friendly staff. Overall a great hotel situated in a beautiful medieval village.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Re-opened on 5th April 2014 after a full renovation and refurbishment. Swept up in the wilds of the North Pennine moors, holding court over the honey stone village of Blanchland and crafted by plucky Twelfth Century monks who headed for the Northumbrian hilltops in search of celestial desolation, ours is just the spot for the perfect country hideaway. Disappear into the twists, turns and discoveries of our once-upon-a-time Abbots guest house. Wallow in the warmth of our twenty one bedrooms, soothed lovingly with Pennine hues. Relish in the spoils of The Bishops Dining Room and the notorious Hilyard, where food that harks of heritage and skill laden the tables. Top up in our medieval vaulted pub The Crypt, or simply while away a quiet hour or two in the soft dappled glow of our ancient fireplaces. And with moors that shout out adventure right on the doorstep head out, plot north, walk, cycle, explore, before home to take off your boots, hang your hat and stay awhile. ... more   less
