Firstly, let me say that the location could not have been better, and there were brilliant views – of the Castle from our bedroom and of the Priory from the breakfast room, but that was about as far as it went as regards good points. The bedroom was a reasonable size, but appeared cramped, with all of the furniture being crammed into (about) half of the room, with a lot of the floor-space being therefore fairly useless. The furniture itself was worn, but not in an artistic way, and the wardrobe held just four wire coat-hangers (I didn’t know that wire ones were still used). The temperature control on the shower did not work properly resulting in occasional bursts of too hot or too cold water, and one of the wash-basin taps was so stiff that my wife had to use a towel as a grip to wrench it open. Breakfast was pretty miserable. What the cooked breakfast was like I don’t know, but the “continental buffet” lacked pastries, cheese or cold meats, and (despite their being listed on the menu) there was no fresh fruit or croissants. When I asked for a croissant, I received a shrug and the information that it would take 15 minutes or so. Having said all of that, the worst aspect was perhaps the cost: for £179 per night I would have expected a luxury hotel. This was anything but.…
We came for lunch and my friend had the crab salad and tempura prawns. The portions were huge - too big really as the sandwich was unbeatable the way it was! The tempura prawns were lovely. My friend said the crab was lovely. But it was a long queue and wat. The chips were ok but a bit underdone. For the portion size the price was ok. That evening we came back for dinner. I had booked a table but they couldn’t find the booking. The food was good and the service friendly.
This is the perfect example of don’t give a s**t as your all visitors and probably never come back so we can get away with it. 40 minute wait for 3 sandwiches, 1 whitebait and 2 chips and this was before it got busy! Stale dry unbuttered bread Soggy undercooked chips Burnt pan fried minute steak Gloopy wet feta And crab with half the shell mixed in. Possibly the worst lunch I’ve ever paid for. The dog ate most off it!
We had lunch here. Both of us had haddock and chips. It was very nice and not overly expensive. The batter was light. The fish was cooked just right, not overcooked. The chips had a bit of potato skin on and were slightly crispy. Again, not overcooked. My husband was impressed with the beer too. We only used the bar. We didn't stay here.
Lovely relaxed place with fantastic views over to the cattle in the distance. Had a meal here on Friday night 15th. Food was delicious. Service was great. The young lady behind the bar looked after us very well. Thank you 😊
We arrived at around 13:30 and the bar/Resturant was quite busy. We found a table as another group were leaving so we’re seated at a table covered with the previous customers crockery & glasses at 13:45 We picked food from the menu and joined the queue to order. This took until 14:05 to reach the front of the queue and pay (there was only one person in the bar) and advised it would be a 30min wait on our 2 x BLT sandwiches and chips. We I got back to the table and the staff had partially cleared the previous customers crockery. We waited 50 mins from ordering for our food to arrive, well our sandwiches arrived. We were then advised that the chef was out of chips and would fries be ok. By this point we didn’t care, we were starving! The waitress walked away LEAVING the previous customers dirty crockery still on the table, and returned with 2 dishes of fries, and again was off without cleaning the table of the previous customers crockery. (They we’re still there when we left almost 2 hours after arriving) Now the food… Sandwiches were ok, salad that came with it, so much oil it looked like an oil tanker had hit the plate. Fries, tasteless and cold (shocking considering the 50 minute wait for them) Drinks… I asked if they did any alcohol free beer/cider and sadly not. It’s 2022, there’s a massive range of alcohol free beers and ciders perfectly suitable for those that can’t or don’t want to drink, so why not stock a few? So 2 glasses of Pepsi max it was. All in all a hotel that looks to have great potential, but let down by very poor service! I will say that the staff were very polite whilst being utterly incompetent.…
After a few days of peace, tranquility and at times solitude, on Holy island/Lindisfarne - off the east coast of England - we were really reluctant to leave and go back to the chaos of day to day city living. This hotel was the perfect base for our trip, the staff were friendly, helpful and made our few days stay here very enjoyable. In particular the housekeeper/photographer was very nice (I’m sorry we didn’t find out your name). The food was excellent! We tried the breakfast, lunch and evening meal menus and they were well worthy of 5 stars. The view of the castle from our room and view of the priory from the breakfast room was absolutely stunning, what a hidden gem of a hotel! We will come back and have recommended to all our friends. Thank you very much!
This hotel is good and has a nice service. However the prices are evidently overprized. This is probably due to its location. The hotel has no special features which makes sense for the prize. The views are nice on the old ruins of the old monastary. No special features as said and therefore a somewhat lower valuation. I expected more in accordance to its price.
A pleasant hotel lounge. Cozy seating. Friendly and welcoming staff, offers meals. Lunch time light menu. Full bar and hot and cold drinks. Has a lovely outside seating area. Dogs are welcome . Toilets clean
My partner and I have just returned from a wonderful stay at this lovely hotel on Holy Island. The staff were great and gave us a great friendly welcome. The rooms were very comfortable. Food excellent from an imaginative chef. Wonderful evening menu. Would recommend and we will return. The island was quiet at this time of year which suited us. Good walking on island.
