Stayed here for two nights. We had the bay room which was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. No noise from the small car park or other residents. The staff were really friendly and helpful. All the amenities you would want in your room. Good breakfast with a choice of full English, kippers, eggs and salmon and the usual cereal, fruit etc.
The beach is approx. 15 minutes walk away with walks to Amble (approx. 2 miles away and Alnmouth 4 miles away).
The Hermitage is interesting to visit and is about a 15 minute walk down the river and then you have to catch a small boat across to it charged at £3.50
There is a river bank 2 minutes from the hotel with grassed area if your dog needs to go last thing at night or first thing in the morning and there are plenty of bins about so you can clear up after (a useful tip if you are a dog owner!).
There are a couple of pubs in the town and it really is worth sampling the food on offer there as the only let down at this hotel was the variety of food on the menu.
It's a shame that a good number of shops and pubs appear to have fallen victim to the recession and there is little else in the town apart from a convenience store and a gift shop.
Really great place for a bed and breakfast stay and couldn't fault it.
