Just back from an overnight stay and to say it has only been open a short while after the refurbishment, everything was great. The rooms are excellent and have been decorated to a high standard with great fittings and great finishing touches such as Bose Bluetooth speakers and Roberts radios. The food was superb, the only issue was the lack if vegetarian options, although when I gave feedback today was told this would be sorted. Will definitely return !

I booked a surprise night stay at The Lord Crewe to celebrate my husband's birthday last week. We first stayed at the hotel for our first wedding anniversary 24 years ago and loved everything about it. Over the years when our children were small The Lord Crewe Arms was a regular destination for a meal and drinks after walking in the area but as time went by it became rather tired and uninviting.

So when I heard the hotel had reopened after a major refurbishment I thought it was time to give the place another go and we weren't disappointed. The decor is stylish but warm and welcoming, the staff are friendly and keen to please, the evening meal and breakfast was delicious, the bed was very comfortable and we devoured the caramel homemade fudge left for us on the tea tray in short order.

There are still a couple of teething troubles (our room was too hot and the radiator couldn't be turned down or off) but what really matters is how the staff deal with issues when they are raised and it was clear that they wanted geniune feedback so they can put things right for the future. We will definitely be back and I can highly recommend giving the place a go whether you simply want to nice restaurant that offers great food using locally sourced ingredients, pub grub from the crypt bar after walking in the hills or the full monty staying overnight in a place steeped in atmosphere and in a lovely country setting.

Room Tip: The Tom Forrester room is directly above the kitchen which has a noisy extraction unit. If you are a light sleeper this is not a good room to be in, albeit extremely comfortable in every other way.

Please disregard any adverse comments made prior to April 2014 because I can assure you that they bear no relation to The Lord Crewe Arms since its refurbishment. It is quite simply a stunning place now. If you are looking for somewhere with amazing atmosphere and surroundings with comfy beds, beautiful contemporary furnishings and decoration (which complement the historic buildings) as well as nice food served in the lovely dining room (with great views over the garden and fells) then this is the place for you. I recommend the Bamburgh Room, where we stayed. It is in the main hotel building in the Abbot's Guest House - great to wake up with the same views as the dining room. All the staff were great and helped to make our stay very enjoyable and relaxing.

This hotel has always been a favourite of mine,regularly visited when i was a child,so much history and mystery attached to Blanchland and the Lord Crewe.
We were so warmly welcomed today,service was excellent and the lunch was delicious.
The makeover is extremely tasteful and in keeping with the history.We will be back

If you have only the slightest interest in history and are looking for a glorious setting then this is the place for you. The Lord Crewe is supremely comfortable, oozing style and atmosphere and serves food to die for... I could go on but that would spoil the surprise. So many little touches - what a lot of careful thought. Go and stay whilst it's still relatively undiscovered, having only been open a few weeks. My guess is that this is going to be top of everyone's 'must visit' list.

Room Tip: You're spoilt for choice - we looked round and all the rooms are lovely. Cosy rooms are the smallest but sufficiently spacious but for not much more you can get one with a sitting room.(there's no pool - why can't trip advisor let you delete!)
