“Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel - Little Gem”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Easter 2014. Stayed 1 night Dinner B&B in a very comfortable spacious family room in the main hotel. Warm welcome, friendly staff, great food, and a decent pint (Timothy Taylor Landlord & Tyneside Blonde). The hotel is very clean, well maintained, & decorated too a high standard (no chipped paintwork). Free Wi-Fi in the comfortable lounge and small pretty garden opposite the main entrance. If you have kids there is a great new play park round the corner (near village pubs). Ideal base to explore the local area including Dunstanburgh Castle, Craster, Embleton Beach, Low Newton By The Sea, & Beadnell Bay. Local beach in walking distance from the hotel or easy option if you have things to carry is park at Golf Club next to beach (£2 all day). Top tip, checkout the secluded cove called 'Football Hole' (sandwiched in between Embleton Bay & Beadnell Bay). All in all a thoroughly enjoyed stay, ticked all the boxes, we will return :)

Room Tip: We stayed in room 16 (spacious en-suite family room with double bed and pull-out sofa bed). Quiet lo...

We had a terrific stay. The hotel is in a great location and offers a friendly welcome, good food and beer and a good standard of accommodation. We were offered a perfect alternative to our original cottage booking when an unavoidable problem arose with the self catering property; very generously - considering we were entirely happy with the rearrangement - the hotel offered us complimentary wine with our supper as an extra gesture.

The whole family - including our new puppy - were made to feel very welcome.

The hotel is a short walk from the Embleton bay beach, with Low Newton a short walk in one direction, Dunstanburgh Castle in the other. Perfect walking country.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel. Thanks for a great stay.

We thoroughly our (second ) stay here. A very relaxing hotel where the owners and staff were very welcoming and friendly. Everyone spoke, including other guests and locals. The hotel was very clean, and the meals were excellent. We shall return next year.

We stayed here for 3 nights in April 2014 as part of a house-hunting expedition and found it to be an excellent, comfortable, friendly and utterly unpretentious little country hotel. We had not planned to eat in every night but after an excellent meal on the first night, we decided to eat in the Grill every night and we were not disappointed. The hotel was cosy - just as well given the strong winds outside, the staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful, and the house pinot grigio very drinkable after a day on the beach with the dog and travelling around. Breakfasts were very good: I enjoyed the porridge and honey every day while the other half indulged in Seahouses kippers, which appeared to hit the spot. We hope to visit again soon.

Room Tip: As we had our dog with us, the staff recommended Room 22 which has an upstairs bedroom and a downsta...

Warm and friendly welcome on arrival. Bedroom and all public areas very clean with good décor throughout and quality furnishings. Food was excellent, service first class. Good location for visiting other areas and walking. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and will visit again. Deserves more than 2 Star rating.

Again, had a wonderful time here. The staff were fantastic and attentive. Enjoyed breakfast and evening meals, which were superb. As it was sunny, spent a day down the nearby beach and enjoyed lazing about in the hotel garden. The atmosphere made it easy for us to relax, especially with a couple of drinks outside or in the lounge. For a place to stay in Northumberland, we don't think it can be beaten!
