“Yet another great stay!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

The staff were very friendly and the room spacious and comfortable - plenty of room for us and our two labradors. Food and service excellent. The hotel is very convenient for the coast, but also the lovely inland areas of Northumberland.

My husband and I stayed at Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were welcomed by Lucy on Reception and shown to a clean comfortable room. Dinner that evening was very pleasant and the staff were friendly and efficient.
We would definitely return to this hotel and would thoroughly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Room 11 is above the kitchen - a bit warm in summer!

A very welcoming Hotel in a beautiful village, near to the coast. The room was clean and comfortable and the food, both breakfast and evening dinner, was excellent. The staff were friendly and efficient, we thoroughly recomend this hotel.

Room Tip: Standard room was most satisfactory.

All went very smoothly, nice place, friendly staff. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast I had there was great. It's very near a walk down to the beach, and there's a little shop just round the corner. Recommended!

We were booked into this hotel by our familiy so approached it "cold"! However, we got a pleasant double room amd the staff were most helpful and friendly. Breakfast was wonderful and prompt. We had one eveining meal which was of high quality. Better still the bar was serving "Rivet Catcher" real ale too.

The location is ideal for exploring this part of the coast and the local walking giude was valuable too.

This was a long promised chance to refresh memories of a visit to Alnwick a quarter century earlier and to extend our experience to more of the coast. Comfortable accommodation, dinner, bed & breakfast that defeated our ability to eat all provided, together with staff not only well trained but exceptionally warm & attentive helped make it a memorable stay. On returning home, we discovered that totally unknown to us our next-door neighbour had been returning twice a year to the hotel for the last decade.

Room Tip: Book a superior room if you can get one.
