Reviewed 12 August 2014

I stayed for 4 nights, with my little Westie.
The hospitality is very good, with a warm welcome, friendly and helpful staff.
The food, even for a vegetarian, is excellent quality, beautifully presented.
I will return. A brilliant find.

Room Tip: Standard is good enough, but superior will give you a bit of luxury.

we stayed in room 3 it was quite, clean, and the bathroom was very nice. The bed was very comfortable. wee had a couple of meals in the evening and they where good. The breakfast was good quality and just the right size, could have had cereal or porridge if I wanted more.

Room Tip: Room 3 was quiet even with the window open.

This place is in a beautiful part of Englandshire and a place you will never forget. The new Manager is an absolute card and the staff are first to get you everything to make your stay special. Their food is top notch and a very cosy bar to enjoy a light refreshment and a blether with some of the locals.
Rooms are very comfortable and reasonably priced and they have a football sized beer garden across the road to enjoy a relaxing afternoon with friends.
Give this place a spot in your diary, call and ask for George or if he is busy one of the team will look after you........................

Stayed for several days with another couple. It was a good point for various excursions in beautiful Northumberland. Rooms, clearly recently redone, were quiet and comfortable. Food - dinner and breakfast - was fine although the selection for those who did not choose a cooked breakfast was very limited. WiFi in the Coffee Lounge was welcome. The staff was helpful and friendly, with very special thanks going to Lucy for her care and good cheer.

Once again, we had a marvellous stay at the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel. The name is a slight misnomer - it is not a castle - it is a traditional village Inn which was once part of the Dunstanburgh Castle estate. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful, the accommodation is comfortable and of high quality, and the food is excellent. The area is both beautiful and full of interesting places to visit, from Newcastle to the South up to Lindisfarne to the north, from the coastline, to Alnwick and other marvellous spots inland. Our last trip was helped by great weather which isn't always guaranteed of course. The hotel is very reasonably priced, but I wouldn't call it cheap - nor should it be for the quality on offer. As a family it is one of our favourite places.

My only fear is that DC will get so many good reviews on TrpAdvisor that it will be impossible to get a booking, but it hasn't happened yet, and it would be unfair not to give this hotel the recommendation it deserves on that account!

Room Tip: We have also stayed in the cottages in the past which are excellent and not an issue at all if you f...
