“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

This was our chosen venue for meeting up with friends. Our room (no 4) suited us perfectly with some unexpected touches of sherry and sweets - it was spotlessly clean and had everything that we had hoped for. Breakfasts were comprehensive, well laid out with fresh fruit etc, and the cooked elements presented in a manner akin to Masterchef. This could not be bettered in a five star hotel, and even the most demanding pallet must leave the table fully satisfied with the quality of food and the friendliness of service provided. We would be delighted to stay again and would highly recommend Aln House to anyone planning a stay in Alnwick.

Bill provided comprehensive eating out information by email prior to our arrival. Tea and cake served on arrival. Residents lounge and bedroom were exceptionally well appointed and comfortable. Breakfasts were to die for - from fresh fruit to full Northumbrian cooked breakfast. Excellent location only a short work from Alnwick town centre. All in all a delightful experience making our two nights in Alnwick memorable.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Aln House. Very comfortable spacious bedroom and bathroom ( room 3 ), spotlessly clean and lots of little extras including tea and cake on arrival, sherry in the room, sweets in room and bathrobes. Lovely breakfast including fresh strawberries every morning, breakfast kept us going until 3.00pm when only a cream scone was required.
Conveniently located, only 10 min walk into centre of Alnwick. All in all perfect stay including the weather.

Aln House is a 10 minute walk from the centre of Alnwick, a great location for visiting the castle and the various restaurants in the town centre. We were offered a friendly welcome and tea and cake on arrival. The bedroom was spotlessly clean and well appointed. There was an excellent choice at breakfast, fresh fruit, cereals, porridge and a "quality" cooked breakfast, the bacon being the best that we have had! Jean and Bill were friendly and very helpful with advice on the local area, they very kindly sent on the telephone charger that I left behind in the room free of charge. This a a great place for couples to stay, looking for a good quality bed and breakfast in Alnwick.

We just stayed at Aln House over this weekend, and it was excellent. Jean and Bill were so accommodating and helpful. As we were travelling up in the evening, prior to our arrival I spoke to Jean over the phone and she recommended a few places in Alnwick to eat, which we took up and were not disappointed at all. We stayed in room 3 which was beautifully decorated and furnished and we couldn't have asked for more from our stay, especially with all the extra treats in the room. The toiletries, fluffy towels and robes were all of a very good quality. We had a very comfortable night sleep. Breakfast was brilliant and had so much choice, from a full Northumbrian feast to fruit and porridge. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed it. We would definately recommend Aln House to anyone planning a visit to Northumberland and would stay again when we are next up in Alnwick. We will be recommending to our wedding guests when we plan to come up next year. Also in a great location just minutes away from Barter Books (so glad we had time to visit). Thanks again to Jean and Bill

We stayed at Aln House just before the Easter break.

Location wise it was excellent - a ten minute walk from the centre of Alnwick and also from Alnwick Castle. We visited the castle and the gardens which were great fun for families and couples alike. The castle is themed around Harry Potter and there are lots of activities for kids. It is also great for adults though because the staterooms and guided historical tours are excellent.
The Alnwick Gardens were great too, although quite expensive to get into. The cherry blossom was out when we were there. There are lots of interesting fountains to see there and most families seemed to take picnics with them.

The B&B was very well decorated - we stayed on the first floor in a newly refurbished room.
There was a bath which was great for me as I am pregnant and it helps me relax. My husband didn't like the shower though as he said it wasn't very powerful, but just an attachment above the bath. Other than that though we loved the room. Nice touches included sweets everyday and also having a DVD player and small library of films to choose from.
There was a good selection of beverages and biscuits daily. Also the bath robes and fluffy bath sheets were of a very good quality. The bed was very comfy too.
Despite being near a main busy road, we didn't get disturbed and we did sleep with the windows open too.

The breakfast is the best thing about this place - very high quality of food used and a good selection of berries and fruit for starters, followed by cooked breakfast with everything from traditional English to smoked salmon.

Jean the owner is also extremely friendly and always on hand to offer tips about where to eat out or what attractions to see.

We ate at the Art House in town, which was good, although massive portions. We also ate at the Tirreno bistro which was italian and really cheap but a good quality of pasta and pizza.

We had a lovely 3 night stay in Alnwick and will definitely return here.

We stayed at Aln House for two nights en route to Scotland to visit our daughter and her family It was our first visit to Northumberland. Bill and Jean were such friendly people. The room we booked (room 3) was beautifully decorated and really spacious. Jean gave us a run down on places to eat in the town as well as places of interest to visit. We have stayed in quite a few guest houses/hotels in England and Wales but this definitely comes top of our list. If we ever visit the area again we will definitely book well in advance to stay at Aln House. Our breakfast also was second to none. I can definitely say there were no negatives at all.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 3 which was large and beautifully decorated.
