Lost for something new to say. Everything has already been said from the lovely breakfasts, the delightful garden views at breakfast,the little extras offered on the guest tray in the lounge(mead) but most of all Audrey and Tom who make everyone feel at home in their home .Thank you both for such a lovely stay

Thank you once again to Audrey and Tom for another lovely stay ( our 5th). It's always nice to return and its still one of the best b and b's we have ever stayed in. Breakfast really is 5 star and so are rooms. We have stayed in both the red and green rooms both of which over look the lovely garden full of bird life. It is a home away from home. We will be back.

Room Tip: Park your car and you can walk to many restaurants and many of things you can do in Alnwick.

Thank you Audrey & Tom for a fab weekend at your lovely home from home b n b. We stayed in the yellow room, a lovely suite of a room overlooking the pretty walled garden. Breakfast in the conservatory with the birds feeding outside the window was lovely and location to the town is 2 mins.
Your attention to detail and personal touches go above and beyond! Two nights wasn't enough. Hope to be back soon! Thanks again!

We stayed in Greycroft for a weekend break and would recommend it to anyone and everyone. Audrey and her son Tom are the most friendly and welcoming hosts I can ever remember coming across. On arrival we were taken to the guests lounge area and brought a pot of tea, homemade biscuits and chocolate to help ourselves to (& I did...).

Audrey and Tom chatted to us and offered an insight in to the local area providing guidance in the form of opening times and directions for the many local sites all backed up with leaflets and money saving vouchers.

Our room was large, spotless and very comfortable with better facilities (Tea/coffee, toiletries etc) than a lot of Hotels I have stayed in. And then there is the breakfast! we could see why they have also won awards in this particular area of expertise!, The range of choice starting with juices, fresh fruit and cereals followed by a selection of breads for toast completed with all the traditional cooked goodies make this a sumptuous feast a fantastic way to start the day.

There is also a shared fridge on the Guest floor landing in which bottles of water and fresh milk are provided to help yourself to and downstairs there is Lindisfarne Mead & Sherry should you need a little something to keep you going.

Greycroft is perfectly situated for the centre of Alnwick but on a quiet street with private parking (limited) and three is a lovely country cottage garden that I would have enjoyed more had I been able to sit outside if the weather had been better.

Not even Audrey’s framed picture of Alan Shearer could spoil our enjoyment (we’re Sunderland fans, aka ‘Mackems’). We’d definitely go back (and remove the picture whilst there!). If you’re thinking of staying in Alnwick make Greycroft your first choice.

Our second trip to Greycroft and it remains a great place to stay. Tom and Audrey provide a warm welcome, great breakfasts and a real home from home. Nothing is too much trouble. This time we brought friends with us who were just as impressed. Even the weather was kind again - despite the forecast. We'll be back again I'm sure.

Stayed at Greycroft for 2 nights May Bank holiday weekend-booked it after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor. It is an excellent B&B Audrey and Tom go out of their way to make your stay most enjoyable. Stayed in yellow room which was lovely and my son who was celebrating his 30th birthday stayed with his girlfriend in the red room also very nice. Rooms are really well equipped and have all the luxuries of home. Greycroft is in an excellent location and only a short walk to Alnwick Castle and Gardens. Certainly would recommend it and will stay again when we return to Alnwick.

Greycroft was undoubtedly the best B & B we have stayed in. Audrey and Tom we really very welcoming and friendly without being obtrusive or overbearing The house itself and the bedroom were exceptional in their décor and furnishings, very comfortable indeed. Breakfast was excellent (for which we believe Tom should be credited for!). The B & B's location could not be bettered, very handy for the Gardens and Castle - and Barter's books! And there is ample parking right outside the front door. All in all, perfect in every respect. We'll visiting again next time we venture northwards.
