“What a lovely place to stay - Amazing Breakfast, Friendly Owners”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

My friends and I were made very welcome when we arrived after riding 60 miles of the Coast and Castle route. Our bikes were able to be stored and safely locked away for the night - the room was stocked to hotel standard with everything you could possible need including cotton buds and flannels! The room was very comfortable and we all slept really well. We came down next day to the most amazing breakfast with so much choice and options we were very spoilt! Set us up really well for the day! They even had a bike pump the could lend us! We will retun!!!

We're glad we were able to make your stay a pleasant one. We are members of the Visit England cyclists welcome scheme and I am a keen cyclist myself so there is always a good supply of tools/lubricants/puncture repair/pumps on hand for our guests as well, of course, secure storage. We are near to a cycle shop who are always willing to help any cyclist with more challenging technical problems. Thanks again for taking the time to leave such a good review.

We stayed in the family room (Room3) and it was delightful. Great beds, great food, super great hosts. Their information folder was detailed and helpful. We spent a day on Holy Island and Lynn arranged a cab which was right on time. A really delightful stay. The hosts provided everything we needed and were a joy to talk to. We would come back to Berwick just to see them again. Truly a great experience I can highly recommend Alanna House--this is the best B&B we have ever visited. Walkers and bikers will find it a wonderful respite.

Room Tip: No elevator but not bad stairs. If stairs are a problem just ask for a room on the same level as Ro...

Thank you for the great review. We try to make our guests as comfortable and welcome as possible, we ask ourselves what would we want on holiday and then put it in to practice ourselves.
As for the rooms, all are on the first floor accessible by stairs only, we are a Georgian house so lifts are not an option but we will always help guests with luggage.
Thanks again.

Having walked St. Cuthbert's Way and some of the Northumberland Coastal Path we were thrilled when we arrived at Allanah House. The owners gave us a wonderful welcome, relieved us of our walking poles and muddy boots and showed us their delightful garden. Sadly, it was too late in the day for us to sit outside and enjoy it. Our room was outstanding, spotlessly clean, spacious and catered for every possible need. Breakfast was superb. There was so much to choose from and everything was beautifully cooked and presented. Our only disappointment was that our stay was so short. We are determined to make a return visit!

Thank you for your review, we're certainly pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We are members of the Enjoy England Walkers Welcome Scheme and do get many walkers staying with us, so over the years we've learnt what they require after a hard days walking around the glorious countryside and coast in this part of the country.
Thanks again and we hope to see you in the not too distant future.

My friends and were made very welcome on arriving at Alannah House after completing the Northumberland Coastal Path. We stayed one night in comfortable, beautifully decorated, well equipped rooms. We enjoyed our breakfast and would definitely return here should we be in Berwick again.

We stayed 2 nights. Our room (No 2) was large, beautifully decorated, and immaculate. The spacious en suite looked brand new as well. Our hosts were friendly and very helpful and made our first visit to Berwick a pleasurable one. Will go back!!

Thank you for the generous review. We're glad your visit to Berwick was a pleasurable one and that we were able to contribute to your good experience. The credit for the decoration must go to Lynn who has a natural eye for these things as well as the practical skills to make her visions a reality. We hope that you do come back in the not too distant future. Thanks Steve.

We recently spent 2 nights here after reading excellent reviews of Alannah House and we were not disappointed. We had a spacious, very clean, and well equipped room and there were plenty of choices for breakfast - the full english was really good. The hosts, Lynn and Steve, were very friendly and were glad to give us any information on exploring Berwick. The only downside during our stay was the lack of internet connection though this is a provider issue which they are looking to fix. All in all a very enjoyable stay, if we stay in Berwick again Alannah House would definitely be our first choice.

Thanks for the positive review although we're sorry about the wi-fi situation that you encountered during your stay. We are aware of the problem which, as you say, appears to be an issue with our provider. Hopefully the problem has been resolved but we are constantly monitoring it and any feedback from our guests will be taken on board and dealt with. Thanks again for the review.
