“Can't fault it”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

We stayed for 3 nights recently in the suite while exploring this area, room, food and service were perfect, we couldn't fault anything and wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend it. Every detail had been thought out and the owners couldn't do enough for us.

Room Tip: The suite is huge

Me and my partner spent 3 nights at this lovely inn. We stayed in The Suite which was simply wonderful. Every detail about it had been carefully thought out down to the real milk in the fridge!
We ate in the restaurant the three nights we were there and the the food was really good. Service was first class and very friendly. We would recommend staying and eating here without any hesitation.

Room Tip: The Suite is very large and comforatable

This Pub is just the place to stay in Nortumberland. The Room was very spacious, very clean ,the large bed was very comfortable & the bathroom similar.
We were very well looked after my the owners george & Mary whose attention to detail was most impressive. The Pub area iteslf is very comfortable and the food is good value. An excellent breakfast to send us on our way, would recommend.

Just returned from our second weekend stay at the Tankerville Arms, Eglingham. George and Mary make one so welcome- suggestions re plans for the day ahead, weather forecast and shopping potential offered where appropriate. Rooms are extremely comfortable and of a good size with bathrobes, luxury toiletries, tea and coffee facilities including water, biscuits and sweets provided. Accommodation is cosy in the winter months and the staff are genuinely friendly and helpful- your quality of stay as a guest is paramount. Re dining there is a choice of good quality courses at competitive prices complimented with a choice of wine or local beers and one has the option of either dining In the restaurant or the bar with the joys of a log burning stove. I would particularly recommend the smoked and poached trout pâté followed by liver and onions served with champ. Breakfast sets one up for the day, a combination of healthy and indulgent - fruit and yoghurt followed by a traditional cooked breakfast or scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. There's a great variety of places to visit close by whether it be castles,beaches, galleries or walking. The area is steeped in history, both Northumbrian coastline and inland and hence even after two visits we feel that we have only scratched the surface of the area. Thank you George & Mary for providing a most welcome haven.

We arrived to lovely warm welcome from George and immediately felt at home. We decided to stay in the suite for two nights which is very large and incorporates a very comfortable bed along with all the creature comforts you could wish for, sky tv, fridge, stereo system, fire place etc. The room and adjoining en suite were both immaculately clean and lots of towels and quality toiletries were provided. We ate in the bar both evenings preferring to interact with the locals and other guests and had a fabulous time. The food is superb value for money and the chips simply to die for! We could thoroughly recommend the steak, fish cakes and steak and Guinness pie. There is also a host of beers to chose from and I totally enjoyed the 'Farne Island' tipple. The breakfast is again superb quality with an extensive menu and that feeling that it has been prepared with care. If anything the suite is directly above the bar and so some noise could filter through into the room but if like us you tend to stay up a little later then it is no issue. We will definitely be returning and will recommend to friends and family - excellent!

Room Tip: all rooms were immaculately presented the suite is that little bit more special we felt

We stayed in the suite which was beautiful with a wonderful, big, very comfortable bed. The quaint layout dictated by the beautiful old building housed a lovely en-suite shower-room with rain shower. Mary has truly thought if everything to ensure a 'home from home' experience with some lovely touches such as chocolates and nibbles to go with the fresh coffee you can make in the room. We enjoyed a lovely dinner and despite the bar being very busy, due to the layout of the restaurant, we were unaware of the nos using the bar area. Staff were very attentive and quality of food was great. Breakfast was one of the best we've had at a hotel and freshly cooked to order.
Wonderful area with lots to do and both George and Mary are very knowledgeable about the local area and keen to ensure you enjoy your stay. We'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the suite - it's worth it!

This was a delight from the minute we arrived with a warm welcome from George,the owner, who made sure we were comfortably settled before leaving us to unwind on the first night. The room we had was extremely comfortable and very clean, decorated in a French country style. Although this room had a separate bathroom just across the corridor, this wasn't a problem at all and more than compensated for by the lovely toiletries and bath robes provided. The attention to detail in every way was fantastic and we would recommend this place to anyone looking for comfort, excellent food and superb service. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: The French room is at the back and very quiet with no traffic noise
