We have just returned home having been guests at a family wedding at Otterburn Castle. This venue is superb. The driveway approach, gardens and surrounding landscape are breath-taking (the odd rabbit hopping about was lovely to see). The staff are courteous, friendly and will held wherever they can to make your stay memorable. The rooms (we had access to a double room and a family suite) were newly decorated and furnished as suited the surroundings (a fair number of antiques I'm sure). They were large, clean and fresh, bedding & towels white, and bathrooms spotless. The wardrobes housed iron, board, spare pillows, duvets, and wooden coat hangers (always a sign of class, I think!). The family suite had a small vestibule with 2 large bedrooms and a bathroom leading off. The children's twin bedded room had large soft toys in residence, and games and books in the wardrobe, making the children feel at home (small details that made a big difference in getting them settled down for the night). The window was also well out of reach of small inquisitive hands!
My husband has coeliac disease and his dietary needs were considered without fuss or confusion.
We had a special bed & breakfast rate because we were part of the wedding party, however, having looked at the website, the full price tariff is as I would expect for this calibre of hotel and very good value for money. The wedding food was very good, and the breakfast was all you would expect of a full English.
Negative points: our loo seat was a bit wonky. That's it (and it's probably already fixed by now!)
