“Short break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2012

Just spent 3 nights at the St Aidans B&B. I had looked at the web page and liked the idea of the Morocco theamed room so I was rather pleased when I rang and told that was the only room they had left.
We arrived and met by John who was really freindly and helpfull. Asked if we knew the area as we did he did mention some new restaurants that had opend in resent years.
The Morocco room was just great. One is the fantastic view from the window, straight over to the Fairn Island. Just beautiful. Then the bathroom. Corner bath with tealite holders. A two seater chair in the corner. King size bed, fluffy towels (changed each day) chocolates, bathrobes, hot drinks and biscuits.
Breakfast-choice of cereals, fresh fruit, juice and toast. Choice of cooked breakfast with two alternatives to the usuall. Sooooo filling. Lovely sitting room with fantastic views to Bambrough Castle (good walk across to there 3.5miles)Honestey bar that was well stocked.
Perfect place to have as a base to tour this beautiful part of uk.
Hope to return soon.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms have a sea view.

Highly recommended place to stay with fabulous views. Lovely extras such as a cafetière and nice coffee in the room, drinks available in the lounge bar, a variety of fruit for breakfast and exceptional smoked haddock which my husband loved.

Room Tip: Beautiful view from the Scottish room.

We stayed here for a couple of nights this last week with our little dog. We've never been to Northumberland before and fancied staying somewhere on the coast first before moving inland to Wark near Hexham. The owner made us very welcome and helped us on numerous occasions(like finding somewhere to eat that accepts dogs). Our room was clean and comfortable and looked straight across to the north sea - brilliant view. Breakfast was delicious. My husband loved his cooked breakfast and I particularly liked all the different fresh fruits put out in individual dishes. Usually fruit is all put together as fruit salad but it was really good to choose the fruits you most liked and they were so sweet and delicious. We really liked Seahouses itself - the area was full of beautiful walks. We were just disappointed that it was too windy for us to do a boat trip round the Farne islands. That means an excuse to go back and if we do it will be to St. Aidan!!

Room Tip: Each room has a theme like "A taste of Scotland". We chose "A taste of Africa" a...

What a treat I gave myself by staying at the St. Aidan. Friendly welcome, superb room, superb view from room, excellent breakfast. Altogether, very, very good. I repeated the treat a few days later, on my return journey, and enjoyed a mirror image of my first stay, most enjoyable and highly recommended.

St Aidan Hotel was a wonderful 'find'. We hadn't booked in anywhere in advance so were very lucky to find an available room. Seahouses was too busy so we were on our way to Bamburgh in search of a quiet, comfortable Bed abd Breakfast situated overlooking one of Northumberland's fantastic beaches. St Aidan more than fitted the bill.
Sue and John are professionals and fully understand the needs of their guests. Very clean. Amazingly comfortable bed and decor - even a little gold bag of chocolates sitting on the fluffy bath towels!
Breakfast was one of the best we've had anywhere in the world. Joe had a good, non-greasy full English breakfast. I had a choice of at least 12 fresh fruits, cereals and yoghurts.
Monty, our dog, was made very welcome and we had bracing walks on the North beach across the road from our room
Dinner is not provided but we had an excellent meal at The Links in Seahouses.

Room Tip: The Eastern Themed room is on the ground floor and has its own entrance from the car park.

We happened to spend a night in this hotel while wondering in the area and we were impressed: the room (1st floor) had a huge window with an excellent view on Bamburgh Castle, the Farne Islands and even Holy Island.
Good quality complementary breakfast with fruits, cereals, toast and a cooked dish of your own choice.

We stayed for three nights in August. It is in a fantastic location, and we had good views of the Farne Islands from our room. We received a warm welcome and appreciated the special touches in the room. Breakfast choices were superb. A good place for exploring the local area.
