Katerina's Guest House
Ranked #8 of 12 Rothbury B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 August 2013

This was our third visit to Katerinas' Guest House in Rothbury and it did not disappoint. The breakfast fills you up for day and is just what you want when out walking or visiting the attractions in the area. The rooms are immaculate and everything is always exceptionally clean and tidy. It is a great base for visiting the north east. We went to Durham for the day which was only a little over an hours drive away; delightful. Cath & Ian make everyone extremely welcome. Thanks Cath & Ian for making our stay a great one. We will return to this excellent B &B again.

Hello there you two,
Thanks for this lovely review. It's really a shame that there is no forum where we can review our guests ....
.....about you two I'd have to say that you're pretty special people ....... you always bring such a lot of fun to breakfast .... that's what sets US up for the day!
Your visits are so enjoyable for us too that I'd have to say ...... "Hurry back for more as soon as possible!"

Take care both, you are precious, love Cath and Ian

Stayed here for one night while doing the Cragside Challenge. Room was lovely, breakfast excellent and Ian and Cath were so welcoming and friendly, would recommend to anyone. Location was quaint and pretty with a few pubs within walking distance. Would return.
Thanks for carrot cake Ian !

Hi there both,
Thanks for the review which we did not expect - it's nice to know we're getting it right.
It was a pleasure to meet you, though very brief .... hope you got on well with your "Challenge".
Hurry back!
Cheerio, Cath and Ian.

We've stayed in B&Bs for over 10 years, and this has to rate amongst the best we've stayed at. It is comfortable, quiet and clean, with superb breakfasts (fresh hot bread in the morning is worth the money alone) and scrummy the tea-time treats. The delightful wit and charm of Cath and Ian make it all that more special. Thanks for making our 5 night stay so warm and wonderful.

Hi there,
You know, people like yourselves make it easy to converse and banter .... you were also very interesting and amusing and we all had some good conversations. In short we probably enjoyed you as much as you enjoyed us!
Thanks very much of course for telling TripAdvisor about it - this was a really good review and summed us up in a very neat nutshell.
You came a long way to stay with us and we're glad it was all worth while. Hopefully, you'll get a chance to visit again some day - we'd look forward to that.
Glad you liked my bread too - I thought I had noticed a certain partiality to it at breakfast times!
Cheerio, Cath. ( and Ian of course).

Just got home from a 2 night stay at Katerina's. The room was clean & comfy,and the t time treats were well received with our brews. Both Cath & Ian were great hosts, and we had some great chats about various topics over our evening meal, which was delicious.Breakfast was also spot on, just what we needed to get up the nearby hills for a day of walking. All in this was a great mini break which we would recommend to anyone.

I stayed 2 nights with my partner and loved the quaintness of the place......4 poster bed and all!
Cath and Ian are wonderful hosts, very natural and friendly. Delicious breakfasts and a treat or two to be found in the fridge bar! Highly recommended..........we would definitely stay here again.

Hi there,
Thanks very much for this very good review! We hadn't even discussed Trip Advisor so it was a nice surprise!
Guests can also help create an easy-going atmosphere and it was clear we'd get on with you two from the start so thanks to you too! It was enjoyable having you here.

We stayed at this guest house at short notice and found our hosts extremely friendly and helpful. The bedroom was beautiful with a great choice of teas and fabulous daily treats left for us in our room! The breakfast menu was very varied and we didnt have to order the night before which we find most annoying in other places we have stayed. The fresh home baked bread was amazing and great smell to wake up to every morning. Thanks for a great stay!

Hello there!
Thanks so much for this very nice review. Glad we could squeeze you in to Katerina's despite the fact that we were going away ourselves on the day you left (still away now as it happens and having wonderful weather, lots of rest and relaxation and a good time at our own apartment in Spain!)
It was very nice to meet you both - we enjoyed some good conversation with you. Perhaps we'll meet again in the future, you'd be most welcome. Hopefully, I won't have a horrible cold and will feel as if I'm functioning properly next time .......
Cheerio, Cath

The welcome was warm, the food hearty, and the company charming. I can particularly recommend the Scotch porridge from the breakfast menu! The house itself, as has been commented before, is immaculate and full of character. The bedrooms are well-appointed (the mini-fridge was a particularly good touch), and the breakfast room is cosy and pleasantly furnished.

For exploring Rothbury and the surrounding area, Katerina's Guest House could not be better placed. When we arrived in the evening, we had no difficulty parking the car on the road outside the property, and there were plenty of amenities in walking distance. Trust Cath and Ian's recommendations for eateries nearby -- you won't be disappointed!

Thank you for a lovely stay. I hope we'll return soon!
