    Great Service, Great Food, Great Location

    Decided to stay here as a final stop-over on our way back from our holiday in Scotland. We booked here specifically because of the location as we wanted to visit Embleton Bay and Dunstanburgh Castle. I'd read a few negative reviews of the place and tbh I now wonder if they were talking of somewhere different as everything was first class. We arrived for a late lunch and also had dinner in the restaurant that evening. The food and service were excellent and the room was well equipped and comfortable. It was a similar story at breakfast where the food was freshly prepared and nicely presented. The beach is a pleasant 20 minute walk away and takes in Dunstanburgh Castle which is in a spectacular location and well worth visiting. Highly recommended.

    4/5 Good

    description on internet deceptive - not close to beach / not set in gardens (garden across road!) / remote location / more of a pub with rooms than a hotel
