    I would highlight the lovely staff and great breakfast service.Unfortunately though we found the bed to be extremely uncomfortable and even though we reported our issue and duvets were put on the mattress under the bottom sheet, my back suffered and not much sleep was had.The shower also had areas of mildew and from time to time there was an unpleasant smell in there.The hotel also needs to look at the carpet from the ground floor up past the kitchen and restaurant - it is in need of a re fresh. Sadly we will not be returning.This hotel could be great - the food is very good but more attention to detail is needed.

    Exploring Northumberland

    This was our first trip to Alnwick and we were bowled over by the town and also the hotel. Everyone was so helpful and friendly, the food was excellent and our room was so cosy. We have no problem in recommending this hotel to anyone. Only one thing.....there is no lift, so if you have heavy luggage you might want assistance or pack a smaller case.

    Excellent location in Alnwick to walk everywhere. We were upgraded on arrival which was nice.They do not pre-warn you about the very narrow arch entrance that you need to fold your wing mirrors in to get into the car park. A wide car would not get in. There is a back entrance that we were not told about until we arrived, but it is still a tight 90° turn, a few shunts required for long or wide cars. Food okay, breakfast not included. I asked for eggs benedict and was asked if that was with a fried egg, and it was swamped with hollandaise sauce, about a cupful.Next day l asked for scrambled egg and salmon. The egg had been microwaved as it was the shape of a big ramekin dish, and very dry.
