Ok for a short stay but the building is tired and needs some repair. Clean room and Staff very friendly. Unfortunately no wifi and poor mobile reception.

Pros: Room was comfortable.
Cons: If you are going to have paying guests turn the music off a bit earlier please!
Location: Wallington hall, Cragside etc.
Noise was a problem as the rooms are above a pub bar (not so much customers but more the music on loud until midnight on a Sunday night). Room was clean and nicely done, staff were friendly enough. Also cooked breakfast was over done (looked like it had been cooked and left in the oven to keep warm for too long!).

Too expensive for standard of room

Posted May 24, 2016 on Hotels
We arrived late so think we were given the last room! We booked a double and were given a single with beds that didn't even match! The shower was best bit of the room, except for the mould around the bath. There were cobwebs, chipped paint, oil leaking down the door from the door hinge, a tv that only had BBC channels initially then when we asked them to fix it, we had no tv channels, extractor fan that was left on all night outside our window and two breakfast bar chairs but no breakfast bar! Julie was very helpful but unable to resolve any of our problems. My advice on booking, ask for any room but no 1! Although, apart from the reviews, I've no reason to think the others were any better. The restaurant was lovely and the views from it were amazing, food was good but warm rather than hot and no peppermint tea! I'd definitely book a meal in the restaurant again and visit the bar but don't think I'd waste £97 on a room!

Beautiful countryside

Posted Oct 16, 2015
Pros: Guest House in excellent location, close to the lovely town of Morpeth and within easy distance of Newcastle. Outstanding countryside.
Cons: See above
Location: Ideal location for walking and exploring coastline.
Arrived mid afternoon and from a distance the guest house looked very impressive but closer examination showed it was in need of remedial work and attention. Inside the bar area and bedroom required the same. Clearly this has been a lovely place in the past and could easily recover its former glory.

Nice, welcoming pub

Posted Oct 13, 2015
The pub and food is lovely. Really busy which surprised me considering it seems like it's in the middle of nowhere! Downsides were that our room was directly above the bar so it was quite noisy - not a problem if you're not planning on sleeping till late anyway but we had to get an early night so wasn't great. The other more serious point is that I felt the window latch in our room wasn't secure enough. Our 3 year old managed to open it which give me the fright of my life. The window is at knee height so she could easily have lent out. Would suggest management look to fix this immediately. Aside from this, lovely room and nice staff.
