Wonderful building ideally situated for Alnwick, being just a two minute walk from the town centre, Castle and garden. Clean and comfortable with excellent facilities and welcoming hosts in Audrey and Tom. Our room was beautiful and had everything we could possibly want. And the breakfasts are really great. There is a living room for guests and a wealth of...

Greycroft is what a B&B should be, but often is not. Friendly proprietors, a very clean and carefully decorated room, comfortable bed, fantastic breakfast - what more can I say. We had a short visit to Alnwick, one night, to meet some friends, but we plan to return to explore the area - and we'll stay at Greycroft.

Must agree with all the positive reviews - a great place to stay. We were in Room 2, the Red room - nice walk in shower and a view over the garden. Tom and Audrey are superb hosts and their home is a very comfortable place to stay. Make sure you find time to visit Barters Books to browse and...

Faultless attention to detail and superb care. Alongside a great welcome , that rare ability of knowing when to step back a little to let you enjoy the facilities and experience. If you are thinking of running a top class B&b, come to Greycroft and learn from the masters!!!

If you are staying in Alnwick, definitely stay at Greycroft. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The location is excellent. The price is reasonable. The breakfasts are excellent. And the hosts couldn't be any more welcoming. Greycroft is a true gem in Northumberland and Alnwick was a perfect home base for exploring northeast England.

Other B&Bs should strive to achieve the quality of Greycroft! The house is beautiful with a breakfast room overlooking the fabulous garden. The twin room is very comfortable, immaculate bathroom with wonderful power shower. Lots of attention to detail - complimentary bottles of water and night caps, fridge, sweets in the room, tonnes of leaflets with local info. Outstanding breakfast...

We'd previously stayed at Greycroft and weren't disappointed when we returned at the end of August. Tom and Audrey are the perfect hosts - extremely welcoming, very knowledgeable about the local area and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spotlessly clean, and everything has been thought of for guests' convenience with lots of extra special touches e.g. complementary...

Fantastic Bed and Breakfast. Audrey and Tom were the perfect hosts. So many special touches which I have never come across before. Wine glasses on the landing, should you travel with your 'bedroom bar' which I always do!!! Makes a nice change from having to drink wine from the water glasses left in the bathroom! A complimentary 'night cap' in...

All the good things that people have written about Greycroft are absolutely true (and there are only good things to say). Audrey and Tom are indeed wonderful hosts, very interesting people and great fun. They have thought of everything for the comfort, convenience and utter spoiling of their guests. Everything is top quality and the breakfasts are to die for...
