Great value stays available right now. Visited just before Christmas and last weekend. Very friendly and efficient staff, good sized rooms. First floor room this time had shower cubicle not over bath - very nice shower indeed. Menu looks ordinary at first glance but portions are big, presentation wonderful and cooking excellent.

What can I say! Me and a few friends decided to call in for a meal after a lovely spa day. This place really was the icing on the cake for the day! I didn't have a starter as I'm more of a dessert person so I thought I'd save myself, but the lads did and was a regret it... More

there is only one thing that stops me from giving this an "excellent" rating. The hotel is adjacent to the A1 Southbound carriageway and the noise levels in the room are disturbing. The room location is in some small part caused by our particular requests and the fact that we have a dog. There are rooms that face inward away... More

Place was quiet as expected yet service was dire, took over an hour to get food and when it arrived it was really bad. Both mine and my wife's meals were cold and either the waitress forgot to bring them out when... More

Visited with in-laws. They paid! Cold partially re-heated chips, lethargic service, greasy onion rings. I had steak(it was good), my wife had scampi which was poor, the kids were fed with yet more burnt, cold, scrappy chips! It's the burnt yet cold which is difficult to comprehend. Father in law had fish and chips with peas which were all cold... More

Popped in for lunch and few days ago, food was really good, particularly like the choice and variety of burger toppings and chips just like what my mam used to make!

We eat here on a reasonably regular basis because it has an unusually wide choice for vegetarians and vegans. Today we had a vegan hotpot of vegetables topped with vegan cheese and it was delicious. Prices are not the cheapest in town but food is tasty. Service was prompt and friendly despite the fact that the place was very busy.... More

Guests booked almost every room for two nights at my son's wedding, which was nearby at Alnwick Garden. Everyone enjoyed the stay. The staff are first class and did everything to make us all comfortable. The food is good, the sort of fare you expect at a hotel like this. Thank you to all at the hotel for making it... More
