Can’t believe the awful reviews I read about the schooner Stayed there last night and had a great time Lovely staff Lovely room And also had a peak in the most haunted room Breakfast was delicious
The location is superb, and the building is a grand old lady. Alnmouth is an absolute gem. The 3 staff (when we saw them) were polite and helpful. The beds and bathroom were clean and new.
Gosh where to start. It feels like it has been woefully let go for 35 years and new owners are just grappling with a frankly monumental job of DIY. It's not really a hotel - there's no one around, the bar doesn't ever seem to open, breakfast was just tea and dried cereal, the phone doesn't divert to a mobile when you get locked out. The wiring didn't seem amazing, the central heating wasn't on in Jan (though a rudimentary room heater was in there) and the fire instructions were missing from the room. I don't want to put you off because it will probably be a really lovely place to stay one day but there's just too much work to do at the moment.
We have stayed before and love the location. Friendly staff The bar area had been done out well and the fire is a nice touch.
When we got to the hotel the first person we spoke to said that we hadn’t paid. When I found the email with confirmation of payment and my husband took it back around to reception, there was another person on the desk who said we had paid. We asked what time check-out was, we were told “about 12”. When asked what time breakfast was, he couldn’t remember if it was from 8am or 8:30am. We had to look around to find someone to give the key to on check-out. The bedside lamp in the room didn’t work.
Very warm welcome, staff were very welcoming and attentive they realy put themselves out to make sure our stay was a good one, we had our evening meal there three of us had a curry and one had the steak and we all enjoyed the food, would definitely go back again
Can't fault it, the staff went the extra mile to make us welcome
The location is fantastic if you like walks on the beach. There are places and pubs to walk to in either direction. The Indian food we had here was excellent. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We will stay here again.
Only minor - the bar could have been better stocked. The water could have run hot for longer in the room. I am sure that the continuing refurbishment will sort out these issues.
