The bed was so uncomfortable, noisy, hard and sticking out springs. No soundproofing but that would have been okay if we had been able to sleep.

Despite the hotel undergoing significant redecoration, the service and staff were excellent and the food, especially evening meals, was excellent.
Everything from the staff, to the room, to the lovely breakfast. One of the best hotels I have stayed in.
Nothing to dislike
I found that the staff were friendly, professional and helpful. Staff were wonderful. Absolutely no problems with the staff. I did order breakfast rather late...I work as a professional chef, sausages were good. My 'Waitress' from Rugby was great. She was attentive and listened to my verbal nonsense with polite aplomb. I had Sunday dinner..that was excellent. Service was professional. Attentive. Friendly. I will recommend The Plough.
I did order breakfast rather late, just before the 0930 cusp. Staff great. Sausages were great....l work as a professional chef, even so l found the poached eggs totally dry, no lovely yolks, black pudding was dry...(had it been on a hot plate for 30 minutes or so?). For £7.50 l would have expected better from a greasy spoon and a lot cheaper. Staff attention was wonderful. I would've torn a strip off a junior trainee for those "poached" eggs and black pudding.
Great Sunday lunch Good evening meals Excellent room - quiet despite being next to restaurant Nice bar & friendly staff
Not much - the breakfast wasn’t as good as the other food we had but that’s a minor point
With a stay at The Plough in Alnwick, you'll be within a 10-minute walk of Alnwick Castle and Alnwick Garden. Featured amenities include multilingual staff and luggage storage. Free self parking is available onsite.
