An old fashioned hotel in a sleepy market town. Lovely rural area convenient for Northumberland coast. Value for money and an excellent breakfast. The fittings may seem tired but the friendliness of the staff and the in room facilities cannot be faulted. Attached Italian restaurant was good value. We would use again if the occasion arose.
Friendliness of the staff
The bedroom was obviously newly decorated with a lovely colour scheme and very clean. The bed was very comfortable.The location of the hotel is ideal for either visiting local attractions or walking on the Cheviot Hills. The weather was warmer than the welcome we received! Despite the bedroom being newly decorated and well presented the bathroom however was a different matter. The shower didn't work, taps were so tarnished they appeared grey instead of brass. The finish around the bath was rough and the silicone sealant was black with mildew. Such a shame when the bedroom was so lovely.
The small bed in the room was terrible, my wife likes to sleep separately but it kept her awake most of the night, it was noisy and she could feel the springs, it even woke me when she turned over, very disappointing.
the food was very good very shabby and in need of decorating .Our room was ok but old furniture.No personal service so could,nt tell you who the owners were.
The room had a hair dryer, iron, table top ironing board, three different types of cofee and best of all a decent size cup to drink it from!! The bathroom had plenty of bath foam, shampoo and soap. The breakfast was excellent, everything you could want even Pro-biotic drinks. Very good value for money.
The hotel was clean and comfortable with a nice market town atmosphere. lack of a shower in bathroom was disappointing. The church clock chiming the hours all night kept me awake; should be switched off during night.The attached Milan restaurant was excellent for value and food quality -a real find!.
Nice comfortable room and beds. Good, substantial breakfast. Nice clean hotel, with character. After closing time, 11.00 pm, there was a lot of noise from young and I assume drunk, people outside in the street. This was the case on all three nights, which included Monday and Tuesday. Monday night it was centred on the Red Lion, over the road. Tuesday night was worse, with young women shouting from the middle of the road. The noise continued after 12.30 am. Can you do anything about this problem for future customers?
Location Bedroom decor very old fashioned. No shower facility, only low shower available for hair washing.
Staff and the food was very good, as was the location and the parking. Full of character. The shower room we had was far too small.
