Not really sure how this fabulous hotel got its star rating?! This place is no less than four star!!! Fabulous food, marvellous surroundings, friendly staff. A great place to rest but perfectly placed for visiting other areas. Did not want to go home but I do hope to return very soon

We last visited this hotel several years ago and we won't be leaving it that long before we go back again! Reasonable room which was very clean. The restaurant and residents lounge have been refurbished and look great. The food in the restaurant was extremely good and all the staff were very helpful and professional. Thanks for a great stay.

Stayed two nights on half board rate. The food was as good as ever especially for my vegetarian wife. The refurbished restaurant, bar and lounge are really impressive. Very friendly staff add to a great stay

We stayed at one of our favourite get-away hotels again, when it had just opened for the season. It was quiet (which we liked) but the service was excellent. We were most impressed by the refurbishments made over the winter. to the lounge and dining room.

We were in need of a short break and this was a good place for it. The rooms were comfortable and the beds vast. Everything quietly decorated, with a good shower and bathroom. The room was quiet and the heating not too hot. In all a good place to sleep. Breakfasts were plentiful and well-cooked. Nothing was too much trouble....

Lovely hotel in a beautiful, quiet village. Excellent facilities and brilliant, helpful staff. There were no deficiencies in any department. The food was perfect. Try the kippers for breakfast!! Wonderful location for walks directly from the hotel or touring the beautiful coastline and countryside.

We enjoyed a lovely walk to Low Newton on Friday afternoon, enjoying a drink in the pub, with a longer walk to Dunstanburgh Castle and Craster on the Saturday. Both walks started from the hotel and both ended with a warm and welcoming room, a lovely evening meal...
