A real delight to stay here. We had walked 18 miles this day and the Keelman's was such a warm, welcoming sight on arrival. That continued throughout our stay. What was so nice was that the place looked exactly as it did on their website. The beer was very good, the food was good but all the staff we spoke...

we stopped on the last night of our Walk and it was a nice place to eat dinner, and the rooms were clean and quiet although the doors did make a noise, and the food was good the chicken ham and leek pie was very good.

The food in the restaurant was not made in the kitchen - it was bought in industrial stuff. The service was very slow. The rooms were clean but utterly soulless. This place could have been a real delight given it's location.

We chose this hotel as a convenient stop on the Hadrian Wall Walk. We had read the reviews and weren't expecting an awful lot. We didn't have the same issue with finding the lodge as others had reported as we had printing maps from the Wall to each evening's location as part of the walk. The lodge isn't signposted but...

These were my lodgings at the end of my first day on the Hadrian's Wall Walk. The trip thru Newcastle wasn't overly long (about 12-13 miles altogether) and Keelman's was an easy few hundred yards off of the trail. The desk in in the main inn/pub and the desk help was a bit abrupt, but the lodgings more than made...

This is a great place to stay, especially if you are completing part of Hadrian's Wall. The food is fab and the service is excellent. The manager was especially kind and helpful. The accommodation is good, everything you could want.

we had a very nice room with all the facilities we needed for a good nights sleep.. Full English breakfast was excellant. We had a drink or two in the bar before and after we went to our family party. Very good friendly staff.

Spent three very enjoyable nights at the Keelman's Lodge (Mon-Thurs). The Lodge was a 50 yard walk from the Keelman Pub (and micro brewery). Room was simple, but more than adequate and very clean. Only fault being it was too warm, and windows had to be opened overnight. We took breakfast & evening meals on all three nights/mornings, including extended...

Doing the Hadrians Wall walk and stayed here for one night en route to Walls End. Think twice before booking as you're going to be disappointed as it is not 4 star accommodation. The room was cramped and the bed was uncomfortable. Decor and bathroom very dated right down to a shower curtain! On arrival discovered there was no heating...

It was a bit difficult to find, I think that was due to the directions provided by our touring company . . a bit of signage on the path just past the rowing club would be EXCELLENT for walkers . . . but once there, we were treated graciously and the lodging was adequate. The restaurant was excellent and the...
