“Excellent”
Reviewed 25 May 2019 for a stay in April 2019

Four of us on a golfing holiday in the area. We have stayed here 5 times before, and very much hope to be back. Good access to a range of courses, but also to wonderful beaches, castles etc. Meals in the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel across the road excellent, with excellent service. Facilities in the cottage for self-catering comprehensive.

“Excellent cottage facilities in an ideal location.”
Reviewed 25 March 2019 for a stay in March 2019

We stayed for two nights in Cottage No.2 and we breakfasted, wined and dined in the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel. The accommodation was spacious, very comfortable and very well equipped with all self-catering essentials.
The Hotel proved to be very well managed, by human beings. Helpful and friendly service at all times.
We were delighted to see that sustainable fish and free-range produce were strongly featured throughout the menu.
Everything at practical pricing, with no booby traps.
And we very much enjoyed the showcase local coast walk from Embleton to Craster and back, past the famous castle ruins and the odd seal.
All in all, a perfect getaway weekend for us.

“Good for a family reunion”
Reviewed 21 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018
1
person found this review helpful

We chose this location for a family reunion, the accommodation was ideal with two en-suite bedrooms and a large lounge/kitchen. The kitchen was well equipped and included a washing machine and tumble dryer. The hotel just across the road had a well stocked bar and restaurant. It is an ideal location for children with good safe beaches and is close to Alnwick Castle and Gardens.
