Ok let's get the bad out of the way to allow for the good. The room was pleasant, the mattress was worn and badly in need of changing. The bathroom was ok, with a recent issue with the guttering causing damp to show in the walls. This was mentioned initially with a sincere apology, but no comment was made to adjust the price of the room despite this.
The bedroom doors were not soft closing, meaning any inconsiderate guests (and there were a few) would alow the doors to simply bang shut, disturbing any sleep you may be having.
These issues aside, which are relatively easy fixes and were thankfully outweight by a great location. Having lived in Morpeth before, I knew the area with the B&B situated just out of the centre, but close enough for a nice gentle stroll down into the town, for a look around the shops.
In addition, the welcome from the owners was warm and very friendly, exactly what Morpeth is all about. Whilst I didn't require any local assistance, I'm quite sure plenty would have been on hand if required.
Breakfast in the morning was well cooked and plentiful, with any variations on the menu considered.
I'd certainly consider staying here on any trip back again.
