Beautiful location and the hotel itself is an interesting historic building, although in need of some maintenance in certain areas. Staff very helpful and pleasant although our stay coincided with a wedding and the bar staffing levels were hopelessly inadequate, to the point that they were unable to fulfil a booking for a meal. Ended up driving to Morpeth for fish and chips - the worst we've ever had! Avoid! Room itself was ok - hot water problems in bathroom, though. Open the cold tap and occasionally get very hot water - unexpected and potentially dangerous for children. Ceiling dotted with black mould and paint flaking off. Silicon seal around bath needs replacing. Mirror backing coming away. Having said this, I'll certainly be back. Charming location and interesting surrounding with lots to do.
Great place to relax and unwind, was here for a wedding, great service, I worked here 10 years ago as a chef and service is still as good, burnt gravy on the main course though!
