Beyond my expectations

Martin S, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
I've been looking to try Battlesteads for a couple of years and finally we visited last week. A two night stay, bed and breakfast with tasting menu on first night. In short it more than lived up to our expectations. The room was very comfortable, clean and well provided. Fruit selection of teas coffee. Food was beautifully prepared fresh and filling. Loved the tasting menu. A word of caution. If you're fussy or have particular needs you'd best check in advance as on the night the menu was fixed with no flexibility. No problem for us and we loved every mouthful. Staff were wonderful with lots of good banter. Exception being reception. Perfectly civil but a bit rushed on arrival and a bit cool on departure. We also picked this place because we like walking. Couldn't be better with lots of options from the doorstep. Breakfast was also wonderful. We will be back.

Lovely place

Victoria W,
Just returned from a lovely 3 nights break. Great location, lovely food (particularly the 8 course tasting menu), helpful staff and everything well presented. Having the Observatory adds an enjoyable new dimension and we really enjoyed looking for shooting stars. Highly recommend. Some nice walks near the hotel and also well placed for exploring the area. It's also dog friendly.

Very comfortable 2 night stay on TravelZoo deal

ApplePieBoy, Hartlepool, United Kingdom
We paid £169 for a 2 night stay in a standard room with an 8 course taster menu on the first night and a full breakfast on each morning. The taster menu was delicious and extremely well presented with some imaginitive ways to present the food. The only thing that let the meal down was the service. It took 50 minutes for our 1st course to arrive and quite large gaps in between the other courses so all in all in took over 3 hours to get through it. Such a shame. We just finished at 10pm. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice to help yourself from and many cooked items including smoked hake, kippers and omlets. Our room was compact but very comfortable especially the bed. Plenty of hanging space and a spotless bathroom with a good shower and nice fluffy towels. Good TV and the WiFi was strong and worked well. I think the drinks in the bar are a little pricey but it has a great atmosphere with some interesting bar nibbles available. The Romanian bar staff could do with lightening up and having a bit of a sense of humour! Good parking outside and at the rear, we never had an issues getting parked. All in all a very comfortable and enjoyable stay and we have both said we would like to return again in the future. There is some excellent walking to do in the area and lots of wildlife to see.

Secret Escapes Break

We normally stay at the big national hotels but found this one and were tempted by the 8 course taster menu, the fact that the hotel is in a lovely area and the great reviews. On the whole we were not disappointed, the taster meal was fabulous as were the breakfasts. If I have one small comment to make it is that on our first two mornings, our hot breakfasts were presented whilst we were still eating our fruit and cereals so we had to rush to get to our hot course before it went cold! Our room was smallish but nicely decorated and furnished, the bowl of fruit and home made biscuits a nice touch and very welcome. I have to agree with an earlier comment that when we checked out there was no conversation at all, no question if we'd enjoyed our stay, just a quick 'nothing to pay' and we went on our way!

A very special hotel with a lot to offer.

I can only reflect what has been said by other reviewers. We were celebrating a big Birthday and no trouble was spared to make our evening meals delicious. The amuse bouche were outstanding! The room was very well appointed, though quite small due to the architecture of the whole building. No problem for us as the bathroom was large and had a huge bath, into which I sank following a long cycle ride around Kielder!! We attended the Night Sky lecture, given by Chris, who was a real expert and very entertaining, despite a very detailed and factual content. (Wear your warmest clothes!). The staff were attentive and pleasant, and I would like to commend Denisa, who ran the restaurant on some occasions. She had a lovely manner and a very warm and welcoming approach. Nothing was too much trouble. Unfortunately I have to mention that the same could not be said of the female receptionist, whose manner came across as abrupt and we were made to feel we were a nuisance whenever we approached her with a query. This maybe unintentional but was noticeable, and a smile from her would have made all the difference. Be aware of checking your bill, as we found an error in the restaurant bill at the end of our stay. (I overheard another guest querying their restaurant bill on another day, which made me cautious). That being said, overall, this is one of the nicest places we have stayed for a long time and I would happily come back again. A jewel of quality and in a location which is perfect for visiting the Kielder area and also Hadrian's Wall.
