A really excellent hotel. Comfy, well decorated room with good facilities and extras. Great bar with a wide range of beers and a super restaurant. The food throughout our stay was top notch. We really enjoyed the Tasting Menu, as we did every other dish during our stay. Breakfasts couldn't be faulted either. We really appreciated the extra effort put in - the home made jams, cakes, preserves and the black pudding especially was delicious. The kitchen garden and use of own herbs and shoots was a real plus too. Also the whole concept of the hotel and the "green" credentials. All the staff were friendly, efficient and courteous. This was a really enjoyable stay and I recommend the hotel, and especially the restaurant, to everyone.

Exceeded all expectations

We came to Northumberland to celebrate my wife's"significant" birthday and this hotel appeared to fit the bill as we could take our dog with us.On arrival we received a welcome pack for the dog and various treats, blanket and letter from Winston the hotel labrador.The lodge room we booked was outstanding, very spacious,clean and comfortable with lots of goodies for us to enjoy.The restaurant food was outstanding, "proper" food that allowed the quality of ingredients to stand out.Breakfast was exceptional with home made cakes and preserves plus freshly made traditional fare. The hotel is very eco friendly and we were amazed when the owner Richard gave us a tour, highlighting all the features that allowed the hotel to win so many awards.We visited the on site Dark Sky observatory for a starter course in astronomy which was very interesting and infectious. We usually ask ourselves how we could improve a hotel that we have visited. Every day we found more features in and around the hotel that enhanced our stay.Richard can be very proud of his achievements. Will happily return as Northumberland is vast and beautiful.

Visited for overnight stay, a lovely comfy stylish hotel/bar/restaurant. We had the 8 course tasting menu which was sooo good, mushroom soup had so much depth of flavour and gorgeous lamb dish. Staff so helpful, efficient and charming, would love to visit again.

A few details away from being excellent

Battlesteads has many great features going for it. The standard of the deluxe rooms in particular is incredibly high. Spacious rooms with almost equal sized en suites decorated to a high standard with two skylights perfect for observing starry nights in a relatively isolated location. The quality of the hotel staff was mixed though, with some people wanting to help you with others being rude or short. We had to wait some time before they would check us in and at breakfast they got our order wrong twice. The food was generally good quality, we were a little bit disappointed having heard great things about the restaurant but the prices aren't excessive so it was pretty fair value for money. Overall I would definitely recommend a visit. They have beautiful rooms in a gorgeous setting (I would recommend a walk along the river bank) and with a few tweaks to their service would be an excellent venue.

Such friendly staff

We stayed last week on a 3 night break with 8 course taster menu on the first night. What a feast, didn't realise so much could be done with a simple beetroot and the Shepherd's pie was to die for! The breakfasts were great too with an array of homemade marmalades. The staff in the restaurant and bar can not be faulted, so effective and friendly, unlike the lady in the office, a smile wouldn't go amiss. We have a room downstairs at the front of the hotel, the room was clean but there was a strange odour, couldn't figure out whether it was from the carpet, which looked new, or the fact that it was one of the rooms that dogs are allowed. We thought we would hear traffic noise, we didn't, the the only noise came from above, people walking about, drawers being opened, even heard someone snoring and an alarm going off! That wouldn't stop us staying again we would just ask for a room upstairs. The fruit in the room was a lovely touch and the home made biscuits that unlike most hotel were replaced every day. We didn't get to see the gardens as there had been a Real Ale festival and it was covered with marquees.
