Very nice welcome

regissman, Saumur, France
These people who are working are really friendly. A pretty and comfortable place with truely helpful owners. The bedroom was tall and clean, everything was perfect. A very good breakfast. I could feel, as a customer, that they sincerely listen to me and to what I ned.

very disappointed with staff and hotel

frequenttraveller554, Belfast, United Kingdom
Unfortunately I never actually made it to the hotel as my brother sadly and unexpectedly passed away the day before I was due to stay. The staff showed me no grace and even though I explained my circumstances for cancelling they still charged me for my stay!! Really was gob-smacked to say the least! Under any other circumstance I would have been happy to pay as I had cancelled late and I fully understand the 3 day cancellation notice but totally shocked to be charged given what I was going through. I was told that as I had the room booked they had to turn other people away so i would have to pay... maybe next time I'll get more notice of a sudden death!!!!! I have no problem paying (and have) and the money isn't the issue, the person on the end of the phone was my problem. So much for customer care. I have been so annoyed it has taken me over two months since my brothers death to build the strength to write this.

The Grey Bull replied: I was very disappointed to read your comments, we pride ourselves on going that extra mile for guests and certainly would not have wanted to upset you, particularly with the recent loss of a close family member. As I understand it the booking was received from an agency which made the charge, we ourselves would not have charged you in the circumstances, we are therefore more than happy to offer you a free stay at a time of your choosing, so you can see for yourself the quality of the product that we offer and the concern of us as owners.

Ideal for our weekend

MWebby1962, London, United Kingdom
Very welcoming and hospitable owners who even offered to pick one of us up from the station if required. The twin rooms were ideal for us. Warm, clean & the breakfast was excellent. Only a 5 min walk from the town centre & a couple of miles from Vindolanda and Hadrian's Wall.

a nice B&B and great location

Bradley051, Vancouver, Canada
We stayed here as part of our honeymoon. We wanted a small quieter town in the countryside and we picked correctly in Haltwhistle. The B&B is just a block or two from the main area of town where there are lots of shops, pubs and restaurants to be had. The breakfast included was just great. a huge full cooked meal including Black pudding was offered as well as a walk up selection of juices and many cereals and lots of different kinds of fruits & yogurt so if a big fry up isn't your thing you would be very satisfied. There is also another eating room on main level if you wanted to eat take out with small fridge and yet another big comfortable sitting room on that level with a computer with internet and a big screen TV to watch with lots of videos too. Our only problem we had was our reservation that was for 4 nights was for some reason not there and because of it we were going to have to get another room on day 2 in another town as it was busy. As it happened there was a cancellation and we got to stay all 4 nights. Our room that we had was, I believe, not rooms we were hoping for and that's why I've rated them average. It was a nice, clean on-suite but a bit smaller than some of the other rooms we saw. The staff from the owners to the maid servers were so friendly and accommodating and I would recommend this place to any one. We might even be back. I hope so!

The B&B to stay at in Haltwhistle

John P, Leeds, United Kingdom
Stayed for just one night on cycling trip through north of England. Large top floor 3 bed room with huge en suite bathroom; comfortable beds, and very quiet as not much traffic through main street. Very friendly staff, and best breakfast we had in a week of travelling. Storage facilities for bikes if needed. Two minutes walk from restaurants.
