Easter Sunday

We booked with some of my family for lunch and we were not disappointed. We had the three course lunch which was beautiful. I had a tasty soup followed with a lamb roast everyone else had the trio of meats followed with sticky toffee pudding Everyone agreed the meal was beautiful. The staff were very friendly and efficient.

Decent stay once we got a room with access to get in/out of the bed

NorthumberlandTopCat, Morpeth, United Kingdom
We arrived in plenty time to check in & so glad we did, all seemed smooth & the receptionist was very polite, asking our requirements for morning papers and so on, gave us the key to our room & advised us it was up the stairs on the left. There’s no lift in the building so we headed off up the stairs with our luggage, 4 steep flights later we found the room, very close to 3 other doors. The room allocated to us, 24A was very disappointing, whilst the bathroom was a good size with a look out towards the church, the bedroom itself was an irregular shape with the bed positioned between the eaves. There was barely room to walk past the foot of the bed & no headroom at all to get in the far side. The remote control didn’t work for the TV & the phone had been unplugged so had to scramble under the desk to restore in order to call down to reception, there was no reply so we trudged back down & waited our turn to speak. We expressed our disappointment & asked to change rooms, explained we’d made our booking 8 months prior & couldn’t believe we’d been allocated what felt like the worst room in the hotel, we were told it wasn’t the worst… really. The clue was the room number 24A, it must have been a store cupboard at some point & at it’s very best as a bedroom would have been more suited to a single. We couldn’t get an upgrade as the hotel was fully booked for the Easter break but did eventually get relocated to another room which had a much better layout. It was a nightmare to find first time, up some stairs, along a corridor, down some stairs, along another corridor & down some more stairs but once found it was fine. No outlook but quiet at the rear of the hotel. We did explain to the receptionist that 2 other family parties would be checking in & that it would be no good offering either of them 24A due to the lack of height around the bed. She assured us they would be allocated different rooms, later we discovered one of the group had been assigned the room next door (number 24) & went through the same shenanigans as we did. We did wonder if the reason we were allocated the duff rooms was due to buying a deal via and not directly with the hotel, guess it’s one for us to watch out for in future. All said once we were settled it was a decent stay, our bed was comfy, bathroom nice & big, breakfast was very good & staff courteous.

Beautiful location

We stayed 2 nights as part of a group of 5 for a family birthday. Room was clean and bed was comfy. Staff were all very friendly. Breakfast was very good. Evening meal excellent. Only problem was the shower going from burning to freezing.

Great, dog friendly hotel with excellent food

Rach1310, York
Booked this place primarily because we had our two dogs with us, but dogs or not, this is a great hotel. We upgraded to a castle view room, lovely (but 34 needs a shower upgrade, the only criticism). The breakfasts are delicious, staff friendly and bar lively. We ate two nights in the restaurant which was excellent both nights. Perfect spot to stay if you're in the area, and if you have dogs, you can't find a better place
