From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Tom and Audrey were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. We could not believe all the 'extras' such as complimentary sherry and mead from Lindisfarne! There was also a guest fridge on the landing which contained complimentary bottled water and ice. Guests could also...

There are lots of good reasons to visit Alnwick and Greycroft is at the top of the list. The Castle, Gardens and Bookshop are wonderful too!

We travel all over the world and are quite fussy about the rooms we stay in. We can say unequivocally that Audrey and Tom and Greycroft provided us with a perfectly luxurious stay with no detail missed. We stayed in the Green Room, which was large and airy, with plenty of windows, a very comfortable bed, and a nice sofa...

I've read some of the previous reviews, and echo all the sentiments. We stayed for two nights and were looked after royally. Tom and Audrey have thought of everything their guests could possibly want, down to the Lindisfarne mead etc in the guests' sitting room, plus fruit, bottled water, fresh milk available to guests. Breakfasts are superb. Can you believe...

The Greycroft is a real gem tucked away in a quite location just opposite the police station. On street parking is no problem. It is very nicely furnished and has all the amenities you need. The owners (Tom and Audrey) are very nice people and go out of their way to welcome you and tell you about the local area....

This was an absolutely super guest house. The host and hostess were lovely. Breakfast delicious. Rooms gorgeous. The whole place exuded a welcoming warmth. We only stayed two nights and I would have loved to have been able to stay longer. I had the single room and it was utterly brilliant. If you need a bed in the area of...
