The Castle Gate has a very central location in Alnwick and is only a short walk from the castle and opposite the theatre. Parking is at a premium - there are three narrow spaces outside the house, reached via a very steep kerb. Our twin room was quite large, though the shower room was small with a tiny wash basin,...

My wife and myself stayed here as it was close to Alnwick castle. The rooms are small and basic.en suites are very small,but due to the size of the property they have done well to add these. Cupboard space would be a bonus as there was none. Mattresses really need replacing as springs were pushing through. We had room 6...

We stayed for 4 nights - we had a room to the side of the house and were not disturbed by any Traffic. The house was modernly decorated and very clean. Excellent location for visiting Alnwick Castle and Gardens. Good base for visiting other areas - 30 minutes to Bamburgh Castle, 20 Minutes to Cragside House near Rothbury. Bonus point...

Nice double fronted Victorian house, situated on the main road into Alnwick, very noisy traffic late into night and early morning. Would benefit from double glazing to front of property, bedroom a good size but tired decoration, no storage drawers and only small wardrobe, so we were living out of a suitcase. Bathroom small and scruffy, no shaver point, no...

Very conveniently situated in the centre of the town and a short walk from the entrance to the castle. There was a slight mix-up with our booking on arrival. As friends travelling together, we'd booked a family room with the specification of single beds made at the time of booking but the guest house seemed to have different details and...

Friendly staff, good sized room and free parking outside. The breakfast was a good sized - perhaps a little greasy, but adequate. The bed was OK - it could have been more comfortable. The bathroom was small, but it worked fine and served the purpose.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding at Alnwick gardens so chose this B&B based on its location as it was 5mins walk to the venue. I received a text message on the day of our arrival asking what time we would be arriving so we were a little surprised when there...

Our friends arrived before us. ..so Tracy the owner decided to give our room keys to them rather than wait to check us in. .This wouldn't have been a problem but the room was not the one we booked on Booking.com. It was too late to do anything about it as Tracy had gone to a birthday party with her...

The b&b is in a great location. It has three parking spaces out the front with a public parking bay across the road (we had no trouble parking). The room was a good size and the en-suite was really nice. The shower was hot and had good pressure (not always a given). The breakfast was lovely. Cooked to order. Real...
