This is the first time we have brought our dog on holiday and was impressed with our garden room which had French doors straight out onto a grassed fenced area. The room was very clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is stunning overlooking the small harbour and across to Holy Island, a great...

Lovely hotel in a good location - staff very friendly and can't do enough for you. Buffet Style breakfast with plenty of choice and enjoy pleasant views of the harbour whilst eating it. The hotel is situated near to the bus stop that connects with all the major towns nearby. The beach is a short walk and is beautiful. Will...

(cons) >> Promised room "unavailable" at the last minute; >>Very limited electrical outlets; >> Tight parking. We chose this quaint inn because of its association of the "Inn Collection Group."

Everytime we visit Bamburgh or Seahouses we never fail to go here. Lovely large pub, with a dog friendly area (which we like as we normally have the dog) inside and a large beer garden overlooking the harbour of seahouses. The food is lovely, good sized portions and at a very competetive price. Love just having a lunch outside in...

We stayed in room 20, which has a balcony with a great view of the sea and harbour. Two nights, and the breakfast with local bangers was great. Staff helpful and courteous. But just a few minor niggles. Would have been nice to have some more specials (more local fish, and not just cod or scampi). There was one (hopefully)...

The Sunday carverys here are the best!! We had something from the main menu a while back and it wasnt great so we only ever visit when the carvery is on. Everytime we are in the area we revolve our Sundays around a visit here.

Ideally situated overlooking the busy Seahouses harbour and across to the Farne Islands. The food is moderately priced and there is a good choice on the menu as well as the daily specials. The Sunday carvery is also good value. Breakfasts and lunch menu also provided

Visited twice during Easter break. Once just for drinks after a day on the beach, and another for dinner. In brief, great location, great family atmosphere, lovely staff, lovely food, and nice draft ales. And, if you can get a window seat - terrific views across Seahouses harbor. Or, if the weather is dry and mild - try the excellent...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
When it comes to top seaside locations, the award-winning Bamburgh Castle Inn in Northumberland is hard to beat. Named Tourism Pub of the Year 2015 in the North East England Tourism Awards, The Bamburgh Castle Inn overlooks the harbour in the fishing village of Seahouses. Newly refurbished, this friendly inn with 33 en-suite rooms has all the charm of the seaside with amazing sea view rooms. Enjoy a drink or eat al fresco in our elevated beer garden with its amazing views of the Northumberland coast towards the Farne Islands and the inn's namesake - Bamburgh Castle. If you're looking for accommodation for a stay away, a guest house or a bed and breakfast in Northumberland that offers excellent value for money, a more laid back approach than a hotel and more service than simply self-catering, look no further than The Bamburgh Castle Inn. With an established reputation for good, home-cooked pub food and serving up a proper pint of Northumberland's finest, The Bamburgh Castle Inn is popular with visitors and locals alike. Don't miss our legendary Sunday Carvery complete with towering Yorkshire Puddings - you won't be disappointed. ... more   less
