Everything from start to finish was amazing. From the staff, the room & the breakfast to the condition of the room, everything was 5*. A hidden gem in Alnwick!

Just what we wanted.
Great sport for an overnight stay on the way to Scotland, which was our reason, or as a base to explore the area. Very friendly staff, lovely room , comfortable bed, good food.
Elizabeth, gb1 night trip
Good 6.0
Interesting place with some problems.
The room was really good very nicely decorated and comfortable, but access to the rooms is via an outside open staircase - not ideal in November. This really needs addressing. Our room was over the main bar/restaurant area, so the speakers for the music are effectively attached to the ceiling immediately below the room floor. At the weekend the music is on until midnight - if you like it - fine. The staff were very helpful. The food was OK - basically lots of different burgers and some steaks . The location is excellent, parking may well be a problem but when we were there in November it was easy to park. Alnwick itself is a very interesting market town. There are two good Italian restaurants and of course the countryside nearby is stunning. WE had a nice break but I wouldn't rush back to this particular place.

Very good 8.0
Lovely place and great facilities. You are asked what you would like for breakfast the next day, there was no pen in the room. Information book was very informative. Bed was lovely and comfy and had plenty of pillows and spare ones. Over all 9/10 for the room. There was dust on the board rail going around the bathroom wall, everything else was very well presented! Well done team!

Quick stop
A last minute decision to stop here. A really lovely pub/hotel in an excellent location. The room was excellent although dont book here if you struggle with stairs. All the staff were really helpful and bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable.

Lovely stay at The Dirty Bottles Inn
Lovely stay at this hotel, it's set right on the heart of the town and theres parking very close by. A very boutique room and finished very nicely. The room also includes free garden passes to Alnwick Gardens which are superb. Really nice food as well, definitely a place to stay.
