      Lovely Stay

      Lovely boutique hotel well situated for all Alnwick attractions. The hotel is very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent as was the dinner we had in the Balliffgate Bistro. Very Covid safe. Our room was small but perfectly fine for a short stay of two days. Minor niggles- no Earl Grey or milk on the hospitality tray. Parking on the street outside the hotel is difficult to find. Other than that would definitely recommend.

      Highly recommend a stay at this hotel

      A wonderful small hotel with lovely staff who were so pleasant all the time and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is so well positioned for all the local attractions. The bedroom was delightful with a lovely bathroom and a fan was provided if we needed it. Superb breakfast freshly cooked and a lovely garden area to sit and have a drink.

      Highly recommend this hotel

      Easy access to the town. We eat at the hotel and it was excellent, good choice. Room was good and decoration throughout lovely. They also have a garden at the back that gets the evening sun, so great for a drink before the meal.

      Bank holiday weekend

      The hotel was a special treat for my wife following lockdown and I thought I’d splash out on the Cookie Jar. We had previously stayed one night in Bamburgh before we came to Alnwick for 2 nights. All the staff there were fantastic & so helpful. The breakfast was fresh & lovely. The room itself was good but I don’t think it justified the £243 a night price. The bathroom had a walk in shower and was excellent. However I feel it was overpriced & I felt a little bit underwhelmed despite the location outside the castle. I’d go back but it was expensive for what it was to be fair.
