Castle Gate Guest House, Alnwick
Fantastic location
Lovely place to stay in an excellent location, 5 minutes walk from the castle and the town. After a room swap we had a lovely spacious room and the en suite was very good too. Breakfast was delicious, all in all a great stay. Would recommend.

Would not go back.
Although the room was big, wasn't very clean (edges and corners full of dust and cobwebs), there was mold around most parts of the ceiling. We booked this B&B due to price and the offer of breakfast, which we missed everyday as they only serve it from 8am until 9am and were very inflexible thereafter. So we only got 1 B. I had to ask for toilet paper as we ran out on day two and the room was never cleaned and bins never emptied in the 3 days we stayed there. Tiny bathroom - picture attached - which used to be cupboard under the stairs. As we had a front room it was incredibly noisy with car and you could hear people's conversation. All in all expensive for what you get in return.

Parking limited and tight
No host to meet guests just key under mat. Told there was parking. Not so. Access tight. Staff friendly but formulaic. Sounds pass through wall readily.

Well worth considering
The welcome was warm and room better than expected, very nicely decorated. Beds OK but the pillows were a bit old and flat! The shower wasn't great, would switch to boiling hot or cold depending on what else was going on in the building. But great breakfasts, warm service and I'd definitely go back again. Good value in an excellent position for the Alnwick castle and gardens, Barter Books and the town centre.

Relaxed break
Had a lovely stay in Castle Gate Guest House. Tracy was a very bubbly landlady who would do anything to make your stay enjoyable. Breakfast was excellent. Overall a pleasant break.
