Wonderful place! Wow what an absolute gem. Accommodation in the Police house cottage was absolutely first class, pristine and so comfortable. Evening dinner in the Hotel restaurant was first class, effortless , super friendly, and the food was simply out of this world. This is somewhere we will recommend to friends and family and we will most certainly be back in a heart beat. A huge thumbs up.

Hayloft Cottage
We stayed in the Hayloft Cottage, comfortable and fine for 2 people but not adequately equipped for self catering,needs a bit more thought especially now the hotel and cottages are separate businesses. Heating not good enough, underfloor, but how does that work with fully carpeted cottage, bathroom was the hottest place. Woodburner didn't really chuck out much heat. Our pre booked dinner at the hotel was not honoured and cost twice as much as we had been advised. However we did enjoy our stay, perfectly placed for exploring the area.

Wonderful stay
Our stay at Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel was relaxing, we booked one of the self-catering cottages and stayed in the Hayloft cottage, It was perfect for the 2 of us. The cottage was lovely and clean and covid safe, so close to a lovely beach. Highly recommend eating here, the food had was prefect and so glad that I added the evening meals onto our stay. There are not many places we go back to, but we plan on returning again this time with our dog Molly as the hotel was dog friendly and she would have loved it too.
