This boutique hotel in Alnwick was chosen by our family to be our base leading for my daughters wedding at the Alnwick Garden Treehouse. |It’s a really tight arch from the road to the decent sized car park at the rear. ( 2x disabled spaces) so take care, closed wing mirrors is a must if you can. |There is no lift but it’s not the end of the world. |Spacious rooms (we had “Muckle & Marra”) with good bathrooms. Cleanliness was great and very comfortable. |The staff were exceptional, friendly and gave us the rare feeling these days that they actually cared if we were comfortable, happy with the service, meals etc. |Every request was met with a smile and enthusiasm even to the point of supplying me with the private mobile of a lady who was prepared to stay up late at home and return to the hotel after midnight to let us in rather than have us use the usual late entrance. |Smart comfortable bar for snacks or meals and a very nice first floor restaurant. |Many thanks to all, especially Claire and Kelly. ||I would highly recommend the Plough for accommodation, meals and snacks.

Just had a fantastic Sunday roast; chose the trio of meats which was delicious and had the right amount of proportions and range of vegetables. The dessert (Plum & Apple Crumble) was beyond expectations. More...

We recently held our wedding at the Plough and we wanted to leave a review to say thanks to Claire and her staff. We both loved ever second of the day, all thanks to the efforts of the Plough staff who made sure that proceedings went smoothly. From the beautifully set out ceremony room to the amazing transformation that occurred to then house our wedding breakfast, Claire and her staff ensured that every detail was perfect for our wedding day. The quality of the food was second to none and commented upon by all our guests, it truly was high quality and we look forward to visiting again to sample other menu items. More...

Without doubt the most friendliest staff you could ever meet! Room very clean. A couple of things could have done with a little TLC, but it was more that outweighed by such super welcoming staff! Will defo go again!

Didn’t book and was told at first there was no table available. Ordered a drink before we left to be told that the chef would serve an extra table where did we want to sit! !! |Upstairs was our reply |Not too busy so unsure why told no table |But that didn’t stop us enjoying the sea food plough mans amazing selection of fish. So much we should have shared one. I didn’t have room for desert |The gin selection was great along with the wine we chose to have with the meal More...

We stayed for two nights and found the staff, location, room and food faultless.||Great to have 'free' on site parking and anyone who can drive 'should easily' be able to drive through the archway! (Our car is wide and we sailed through)||We found the room as described, with a tea/coffee tray and a nice ensuite. We stayed in Podge.||Last night we had dinner in the restaurant and it was perfect.||Staff were all friendly and helpful. The staff offered to have our cases carried to the room.||Would definitely recommend to friends. Just a few minutes walk to the castle and gardens. More...

Excellent location in Alnwick to walk everywhere. We were upgraded on arrival which was nice.They do not pre-warn you about the very narrow arch entrance that you need to fold your wing mirrors in to get into the car park. A wide car would not get in. There is a back entrance that we were not told about until we arrived, but it is still a tight 90° turn, a few shunts required for long or wide cars. Food okay, breakfast not included. I asked for eggs benedict and was asked if that was with a fried egg, and it was swamped with hollandaise sauce, about a cupful.Next day l asked for scrambled egg and salmon. The egg had been microwaved as it was the shape of a big ramekin dish, and very dry. More...

This was our first trip to Alnwick and we were bowled over by the town and also the hotel. Everyone was so helpful and friendly, the food was excellent and our room was so cosy. We have no problem in recommending this hotel to anyone. Only one thing.....there is no lift, so if you have heavy luggage you might want assistance or pack a smaller case. More...

Llegamos a este bar gracias a la recomendación del Lonely Planet de Gran Bretaña.||Pedimos unas pint de cerveza mi marido y de sidra yo, ambas súper buenas y para acompañar una hamburguesa vegana acompañada de papas fritas y ensalada y una de las opciones de starters. |Estaba todo muy sabroso, el local muy agradable y muy cerca del Alnwick Garden y lo mejor abre los domingos hasta la tarde!!||Tenía mucha hambre así que no alcancé a fotografiar la comida ☹️| More...

We were just stopping for dinner on the way through trying to avoid a traffic queue. We tried to find somewhere open on bank holiday Monday evening that would allow us to take a dog. The hotel bar was accommodating, the food choices were plenty and the prices were fair. The food came in good time and polite service and was all very tasty, well cooked, hot. We are becoming accustomed to over paying for mediocre run of the mill food. However, this was a real surprise and good value for money. More...
