Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Perfectly located’ in the town centre, an independently run hotel in a Victorian building close to the sixth-century Abbey. Hadrian’s Wall hikers beat a path to its door to join locals in the ‘convivial’ bar and dining space. The open kitchen serves ‘excellent quality’ food, perhaps stone bass, crab and coriander crust, cauliflower, Bombay spices, Puy lentils, lime and bay dressing. ‘The choice was always interesting and varied.’ Comfortable bedrooms may vary in size, but they are well appointed; a room at the top has its own roof terrace and separate seating area. ‘Breakfast was splendid, too, using locally sourced produce.’ ‘All the staff were unfailingly welcoming, helpful and friendly.’ Parking is limited.
