Berwick & Northumberland Area Holiday Reviews

The Abbey, Hexham

Discover the north east coast with a stay in one of our Berwick and Northumberland hotels, and enjoy some of the most stunning scenery that the IL has to offer. With a long and turbulent past, tranquil countryside and miles of beaches, Northumberland is a truly rugged and wild landscape, perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The quaint market town of Berwick is encircled by Elizabethan Walls and the stunning River Tweed, making for an idyllic picnic stop and a browse around local shops. Plus, nearby Alnwick offers a magnificent castle and stunning Alnwick Gardens, and was in fact the filming location for 'Hogwarts' in the Harry Potter movies. Make sure you plan time for these great activities on your break, too:

  • Another fine example of medieval architecture is Bamburgh Castle. Home to the Royal Set of The Kings of Northumbria, the castle has kept watch over the coastline since 1894
  • No visit to Northumberland would be complete without stepping foot on the infamous Hadrian's Wall. Stretching from one side of coast to the other, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is still the most popular tourist attraction in the north
  • One unique activity to make time for on your break is to pay a visit to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Lying just a few miles of the coast, this incredible island is cut off twice daily by the tides, and is a popular place of pilgrimage due to its religious history
By booking a hotel in Berwick and Northumberland, you'll have a wonderful base from which to explore everything this incredible region has to offer. If you love the great outdoors, then a visit to the north east coast is a must. It's also great for family breaks, too.

Alnwick and The Cheviots

Stay Date: 26/05/09, a customer from Hitchin who stayed at 3* White Swan Hotel, Alnwick in Alnwick wrote this review.

We stayed at The White Swan last year so it can't be bad! This year we changed rooms as the first one, while large, had but one small window into a well. There was no fuss in this, only considerate See More  Read more information attention and the second room was large and airy although looking out on the main street which noisy at night. There is no lift. Breakfast was complete self service and therefore inclined to cool. Themain restaurant walls consist of panelling from the 1st class smoking lounge of the 'Britannic', sister ship to the 'Titanic', very grand but rather austere. Meals can also be taken in the 'bistro'which is a modern extension and OK. Alnwick is a small town, famed for its castle, still lived in by the Duke of Northumberland, also for the gardens with magnificent water features, planned by theDuchess. Both are excellently presented and visits are very much recommended, with or without the kids. Three other castles are close by, all worth a look. We completed the 'set' with Warkworth thisyear as we had seen Dunstanburgh and Bamburgh last year. Bamburgh must surely be THE most magnificent castle in the most magnificent coastal setting. Holy island is close by to but get the tide right !It also has a mighty castle and also the remains of St.Cuthberts 7c. church. West lie the Cheviot hills and for walkers there's little better this side of the Pennines.   Collapse  Hide

White Swan Alnwick - Weekend

Stay Date: 19/06/09, a customer who stayed at 3* White Swan Hotel, Alnwick in Alnwick wrote this review.

The hotel is in an excellent position, being only a few minutes walk from Alnwick Castle and Gardens, which was the main attraction that we wanted to visit. The only problem was that our hotel room, See More  Read more information although of an excellent standard with a really comfortable bed, was on the ground floor at the front of the hotel and some of the late night revellers were quite rowdy. But I couldnt fault thestaff, service or any aspect of the breakfast, which was plentiful and was also topped up constantly. We also went on the open top bus, which was quite cheap at £5 (free if your a concession) manned byvery friendly and informative staff. All in all we had a fabulous weekend, Alnwick is a lovely town, the castle is good and the gardens are breathtaking.   Collapse  Hide

A Perfect Overnight?

Stay Date: 12/07/10, a customer who stayed at 3* Marshall Meadows Country House Hotel in Berwick-upon-Tweed wrote this review.

We were very agreeably surprised by the quality of the hotel. The staff excelled in their friendliness and helpfulness. The food was excellent the cooked breakfast was quality and prompt rather than See More  Read more information quantity. On our return trip we were in a different room - 20 in the hotel this boasted a superior bathroom and only 4 channel tv compared to room 5 which had a set top box and a cube shower. Thesleep in 20 was of less quality due to proximity to the stairs and footfall was heard until 2300 plus. We would stay there again, we did not observe any facillities for disabled people and conclude thisis an older hotel though we would use it again just for the staff quality.   Collapse  Hide

Stay Date: 20/08/10, a customer who stayed at 3* White Swan Hotel, Alnwick in Alnwick wrote this review.

A super welcome break at the White Swan in Alnwick. The room was comfortable and in a quiet part of the hotel. The hotel has benefitted from a 'face lift' since our last stay and was clean and See More  Read more information inviting. Having decided to upgrade to full board we were not disappointed by the choice of food and the service in the famous dining room. There are numerous places to visit in the area or simply enjoythe amenities that Alnwick has to offer.   Collapse  Hide
