I likked the Lord Crewe Arms because we called in once for lunch and wanted to come back for an overnight stay. We were lucky that we had something on in the area and needed to be at Wolsingham by 9-30 and didn't fancy driving from Seahouses at that time of the morning. The stay was fabulous, the sun came out just as we were arriving at 5pm after a pretty miserable day, weather-wise. It was really nice having a drink in the garden and sunbathing at the start of the evening. That was followed by an excellent meal in the dinning room and a pleasant drink in front of an open fire downstairs afterwards. The hearty breakfast then set us up for the rest of the day. Hopefully we will be back again to have a longer stay. Yours John and Pam Daws.
This is a lovely village, and the hotel is converted from buildings that once were related to the abbey or its successor church, so full of character. The food was excellent and the whole stay was throughly enjoyable, and very good value.
The bed was comfy and linnen and towels were clean and soft.
Its going a bit downhill and badly needs and upgrade. There was a very large crack in the wall next to the bed. No attempt had been made to cover this up or repair it and the bathroom was very shabby especially the waterproofing around the bath. Everything was functional but only as far as it needed to be. We got the suite at a reduced price and basically we got what we paid for but if we had paid full price we would have been complaining bitterly. I had to send my main meal back and had to ask for an alternative and there was no attempt to apologise or make any sort of recompense. In fact it was charged in full on the final bill and we had to sort it out the following morning.
The village of Blanchland is beautiful
We found it difficult to get a taxi from the hotel. One room did not have a working lock, tempermental shower & let in light.
Location, new furniture, friendly staff
It is a very old building and needed better cleaning, both our room and common parts.
A lovely room with the best shower I have experienced in years!
The dinner menu was too fancy at times
The staff were so lovely and very helpful.My husband and I want to come back and stay in the bamburgh room.
This is a great place for a short break. The staff were very helpfull and provided first class service. The facilities were very impresive and it was ideal for getting to the places I needed to visit. I will go back another time and spend longer there.
Excellent value for money and very charming setting
Brilliant location,wonderful area, quality food
Not enough food at dinner, slow service
Location, surroundings and good service
quaint hotel with good rooms and character
Poor Service in restaurant, food prices very high,
The atmospheric setting, both inside and outside
The pricing of the food in the resteraunt was excessive relative to the quantity served on a plate (£17.95 for three, one and a half inch square pieces of trout and a "dollop" of creamed potato") and whwen pointed out to staff, the initial response was a patronising "well no one has ever complained about that before." I'm afraid such a response is tailor made to spoil visitors' weekends.
We were located in the annex called the Angel very old had character but little else.The breakfast on the first day good but the second morning we were greeted with the news that there was no Bacon can you believe it a bed and breakfast establishment without bacon at breakfast time.Poor show all round
We went to The Lord Crewe Arms because it was one of the "old pubs"on our dinner placemats and we decided that while in the U.K. we would stay at all 6 of them to make it more interesting for us. We did and found the experiance wonderful. We thought that The Lord Crew Arms had the friendliest clientele of all of them all..The Locals made our night there a memorable one. Thank you for your hospitality.Regards Geoff & Joy Betts
No complaints really, just that we though the bedroom we had could have been a little better decorated, but it was quite comfortable.
