Another excellent stay

Joan B, Richmond, United Kingdom
We visited Battlesteads last weekend and once again were impressed by the quality and attention to detail. We arrived a little early for checking in so enjoyed a tasty lunch in the bar whilst waiting for our room. The room was very clean and comfortable with a separate seating area. A really nice touch was a range of fresh fruit, tea and coffee and delicious home made biscuits. For dinner in the evening we chose to have the taster menu, absolutely wonderful. With the wines matched to the food the evening was excellent. We could not fault any aspect of our stay. Excellent,friendly staff, comfortable accommodation and great food. We will return

Súper few days in Northumberland

The lovely people who make up the team at Battlesteads made this our stand out hotel stay for quite some time. But it's not just them. Comfortable, thoughtfully presented rooms, welcoming bar with a good selection of beers, wines and gins and an excellent restaurant with a varied menu of dishes made from locally produced ingredients. The hotel, in Wark, is in a great spot for visiting the Eastern Roman sites linked to Hadrian's Wall, all just a short drive away for great days out. In the evening if you can tear yourself away from the Secret Kingdom dark ale and the Hexham Grand Cru gin then there's stargazing to be had at the Dark Observatory at the back of the hotel. Each morning, the local produce comes into it's own at breakfast, including marmalades; I recommend the wake up one if you're fond of your chillies. It's walking country so your dogs get as good a welcome as the humans in your group, and if anyone needs special dietary consideration or suffers from allergies they cater for that too. So yes, our favourite hotel stay for some time.

Great Food

Nice chalet style room , very warm although we where told it would be and to open window . Odd TV situation with a large out of order TV on the wall and a second smaller one sitting to the side no explanation we'd to work it out for ourselves . Fantastic large bathroom. Food was excellent , service a bit haphazard people who arrived after us served first it was the same at breakfast , the quality of the food forgave this. Staff mostly good a few surly ones but they corrected a wrong order with no problem.

Wonderful time

Caroline E, Sunderland, United Kingdom
Last minute visit, but so glad we went. Cosy, comfortable, clean room with fresh fruit and fresh coffee. Staff very friendly and could not do enough. Chef was very visible and keen to ask how you had found your meal, even knowing what we had ordered when given our room number. The owners were also visible and hands on. We spent a very pleasant hour in their company discussing the food and hotel. As for the food there is only one word to describe it - amazing!! Beautifully presented, tasted incredible, could not fault a thing. Planning our next visit already. Look out for Gilmore, the bar cat who is a character. No mobile phone signal at all, but if you want to get away from everything that too is perfect.

Wonderful stay

Diane S, Haslingden
Stayed here for two nights on a travel zoo deal. Absolutely wonderful stay. The deal was 2 nights bed and breakfast with 8 couse taster menu on the first night. The food was absolutely delicious far exceeded our expectations. It was my birthday whilst there and I was given a complementary glass of prosecco from the owner. The room was lovely and exceptionally clean, it had homemade biscuits and fresh fruit for us to enjoy. The staff and owners were really friendly and welcoming. We will defiantly be returning.
