Family reunion

scottishlass026, dumfries
18 of us stayed at The Hog's Head this weekend for a special family birthday and we loved this hotel! The staff were incredibly friendly (shoutout to Gary and the other 2 guys who were working over the Saturday into Sunday!). The rooms were really spacious, modern and comfy with lovely bathrooms. The hotel has free wifi and the restaurant/bar area is lovely, it feels more like a ski chalet than a restaurant, really cosy and welcoming. The food was also lovely and the staff did a brilliant job catering for such a big party. The property itself looks quite new, really nicely decorated and so much better than your average 'inn' experience (holiday inn and so on). The breakfast the next morning was exceptional too, loads of choice. We didn't venture into Alnwick as we had other plans, but the Inn seemed really well located for access to the town, and there is a lot of free parking so you'll never struggle to get a space.

Popped in for lunch

We called here for lunch (Sat 4th March), family of 4. Absolutely loved it and will definitely be calling again. Lovely place, very clean, fabulous deco, good quality reasonable priced food. Also, good outdoor play area for children which is always a bonus. Friendly staff and great service - thank you!

The Hogs Head Inn replied: So pleased you enjoyed you stay with us! We do really appriciate the 5 star's, do come back and enjoy another lovely little holiday with us.

Comfortable rooms, great location, nice food, friendly staff.

Enjoyed a two night stay at the Hogs Head on a very reasonable winter offer rate for dbb. The room was modern, clean, and well appointed, with iron and board already included (saving having to track a member of staff down) the only minor mark against was the lack of a toilet brush. The on-site food was of a high standard, plenty of choice for each of the three courses, and the food arrived fairly quickly. My wifes pate arrived without the usual marmelade or red onion chutney, and my starter (black pudding fritters) could have been a larger portion, but the mains made up for it. We had the carvery the second night, which was brilliant, very good quality meat and plenty of it, followed by a huge sharing desert. The buffet breakfast could have had more choice, maybe poached eggs or scrambled rather than just fried, but can't fault the quality of the back bacon, or local sausages, cereals and yoghurts with chopped fruit and toast etc also available. The location was perfect for us, a cheap taxi ride into town for drinks, 2 minutes in the car when we were making the most of the local shops the following day. We love this part of the country, and the Hog's Head was a good base for us. I was working locally on the Monday and meeting a colleague, who was able to find us easily as the hotel is literally right off of the A1. There is a 24 hr garage next door with a SPAR for all the essentials, and a McDonalds, if you arrive out of hours for the kitchen. The staff were all friendly and welcoming without being overbearing or intrusive, adding to the laid back vibe around the place. In the past we had rented a cottage in Alnwick, but this would have been prohibitively expensive at high season, so when we next return to Alnwick, which we shall soon, I would have no qualms at all about re-visiting the Hogs Head, and on that basis, no qualms recommending it to any other travellers.

The Hogs Head Inn replied: Thank you for your kind words, so pleased you enjoyed your time with us! We do hope to see you again soon!

A nice place to stay

We have stayed at the Hog's Head a number of times and always found it to be a clean, friendly place. The food available from the bar has always been of good quality and decent portion size. The buffet breakfast was very enjoyable. The hotel is in an excellent position to allow you to explore the area, and has ample car parking.

The Hogs Head Inn replied: Thank you for leaving this review, we do hope you come back in the near future.

Brilliant place
