Amazing - 5 course taster menu

KymT22, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
The hotel has a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Staff are very friendly and can’t do enough for you. We chose the 5 course taster menu - Wow! The food was amazing, I have never tasted food like it. We opted for the wine paring option, we were not disappointed. Breakfast superb. The hotel is in a great location to explore the countryside. There are some lovely walks along the river and around the village. We can’t wait for our next visit to Battlesteads. Definitely one of our favourite hotels.

Brilliant birthday treat

MattW2K15, Carlisle, United Kingdom
Went here along with my girlfriend who treated me to a night away here. Everything was brilliant from the magnificent room to the gorgeous food and wine and beers, and service from everyone! Thanks again and we will definitely come back.

superb stargazing visit

Jill C,
After recieving a Christmas gift of "dinner and stargazing for two", My wife and I booked our stay at the Battlesteads hotel in February. We have a motorhome so incorporated a trip away staying 2 nights seemed ideal. We were pleasantly suprised to discover the hotel has electric "hook up" at the rear of the car park which is free providing you have a meal within the hotel, which we did on both nights. The staff were excellent, attentive and polite. Dinner on both nights was without fault, and cooked to perfection, this was accompanied by a selection of real ales, the bar also had a good selection of gin's and wines on offer. The "icing on the cake" was the bar area, which is dog friendly... The battlesteads observatory at the rear of the hotel is a must, (although on our visit the sky was overcast, no stars !) however, the 2 hour talk with great computer visuals, and tour of the large telescope was excellent, well done Chris! rivetting stuff..... we will return on a clear night for sure... The village has a shop pub and butchers (very good) with a cafe attached, all in all a 10/10 on this visit.

Excellent in every way

Spacious warm room with large en-suite. Towling robes provided along with all the usual amenities one would expect in a good hotel. Food was excellent and there was a good choice of beers at the bar. Parking was easy and the staff were very pleasant.

February Weekend visit

Colin G, Hazel Grove, United Kingdom
We stayed for a three night weekend visit to Northumberland. Battlesteads is well placed to visit the various sites of Hadrian's Wall, Kielder Water & Forest and Hexham. When we checked in we were offered a table for dinner at 2000, nothing earlier available. Thankfully we were able to get seated around 1900. We were on DB&B so ate from A la carte menu each night. The food was generally excellent but rather disappointingly there was no variation to the menu during our stay. Good selection of beers & wine by the glass available from the bar. Service was good, sometimes rather quick between courses especially at breakfast. Our room was a good size and nicely decorated, bathroom OK but had a slightly unpleasant smell. The eco friendly hand wash and shower gel were disappointing and did not produce any lather!
