Good quality stay, good location


Roger W, Limoges, France
We booked on the spur of the moment and arrived the same day for a 3 night stay. Room lovely and warm and cosy, meals in the bar were excellent and breakfasts even better. And the places to go and visit from this location make a long list that takes more than the 3 days we had available. And the local beach is pretty spectacular.

Overpriced for what it offers


Lincolnintheuk,
We stayed here for one night. The room was comfortable, reasonably well appointed with a well decorated bathroom. A couple of niggles. The radio didn't seem to work and the thermostatic control on the shower didn't allow the water to get any warmer than tepid. We had a couple of drinks in the bar and dinner in the restaurant. All OK until we finished the main course and then got left for a good while and then we're asked eventually whether we wanted to see the dessert menu which was included in our dinner supplement. No menu appeared for a very long time, and when we were eventually asked again by a different waitress if we wanted to see the dessert menu it was getting on so we decided to leave it. When we checked out in the morning we were not asked if we enjoyed our stay. Nothing too serious if it had been reasonably priced but we were expecting better for over £235 in the off-season in rural England for B&B (£144) dinner (£40) and extras for a bottle of wine, a couple of drinks in the bar and a couple of supplements for dinner. This hotel will need to try harder if it is to justify the high price.

Comfortable 3 day break.

Very clean, Good Food, Room facilities perfect, Very pleasant staff, Plenty parking. Ideal base for touring the area. One of the best things about the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel was the variety of choices on the menus.

Very poor customer service


Pioneer429866,
Unfortunately I cannot comment on the hotel directly as I never had the opportunity to stay there despite paying full price for 2 nights. Having booked a 2 night stay through a well-known ‘booking’ website I was made aware 2 days before the visit that the hotel was unable to meet the booking and would need to move me after the first night. I discussed this with my wife and due to a number of reasons, including us having our dog with us, we felt it wasn’t going to work. I contacted the hotel and cancelled the booking. On seeing the full 2 nights charged to my credit card I queried with the hotel how I could obtain a refund as the cancellation was due to the hotel not being able to meet the booking. My first query received no response. A follow up email was answered stating that due to the use of the ‘booking’ site, the deposit would not be reimbursed. I have responded explaining that a ‘deposit’ was not taken it was the full cost for a 2 night stay. Since then I have received no further communication. The hotel does look fantastic but unfortunately I have not and will not be staying there in future. The hotel could not honour a booking but I have been charged close to £150 with no communication, reimbursement or even the offer of a rearranged stay. Very poor.

Manager George is somewhat less than a gentleman


Jasper S,
The manager of this property, George, is incredibly offensive, and treats prospective customers with significant contempt. It's easy to see why the place has such great reviews when it looks the way it does, but if you go places for service or for staff, avoid, avoid, avoid. Best of luck with your booking.
