More about Greycroft

Couldn't fault it!

by TripAdvisor Member Lennie70

The Leonards from Huddersfield... A flying visit to Alnwick for my wife's birthday was made extra special by staying at Greycroft. Tom and Audrey were fantastic hosts, and made my wife, kids and myself very welcome. The breakfast kept us going all day, and the room (the family room) is one of the best we've ever stayed in! Couple this with Sunday dinner in the Treehouse at Alnwick Gardens, and you've got a hard to beat weekend... Cheers!

Wonderful, relaxing stay.

by TripAdvisor Member JennaPSelby

Thanks so much for the wonderful evening we had staying with you a couple of weeks ago. Comfortable beds, delicious breakfast (I would recommend the Kippers!) and a great central location. Walked into the town in the evening and had a lovely meal at the local Indian retaurant. I would definately return.

absolutely fantastic

by TripAdvisor Member LeedsWanderers

We stayed in the Red Room for two nights and it was lovely. Spotlessly clean with a comfy bed and plenty of space and no noise from outside.

Breakfast was terrific and our hosts went out of their way to make sure that everything was perfect without at any stage being overbearing or too intrusive.

Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in the green room, which was well furnished, extremely clean and spacious. Tom and audrey were fantastic hosts, giving us plenty of advice on what to see and where to eat. Breakfast was sourced locally and was delicious. All in all, a fantastic stay - well worth it!

Probably one of Northumbria's best kept secrets

by TripAdvisor Member TokyogirlManchester

We enjoyed a fantastic weekend in Alnwick and surrounding areas over the Easter break which was made even more special by staying at Greycroft. Tom & Audrey are excellent hosts who warmly welcomed our family on arrival. Our room was perfect as it was both light and very spacious - perfect for a family of 4. Great attention to detail on all aspects of our stay with a gorgeous room, lovely en-suite bathroom (spotless and modern), nice selection of refreshments and a delicious breakfast including the famous Craster kippers - highly recommended. We will definitely return to Greycroft when visiting the NE again.

A perfect place to stay

by TripAdvisor Member 4traveltogether

We spent a few days exploring the area during the Easter holiday. Greycroft is a lovely base with an excellent family room. A great breakfast set us all up for the day. It is in a good central position in Alnwick within easy walking distance to both shops and restaurants. Tom and Audrey are perfect hosts, extremely welcoming and friendly. They are very knowledgeable about the area and are more than happy to suggest places to visit and where to eat in the town.

Stupendous ! A well-run & delightful B&B experience. Perfection

by TripAdvisor Member Carlita028

Greycroft is well located, within walking distance of the Alnwich Castle and the original city walls. We were greeted by Tom and Audrey, whom have the immediate knack of making you feel warmly welcome, whist entertaining you with some fantastic stories.

The rooms bright, cosy and clean. The food was fantastic, with a black pudding that could tempt any vegetarian, and ginger biscuits that reappeared as quickly as they originally disappeared.

Audrey and Tom take their business seriously, and it shows. From the little touches of quality, to the comprehensive outing and restaurant suggestions. After a B&B experience like this, I was left wondering why you would consider any alternative.

An excellent weekend at Greycroft

by TripAdvisor Member hoyley999

Recently returned from a lovely weekend staying at Greycroft. We stayed in the family room which was very well furnished, very clean and plenty of room with a modern bathroom. We were looked after very well by Tom & Audrey who made us feel very welcome and gave us plenty of ideas of where to go, what to see and where to eat. Breakfast was also excellent and kept us going nearly all day. Greycroft is also very central - just a short walk to the centre of Alnwick , the Castle and the gardens. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Excellent Guest House, it was all that it claimed to be, and more.

by TripAdvisor Member RicardoWestMidlands

From the time we arrived at Greycroft to our departure, everything was exactly as advertised. A warm, helpful & friendly greeting from Tom & Audrey Bowes, the rooms were beautifully decorated, extremely well maintained and immaculate. Breakfasts were cooked to requirements and were first class with great attention to detail. The location is ideal for sightseeing Northumberland and of course Greycroft being in the centre of Alnwick highly convenient for Alnwick town, Castle & Gardens.
Highly recommended in all respects.
