We stayed here in June with our two children to have a base for Alnwick and nearby destinations in Northumberland. We chose the Hogs Head because it had family rooms and was well priced.
Booked over the phone as it wasn't clear on the website what the bed configurations were for the family rooms that were available. The staff were very helpful during this call and we booked a "Family 6" which had a king, 2 singles, and a sofa bed.
The room was clean and spacious with a nice, simple bathroom. There was a good amount of shelf and hanging space. The beds were very firm. And our room was well serviced during our stay.
The Inn is located near the A1, and our window overlooked this. There was some traffic noise but it was muted. A benefit of the location was that it was easier to get in and out of, compared with the town centre, and there was plenty of parking.
Breakfast was included in our rate and was a good buffet selection of boxed cereals, cold and well prepared hot foods. We also ate our evening meals here, and these were also nice.
We would recommend this inn to others.
