    We thought recent bad reviews of the Black Swan were unjust. We enjoyed our stay, the jacuzzi bath worked fin, breakfast was very good and so was the evening meal we had there.

    Fantastic location. Staff were all friendly and polite. Room was small but fully functional (maybe could do with a lick of paint and the window latch was broken) There are some tight stairs to get to the room which was absolutely fine for us, but if elderly or unable to use stairs, this wouldn't be the place for you. We had dinner there the night we stayed, food was really yummy, as was the breaky that was included the following morning. Overall for £50 a night what more could you ask for. And if we stayed in Alnwick again we wouldn't hesitate to stay there. :-)
