we stayed two nights, it was for a friends wedding, my daughter and myself had a twin room.
with a private bathroom. Read more
Very friendly staff but needs attention to detail and a major update. No full length mirror in the building. Old style tv that was difficult to see and hear. I expected better as we had a deluxe room. Breakfast was ok but could have been better. Read more
We booked an overnight stay prior to, and after, a coach trip departing from Morpeth Bus Station and Castle View was perfectly positioned for us. Nothing hugely fancy but comfortable and clean which is all we needed Read more
Wonderful. Read more
We were disappointed with our room. As we have been disappointed with other accommodation over the years we now ask for a twin room so we have more space, however this room was tiny and only just got the beds in. The rest of our stay was excellent but we couldn't have stayed more than 1 night in that room. Read more
One night stopover while on a short break. Read more
Room quite big. Was quite cold. Bedroom required some TLC. Vanity light didn't work. Wardrobe door broken. Read more
I needed a one-night base near to the bus station, so this was ideal. The accommodation was satisfactory - although the bathroom was not en-suite, I did have exclusive use of it (though I suspect the basin is leaking). It would have been good to have had instructions for the television: it took me 15 minutes to achieve a station! But breakfast was fresh and good. Read more
Gill was very welcoming, accommodating and kind throughout our short stay. The room was perfectly clean and breakfast was on time and very nice. Unfortunately, however, the plumbing is very loud (in our room, Alnwick, at least) which woke us up very early. Read more
Unfortunately we had to cancel the day before staying, due to my partner having pneumonia.
i spoke with the owner, who was very accommodating. Read more
I enjoyed my stay and would stay here again. There was a good choice of breakfast to suit all tastes including special diets which I appreciated. The rooms were spotlessly clean and I would recommend Castleview to others. Read more

The room was comfortable and clean. Shower weak. TV used digi-box and could only get about ten channels, box hidden behind curtain so not easy to use. Breakfast - full English poor but poached eggs lovely although bread white and sliced. New owner was lovely and chatty without being intrusive - feel she has plans to improve, just needs time to do it. Read more

I stayed for 2 nights, and simply needed a nice B&B to come back to at the end of a couple of long days. This B&B fit the bill, with a warm welcome on arrival and nice, clean room at the end of the day. Useful extras like tea&coffee facilities in the room added to the convenience. Read more
I couldn't fault my stay at the Castle View B&B. The staff were friendly & helpful. The room was beautifully decorated, clean and very cosy. Read more
Great stay. Superior room was very spacious, nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. A friend stayed in a Classic room and this was considerably smaller though. Owners very friendly and helpful suggesting places to eat/visit. Maps/leaflets available. Breakfast excellent, good choice and high quality cooked items.
Location ideal on quiet road, 2 minute walk to centre. Parking on road outside. Permit issued by B&B - must be displayed at all times. Traffic wardens in area very keen - beware. Read more

I was returning my elderly parents to their home after a holiday Read more
The B&B was used as a base to sleep whilst visiting friends close by. As such, I left the B&B straight after breakfast, returning late evening to sleep. The bed was comfortable and the (small) en-suite shower room clean and modern. The breakfsat was excellent each day; a lovely fresh fruit salad with juice and cereals, followed by a cooked breakfast of your choice (full english; kippers etc.). Read more

We really enjoyed our stay, Steve and Julie are a really lovely genuine couple. The location is very central and their knowledge/passion for the local area is excellent,and they love to share it. They couldnt do enough for us to make our stay enjoyable,the room was very clean,and breakfast was very tasty! We parked right outside the door and Steve supplied us with a parking permit and they even let us keep it the next morning after we had checked out so we could have a look around the shops. Read more

We wanted a few days break in Northumberland and chose to stay in Morpeth for the first time. Had one fine day so ventured north to Holy Island - lunch at the Barn at Beal was excellent. Next day was rainy so drove around and happened across Maritime Museum at Newbiggin and the Northumberland Museum at Woodhorn, both highly recommended. Read more

Thank you for your comments, we do appreciate any feed back. However, we do need to point out that Morpeth does not currently receive a digital signal and therefore Freeview is not available until September this year, so we have been told. Once we can receive a signal Freeview will be available in all rooms. Guests are more than welcome to use the dining room to work and they have access to free wi-fi and printer facilities.

Thank you Sasha for your kind remarks, it makes the job of running a B & B more pleasureable
Arrived Saturday evening, departed Tuesday morning. We wanted for nothing during our stay and found Morpeth to be a great center to stay in and travel out from. Plenty to see and do in the area and overall we had a really good time. Read more
We came to the area to visit Hadriens Wall, and Lindisfarne Castle and Abbey. Morpeth provided the perfect location to reach all the sites we wished to visit and more. A lively village! Read more
Thanks guys, we thoroughly enjoyed having you to stay, it really does make our job a lot easier when we have such lovely guests and hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Britain
We came to Morpeth to attend a funeral. Castle view was recommended. Read more
Booked at the last minute for an overnight stay. The building itself is stunning and quirky, and the cleanliness of the rooms great, with comfy beds. Overall it was good, but the place lacked any character and you could have been in a reasonable hotel rather than a B&B, which was a shame given the potential character of the building. Read more
Enjoyable and comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome and our boys felf right at home(sorry if they took all the sweets from the landing jar - I found a few in some pockets when we got home! )Our room was comfortable and the food was excellent. Read more
Perfectly adequate for my needs Read more
Thank you for your feedback it is always welcome. Your comment regarding the sachets of milk has us a little baffled as we use a box of 100 stix every 3 weeks and they have quite a long shelf life from the manufactures. We are disappointed that you did not bring this to our attention, which would have enabled us to rectify the issue or even supplied you with fresh milk.

The proprietors of Castle View certainly made my stay a very comfortable inviting one with a warm friendly welcome into their home on arrival. The room I occupied was warm spacious very clean and tastefully decorated to a high spec as was the bathroom. I opted for a full English Breakfast and I wasn't disappointed - my compliments to the chef! Out of all the B n B's on my travels this year Castle View is rated top of the list.
I highly recommend this B n B to anyone reading this. Read more
Thank you Yvonne, your kind review is much appreciated and makes all our hard work worth while. We hope to see you again in the future.

A lovley B&B with a great central location within walking distance of shops/restaurants.
The owners were very friendly with a good knowledge of the area and the B&B was clean, comfortable and a great breakfast. Read more
2 days . Kind friendly generous excellent. Will stay again Read more
For those of us who have the benefit of Free Bus Travel, this B&B is ideal. Within one minutes walk of the Bus Station, for buses all over the North East. Just park up, stay and travel here and there the next day or days. Also I would suggest ideal to get to by bus if you are thinking of doing a tour by local buses using your Government sponsored passes. Read more

We were visiting friends in Morpeth so booked a B&B close to their home - Owners were really friendly and a key was provided for both the room and for the external door. Everything was explained thoroughly, which proved useful as our evening out didn't end until quite late on and we knew not to let the doors slam on our way back in at 1:30am (they had heavy springs to satisfy fire regulations.) Breakfast at 9am was very tasty/pleasant. Read more
We appreciate all comments. However, we would like to point out that unfortunately Morpeth has not yet been switched on to receive digital TV. Once this is available all TV's will have freeview. This is something out of our control.
Great people, great rooms, incredibly clean. Tailor breakfast exactly to what you want! Plus free wifi, and within walking distance of the town center, bus station, and train station. Owners went out of their way to make sure I knew where to eat, what to visit, and how to get there. Definitely recommend it. Read more
We stayed for 2 nights under sad circumstances, to attend my fathers funeral. Steve and Julie were very welcoming and would take our 6 month old daughter off our hands to let us eat our breakfast which was wonderful. Giving residents the choice of time for breakfast meant that the food was freshly made and therefore hot and the dining room not crowded, in fact both mornings we were alone in the dining room. The room was huge and very comfortable.Will definately use them again! Read more
Stayed for a friends wedding, which was just around the corner so location perfect. Rooms were clean but a bit small in size however really nice welcome and breakfast was spot on! Read more

I was staying here for a few days whilst visiting my mother. I had one of the de luxe rooms and it was lovely. The room and linen are immaculate and the hosts friendly and helpful. I arrived tired after an early flight and they worked hard to let me in early. Read more
there was nobody there when we arrived (before 7pm) and we had difficulty getting hold of them. We had to wait around for 15-20 minutes. Breakfast was continental only. We did not feel welcomed into a family home as we have with most other B&B establishments. Room refreshment facilities were limited, the shower was second rate and the bathroom cramped. We felt it did not really merit 4 stars. Read more
This booking was made on line. We therefore telephoned the guest to inform him that on this occasion we could only offer a continental breakfast, which he accepted. We do accept that we were delayed and they did have a 10 minute wait for which we apologised profusely and they were given a discount for their inconvenience. Prior to entering our home he mentioned that he may put a poor review on line, which of course dampened any good will we had.

The whole family really enjoyed our stay and the room was beautifully presented. Read more
We are a family group, my mother and 2-year-old daughter staying in the family room. The room was beautiful altough an extra chair or two, or table/bench to place bags, would be useful.

We stayed at the Castle View bed and for 2 nights to attend a wedding in Newcastle. We booked a deluxe double en-suite and were put in the Alnwick room, which was spacious and comfortable. We were warmly greeted by Steve and Julie, who were both very helpful when it came to offering advice about where to eat, where to park, how to use the free broadband etc. The breakfasts were the most impressive part of the stay - a great variety of choice and really well cooked. Would definitely recommend Read more

My stay at Castle View is one that will remain a favourite for years. Read more
Stayed here recently and it was really good, so chose to stay again on this visit to Morpeth as it is very close to town centre but quiet and relaxed. Read more
Excellent location,friendly welcome and very clean Read more
The room was badly heated with no heating on at first then the heating came on and went off in the middle of the night. There was condensation on the window The bath had a hair in it - not mine There was no lounge to sit in the whole place felt a bit tatty not worth high priceper night Read more
All comments are welcome. Firstly, this lady arrived 2 hours prior to check in time without prior arrangement. She walked in the house without introducing herself and wheeled a dirty suitcase along the carpet. The heating comes on an hour before guests check in or sooner if the weather is particularly cold. She gave me the impression she was not staying so therefore I did not override the heating system. The chocolates are from Manzils, they give us a box as advertising for themselves.
A warm welcome, very comfortable and right in the town Read more
The owners are very kind, supporting, provide nice rooms and a superb breakfast.
The B & B is centrally located. The city is just cross the road. Public transport is only one minute away. Read more
This is a really nice B&B really close in to the centre of Morpeth but very quiet. Julie was really friendly and I was made to feel very welcome. Julie mentioned a couple of local restaurants that were good and the Italian one "Marabini's" was so good, I went there both nights, excellent food and service and full of local people on Mon\Tues nights ! Read more
Friendly service, clean rooms, well located. Read more
We thought the Castle View was very good value for money. Our room was nice, service was good and friendly, and the breakfasts were very nice. Read more
Convenient location for walking into central Morpeth. We had booked 2 rooms one standard and one larger superior and both were of excellent quality with own facilities, tv and dvd. No separate parking but town council parking permits provided by B & B for on street parking in a relatively quiet side road. Super breakfasts offering everything from full english to local Craster smoked kippers! Read more
clean,rooms with character,floors that are not level,but charming. Read more
The facilities provided by this B&B are at least at the standard you would expect of an English B&B but in addition the hosts are very friendly and informative but without been intrusive. The breakfasts a great you order what you want the night before and the time you want it and that is what you get. Best breakfasts I had the whole time I was in the UK and for me a great plus was free WiFi. Read more
Julie and Steve Lum have recently acquired 6 Dacre Street in Morpeth, and have transformed the accommodation into a place that you want to stay in - a home from home. Castle View is a quiet, family run B&B based in Morpeth, Northumberland, in the heart of North East England. A notch up from the typical rural B&B, Castle View combines the advantages of being located just off the main A1, close to Newcastle with beauty and splendour of Northumberland’s breathtaking scenery on our doorstep. The Local Area Our bed & breakfast is ideally suited for use as a base to explore and discover the many attractions of Northumberland. We are in easy driving distance of Warkworth, Chillingham, Bamburgh castles, Hadrian’s Wall and of course the famous Alnwick castle and gardens. Alternatively our accommodation would suit the business traveller who is visiting the area. We offer affordable, discrete accommodation including business facilities. Newcastle and the Metro Centre are only 30 minutes from Castle View by car. We are in walking distance from the local bus & train station. For Bank Holiday Weekends there is a minimum stay of 2 nights. If you are planning on exploring the North East this season, then make Castle View your home.
