3Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
22 Cottage Road, , , Wooler, NE71 6AD
Nestled by the Cheviot Hills in the quaint town of Wooler, this family-run former Coaching Inn offers a welcoming ambiance with cosy log fires, seasonal cuisine, stunning scenery, free Wi-Fi and parking. Originally built in the 17th Century by the Earl of Tankerville, it has a long history of providing comfort and warmth to travellers wishing to explore the beauty of the Northumbrian countryside. To this day, the hotel has retained this traditional spirit of hospitality and has garnered a fantastic reputation for its friendly and helpful service. Central to this is the cultivation of a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere supported by some wonderful views, lovely gardens and a sense of charm and style that effortlessly evokes the captivating allure of its vibrant past.

The Hotel offers 17 en-suite bedrooms and, as benefits a building of this age, each one is wonderfully unique and full of individual character. Tastefully decorated in a style reflective of the wider property, what these rooms do share is a commitment to providing a high standard of comfort and a peaceful night’s sleep. Every room also features complimentary Wi-Fi access, freeview TV, hairdryer, direct-dial telephone and tea and coffee making facilities as well as some fantastic views of the gardens and the surrounding countryside. There are room types to suit all kinds of traveller, including single, classic and superior double or twin options. What’s more there is also a separate 2-bedroom Garden House in the grounds.

Of course, no visit to Tankerville Arms would be complete without sampling the delights of the elegant Cheviot Restaurant. Wowing locals and visitors alike, it has built up a dedicated following over the years, becoming a real hit among those who appreciate truly great food. Their first-class Chef prides himself on using fresh, locally sourced seasonal produce wherever possible. Specialising in traditional Northumbrian fayre, the menu features such regional delights as beef from Glendale livestock, lamb from the Till Valley and fresh fish from Amble – all beautifully accompanied by Northumbrian Real Ales and local meads. The restaurant itself has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and overlooks the Hotel’s beautifully maintained garden where guests can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining on those warmer Summer days. During the colder months, the Copper Bar has its own large log fire and is the perfect place for pre-dinner drinks and socialising with friends old and new.

With such splendid surroundings and exemplary service, it is no surprise to learn that the Hotel is a perfect venue for weddings and other celebrations. From small intimate affairs to lavish occasions for up to 100 people, the hotel has the flexibility and the know-how to ensure that all events are both memorable and successful. For conferences and other corporate events, they have two meeting rooms able to cater for up to 30 people boardroom-style or 70 theatre-styles.

Located in the heart of Wooler in Northumberland, the hotel is conveniently just a 20 minute drive from the A1 and less than half an hour from Berwick-upon-Tweed. It also offers ample on-site parking for all guests. The nearest city is Newcastle, about an hour’s drive away, whilst it is approximately a 90 minute drive to Edinburgh. Berwick Railway Station offers excellent transport links to the rest of the country and the hotel can arrange a taxi to collect guests upon request. For those flying in, Newcastle International Airport is just over an hour’s drive from the hotel. The hotel resides right in the heart of North Northumberland and the local area offers an abundance of great activities and attractions. Epitomising the virtues of peace, quiet and complete relaxation it is renowned as a place of stunning natural beauty. The Cheviot Hills make for a wild, romantic landscape of rolling hills and unspoilt rivers and features awe-inspiring views across the sea. The dramatic hills and sheltered valleys of Northumberland National Park stretch all the way from Hadrian’s Wall to the Scottish Border creating a virtual paradise for lovers of the great outdoors. With ample opportunities for walking, rambling, bird-watching, cycling and horse-riding, the area is infused with an inspired sense of freedom and adventure. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne has a rhythm all of its own, taking in Lindisfarne Castle, Gospel Garden and Priory and also the Owl Sanctuary in Beal. History buffs can explore the wonders of the iconic Alnwick Castle, one of the largest inhabited castles in Europe. Indeed, younger visitors are sure to recognise it as the location of Hogwarts in the first two Harry Potter films. Further afield and spanning nine acres of land on its rocky plateau high above the Northumberland coastline, Bamburgh Castle offers over two thousand years of exhilarating history. Once the Royal Seat of the Kings of Northumbria it has seen centuries of bloody battles, royal rebellions, spellbinding legends and grisly ghost stories.

Excellent hospitality
Very friendly and helpful staff in a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. The wedding party on Saturday night was not too disruptive. The standard of room was very good. Whilst not located in the centre of Wooler it is well located for visiting the tourist spots in the area.

Room 14 a "no no"
All I can say is if you are travelling alone avoid room 14. Not only is there no view but the windows are frosted half way up so that you can see nothing - not even the weather! The water pressure is so low that it is positively uncomfortable trying to have a shower. The toilet seat wobbles and the replacement towels were as thin as rags. Everything is very basic! The bed is quite comfortable and it seemed to be clean enough. The saving grace of the hotel is the staff. Everyone was very helpful and friendly and it is very dog-friendly.

American guests with us
It would be churlish to register any serious complaint given the room rate offered to us. However, the hotel might wish to review the practice of rushing guests through into the dining room and the selection of menus.

Olde World Charm
A very comfortable if slightly small room, spotlessly clean and more than adequate. Evening meal was very nice with suficient choice. Breakfasts were also very good. Staff were all extremely pleasant and couldn't do enough to help make our stay enjoyable. Real value for money.
