LUXLIFE MAGAZINE | 9 Xmas 2018 cases to the bedrooms for the guests. We genuinely believe that the friendly service we offer, and attention to detail for our guests needs, far exceeds that offered by large hotel chains or premises with very large numbers of guests.” When discussing the fine establishment, Sharon explains how they ensure that the services that they offer ensure that their guests receive a memorable experience. “Here at Aln House Bed & Breakfast, we offer a warm and friendly greeting to all of our guests upon arrival to make them feel at home, in fact many comment how relaxed they feel away from the hustle and bustle of their busy lives. “The house is decorated and furnished as a home with many black and white framed photographs on the walls, each featuring a local place of interest or outstanding view, from the beaches to wildlife and castles set against stunning scenery. We ask whether guests intend to visit Alnwick Gardens or Castle and provide discount vouchers for money off the entrance fee. We provide details of local restaurants, both locally and further afield, and a map with precise locations/directions. We enjoy chatting to our guests about what they have seen during the day, any suggestions for future guests, and spend the time getting to know about new places and restaurants to visit.” Looking ahead to what the future holds, Sharon signs off by revealing the exciting plans which lie in the pipeline for the fine establishment. “Moving forward, Alnwick and the local area full of history and since 1925 the Playhouse in town has provided a focus for screening of film, theatre, music and performing arts. It is currently being totally re-furbished, and it will be spectacular when it re opens. Steam train enthusiasts will be interested to know that Aln Valley Railway volunteers are relaying the track between Alnwick and Alnmouth, a lovely seaside village just four miles away, so that direct access will be available within the next 12 – 18 months. It really does conjure up memories of a by gone era. Alnwick Garden is constantly evolving with different plants and flowers changing throughout the four seasons, vibrant colours and scents provide a different experience on each visit. The coastline remains unaffected by commercialism seen in other areas of the country, there are no Kiss Me Quick hats or toffee apples here, just lovely clean beaches, quaint little fishing harbours and restaurants serving fresh local ingredients to those seeking a relaxed and quieter pace of life.” Contact: Sharon Lumley Company: Aln House Bed & Breakfast Address: South Road, Alnwick, Northumberland, NE66 2NZ, UK Telephone: 01665 602265 Web Address:
