    Poor value for money

    Rooms were tidy and clean, but disappointed that rooms were changed from those booked.. No information in rooms about the Hotel or history of castle. (told in process of upgrade, but would have preferred the old information rather than nothing!) Party noise late at night which kept us up,( as the Castle is often used for weddings, guests stay pre and post wedding so appears can be noisy ) Breakfast a real disappointed for a mid range Hotel. The buffet part of the breakfast was budget, limited cereals, minimal fruit, 3 pastries on a plate, 2 juices. Most of these ran out an the waiter had little time to re-fill. No hot drinks were on buffet, so had to order them via the waiter which was a long wait, and when came only enough for one hot drink. Getting a top up almost impossible. Ordered full cooked breakfast but was only 1/2 the size you would expect. So the breakfast took 2 -3 times as long as it should with everything coming through the waiter and was only half the quality you would expect.

    Hexham and more wall

    ... When the wall was first built it only had small secure guard posts and watch towers. Places like vindolanda and Corbridge were built to defend important sites such as cross roads or river crossings away from the wall. Very quickly they decided that the wall needed it's own forts and Corbridge was converted to a supply depot. The grain stores ...

    On to two Roman forts, vindolanda, just off Hadrian's wall, and housesteads, actually on the wall. Vindolanda is a wonderful site of a classic Roman fort with an adjoining civilian settlement. There is also an exceptionally good museum. Excavations continue at two locations at the site, one in the fort and one in the village. Just a few miles away and up on the wall itself is housesteads, another classical Roman fort, ie the same layout as vindolanda, built as one of the main wall ...

    Took the scenic route on the A64 with the first stop Castle Howard. Vast gardens, dotted with lakes and fountains. Castle known for being in TV series Brideshead Revisited. We didn't go inside, but wandered around the beautiful grounds. Had lunch in the pretty little village of Hutton-Le-Hole on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors. Then on over the moors. Very, very pretty ...

    ... in to the archway entrance of the castle. We somehow slipped through about a metre or so to be marched by the gatekeeper. One of the graduation after events was to be held there. Oops. Back down into town. Grabbed a sandwich and a coffee before returning to the car and heading out of town. TomTom got us out of town and we managed to get on to the coast road but TomTom was too efficient and changed the route I was expecting. Always tries to head to a main highway? So ...
