Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A unique listed building in the heart of Alnwick, The Bear and Bank House gets its name from its rich history, when a Victorian barber reportedly kept bears in the basement. The other half of its name comes from the fact the building was first built as a savings bank around 1852. The two bedroom property is fully refurbished throughout providing a great place to stay, set across three floors the bear and bank is accessed through a private door on the pedestrianised Narrowgate.

The space
As it is a listed 4 story building, there are a lot of stairs and so may be problematic for those with physical disabilities. The bathroom is on the top floor. Please note there is no microwave in the kitchen.
