Was staying in the Kyte for a night. The rooms are standard but pleasant. Hotel is undergoing slight renovations so usual disruption such as trying to avoid wet paint but wasn't that much of a nuisance. Had the Tomato and Mozzeralla salad to start which was very nice. Then had the Rump steak for main, the steak was cooked to...

Stayed the one night. Ate well in the restaurant with a simple menu but well cooked and excellent staff. Ultimate destination is Northumberland but this makes an excellent stopover from London. Reasonable prices. Recommend

Just returned from my daughters afternoon tea party, what can I say it was amazing. Food and presentation was faultless. Cannot recommend this place enough. A massive thanks to mark the executive chef. So many amazing comments in regards to the food! Cannot wait to return with the mums for a grownup afternoon tea with prosecco!!

The Kyte put on a really lovely evening for us. We were a group of 8 adults seated together at a large round table, which had party decorations and nibbles waiting for us as soon as we arrived. There was music from a couple of DJ s, with a party game to start the night. The buffet was delicious with...

After having been here before and not enjoying it we decided to give it another try. Soup starters were lovely and came with rustic breadroll and the garlic mushrooms went down a treat. Mains were mostly gammon which were huge and perfectly cooked with homemade rustic chips which were beautiful. I had Chorizo spinach and ricotta tortellini pasta which was...

Excellent service from helpful and friendly staff, great food too. The service benefited from food being pre ordered and all diners having their own allocated table and time slot. The process worked really well and despite our party having a later time slot we weren't rushed and it resulted in a really special Christmas Day for us. Would definitely recommend.

This was my second stay here at the Kate, The room I was given was large with an extra single bed and a wet room. However the wet room was freezing I found the towel rail wasn't connected and the hand basin was the smallest I've ever had in a hotel The cost is low and the staff are good
