  • "A very comfortable apartment and very good response over minor maintenance issues."

    The lighting in the sitting room was not adequate for reading and knitting. Would recommend this apartment.

  • "Sandybrae is a beautiful flat."

    It was our second visit and felt like coming home, can't say more. Thank you

  • "We really enjoyed our week in Sandybrae in a quiet location close to the high street and the beach and is a spacious and comfortable place to stay."

    Modern, smart kitchen and bathroom and shower rooms with quality fittings. Every appliance provided that you could need. Very comfortable beds. Wifi reception is not good but that's a difficulty of the location. Parking is a bonus as street parking quickly gets full. Only improvements I could suggest would be a couple of lamps in the lounge for better lighting for reading by and much brighter ceiling lights in the bedrooms as they were a bit dark.

  • "Overall excellent in every respect."

    One niggle is that we could not get the bath water to run consistently hot despite attempts to do so.

  • "The apartment was in good order and well equipped."

    However, the kitchen is poorly designed, in so far as it requires a substantial amount of leg work to obtain or return plates, cups etc form dishwasher? More importantly. The bathroom sinks. I shave in the morning and wash my face with water in the sinks. Those taps amount to potential head injury and damage. Finally, my wife complains constantly with regard to a lack of a full length mirror and access to a mirror while attending to her hair. Being sparse on top means that this is not an issue for me!

  • "I loved my stay in Sandybrae!"

    It is well located in the charming and friendly village of Alnmouth. The flat is very well equipped, extremely clean, comfortable and spacious. Anything one might need for cooking, tips for touring the Northumberland coast, etc. has been thoughtfully added to the flat. The private parking and garden is a bonus. Thanks to the sunshine I managed to use the garden as well. Thanks Sandybrae for a wonderful stay in Alnmouth!

    Ideal position in the village, short walk to all pubs, restaurants and amenities - and the golf course! Private parking is a bonus - I suspect invaluable in high season. Would absolutely recommend and we intend to return very soon. Thank you
