Facts & Questions

Our guest house strictly prohibits weddings and parties: We expect guests to treat the Bondgate Boutique with the utmost respect, just as they would their own homes. Please be considerate of other guests on the premises and keep noise levels to an absolute minimum when returning to your room late at night. We specialise in providing a discreet and peaceful environment, and therefore, do not allow guests to bring non-paying visitors onto the premises under any circumstances. Any damage caused to fixtures or fittings will be charged in full and added to your bill for immediate payment upon departure.

Damage to Bondgate Property: Guests will be held personally responsible and liable for any damage caused by deliberate, negligent, accidental, or reckless acts to the hotel’s property or structure. If damage is discovered during your stay, we will inform you immediately. If damage is discovered after you have departed, we reserve the right to charge your credit/debit card or send an invoice for payment to your registered address. We will make every effort to rectify any damage internally before contracting specialists to make repairs, thus minimizing any costs you may incur.

Liability: Guests are personally liable for any charges incurred during their stay, and their liability for such charges is not waived under any circumstances. In the case of a group booking, the lead or registered guest (the lead guest) who provides credit/debit card details is personally responsible for any person, group, company, or association that fails to pay all or part of such charges.

We don’t provide breakfast. But, breakfast is available, next to or close to The Bondgate Boutique.

The Plough Hotel (next door) is our number one recommendation. Beautiful food right on your doorstep. There is also Barter Books, Alnwick Playhouse and Costa Coffee all just a short stroll.

Nevertheless, we remain available should guests require any assistance.
