Featuring a blend of 18th century architecture and modern facilities, our hotel is centrally situated in the town, within the medieval walls and a short walk from the old quayside.

We offer a lovely walled garden to the rear of the hotel, a wonderful place in which to relax of an evening with a glass of wine, or dine al fresco throughout the summer months. The restaurant caters for a wide variety of tastes providing breakfast, lunch and dinner each day of the year. Sunday lunch was brought back serving a succulent roast. Come and pay us a visit and let us look after you whilst you look around the Northumberland and Scottish countryside.
The Kings Arms Hotel dates back to the 18th century, when it was a coaching inn known as the Hotel on Hide Hill. The ground floor and gardens of the Old Town Assembly Rooms were stables and accommodation. The hotel had famous visitors such as writers Charles Dickens and Lewis Carroll. By the end of the 19th century, the Kings Arms became central to the town's social life and was a base for the merchants and traders of the former corn exchange at the bottom of Hide Hill. Into the 21st century, the hotel has resisted urges to sell to popular pub, restaurant and tourist chains. Instead, the management have focused on maintaining the Kings Arms as an independent townhouse hotel. If you are looking for a weekend 2-night stay, there are sometimes special offers running on certain dates. There also have weekly 7-night stay rates.
