Stayed here for two nights, Friday and Saturday, while revisiting the area. A great find. Les is a brilliant host and can't do enough for his guests. Our evening meals were well cooked and generous in the portion size. Just what was needed after a day walking. The Old Repeater Station is dog friendly too which is a plus point... More

We walk the Hadrian way and there is no better place to stay on that region. Our dinner was delicious. Les is a great host and will make everything to make your stay memorable. If you are walking do not trust the shortcut to get there thru the ditch....it is impossible.

We stayed there on the Hadrians Wall walk. Its in a remote area & looked bleak as we walked up towards it. We had met some Americans earlier in the day & they had commented that it was dirty & that Les wasnt a good host & had told them that the best seat for watching TV was HIS seat.... More

For those coming from Chollerford this is the last possible stop before the crags, one of the most interesting sections of the Hadrian's Wall path. Comfort and warmness followed by a polite congeniality may be some of the characteristics impressed by the owner to the Old Repeater Station. In many ways, they make the house be larger than it looks... More

Very well placed stopping point for the Hadrians Wall walk. Les is a great host, very welcoming and a very dry sense of humour. We had a superb lamb shank for our evening meal washed down with some very nice beer. Afterwards we all sat down and sang along to the Last Night of the Proms - a memorable stay.

Les was kind enough to wait up for our very late arrival from Bristol, courtesy of a delayed flight & a very tricky drive through a really thick Northumberland fog. His breakfasts were certainly worth getting up for, as was the walking & Les's local knowledge was both entertaining & helpful for planning the day. Don't be put off by... More

Les is a great host and his establishment is great value as well as being in an excellent location for visiting Hadrian's Wall. The rooms are clean and tidy and Les's breakfasts are well worth getting up for. Do stay for an evening meal which will be good value and very tasty.

Brilliant views, very warm and friendly welcome and tasty breakfasts made with excellent ingredients. We stayed for a wedding and met many returning guests, always a good sign of a place you know you want to come back to.

Arriving on the motorbike and being told you can put in the garage is one of the best things you hear at a b+b. Was then given advice on two good routes to ride over the next two days, Les is a brilliant host with a decent selection of bottled local ales. Would stay there again and perhaps even look... More
