We loved this place. Clean, comfortable, and great food. But the best part of it was Les and the other guests. He drew us into intelligent, interesting and amusing conversation, making it the most memorable night of our trip. We were sorry to leave in the morning!

Interesting time with Les - a real character . We didn't drink enough alcohol to build up a big bill - think Les would have preferred to have built up a far bigger bill . Brilliant food and breakfast - good going for a bloke ! Excellent company and good laugh . Thanks for lending us a map. Will see... More

Really enjoyed our stay! Breakfast was amazing. We stayed while travelling from Carlisle to hadrians wall. Would recommend to anyone. Made to feel really welcome, nice places locally for dinner but not on a Sunday night! Local bottled ales were a nice touch

Perfect location for walking Hadrian's Wall, this is a special place. An upmarket hostel, with really comfortable bunk beds. Well equipped, and great food provided by the host. And the only place we stayed that had a Scrabble set !

My wife, son and I stayed here for one night (one double and one single room). My son and I were undertaking the Hadrian’s Cycleway over a total of four days and this was our third stop. A warm welcome from Les. There is off-road parking and the bikes were safely kept in a locked garage. A great location with... More

We arrived wet and weary at 6.30pm to a warm welcome, drying room and an offer to delay dinner until we were ready. The home cooked food was delicious and plentiful, just what was needed and a very welcome selection of loacl ale rounded it off beautifully. Breakfast sets you up for another day on the Wall. Les is lots... More

We caught the bus down to the Twice Brewed Inn [£3.50 single – about 5 miles] and strolled back along the wall to The Old Repeater, stopping off on the way at the Roman fort visitors’ centre at Housesteads for a cuppa. The fort... More
