Me and my friends stayed at this hotel while completing a Hadrian's wall. The outside of the hotel is beautiful and well situated above the surrounding scenery. It is quite close to the Hadrian's wall path so a good location for walkers attempting that route. We arrived on Sunday night at 8:05. On arrival we were told that food service... More

Stayed here for a weekend in July. The building is a large, lovely late Victorian pile at the top of a hill overlooking the village of Gilsland. Our room was well equipped and clean with a great view of Northumberland and Cumbria. The Gilsland Spa has an attractive faded feeling about it and the high ceilings and general decor give... More

Good stopping off place. Friendly staff, food was of a good standard and reasonable. Most people in the hotel were of an older generation and used the hotel as a club house, everyone spoke, you could see them dancing in the ballroom, some came every week. Enjoined it.

Located in pleasing countryside near the village of Gilsland. On arrival it has a dated air but nonetheless charming. Well staffed with good natured and helpful locals. Nice walking country. The bedrooms are a bit worn but spacious, clean and well equipped. The food is excellent.

It is not hard to imagine how this hotel was during the glory days, it is an impressive building in magnificent surroundings. The hotel itself has passed its peak, but that said you get value for money, the rooms are tidy and the staff is helpful.

If you read the word 'spa' I think of sauna, swimmingpool, massages and so on. But as far as I could tell the spa referred only to an onsite hairdresser. Yes....the evironment of the hotel is beautiful and an even better word would be peaceful and quiet. I got in an hour before regular check-in time, but after a quick... More

As a family we are frequent to the Gilsland Spa Hotel for food on a Sunday. It is a typical old school country grand hotel. The decor is beautifully dated & the surrounding of the old roman villages are stunning on a nice day or a (usually) rainy day. The staff & level of service is a solid 8/9 out... More
