A fabulous building. Service is exceptional as is the location. Spotlessly clean. Great wholesome food, particularly good hot and cold buffet breakfast. Tranquil location perfect for Hadrians Wall and the great Border City of Carlisle and the Lakes.

This was a great hotel. Inky downside it was not on the Hadrian's Wall path, and after a 22 mile that walk day was some distance away and up a hill. However, the staff and service more than compensated this. Of special mention is Les, the Manager, who no doubt sets the standard for service for the whole hotel. Thank... More

A beautiful building in an amazing location! Agree with previous reviews - the interior is in need of some tlc but my room was spotlessly clean and lashings of hot water for a bath/shower. Whilst the food could not be described as cordon bleu, it was excellent and plenty of it. Will definitely be returning next year for the dancing... More

The spa hotel is from a time when Gilsland was an up an coming spa town, it's about a mile from Hadrian's wall and looking like an enormous stately home dominates the countryside. The interior is a little tired in places but don't let that put you off, it's more than made up for by the helpful and freindly staff,... More

We have just spent a very enjoyable weekend here as part of a group of 30 couples on a dancing break, firstly let me say how excellent the meals were, first rate quality meats and all the trimmings cooked perfectly, the Chef(s) should be complimented highly, the hotel (owned by the Coop I believe) should make sure they hold on...

This was my fifth stay at Gilsand Spa. Peaceful, good food, idyllic surroundings & very comfortable in every way you could wish for. True to say some rooms need a makeover but they are always clean. I would challenge anyone to find better food for the price.

We spent another annual weekend break at Gilsland in a large group from the North-east and Glasgow, having a brilliant time. The hotel is in an idyllic setting and, although not state of the art (not what is needed anyway), is clean and well maintained. The staff are hard-working and pleasant, especially those in the dining room. The service in... More

Food was excellent as was the room. Swing band entertainment first class, particularly the singer was outstanding. Service from staff excellent. Altogether very enjoyable short break. Travelled with G line coaches who were very well organised.

Just returned from the Gilsland Spa Hotel. Must agree we some of the Reviews that this hotel doesn't rate 4 stars the Hotel Inspector would have a field day. Rooms are outdated and want totally upgrading. Bathroom was disgusting- door wouldn't shut or lock, mould everywhere including ceiling over bath. Old fashioned taps that didn't work. Awful coloured suite with... More
