Stopped here 1 night whilst walking Hadrians Wall. Staff really friendly and helpful right from the moment we arrived. Had a meal in the bistro and this was excellent value and big portions. Hotel very busy with several coach parties present. The breakfast , an additional £8.50 each on top of the £68 we paid for the en-suite room ,... More

If I had my way I would live there, it's quiet, peaceful, plenty to do, both inside the hotel and outside if you look for it. My partner and I have been about nine times and the food despite what anyone else says is above top class, my partner use to be a chef. The rooms are very very clean... More

Only stayed one night here, found it to be clean and comfortable. Was given a very large room, big bathroom and wonderful view. Evening meal excellent but the breakfast buffet even though was very busy the food could have been hotter. At night the entertainment consisted of bingo and two men with musical entertainment.

This hotel is like stepping back into the 1960's! Very tired decor. Meals very basic. Young waiters were very pleasant and obliging. Entertainment geared up for over 70's. Wouldn't go back, but it was a cheap organized weekend with trips which were excellent.

Just back from one night stay at the Gilsland Spa Hotel. On arrival, the front desk lady was talking to a young man, he smiled but the lady on the desk just ignored us and kept talking. Almost 10 mins later she said hello which I found quite rude. If the hotel was not so far out, I think I... More

Was upgraded from single room to a double on arrival at no extra cost, hallways smelt slightly musty but room was very fresh and clean, although a little outdated. Restaurant and bar service was very good with friendly staff and good sized portions of fresh tasty food. Views from the room were fantastic. I did not have the opportunity to... More

We just had our wedding here. The staff were excellent! Nothing was too much trouble. The food the setting and venue was great. There is loads of great places for photographs and safe places for young kids to run about.

The carvery was recommended by the owner of a B&B where I stayed a few weeks ago. The weather was absolutely awful that day and I hoped that even though I didn't have a reservation, I could still get a meal. Although they were fully booked, the staff very graciously set-up a small table for me. The food (usual carvery... More
