A long way from Cornwall but well worth it for a five day stay. Receptionist was very helpful, room was at the front of the hotel and gave spectacular views across the countryside. Food was very good and served in a timely manner. A nice bar with entertainment in the evenings. Not too far from lots of places of interest,... More

A day out to Gilsland Spa Hotel for afternoon lunch and entertainment was the highlight of our week. Very pleasant coach travel to Gilsland in time to partake of tea and cake with some early dancing before a lovely three course lunch in a large and pleasant dinning room. Although only two choices for each course it was beautifully cooked... More

A very enjoyable stay. The hotel was full to bursting but at no point did we feel crowded or shut in. Loads of space, light and airy, and a grand time was had by all. The food was excellent, service was great and the staff were brilliant. Bar prices were the same as pub prices. Rooms a bit dated but... More

Room was clean but beds not comfortable and badly in need of refurbishing. Nice big bathroom. Hotel was full but bedroom on 2nd floor nice and quiet. Staff were friendly and helpful apart from one receptionist on Sat morning who was rather abrupt. Wifi was never available during my stay. Breakfasts were good as were most meals. Buffet on first...

This place is spotless and the service just can't be faulted. We couldn't do justice to the portions of food on offer. Some things are redolent of a bygone era ... but only in a good way! It not part of a huge chain, hence the personal service and value for money. The public rooms and facilities are amazing. Try... More

We have just returned from a weekend stay at this hotel on an Easy Breaks Holiday and were amazed at the value for money that this hotel gave. The location is excellent with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Inside the hotel is warm and spotlessly clean. We had a lovely big room with clean towels when required. The food...

Great service from staff. Comfortable and warm despite 5 inches of snow outside.Food was excellent. The hotel is situated in a beautiful area with woodland walks not far from the hotel. There are supposed to be red squirrels around but we saw none. The weather we experienced they were probably sensibly hiding in their drays. Would certainly use this hotel... More

I reviewed this hotel in October 2013 when I came as part of a large group. I thought it was wonderful then - but I see the reviews have got better and better (new Manager) and I came again on my own for a business meeting. Once again I was fortunate enough to get a front room with a view... More
