Nice staff but room needs some TLC as very dated and not well maintained. Curtains hanging off the rail, cobwebs and the lights tripped the whole floor ! Bathroom mouldy and bath handles positively dangerous (loose and badly repaired). Had the Sunday roast - it was inedible, did tell them but they just shrugged. Husband's curry was ok.

We had a prearranged arrival time but we were a bit late, however this didn't cause a problem. Nice welcome, efficient staff who all seemed very involved with the running of the hotel. Nice beds, clean room, maybe a bit outdated. The rooms were named after Charles Dickens characters. Food acceptable but nothing special. Entertainment in the bar on Saturday... More

We stayed one night B&B. We had a large room with a four poster bed, a large en suite (complete with power shower), and thoughtfully provided with fresh fruit. We ate in the hotel in the evening, and thought the standard of food was excellent, and very good value. The owners are Spanish I think and there was a lot... More

We stopped over yesterday for lunch and were impressed by the service, cleanliness, atmosphere and most of all the quality of both meals, I had the delicious mediterranean meat ball pasta and my wife the Howard Arms burger... Delicious, quick on the table within ten minutes and overall value for money 2 for £ 11.95.....sound, will be back!!!

We were in Brampton and picked this pub by chance for lunch. Atrocious service...waited half an hour for food. The food was really poor, especially for what it cost. You can find better in Brampton. Avoid this one.

Stopped off in Brampton, Northumberland to find somewhere to have a bite if lunch. Came across this hotel, it had a lovely feel to it, was clean, staff were very helpful. We ordered off the special board - 2 meals for £11.95 & what we got was very good, it came quickly & our waitress was friendly & helpful x

Our room was clean and comfortable. The evening meal was average but very expensive for what we had. The service was not very good, the lady serving us seemed unable to cope, we asked for a bottle of wine and she brought the wrong one and I'm still waiting for my glass of water!! The bar staff were very friendly,... More

This review is not about the quality of the hotel (room passable, food not so great) but about the atrocious customer service. The hotel charged me for two nights when I only stayed for one and then refused to refund the difference. Long story short: I'd amended the date of my one night stay (well within the timescale to avoid... More
