Stopped off here and decided to have a meal, staff were friendly and service was very good. A good selection available on the menu, had homemade soup and the Sunday roast and a couple of drinks, worth a visit.

Brampton is a tiny market town where I spent my teenage years. The hotel proved to be an ideal base as it is central in the town. Friendly staff, good food and Guiness and olde world character. The area around has beautiful countryside and you are very close to all the Roman Wall and it forts and museums.

This was a stopover on the way south, found after searching late on a Bank Holiday Saturday night. We had the last room. It is in the attractive centre of Brampton, so we had thought it might be noisy; actually it was one of quietest rooms we have stayed in. The hotel has been recently redecorated, possibly since some earlier... More

The welcome at this small family run hotel was friendly and helpful, and the service was everything we could have wanted. The room was unexpectedly charming and the evening meal was very good and in an historic and atmospheric setting.

Do not stay here if you intend to sleep/ rest. The bar is open till 1am at weekends and most rooms are above this, then at turn out time a street brawl. Not particularly welcoming, food mediocre. Room dated and requires attention.

The Howard is ideally placed for our family get-togethers, and we arranged a late lunch this afternoon. There were six of us, all adults, and four dogs too. It's lovely to find somewhere so dog-friendly but still so clean and with such good food. We were seated by the fire (a great spot for a damp January day!) and made... More

Called in here for a lunch time snack with an ex work colleague/friend. The service was appalling and we waited over three quarters of an hour for two ploughman lunches. Unfortunately, my friend had to return to work so we had to leave without our food. On leaving the barmaid was quite abusive, telling us we had not been there... More

I cannot give a higher mark because the bathroom did not have a mat for the shower and one was expected to come out on the bare linoleum floor. nevertheless the room was warm, clean with wifi and all necessary to make a couple of cups of tea. the staff is very friendly and I had a great abundant breakfast
