We've been staying at Alison House for a number of years now, and every time, it doesn't disappoint. From the large spacious rooms to the friendly welcome, it's one of our favourite hotels in the UK.

The dining room itself is very... More

It is 4 days after our wedding at Alison house. All of my 50 guests have raved about the rooms, breakfast, bar staff, food and welcoming atmosphere. As the bride, sharon gave me support and everything i needed was no bother. The garden room was a bit of a challenge to make into the ceremony room but with balloons, 10... More

We chose Alison House after visiting a few places in the area to hold a celebration of life. The staff were professional, understanding, kind of helpful. I decided to stay the night before and the evening of the celebration, together with some other family members. My room was upstairs in "The Cottage" and was very pleasant. My sister and her... More
