I booked the Cumberland hotel, and three course evening meal (£13!) via their website without any hassle, about 2 weeks before my stay. I and 5 motorcycling friends then stayed at the hotel on the weekend of 29th March. We stayed in two rooms, 1 and 3, each of which has three beds. The rooms are spacious and had enough... More

Stayed at the Cumberland Hotel for one night after walking from Haltwhistle along the South Tynedale trail. All the staff were friendly, the accommodation was comfortable and quiet, the beer in the bar was good and the full English breakfast hit the spot. Would recommend.

Stayed here 1 night on business, booked by my company. Food was excellent, lots of local fayre and I was surprised how reasonably priced it was. The hospitality and friendliness of the owner, his wife and indeed all the staff was outstanding. Clean, warm and very comfortable bedroom with a breathtaking view. Don't expect bright lights and too much excitement... More

Our first visit to the Cumberland, we stayed between Xmas & New Year, along with our dog and we loved it. Staff were excellent, extremely friendly and helpful. A great bar menu & as someone else has said, a good selection of veggie food too (the veggie lasagne was gorgeous). We had a lovely big room at the front of... More

First time at this venue and very impressed. Exceeded our expectations. 6 vegetarian main meals to select from Great value. Staff were very friendly as we're locals. Good pub grub at good value with good atmosphere. Ticked all the boxes for a bar meal out. Will return. A warm welcoming venue.

Really enjoyed our stay here. The staff are great and really helpful. Bar very friendly and a good selection of local real ales. Food was excellent. The room we had could have done with some updating but was ok for what we wanted. I'd definitely stay again

Overwhelming smell from the deep fat fryer throughout the Inn. Made us feel sick. Decor is rundown. Room had mould on wall/curtain/shower. Food was straight out of the freezer and straight into the deep fat fryer. On arrival staff were friendly and helpful. My room was near the kitchen and extractor fan in kitchen was a disturbance until after 11pm... More

We stayed at a cottage outside Alston and visited the hotel on a number of occasions for lunch after walks in the surrounding hills. Although it doesn't look much from the outside the welcome was warm and friendly, the food tasty and reasonably priced and there was an excellent choice of real ales and ciders. Nothing is too much bother... More

This is the second time that we have stayed here, and although the outside is looking a little bit worse for wear, the welcome, the accommodation and the food are still of a high standard. We booked a table for dinner, and then sat at a table near the window to enjoy the views. As we were about to head... More

We stayed here during our C2C. The pub food was fine, lovely views from the terrace at the back, and breakfast was excellent. But the rooms were shabby and could have been cleaner. There was a strange smell in one room which we couldn't place. Disappointing.
