Excellent hotel, the staff were very friendly and accommodating throughout the stay. The room was spacious, well decorated with a very modern bathroom. The hotel is in a great location just minutes from the shops and walks. We stayed 3 nights and ate at the hotel for evening meals and tea and cake in the café as it was, by... More

I went recently to my stepdaughters wedding at Alston House. We could not have been treated better in a 5 star hotel. The food and accomadation were excellent also the friendlyness and helpfulness of the staff could not have been bettered. The food was also of a very high standard from the wedding breakfast to breakfast the next morning.

We stayed here for two nights on a LivingSocial package deal which was excellent value. We ate in the hotel both nights, one [3 course] meal included in the package. The owners and staff were very welcoming and friendly and helpful, morning, noon, and night. Our bedroom was comfortable; perhaps a little warm for me but windows provided ventilation; bathroom...

We were treated with a Wowcher by a friend for a one night stay including dinner and breakfast. Beautiful room and very comfy. Lovely bathroom and toiletries. Made very welcome even though we arrived slightly early. Spent some time in bar looking at birds in garden using bird feeder. Charming. Great restaurant food.
