I've know Alston House for years as I used to live in Alston and it's always provided a friendly welcome with good quality food. But until last week, I'd never stayed there as a guest. I have to say our room, Room 3, was absolutely lovely; spacious, comfortable and with a fantastic bathroom. I really couldn't fault it and will... More

Had a couple of midweek nights here, very comfy room. Good food in evenings, breakfast could be better, pretty basic but adequate. The sea bass I had on the first night was wonderful.

After a hard day in the saddle a very joyful welcome and invite to the bar was well received. The rooms were good and being too lazy to go out to eat we settled for the restaurant. A real treat with excellent food and special recommendation for the apple crumble and custard - nearly as good as my mum's

We stopped off here while having a drive out on Sunday. From the outside the place looks quite elegant but it’s very tired on the inside. We pondered whether or not to eat but so pleased we did. We didn’t have anything adventurous, just two full English that were cooked just perfect and one Beef Chilli that was described ‘as... More

My friends and I have stayed here many times when cycling the c2c route over 2 days and are always looked after come rain or shine. The welcome is great, the rooms and food are great and there is a safe place for the bikes and an area to dry wet clothes. Perfect for us.
