Hotel staff extremely warming and polite from bar staff, cafe staff, well all we met. Food was a big surprise and deserving lots of praise. Well done Chef. Bar area is quaint with log fire. Drinks reasonably priced. Great place to visit Hexham etc.

Was at Alston House on Friday night for a retirement party, was lovely and clean food was really nice, staff were very friendly. It's a great size if your looking for other entertainment such as a wedding, or even a stop off place if your wanting a tea or coffe and a snack. The building stands in its own grounds... More

It was late summer and we were staying near to Alston which is a bleak and isolated little town. We'd had a long day and were hungry but didn't fancy the fish and chip shop. The Alston House Hotel doesn't look very special from the outside but inside it's spacious with several large rooms. We had only gone there to... More

I went there for lunch with a friend. The ambience is a bit grim with no soft furnishings and bare tables and floors. It can be worse though as they said that they played music. We were fortunate that they didn't. The food was good and wholesome and the bread exceptional. I have been there previously for tea in a... More

Great hotel, Carole runs this place with a smile and can't do enough for you, room was really nice and very clean, food was great. Second visit this year and will go back. Nice garden out the back, which on a summers evening would be lovely.

We recently spent a week in Alston with our two teens and visited Alston House several times. Dog friendly, and helpful staff. Nice surroundings. Weather not nice enough to sit outside but garden looked nice. Varied and wide menu with good specials board. Would have no hesitation in recommending Alston House.

Alston House gives very good value. After a warm welcome the staff provided efficient, friendly service together with a willingness to meet individual requests. My immaculate room was modern and comfortable. The quality and quantity of the well prepared food more than satisfied my appetite. Real ale in the bar completed an enjoyable visit.

Stayed here for one night whilst on coast to coast bike ride from Whitehaven. Lovely rooms, very comfy beds, great food. Quite an oasis in the middle of the pennines. Rooms a good size, all mod cons supplied. Great stopover having just climbed and descended Hartside.

Lovely, comfortable and stylish rooms with good biscuits and beverages. My room had a bath only which was really lovely but you may want to specify a shower if you have that preference. Amazing food in the restaurant (I recommend the chocolate brownie) and breakfasts. We received a lovely warm welcome and the staff were friendly throughout our stay.
