Came for daughters 30th bash at a local campsite. Stayed 1 night here! The staff were friendly and informative. They provided plate of evening sandwiches in my room for late return from campsite. Food in restaurant had a wide choice of tempting dishes. Excellent stopover!

Comfortable rooms, good food and a warm welcome for us walkers and the dog. Couldn't wish for more. The hotel is ideal for those doing the pennine walk or the south tyne way as well as for those looking for somewhere to stay in this beautiful countryside.

Alston itself is set high in the Cumbrian Moors and quite isolated, but this is exactly what we were looking for, as walking was on our agenda , along... More

Booked last minute and got 2 fabulous rooms, Alston House was brilliant, rooms were very clean, proprietors couldn't do enough for us and the food was delicious.

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
