We stayed here for two nights recently and absolutely loved this hotel. The rooms were all lovely, cosy and very quiet. The en-suite was large with a fabulous shower and free standing bath. Food in the restaurant was great with plenty of choice - excellent breakfast too. Service was excellent throughout. An added bonus was the lovely coffee shop on... More

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. Very friendly, nice staff. The floors in the hotel are interesting, when getting out of bed the first morning you could feel a definite slope towards the... More

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
