Beautiful hotel in a great location. Staff were friendly and keen to help, showing me to my room which was to a great standard and very clean. I ate my evening meal in the restaurant and the food was excellent and fairly priced. Would highly recommend this hotel

An enjoyable 1 night stay in the Alston House Hotel in December 2014. A few pints in the Turks Head in the village followed by a delicious meal at the hotel, a great night's sleep and a good breakfast. A cafetiere and coffee in the room was a nice touch much appreciated.

Stayed here on a travelzoo deal, hotel has lots of old world charm mixed with a modern twist. The food was of good quality and great value. Alston does not have a lot to offer as a winter town Penrith not too far away though certainly worth a visit here
