The hotel isn't in a pictureque village, nor is it a lakeland stunner, but it is well positioned and offers a very pleasant stay. The husband and wife couple are very friendly and they offer great food in very pleasant surroundings. We got our trip on Travelzoo, so it wa a bargain. The room was a tad quirky, but very... More

stayed in april 2014. alston looks like a faded treasure and the hotel itself isn't in a glorious spot - some bulidings in the vicinity rather run-down. however, the hotel was very quirky with nique, individual rooms.

Stayed here for two nights together with a friend whilst our children visited the nearby Robinwood activity centre with school. The hotel is beautiful, very very clean with a lovely ambience and extremely helpful staff. The rooms we stayed in were rooms 1 and 2, both were beautifully decorated, with extremely comfortable beds and had everything you needed including a... More

Not this time though, dinner at Alston House was very enjoyable with good food quality nice presentation and friendly staff.A visit to nearby Nenthead on the second night of my stay unearthed a lovely...

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

Stayed here with friends for one night on Travelzoo vouchers. Lovely quaint rooms, which were very clean and comfortable. The food was really lovely, well cooked, presented and good portions. The restaurant was very relaxing and Christmasy. Great service too. I would have given it 5 stars, but the girl who checked us in was more interested in having our... More
