I went with a group of friends for my birthday. The food was fantastic and the bar area wonderful. My friend had booked a beautiful room for us with a massive jacuzzi and a fantastic sound system! It was beautifully decorated and so stylish. And then we had a lovely meal and the staff surprised me with a birthday cake... More

We went this evening with our two friends the service was very good and the staff very pleasant the food was good but a little bit expensive. Will probably not go again due to the portion size as myself and my male friend like slightly bigger portion sizes

We have been meaning to go to the 'Alma' for many months since it was recommended by a friend. Well worth the wait and I would go as far to say as it was one of the best meals we have had in a long time. It was a fair drive to get there but well worth it. A lovely... More

Excellent hotel just a couple of miles intro the countryside from Colne. Exceptional rooms with everything you could possibly need even including an umbrella and quality espresso machine. Front desk could not be more helpful too with an excellent restaurant too. Freshly cooked breakfast with a log fire.

Excellent location fantastic service and the food was out of this world. We sat in the conservatory and we're greeted by Doug and Diane who we found to be very helpful and they made every effort to ensure our visit was perfect. The food was exceptional. Five star thx guys. Definitely coming back.

We were advised to try The Alma by our son and daughter-in-law so after a spell shopping in Boundary Mill we decamped to this lovely old inn in the country. We were allocated a room - actually the bridal suite - which, amongst all the normal necessities, offered a jacuzzi bath which would surely accommodate a football team! We enjoyed... More
