Now I hesitate in posting this review for purely selfish reasons, over the past 3-4 years I have enjoyed staying at the Haughton Arms and if it becomes too popular it will become more difficult for me to book in to the hotel. The bar serves great beer, and Reuben's restaurant serves delicious Indian food which I look forward to... More

The staff at the Haughton Arms at Alford offer a warm welcome, lovely clean, comfortable rooms and great food in the evening and for breakfast. Sheila's porridge is a winner! The dining room has an interesting display of musical instruments and art work. I work regularly in Alford and always enjoy the peaceful, friendly stay at this hotel.

I booked this hotel along with others for attending a wedding in Alford. The other reviews on here made me a bit wary but I was pleasantly surprised. Looks like a very traditional country hotel from the outside but very clean and well maintained grounds and car park. I was greeted at reception and shown to my room politely and... More

The bar and beer garden were fine in the sun, the room was ok but breakfast service was terrible. The waitress had all the charm of a traffic warden, seemingly incapable of understanding that my wife and I wanted a table for two.. Breakfast was only served from 9 to 9.30 but luckily someone hoovering outside our room at 0845... More

We went with family for a couple of drinks and to have an Indian meal. The bar is very spacious and it appears is mainly frequented by regulars. For real ale drinkers it has Timothy Taylor Landlord. Staff are extremely friendly and the hotel boasts an Indian restaurant called Reuben's. We had a takeaway but the restaurant itself is very... More

Really a great and hearty breakfast. We tried the Indian food for dinner and that was exceptional.. even better than you get in London. Would have given it 5/5 but wifi did not work in the room, you had to go outside of the room for it to work.

We stayed at the Haughton as part of a trip with my husband's elderly father who wanted to return to his birthplace of Alford. This was the only place to stay in the village so pretty much had the monopoly. The rooms were OK, clean and comfortable and breakfast was very nice. We thought a double at £100 per night... More

We enjoyed a meal in the Indian restaurant at the Haughton hotel in Alford earlier this week. The meal was great and the surroundings were very pleasant. Overall the food was pretty good value although the drinks were a little expensive. I started with the chicken and Brie pakoras which were just excellent, I would have happily eaten these as... More
