I stayed at the March Bank Hotel for 1 night on the 5th June 2011. I had choosen to stay there for no other reason than the location it is in but will certainly stay for longer in future.
From beginning to end I found the staff friendly ,welcoming and they went out of their way to be helpful and the standards of service would put most so-called "big name" hotels to shame.
The hotel has stunning views over the Esk valley and is ideally situated on the border of Scotland and England combining in my opinion the best standards of service of both countries. The evening meal and choice of menu available were exceptional as was the breakfast .The room was spotlessly clean ,decorated to a high standard and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel as a must stay!
