We stayed here for two nights while walking part of the South Tyne Trail. From the moment we arrived all of the staff we met were really friendly. Our room was nice and large with a very good bathroom. The wifi was a bit hit-and-miss in our room, but fine in the rest of the hotel. We ate in the... More

Burger OK, pub average scampi and awful lasagne tasted like cooked in Heinz tomato soup found it hard to find the minced beef, Staff and service were fine. Cafe setting at restaurant price. Disappointing end to a family day out after visiting and riding the train at Alston.

Recently stayed here whilst cycling the coast to coast. Hotel was really nice and the staff were great, keeping our bikes stored for us all over night. The restaurant food was really good and just what we needed after cycling 80 miles. Couldn't ask for much more really. Great value for money (with breakfast included), would definitely recommend Alston House.

A friendly welcome on arrival, excellent parking for a start. Well appointed room and recently refurbished bathroom were as described on the website. The overall hotel is an old, quaint building but modern at the same time where needed. The bar and restaurant are atmospheric and roomy. The food was excellent and accompanied again by friendly service. Some decent ales... More

We had a large and comfortable room and very modern shower/tub. Wifi worked well. The restaurant was decent and convenient. There is a large Spa supermarket next door that opens at 6 am is useful for walkers. Very convenient for the Pennine Way.

Great hotel in in great location. My room had everything needed for a very comfortable stay and was very clean. Don't forget to visit the restaurant as the food is excellent! Hotel has a lovely garden and we took advantage of siting in the evening sun enjoying a pint from the well stocked bar. Highly recommended!
