Very obliging staff, a most comfortable and quiet en-suite room, I stayed in for dinner which was very good and an equally full English breakfast in the morning. The hotel is strategically placed for guests wishing to catch the local bus which will transport you to the outside world.

We used it as a halfway stop on the coast to coast cycle route and its location is perfect. Everything was immaculate and beautifully furnished. Staff were exceptional. Really looked after us, locked up bikes safely and even washed all kit for a fiver before breakfast next day! Bar was great with lovely IPAs and food in restaurant was faultless.... More

Room was OK - nice and clean and plenty of space but TV was diddy small and Wi-Fi didn't work in the room. The fact that there was three different Wi-Fi codes in there didn't help but even when I worked out the... More

Hotel was average, owners not helpful when booking, however the staff were first class and the food in the restaurant was top notch. Extremely helpful staff went through the menu so no disappointments there and good choice on the specials board. The only other minor point is that the bar staff did know what laphroaig was. I had to assist.

This place was quite unassuming from the outside and initially quite similar on the inside. The menu looked quite "pubby" on first reading. However the quality was superb, the presentation impeccable and the service friendly and attentive. A real find!

After a day of cycling, the staff at Alston House provided a top class place to stay. There was a safe place for bikes, superb spacious en suite bedroom with a roll top bath, a fabulous roast evening meal followed by peaceful night's sleep on a wonderful, double bed. Breakfast was delicious. The staff are very friendly and helpful

Penrith to Hexham via Alston is a beautiful route avoiding the A69 and Alston House proved an excellent choice for a lunch break. Convenient location with parking, large airy rooms, friendly attentive staff, and best of all a great menu selection with a variety not usually offered at lunch. We had the vegetarian platter - delicious with several small dishes... More

Day 12 of Pennine Way walk (S to N). An easy hotel to find from the PW. Helpful staff. Excellent room, with decent bed, clean and tidy. Wonderful bathroom, with glorious bath that was well appreciated after a long day's walk. I can't remember any negatives about the room, at all. Quiet and enjoyable. WiFi was good and free.

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
