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!

Called in for Sunday Dinner while on a day out. The food and staff were very friendly and helpful. Our dog was allowed in while we had our meal and they catered for our daughter which needs gluten free food. Would highly recommend if in the area. Food 5 star and at a reasonable price.

Stopped to eat in the cafe on the way through Alston. The food was good and tasty but why serve it in a wooden crate on a piece of paper? The depth of the crate made it difficult to eat the salad. Why is everywhere serving plates on bits of wood or slate or in a box? What's wrong with... More
