“excellent accommodation in a superb location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2011

This 'hotel' is more of a pub/restaurant with rooms. The rooms are in an adjacent building and this means any noise from the pub is minimised. The rooms themselves are very tastefully done, a blend of period and contemporary decor. The restaurant serves very good food, well above average for a pub. There is excellent walking of all grades from the door of the hotel and it is on Wainright's Coast to Coast route. The staff are friendly the only niggle being when we were there the place was closed in the afternoon meaning that check in then can be problematic. But don't let this put you off. We would return ... and have done once already.

Arrived to an empty pub, no lights on, no one to check in with. Rang the accommodation phone went to answer machine. Visited a nearby pub to see if they could enlighten us as to when to expect someone. Apparently this often happens and on occasions some people have had to wait up to 3 hours. We waited 45 minutes and meanwhile checked out our room which was open. There was a terrible smell of rotton eggs/blocked drains. When the manageress arrived eventually she agreed that someone should have been there for us, but said the smell in the room was from a nearby coal fire which was not the case. As we were not feeling that we could enjoy what was planned to be a romantic night away we decided to cancel the night and head off elsewhere. Ended up having a much better time at a much less price. Rooms are expensive for what they are and sadly I feel this place is living on the good reputation it had when former owners had it.

We stayed at the Three Tuns during our Coast to Coat walk and were expecting a bit of a treat. It was more expensive than any of the other B&Bs and Inns we'd used. It turned out to be the most disappointing stay of our coast to coast and not worth the higher price and the extra walking.
We arrived after having walked from Richmond on a real warm and humid day. The woman who appeared to be the manageress asked us how far we'd walked and didn't wait for an answer but immediately showed us up to our room on the second floor of the house next door. It didn't have the bath we'd been told we would have when we booked but was very pleasant. It was really difficult dragging our cases up the steep narrow staircase.
The restaurant was also disappointing. We weren't offered any bread but the starters were very good. We both chose the pork which was so overcooked it was dry and hard. When we mentioned it we were told they would knock some thing off the bill but this didn't happen. Breakfast was very ordinary - cheap sliced white bread for toast, no wholemeal or any other brown offered.
While the whole visit was disappointing it was the attitude of the unpleasant "manageress" that really spoilt it.

Stayed one night on the coast to coast walk in june.

The double room was upstairs in a renovated house purposely built next door. The en suite bathroom was large with bath and WC and very clean with usual toiletries.

The bedroom had a good quality flat screen TV and was clean and furnished to a high good quality standard.

Downstairs was a separate cozy well furnished sitting room privately reserved for guests.

The meal in the restaurant was probably one of the best meals I have ever had, The baked scotish salmon in lobster and whisky sauce was stunning, served with an entree of mixed olives, fresh bread and balsamic dipping oil, and followed by starters of fresh carrot sweet potato and corriander soup.

Service and attention was very friendly and efficient. I will definately make the effort to vist here again
