I stayed overnight at the Four Alls when I spent a weekend paddling on the River Tees. I was tired out when I got to pub, having been up since 6am, so all I want from a B&B is a place to relax until supper, a hot shower and a comfortable, restful place to sleep. It's easy for a B&B...

We dined in the pub in the evening and had an excellent meal which was very tasty and had excellent portion sizes, I could genuinely not fault anything if I tried....

This Hotel is very clean and situated in a lovely little village we stayed there whilst attending a wedding in Headlam Hall. We found it to be more like Bed & Breakfast than a Hotel but nevertheless it was adequate for our needs. We found the Breakfast times were a little rigid especially after a late night at the Wedding...

We'd booked in at The Four Alls for B'n B in order to attend a local event. When we arrived to check in at 2.00pm we were told that the bar was closed.

Thank you for your observations and comments - your welcoming committee was my mother who has confused some of our new ways of working. We own and run the business ourselves with no employees and our check in time is normally set at 4pm to allow us to do other things we need to do - we had prepared your...
