This was our second visit here and once again we had a wonderful time. Lovely room with beautiful views and our hosts Carol and Michael could not do enough for you. The food is amazing and we cannot wait to come back again. Thank you.

Paid £119 for two nights two people and a dog including breakfast. Wowcher was £89, dog £20 and £10 surcharge which we weren't aware of at the time but was fine and well worth the money. Do eat at the restaurant. Lovely home made food and big portions. Good value for money. Beautiful village for walking. Lots of information provided...

My partner spent the past weekend here after a hectic few weeks. Alston is a very quiet location that may not appeal to everyone but it was what we needed. The hotel was small and well run. The staff were always ready to help and most importantly weren't 'in your face' and allowed us to simply chill in the cafe...
