Stayed there while doing the Coast to Coast challenge. Room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The management was more than willing to lock up the bicycles in the hotel for security. Will definitely go back to stay and explore the surroundings.

Stopped here on the coast to coast. Owners very accommodating offer secure bike storage and allowing us to drop a bag early and pick it up a few days later. The food was great, dinner was good and hearty and breakfast was very good.

We stayed here to attend a function and were very pleased with this comfortable accommodation. The hotel is located in Alston itself, surrounded by beautiful scenery and only 10 mins drive from the well known Hartside Pass with its amazing views on a clear day. Good walks nearby. The hotel staff were friendly and we were given a warm greeting...

Stayed here on the way to Newcastle. Felt welcoming from putting first foot in the door. Room was huge, very clean and well equipped. Restaurant menu looked uninspiring on paper but OUTSTANDING in appearance, taste , value and enjoyment. Breakfast was a great choice and cooked perfectly. Every member of staff was polite, helpful and knowledgeable. Completely relaxing, very enjoyable...

Arrived at Alston House on Friday evening, very warm welcome from the host. The room was enormous and well equipped e.g. teas, coffees, kettle, toiletries, hair dryer etc. Unfortunately, it was very wet and windy outside and the rain was coming in through one of the windows in our room, but there was nothing much that could be done apart...

We stayed with two of our small dogs for a couple of nights. The hotel itself is really nice and we had a spacious and spotlessly clean room, which had a view over the other side of the valley. We ate in on one night and I thought the menu was really nice and reasonably priced too. The food was...
