      Breakfast was first class and my dog was made very welcome which is not always the case.

      Only that we didnt get the chance to eat in the restaurant at night as we were meeting friends in Alston.

      Friendly staff in a charming hotel in delightful setting. Excellent room with a very comfortable super king size bed. Super tasty breakfast!

      The bedroom was bright, well decorated and very clean with all the facilities you would expect, the bed was very comfortable. The public areas were also very wellcoming and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, freshly cooked and a generous portion.

      The plumbing did seem to be rather noisy when other guests were using the shower ect. maybe because it was a grand country house and not a purpose built hotel.

      The staff were very friendly - we were greeted at the door! Treated like royalty throughout the the whole of our stay! The hotel itself is really nice - feels very luxurious, and is in a very tucked away part of the world - the ideal place to 'get away from it all'.

      This is not a moan about the hotel - more the booking itself - we booked a 'superior room' through Booked.net for one night for £78b&b, which seemed a real bargain! We had decided that we would have our evening dinner at the hotel, as it was too far to go anywhere else, and why would we when it was so lovely! Then we saw that dinner cost £44.50 each, which was really worth it, and we happily paid. However, I glanced at the tariff list in the information booklet in our room, which stated that the tariff for the superior room for dinner, bed and breakfast was £130, so we had paid the £78 plus £90 for the exact same thing...!! So if you're going to book here, do it as dinner, bed and breakfast direct with the hotel if necessary!

      Quiet, relaxed

      Dining room too quiet: with so few diners, backgrund music would be a help as it was difficult to converse when all conversation could be overheard

      The hotel is in a beautiful setting and retains a very comfortable relaxing atmosphere

      A very, very quiet comfortable hotel. It is in a nice setting and the staff were friendly. The breakfasts were very good both quality and choice.

      We were disapointed with the evening meal costs. Although I am sure the food was very good going by the breakfast standard it was a set price for a four course meal at £46.50 and an extra £2.50 for coffee. It would have been far better to have each choice individually priced so that you could choose to have one or two courses either for the cost implications or because you did not want to eat that much food. Very few customers were eating in so it would be to the hotels advantage, and has no effect on the hotels costs or the chefs workload.

      Quality of food was excellent but expensive. Warm and friendly welcome from staff. Quiet and peaceful location.

      Superior room required some TLC. Avoid room 14, no view except kitchen roof and extractor fans are very noisy. Would not go back and certainly wouldn't pay normal tariff price.

      Very good breakfast.

      The room described as Superior was anything but.

      Secluded location

      Shower did not work, and the shower head was very dirty. room was ok but quite small.

      i liked the grounds in which the hotel was situated,with the river running right beside the garden area.

      i thought it lacked the personal touches that other places i have stayed at had and i purched a king size room which simply had two single beds pushed together and felt very misslead by the picture i saw when booking the room.
