Last minute decision to book here, and so glad we did. Our room was large and comfortable (a bit tired) and when the hot water didn't work they immediately gave us the key to use another room. The surroundings are lovely and peaceful and it's a really nice walk along the river into Alston. We had a half-price deal for accommodation and to be honest if we'd paid full price we'd have been disappointed. But the food was the star of the show, probably the best we've ever had. I've eaten in Michelin star places which weren't as good. We stayed there over a month ago and I still think about the kedgeree for breakfast! Although they didn't have kippers either morning, and my husband's eggs florentine were distinctly over-cooked the second morning. The petits fours with coffee were beautiful, and probably the bargain of the year. Service, although friendly, could be a little slicker. The hotel is halfway on a journey we make often so we'd definitely stay again, esp as we know about the gourmet deals which we'll look out for!
