Stayed here on a Groupon deal for two nights this month. We were allocated room 8 which was OK but was three flights up with no lift and overlooked a flat roof on one side and the river at the front. Beds were comfy and the bedroom itself was fine with flat screed telly, DVD player, CD Player and Ipod player. However the real let down was the bathroom. Very small and very low water pressure. Really struggled to have a shower as they pressure was so poor. We only stayed bed and breakfast so cannot comment on the evening meal which was very expensive at £47 per head. The breakfast was very served rather than a buffet and was lovely the first morning but the second morning I had an cheese, mushroom and ham omelette and was really ill with it. I only just made it back to the room were I was very sick. As we had to be out of the room by 11.00 we struggled to pack but managed to leave on time. I am pretty sure it was the omelette, maybe the ingredients as my husband had a plain one and he was fine. As no-one was around downstairs when we left we left the key on the reception desk and set off home.
If you want to be able to have a Shower avoid Room 8.
There are some lovely walks from the hotel along the river - One way to Alston and the opposite way to the nearest pub where we ate the first night. Good meal at the Swan in Alston also
