5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I stayed here whilst doing the C2C. Its perfectly located for this and the staff were really accommodating and even put my bike in the basement so it was safe.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Stayed overnight with my dog. Spacious and comfortable room, with en-suite. Very clean, though not the most modern furnishings. Could have done with a shaving mirror above the bathroom basin. Evening meal was Ok - typical pub grub with large portions. Service was very friendly and helpful, and the beer was good. Had to park 10mm away in public car park. Good for travellers on a budget.

C2C stop over
The hosts at the Cumberland Inn were friendly and helped with securely storing our bikes, as part of our C2C trip. Both rooms were clean, but were showing damp & water damage in the bedrooms & bathrooms and so could do with some TLC. Toiletries were provided which is always handy on a trip like this when you need to keep weight down. I didnt have any of the beer, but it was a popular choice with the other guests with lots of local options. There is a nice terrace to sit out on with views across the fields. Alston itself is nice wirh a cafe and Co-op if you require supplies.

Wonderful food and service. Unfortunately the property could do with modernising which lets it down

The Cumberland was very friendly and the off road parking very useful in Alston - it is quite a small town and other accommodation in the town lack the option of parking. Would definitely use again.
