    Helpful staff, well maintained and colourful gardens. And a great value and tasty evening carvery. Ideal location for exploring Hadrians Wall or visiting the Dark Skies

    Not under the control of the hotel, but this location is not well served by O2 mobile phone coverage, especially in my room at the rear of the building. A shame when an Airwave (Emergency Services) mast is located in the rear car park. Poor O2 signal at the front of the building too, which as an O2 employee, I will report back to the relevant radio planning team.

    Walking on the Hadrian's wall path on a long and tiring day from Chollerford, I could see the Gilsland Spa Hotel from the valley, a mile or so before I arrived in Gilsland. I was aware of the extra kilometre I would have to walk out of the village, in order to get to the Gilsland Spa Hotel, but it was well worth the extra distance. I had ordered a basement room, so I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised to be in a large spacious, airy and light room, which didn't have the view but permitted lots of natural sunlight through the windows. The room facilities were excellent and a nice hot bath revitalised my senses. The food was excellent in terms of value for money and taste and the portions were quite plentiful. A walk around the sublimely beautiful grounds before dusk was well worth the effort and blessed with amazing panoramic views across the valley, the experience was inspirational. Breakfast was at eight o clock, the following day although I was told I could request it earlier if I needed to. Breakfast was excellent too!

    Arrived late at night the man on reception was very helpful and friendly even though he had no record of my booking which was extremely annoying since I had a confirmation email on my phone. He went out of his way to sort out the problem and did eventually find us a room, though this took some 30 minutes. On s

    On arrival after midnight was told that there was no record ofmy booking. I showed the receptionist the confirmation email on my phone. He phoned his manager for advice and after trying several rooms eventually found an empty double for us. The whole process took at least 30 minutes if not longer. I must stress that it wasn't the fault of the receptionist, but the hotels system which seems to be a bit of a shambles. When we eventually got into a room every thing was fine with no more problems.

    The ambiance. An older hotel which does show her wrinkles, but is immaculate, staff pleasant and helpful. Beautiful area to wander in. Pub served excellent dinner and were very accommodating. We enjoyed the overnight stay.

    The location is excellent, overlooking the rolling hills, with a majestic setting atop a hill.

    Uncomfortable bed, the whole hotel needs some refurbishment / updating / investment. The bar and meal area is particularly grim.

    Everything - accommodation, food, staff, entertainment, terrific views all round, great walks, everyone so friendly. It was so relaxing. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed looking up the history of Gilsland Spa we were there because I was born there 1945 and so I was searching for info on my birth it was all so fascinating. Hope to go again in the future for a longer stay .

    Big, airy room. Very clean. Value for money. Food was much better than the hotel info described. Beautiful, extensive grounds. Lovely woodland walks. Will definitely use this hotel again.

    We were a wee bit younger than the average 'bus trip' clientele using the hotel, but we knew this before we booked.

    Staff were fantastic, especially the manager Les. Location was lovely, if you didn't need to be on Hadrians Wall path. Rooms a good size. Good value. Excellent carvery.

    It was further from the Hadrian's Wall path than we expected, which was key for us as we were walking the whole 84 miles and the day we arrived at this hotel was a 22 mile walk anyway, so for this hotel to be further away and up a hill too was not ideal.

    The Gilsland Spa is in a beautiful location and as it was very quiet when I visited I found it very relaxing and excellent value for money. I loved the gardens with views.

    Some areas upstairs are showing wear and tear and the dining room and main bar lack the character that has been maintained in the rest of the hotel.

    The breakfast was very good and the room quiet and clean. The staff were friendly. Hotel location was very good with excellent views of the country.

    We booked a budget room and expected not a very high quality room, but the description should state the room is in the basement with no view. No lift to basement. No comfortable chairs. Slightly musty smell when you went down stairs to the room.

    The buffet breakfast was probably the best I've ever had. All of the staff were incredibly friendly. Beautiful location and grounds. Although the furniture and carpets were dated, cleanliness was exceptional. Good strong shower and lovely hot water. £65 for two nights b&b - what a steal!

    The midges! (outside)

    I only stopped overnight so can't comment on food,etc. it was a grand old building and the staff were superb. My room was perfect and the views outstanding. A real gem.

    Nothing really, just didn't get why it was so quiet. At the price and in the location, I'd have expected it to be rammed. I really liked it and would hope to visit again at dome point .

    Location and building was beautiful. Food was good and plentiful.

    This hotel caters for elderly coach parties and 'shindigs'. Consequently if you are under 75 you are positively youthful. There is a smell and feel of a care home about it. That said for a one night sleep over it was good value.
