    2/5 Poor

    Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
    We didn’t actually stay at this hotel. It was shabby downstairs, and little attention seemed to be given to COVID precautions. The room was slightly better than downstairs, but the curtains were hanging off the rail, the wooden toilet seat had some damage and wouldn’t have been hygienic. To my mind if a hotel can’t be bothered to fix a simple thing like broken curtain hooks, or a worn toilet seat, it does not give guests confidence that it is doing its utmost to keep people safe in these trying times. The bed was large and looked fine, but we didn’t stay to lay our heads there.

    Great way to end the Pennine Way
    An iconic place to stay at the end of the Pennine Way. Very friendly service. Hot shower, comfy bed and big breakfast - what else can you need!

    The hotel is steeped in tradition and oozes character. Its the iconic finishing point of the Pennine way, a 268 mile walk from Edale in Derbyshire finishing at the border Hotel in Kirk Yetholm. The standard of the hotel is 1st class the staff warm and friendly and the food is delicious. Highly recommended
