Alveston House's historic past

Built in 1797 the hotel’s elegant period building has had an interesting past. Originally built as a private family home over 200 years ago, there is still a true feeling of family atmosphere within the hotel. It has also been a school for children with learning disabilities and later, an academy for soldiers. The hotel was also owned by a famous aeroplane designer, Captain Frank Barnwell, who built and flew the first aircraft in Scotland in 1910. He then went on to be chief engineer at British Aerospace.

This was one of the best experiences I have ever had. This was a great hotel with a lovely atmosphere, very clean, extremely friendly staff. The reception staff couldn’t do anymore to help and we were escorted to the rooms, which was a nice touch. The rooms were exceptionally clean and well maintained. We had a meal that was served on time and was of a great standard. I would definitely go back to this hotel and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Trip Advisor Review - November 2016

The Restaurant is the jewel in the crown

My wife and I stopped here for one night on the 4th October whilst on a business road trip. The staff were extremely friendly, the room large and well equipped, clean, tidy etc. as you would expect. The restaurant is the jewel in the crown. Carriages restaurant has won AA rosettes every year since 2009 and you can taste why … Once again the waiting staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. The food was exceptional and neither one of us could fault it. In fact, I would go so far as to say that I haven’t had a better starter for many years. My wife and I both enjoyed our main course too and shared a delightful dessert. We shall be organising a return trip with friends and family very soon. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
