We have just had a very pleasant weekend at this guesthouse and would recommend it to anyone. We were made very welcome by Sheila and Don, a nice pleasant couple who go out of their way to make your stay a good one. An excellent breakfast was provided and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, top class for... More

What a lovely couple running this very friendly and homely guest house, made to feel welcome from the start. Just a short walk from Carlisle city centre and Hadrian's wall walk, an ideal base or stopover. Quite possibly the best ever shower, any more pressure and I would have lost skin! Breakfast was excellent, the starter of fruit salad was... More

A warm welcome awaits guests at No. 1, where Sheila & Don keep a very comfortable and friendly house. Location is ideal, just beyond the city centre which is great because you'll need the walk after the very hearty breakfast! Local amenities include an excellent Indian restaurant, two supermarkets, a pub and other stores. Just down the road is Sands... More

My friend and I booked for one night and were given a room each because the twin was booked.We were nicely surprised by the comfortable spotless rooms and Sheila was very friendly. She gave us a permit to park for two days which enabled us to walk into town next day to explore.There are a few pubs nearby but we... More

I booked into "No 1 Guest House" for 3 nights. It lives up to its name as “No 1”. It is a 20 minute walk into town, or there is a bus stop across the road. There are a number of take-away shops and restaurants within metres. On arrival, I was met at the door by my host, Sheila ,... More

Stated one night. Due car rental issues we ended up arriving three hours late. We arrived at midnight. They stayed up for us. Being empathetic to our car problems. They made sure that we were settled in. Breakfast was pleasant, waiting on us all the time. Can recommend.

My Mum, the wife and I were invited to a family wedding party and needed somewhere to stay for one night in Carlisle. We picked the No 1 Guest House as it was in the same postcode as the party and because they did not charge a single supplement. There was a friendly welcome from Sheila on our arrival. She... More

We arrived an hour late following hold-ups on the M6. Sheila had already called us earlier in the evening to make sure we were ok as she knew we had a long journey, she assured us our late arrival was not a problem. The room was spotless, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious and Sheila and her husband were... More

I got to the No. 1 late having had a long days cycle across the Lake District, as part of a Land's End to John o'Groats trip. I was greeted by Sheila who warned me the local pub (opposite) shut at 11. My room and en-suite bathroom were very clean and in good order. The breakfast was excellent and included... More
