Stayed last weekend. Never again. The place is tired out. The carpets are filthy and stained in all the areas I saw. Twin room with rock hard beds. Clean bedding. The front bedrooms overlook the Main Street for the revellers and the pubs are BUSY. DONT EXPECT ANY SLEEP ! The bathroom was basic but a bath was out of... More

I have stayed here twice now. Fours years apart exactly. Both times I felt the staff were the best thing about the place. It's a very old building that is desperate for a makeover. I had s twin room which was small, beds were comfortable but the carpets in the room are threadbare, there is water damage on the walls... More

Dilapidated and dirty..... The carpets are dirty the bathroom floor is sticky and the only way to run a bath is to detach the shower head as the tap is broken. Missing skirting boards and frayed curtains. The tv has 3 static covered channels. You get all of this for the knock down price of £60 for one person for... More

All I could hear all night was the sound of drunks shouting and swearing outside. That, and the very squeaky floorboards upstairs. Didn't get to sleep till about 2am when things finally began to quieten down. Room was pretty grubby as well, especially the bathroom. Never again.

It was comfortable and friendly staff were really helpful. Considering it was right on botchergate it was peaceful enough to stay in. However the bathroom facilities could do with updating and the windows would not stay open. I shared a twin room with a friend and the heating came on through the nite, mid may it is not needed. Other... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend. We arrived very late, and the night porter checked us in. He was friendly and chatty, making us feel very welcome. I was in my wheelchair and he advised that there was a wheelchair friendly room available if I would prefer it. Unfortunately it was twin beds, so we asked for... More

We were happily welcomed with open arms to the county hotel on the Easter Sunday, and even though we had hassle sorting out the rooms we had booked, the staff really proved their worth by helping us sort out this mess. Upon entering the rooms it was as if they were ready for royalty. After we had come back from... More

Right in the centre of Carlisle on the main pub / clubbing street so not ideal if you want a quiet night especially on a Saturday. However, our room at the back of the hotel was fairly quiet. Rooms are comfortable if a little old fashioned. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was satisfactory. Free parking for residents

I stayed here last night on business, and would much rather stay somewhere like this than the premier inn and travelodges I usually stay in. Why? The service was excellent- all the staff were friendly, helpful and available- where so often they are hidden at other budget hotels. Yes, the decor is a bit tired, but the room was clean... More

I stayed in the biggest room imaginable. Really huge, but so big, it felt under furnished, there was a sofa in the middle of the room. The bathroom was past its best as was much of the hotel, it is in real need of an upgrade. The staff were great, really friendly and personable, there was a mistake with the... More
