Frankly, it was booked for me by a pal. Maybe ex-pal. Booking dot com was £49 a night, no breakfast. Booking direct gets you breakfast. I wouldn't have eaten there though (Rufus across road, breakfast £2.99 + 99p coffee, free refills till 2 pm...but I digress) "Tired" doesn't fit the bill, It's worn out. Yes, there's free parking. Yes it's... More

I made the mistake of staying here as it was a regular haunt of my colleagues. Their reasons for staying can only be the price (very cheap), location (centre of town), and free parking (self explanatory) - but to be honest the old Regent Palace Hotel in Piccadilly was nicer than this place and that was the definition of a...

Cracking location at the end of Botchergate and a really good breakfast but the hotel needs to be updated. Rooms were clean but very basic with a tiny wardrobe. Heating was on full in every room (we were in a party of about 16) and we all complained. Had to open Windows but location meant it was so loud. Bar... More

This hotel was fine for me. Central location staff were friendly. Definitely worth staying here. If you are coming for a night or a weekend to Carlisle then this hotel is ideal for you. Only thing I would say is that you don t get breakfast you have to pay extra for that

A well appointed hotel in Carlisle. The room was very large and spacious, the staff were all very accommodating. The night porter opened up the bar just for my wife and I to have a nightcap. The breakfast good and was reasonable at £7.5

First impressions were a good sized room with lovely views of the castle walls if a bit dated and in need of TLC We realised straight off that there were bars etc near the hotel and thought might get some noise and we like to go out for a few anyway but didn't realise how bad it would be on...

Stayed at this hotel Friday and Saturday night. Having read comments on Trip Advisor was unsure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. The location was perfect - city centre - so handy for shopping and site seeing. The room was huge and well furnished. The bed was massive and comfortable. The communal areas as well as the bedroom were... More
