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

Always a warm welcome here - wide range of rooms and with very good breakfasts. Close to station and town with parking on site. Not the Ritz but worth a visit - amazing value but get a room at the back if possible.

I am told Joseph and Mary were offered this particular room at the County Hotel, but having tested the mattress they immediately opted to sleep in the stable instead. The rest is history. I lie on said mattress and look up the ceiling of this tiny room. The lampshade was clearly used as target practice by a disgruntled occupant back... More

County Hotel is class and nobody can handle the awsomeness so they just rate it poor. This is the place where dreams are made, breakfast is amazing and the corridors are really easy to navigate. Lift works as smooth as olivier girouds finishes. If you want a bad hotel go to the Travelodge, I love the County Hotel. FFFRRRRREEEEEDDOOOOMMMMMMM!!!!

The location of this once grand hotel is perfect, about 100 metres from the station and 5 minutes from the main shopping centre and Cathedral. We had a lovely large room with a comfortable bed and a clean and functional bathroom. The view from our room was nothing to write home about but be honest how long do people spend... More

This hotel has seen better days but my room was clean, bright and with a huge comfortable bed. Bathroom was tired but functional. I arrived quite late and planned to eat in the hotel but the menu choices were uninspiring. There is however a great chippie nearby, so I had a takeaway. I've seen many of these once lovely old...

Avoid the disgusting County Hotel in Carlisle. I arrived there today, checked in and immediately checked out again. It was absolutely awful. The carpets are filthy, the room was the size of a show box, the bed frankly had seen better days and the television was something from my grand-parents era.... I do not understand how this hotel can market... More

Location wise perfect from the train station arrived to the hotel checked in, was given a wifi password (which didn’t work). Started my way to my room up the stairs where the carpet was thread bare, interesting start. Got to the room simple, bed,... More

It's in the centre of Carlisle, literally a stones throw away from the train station, which was the main reason we booked here. The receptionist wasn't very welcoming and didn't seem interested in her work so we needed to ask about everything because she wouldn't have told us anything. Our room smelled like faeces when we walked in and we... More
