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

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
