Just arrived home after spending 3 nights DBB at this hotel. Very disappointing. The whole hotel is in great need of upgrading as very shabby and the staff look as if they don't want to be there either and I can't blame them at all as I think I would be depressed going to work there every day. The food... More

My brother had his wedding here,and although I can't knock the service of the sit down meal as the staff were really lovely and friendly and couldn't do enough for us, the rest of the stay was just awful! The reception staff were rude. The rooms were the scruffiest, grubbiest rooms I have ever stayed in! Like a throwback from... More

Despite some poor reviews we went ahead and booked as it was local to where we were going. The hotel is located in not the best area of Carlisle but a very regular bus service available if needed, We arrived early but as there was a room ready we were given this one straight away. Very friendly staff on reception,... More

Stayed overnight on Saturday as a break of journey on a coach holiday returning from Ullapool. We were the second coach to arrive and therefore were allocated a dinner sitting of 1930. At 2000h the starters were just beginning to arrive and the slow service continued with desserts being served after 2100h. I had a tasteless watery melon starter with... More

This was such a dump in an awful location. The wallpaper was peeling off of the wall in our room and the ceiling plaster was coming down!!! The pool was small and although nice, the room also needed a good coat of paint which was also peeling. The changing room was freezing. I would NEVER stay there again. We had... More

Arriving at the swallow is like arriving at a hospital A&E.. It is probably the worst entrance to a hotel that I have ever encountered. We stayed here for one night, as part of a shearings coach tour and quite frankly it is pretty terrible. The dinner that they served us was all but inedible, served with couldn't care attitude....
