We stayed in 2 rooms for one night with friends. Upon arrival the owner was very helpful with our car parking. 10 minutes walk from the city centre, nice eating places nearby. Both rooms were lovely and clean with lots of little extra touches which made our stay more enjoyable. Next time we're visiting Carlisle we'll definitely stay there again!

Stayed here overnight with my family en route to Cornwall and what a beautiful Guest House it was. The bedrooms were very comfortable and clean and although the single room had shared facilities this was not a problem as we were away so early the next morning. The family room was fantastic and very spacious so all six of us... More

Stayed here overnight as a couple, my sister and husband and neice were in the family room and my mum had a single room. Rooms were lovely and clean, really nice toiletries and robes too. Nice selection of teas and coffees. In the family room there was a foot spa. Can't comment on the breakfast as we were away too... More

Stayed in room 5 for one night. The welcome to the Cartref was lovely. The room was spotless and the little homely touches to the whole property were just spot on. We would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was amazing too. The B&B is perfectly situated for a walk into town or a visit to the Sands Centre. We were... More

We booked this B&B for a Saturday, it is situated in the city centre just along the road from the shopping centre and about 1 mile from the station, the B&B is lovely from the moment you enter the hallway, we were greeted by friendly and courteous lady who showed us to our room, we were on the top floor...

Nice beds enjoyed the extras, treats, water, juice and Melanie asked if we needed anything and my daughter really wanted milk and she brought a big glass, so nice. It had shampoos and lotions. Our room overlooked a... More

This is a very nice B&B. We were greeted by a lovely woman and a warm welcome. Our room, a bit small, had everything we needed. I was taking part in a race, so had to be up at 4am and didn't get to try the breakfast! There was only 2 points which stopped me giving 5 stars, the fan... More

Stayed here over night inbetween stops. We arrived after a long journey and quite late, but the lady who greeted us was lovely and warming. She showed us up to our en suite room and it was lovely. It was a beautifully decorated room with the most comfortable beds. There were nice little touches like coffee, biscuits, muffins, perfume and... More

A very welcoming host! We had a large luxurious room with lots of complimentary goodies and toiletries. Plenty of storage/hanging space and a lovely comfy bed. Breakfast was fantastic with cereals, sliced fresh fruit, yoghurt and juices etc, and a hot breakfast cooked to order. Nothings seems too much trouble! Parking is just around the corner and free with a... More
