The Carlisle Tourist Office found me a room at this 4 star family run property, for which I'm very grateful as I had not booked a room before arriving. Friendly and personable owner Melanie made me feel very welcome. As her daughter was having a birthday party my first night and was concerned about it disturbing me, she offered me... More

Well situated near the centre of Carlisle, but for walkers doing Hadrians' Wall (Mickledore Holidays) it was a unfortunately a very noisy front room above the traffic. Well appointed room with big comfortable bed, but complicated en-suite. Otherwise the excelent breakfast and freindly service made up for the noisy room! J&M 8 Jul 12

The property is centrally placed in the city - but this gave it's only drawback - there was a lot of traffic noise late night and early morning! The twin bedroom was... More

I recently walked Hadrian's Wall with a friend and this was the accommodation for our 5th night. It was wonderful. We may have stayed in the same room as the previous reviewer, as it faced the street, but didn't have any of their problems with noise. Perhaps there was a hen/stag party or some other "one off" that spoiled their... More

The only disappointing stay on our trek along Hadrian's Wall. Our room overlooked the main road into Carlisle and the traffic noise was horrendous. Triple glazing would have helped but all we had was leaky single panes. Through the evening and into the night there was tremendous noise of shouting and banging inside the guest house. Perhaps this place is... More
