this is a beautiful 'character' building located close (5 mins walk) to Carlisle's town centre and associated amenities. It is beautifully decorated and maintained and puts many hotel chains to shame. The owner is friendly, welcoming and informative and her pride in the property is very evident. The inclusive breakfast has a wide variety and, like this lovely accommodation overall,... More

We were given the Attic room No.8. Velux window therefore no view. Twin room but should've been a single occupancy. Very little room around the beds. Tea tray on top of the chest or drawers with no room to put anything down, nowhere to put your case apart from on top of the bed. The room itself was very cold... More

Booking on-line always involves an element of ^have I picked the best possible option?" about it. Here we knew we had got it right, from the moment we were welcomed inside. We were offered a free upgrade to a larger room having actually booked a small one. (We didn't need the upgrade, but really appreciated the offer!) A very attractively... More

Myself and two friends stayed at this b&b last night after visiting the Lakes District and we were so impressed by the welcome and the room. The host was extremely friendly and helpful and catered to every potential need that you could think of the suite. None of us would hesitate staying there again and would highly recommend it.

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

Stayed one night whilst walking Hadrian's Wall. Friendly young couple run this average sized Guest house, they were both very helpful with our requests. Their rates were reasonable. 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
