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...

We had a lovely warm welcome to our lovely room which had absolutely everything in it, drinks, fruit sweets etc. The breakfast was lovely can not fault it in any way and will definitely recommend it and return when we are in the area.

Spent one brief night, the room felt luxurious, we had room 5. It was a triple suite, a double and one single. 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

Had an enjoyable stay here at this B and B. As soon as I arrived after my long delays I was greeted by the owner. She was very friendly and helpful. I stayed in the single room and the room was great perfect for just getting my head down for a sleep. Breakfast was really delicious as well. I would... More

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
