We stayed here for one night on Hogmanay. We were welcomed by Colin who throughout our stay was friendly and helpful. The bar downstairs was lovely, full of locals who we found to also be friendly and welcoming and they helped us enjoy our stay. Karaoke was on throughout the night and we found that to be very entertaining, Food... More

Stayed for one night and found the place to be warm and cosy. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and spotless all round, the staff were really nice and Colin made you feel most welcome. We would definitely recommend this place and wouldn't hesitate going back.

Stayed with children en route south from Inverness. Close to Carlisle and M6 junction. Quiet, comfortable, excellent dinner and breakfast, friendly staff, warm and cosy. Lovely big bath. Would recommend it as a lovely place to stay.

Thanks to Colin and staff for another excellent trip. This is the second year we have visited and would recommend. Locals very friendly. Even though the boiler broke for part of the day. The rooms were warm and cosy. Lovely hot log fires. Food is to die for especially the fillet steak. Will be back with more family next year.

The breakfasts were some of the best we have ever been served - choice of cereals, fresh fruit and fruit juice followed by a very tasty full... More

Only 7 miles from Carlisle (we visited there on the first day and were amazed at the size of the place, there was a European market on and it was so Christmassy! Loving our stay... More

We stayed here after booking it for a 3 night groupon special. As it was for our minimoon we upgraded to the superior room. On the whole it was a very lovely place to stay. The room was spotlessly clean, the staff friendly and polite. The only downside as such was that we booked to stay on the Monday. We... More
