Our room was clean and comfortable. The evening meal was average but very expensive for what we had. The service was not very good, the lady serving us seemed unable to cope, we asked for a bottle of wine and she brought the wrong one and I'm still waiting for my glass of water!! The bar staff were very friendly,... More

This review is not about the quality of the hotel (room passable, food not so great) but about the atrocious customer service. The hotel charged me for two nights when I only stayed for one and then refused to refund the difference. Long story short: I'd amended the date of my one night stay (well within the timescale to avoid... More

Kept getting food order wrong waitress was distracted when I was trying to order & walked away mid order. I had to follow her to the bar. The food was nice but they need to stick to the menu or tell customers if they change it.

We had planned on booking a room through the tourist information but found it closed when we arrived on a Sunday afternoon. We found the hotel and stopped to see if they had a vacancy. They had 2 rooms to choose from that met our needs and were very happy to let us see both of them before we made... More

This was a real disappointment. The bar staff were friendly, but that was the best bit. We were booked in as walkers, and it was supposed to be dog friendly. After a 17 mile day we were offered no help with luggage - 3 bags each, (might seem a lot, but we also had dogs with us, so this included... More

Brampton is a small town just to the east of Carlisle. We chose to stay here after exploring Hadrian's Wall. The hotel is in the center of Brampton and is very average, this is not a deluxe hotel but the bed was comfortable, the room spacious, the bathroom small - make that very small but quite functional. The hotel has... More

Food was excellent :) popped in on a Sunday afternoon for a meal. Service was excellent. Menu was top class and the prices where competitive. As for what the dishes on the menu where I thought the prices should of been more expensive to what they where actually charging which is always a bonus.

We stayed for 3 nights and found this Inn to be comfortable and friendly. The room was beautiful, clean, a great shower and the bed was so soft. We had the Tiny Tim room, all the rooms are named after characters from A Christmas Carol as Charles Dickens had stayed there. A good choice of breakfast and very tasty. The... More

We only stayed at the Howard Arms one night, but we wish we could have stayed longer! The food was some of the best of our two week trip. The room (Tiny Tim) was very cute and very clean. If you are making a trip to Hadrian's Wall I would recommend staying a night or two here.
