There was good and not so good on my overnight stay going north. The welcome was warm and the room was very clean (most important) but the main radiator did not work and the small electric one that remained on throughout, was less effective than a toaster. The meal I had was very good, and the service was friendly and... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this Inn. The room was small, but adequate, with a nice comfy bed and a nice bathroom. My one complaint was the music coming from what I think was the kitchen area until nearly midnight both nights, but it was not that bad. The breakfast included was standard fare and the dinners at the restaurant... More

A good basic hotel with comfortable bed.Julie and Clive were very hospitable with hearty breakfasts and the biggest main meals we have seen. Bit of a nuisance that you can't check in before 4pm. Good value for money. A relaxing stay in a lovely little town very central to Carlisle, Hadrians Wall and the Lake District.

We booked a short break here, taking advantage of an Amazon deal for two nights' b&b with dinner and wine on the first night. Our welcome was warm and friendly, we were shown our room at once, and we were given plenty of information about mealtimes, facilities etc. Our evening meal was really good - the quality and freshness of...

The pub is situated in a lovely location. The bedroom was small and needed updating but the bed was very comfortable and everything was clean. The bathroom for sole use of our room was along the hall. When booking I was led to blieve this was the only room available which clearly was not the case as only one other... More
