I really cannot praise this B&B enough! The whole place is smart, clean and very comfortable. The welcome from Charlotte & Tony was wonderful - nothing seems to be too much trouble, and all at a very reasonable price! The breakfast was quick, early and very satisfying. The room was spacious, very clean and well equipped. There was even a digital clock by the bed so I would not have to overlay! Anyone staying overnight in Carlisle could not wish for better! Today I have had breakfast in a 3* hotel, and it was not a patch on the fare at Howard Lodge, but was quite excessively expensive. Oh that all overnight stays could be at Howard Lodge!!!
