The parking lot was in the back, but it wasn't obvious how to get there from the front. The receptionist came outside and helped direct us in a very friendly way. We had booked a rate that included breakfast, but they didn't think so. I went and showed them the printout for the reservation that breakfast was included, and they...

From check in to breakfast could not fault anyone. We took advantage of a deal offered weeks before and had excellent value for money. One tip, if staying Friday or Saturday, ask for a room at the back.

Stayed for two nights. Basic but clean room. Lovely shower. Staff friendly and helpful. Free car park at back of hotel - excellent! Didn't eat here as a weather spoons just across the road. Would stay again when visiting Carlisle. Cheap and cheerful!

Hotel is quite central. A few nice local pubs within a short walking distance. If you visit the shabby scholar is a must place to eat. You won't be disappointed. Been here two years running and would definitely go back

I stayed in Carlisle en route to Edinburgh and to see old friends. The hotel is well situated close to the railway station and buses. The area is very lively so I chose a room at the back of the hotel and it was very quiet and much larger than one might expect in a city centre hotel. I have...

My partner and I stay here regularly. Asked at reception for a room on the rear of hotel . Chose double bed rather than twin. Never realised before but you are less likely to be on the same floors as stag and hen groups if you choose a double. Thanks to the great reception staff for this tip. Room spotlessly...
