I stayed at the Cartwheel for two nights recently on a walking break with a friend and will certainly be returning.
Although our twin room was described as "standard" owing to it not being ensuite the two bath robes thoughfully provided made sure it was never felt inconvenient to walk the one flight of stairs to our bathroom. Our room had tea and coffee making facilities, tv etc and was easily big enough for the two of us.
Breakfast was excellent, the car stayed parked right outside for two days as we were able to go on foot directly from the guest house to the fells, and the town centre is only a few hundred yards away.
