“great family run small hotel”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is a hotel that does not have a pleasant look from outside! we worried a little about going in. It is on a very busy road and looks a bit sad. But entering you are met with a bright welcoming hallway to reception. The owners are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spotless, as is the whole hotel, with everything you would need. There are, it seems, lots of corridors with little steps of stairs here and there but all well lit and spotlessly clean. Quite quirky really! We could not hear any traffic noise (our room was at the back and it might be different at the front of the hotel). Breakfast was more than adequate and all cooked food was made to order using local produce, with plenty of cereals/fresh fruit/ juice etc. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Do not be put off by the outside!

Room Tip: maybe rooms at the back would avoid traffic noise from a very busy road.

Many thanks for taking the tme to write a review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you were happy with everything. With reference to your comment about the front of the building, it is well maintained but we agree it is not the most picturesque buiding to look at from the outside. In the Spring and Summer we do try to fill the front with hanging baskets and colourful flowering containers so on your next visit it should look more attractive than it does in January.

Myself and my friend travelled to Carlisle for the night as I had a job interview at the hospital. Check in process was efficient and extremely friendly. I was given a map and directions to the hospital and also advised to set off earlier than I had planned due to road works in the area.
Evening meal was of an excellent quality and value.
Sleep was great and I have to say that the sofa was extremely comfortable. My friend says the same for the bed.
Breakfast the following morning was again of a high quality and check out process was efficient.
Would not hesitate to stay here again if I am in the area.

Initially, we were a little hestitant about staying at this hotel from the outside view but Rachel was so friendly and helpful we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights here. It looks like a hotel but has the attention to detail and personal service of a bed and breakfast. We required washing done, Rachel ensured it was done the same night we checked in and returned to us the next morning, which we greatly appreciated. The hotel was located only a short walk to all the main attractions. It offers a dinner menu which was great after a long day sight seeing. Rachel also allowed us to bring take away meals in providing plates and cutlery which was another bonus. The only minor downside was our room was a little too warm even after adjusting the radiator. Overall a great place to stay to explore the region.

had a great stay here only sorry it wasn't for longer.The owners were very welcoming and our room extremely clean and comfortable.We were lucky to be able to experience the evening meal which was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection,(if you can please eat here in the evening highly reccommended), great value too.We thouroughly enjoyed breakfast, choice of cereals, lots of fruit and yoghurt , breakfast juices and any combination of cooked you required.Parking at the hotel is just around the corner, the owner will give you a ticket to display in the local carpark (no charge), town centre just a short 10 minute walk though there is a pub,carry out /sit in restaurant, supermarket, stationers etc close by to the hotel

Used TripAdvisor to identify a few candidates for a long weekend in Carlisle and came up trumps.

Reviews spot on, 100% helpful and accurate - made life easy

Chose Angus Hotel as it was pretty close to the town centre and on the main road through town. Less than 10 minutes from motorway, which was perfect having driven from Aberdeen,

Arrived and checked in. Staff helpful throughout stay,
Rooms clean, bright and airey, and great value.

Parking is free and close by and free wi-fi in all rooms. Good strength signal, which was tremendous

Rooms have been modernised, en suite shower was good - plenty of hot water.
Restaurant good and breakfast was cooked to order so no sacrificed bacon. Very good breakfast.

If i was to record any negative points they would be as follows:

1. please put a bigger TV in rooms - makes all the difference
2. orange juice at breakfast was not good - for a little added outlay - you could get better juices to compliment what was a very hearty and fresh breakfast

Very hospitable owner - nothing too much trouble

Will definately be going back.

We spent a nice couple of days at this cute little B&B. The staff are so sweet and the place is warm and cosy. The breakfast wasn't that good (not much variety; you'd be fine if you like the typical English breakfast). The restaurant wasn't open for dinner on either evening during our stay (there was an Indian restaurant that was good and open till later, so was another restaurant closer to the train station). Carlisle shuts down pretty early in the evening though, so plan accordingly.

After searching high and low for a reasonably priced hotel/B&B in the Carlisle area I stumbled across The Angus and I am glad I did. Husband and wife duo run a great establishment. The rooms were super clean and quiet and cosy. I ate one night in the dining room and was overwhelmed with the taste of the delicious vegetarian pumpkin and goats cheese lasagna. Just what I had been needing after almost two weeks of average food. Breakfasts were just as delicious and the service impecable. Staff were more than approachable and were extremely helpful in giving advice to the best places along Hadrian's wall to visit.

Thank you for two enjoyable nights.
