Stayed over a weekend for two nights. The hotel was an ideal location for me as I travelled to Carlisle by train – the hotel is opposite the train station, literally a 1 minute walk and located on a main high street in the town centre. Overall I liked the hotel. It is very dated but being an older hotel it had a lot of character. My room was small but perfect for my needs. Had a nice flat screen tv which included the Sky News channel, which for me was a bonus. There were tea / coffee facilities, biscuits, shower gel, soap and shampoo provided. My room was on the busy main road. If staying at the weekend, may want to ask for a room at the back of the hotel due to noise from clubbers etc on the high street, although I didn’t have any major problems. I booked directly through the hotel website, which was offering a discount on the site at the time of booking and included full English breakfast. The buffet breakfast was good and included cooked food - eggs, bacon, sausages, toast etc, yoghurts, cereal, fruit, fruit juice, tea and coffee. If I am in Carlisle in the future, I would definitely stay here again - I felt it was reasonably priced compared to other chain hotels and as stated was an ideal location.
