“Ibis Carlisle”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Good value for money. Relatively new so everything neat and tidy. Ideal City Centre location for access to trains/buses etc. and to explore the city and its places of interest, pubs/clubs, restaurants (found a really good family owned Italian about 500 metres away in Cecil St. - bustley and occasionally noisy but excellent food and wine). Staff very welcoming and attentive. Rooms as you would expect in the this standard format hotel. Would stay again if looking for value for money accommodation. Breakfast a bit steep at 7.95!

a good centrally located hotel - very basic and quite clean - free parking. We didn't eat there as we arrived quite late - breakfast in the morning looked good although we never tried that either. Rooms very basic, but clean and comfortable with hardly any street noise.

We had stayed for one night in November and were pleased so booked again when we were coming for the horse racing at Carlisle. It's in a great position for the shopping centre and lots of restaurants and a short Taxi ride from the racecourse. It's spotlessly clean, the staff were friendly and helpful and we'll stay there again next time we're in Carlisle.

I recently stayed one night at the Ibis on business and , although I was initially pleased with it for a budget hotel , next morning I had several bites which became quite nasty in the course of the day. Room 210 - just beware!

I use this hotel all the time, as I know exactly what I will get each visit. The staff are very helpful and polite and the rooms are always immaculate. Also has the advantage of being the only decent hotel in the city with a proper car park. Having lived in the city for 5 years, its the only hotel I'd happily pay to stay in. Well recommended.

Stayed one night for business and was quite impressed. The double bed was very comfy and it was a quiet room (224). A previous occupant had obviously been a smoker, but didn't complain at the time (wish I had now!) as the smell of nicotine was relatively weak. I was more conscious of the nicotine smell during the night.

However, finding the parking area located at the rear of the hotel was a bit of a pain, but free parking up to 12 noon the following day was very useful. The breakfast option was also pretty good value for money.

I would recommend this budget hotel to anyone for a few nights stay.
