We stayed in the safari suite for 2 nights with two young children. The suite was lovely, we loved all the interesting decor and ornaments and the cuddly toys, lots to keep our eyes happy. The view was lovely over the fields, though there were no animals in the fields when we were there... It was winter and rainy. The kitchen in a cupboard was nice and practical, we didn't prepare any food there but could have made breakfast. Bring teabags/milk as you won't get loads. It was on a busy A road, so we could hear road noise, but still slept well. The beds were on the hard side, but I'm like the princess and the pea with beds. Breakfast wasn't provided due to covid, and the prices had gone up in the cafe for the breakfast which was average (can understand with there being less business with covd) , so maybe take breakfast for a day... The cafe is lovely though, and there's the animal garden outside so its worth a visit. The check out was 9am with covid too, which was a little early, but can't been helped in these unusual times! We went on a llama trek while we were there too, which was wonderful. Would definitely recommend this place, as its unusual, entertaining, has a good vibe, and plenty to do on and off site (we visited gretna green, and ullswater lake) , would like to return one day

We stayed in the safari suite. It was OK. We stayed because we thought there were animals onsite and this was the place that the Llama tour departed from. There are no animals on site. Its like a motorway service station very very near the motorway. The llama tour was fab but we had to drive another 20 minutes to join it after being told it was whene we were staying.

we stayed here last night.. planned our arrival around the cafe opening hours as we drove for 3 hours to get here.. turned up 1 hour 30 before it said it was closed but we were turned away!!.. did self check in and went for a walk around looking for animals... nothing not one.... got taxi and went out for tea. Came back and the room is actually good but we had neighbours from hell upstairs and its like sleeping in a truck on the motorway.. just no end of busy traffic and road noise. We managed a few house sleep but after 5am we couldn't sleep.. we are waiting for cafe to open at 8am as we have to leave the room for 9am... all this way and won't get to see any animals ?? My daughter is very disappointed. For the money we could of stayed in a decent hotel.... quirky theme but never again..

The Llama Karma Kafe is probably fine as a place to stop for a bite to eat while seeing and interacting with some unusual animals. As a bed and breakfast experience, Llamas Pyjamas is abysmal. My partner and I and my partners parents stayed here for two nights. Originally booked last year as a present for them (and understandably pushed back due to Covid), we were excited to be spending a long weekend basking in the best of Cumbrian countryside, in a nicely themed B&B, with the added bonus of having some llamas around to interact with. First of all, this is not a bed and breakfast. The website does make it quite clear that breakfast is not included in the price, but is available for purchase at the Kafe. Which is technically fine, but I'm of the impression that if you want to call yourself a bed and breakfast, you're expected to include breakfast for your guests. The Kafe (and rooms) are located in the Cumbrian countryside, and you can see some nice fields from the rooms, but you can also see the A66, a busy, fast main road. And hear it. Because this place is not located on some farm removed from the main road as the website would suggest, but rather, directly on the main road. A Travelodge in a motorway service station is farther from the road than this place. Yes, they provide earplugs in the room. Good luck using those to drown out the drone of traffic speeding past in both directions. Also, be prepared to drive everywhere, because even Brougham Castle, a mere half a mile away, is unwalkwable unless you enjoy becoming roadkill. We stayed in the Inca room, which looked like it was decorated by a 12-year-old girl whose idea of glamour is the Love Island villa and anything you can see in a Girl Talk magazine. Tacky and chintzy, the only Inca-themed items were two Peruvian wall hangings, such as you might buy from the Indian markets in Lima at the end of your Peruvian holiday. Both of which were overshadowed by the giant silvered plastic wall clock (which didn't tell the time because it had no batteries) and the shockingly pink TV/DVD player on the wall. The room was not properly cleaned; a couple of spiders on the inside might be expected in the countryside, but a chewed cherry stone on the bathroom floor, a musty smell of wet dog and sequined cushions which definitely haven't been washed since purchase lying on the pillows were not. The room seemed to have been roofed with drums, because each step from the guests in the room above was amplified and reverberated through ours. My partners parents stayed in the adjacent Aztec room, which wasn't a whole lot better (the decoration was presumably done by the mother of whoever did ours, so not quite as abrasive, but still quite tacky and again, not very "on-theme"). Their bathroom didn't almost flood like ours did upon showering, but their mattress didn't have a topper and their bed sheets were not properly cleaned. Which brings me to prices. For £40 a night, this place would be fine. Not great, just OK. You're not expecting much for £40 a night. However, this place cost us £95 a night, per room. So £380 for two nights. And for that price, this place is not just abysmally disappointing, but feels like a rip-off. Minimal theme, noisy, tacky, and poorly cleaned and maintained and just a poor, poor experience. You don't even get to see any llamas unless you happen to spot them on their way to a trek, or you pay. When we did our research, we thought it was strange that you would have to pay extra to interact directly with the llamas if you're staying there, but we figured that for our £95, we'd be around them, enjoying them at a distance from our nicely themed rooms - having a "living surrounded by llamas" experience. Not at all. The Llamas Pyjamas is clearly a poorly-thought afterthought of a probably decent cafe concept. "People love stopping here and having some food and interacting with our llamas, so they'll love staying here also!" they thought, and then proceeded to tack-on a low-tier AirBnB listing behind their kitchen cafe and charge people £95 a night to sleep there without giving them anything else. In order to justify the inflated prices, this place needs to make the Bed & Breakfast part of their offering as important as the Kafe, step-up massively in terms of quality and comfort, and include some llama experience as part of the price you pay for staying here. Until they do, avoid, avoid, avoid!

We have just left after a two night stay in the safari suite. When you first walk in there is a definite initial wow factor. The decor is unique and looks great. The kids loved the giant stuffed animals and everywhere you looked there is something new for you to spot. However that’s about as good as it got. Checkout was at 9am to allow for a deeper cleaning in current conditions, however it doesn’t look as though that happens and so 9am was just an inconvenience. There was dust on a lot of the ornaments and cobwebs all over the light fitting. The beds weren’t the comfiest ever, but manageable, but there were only two very thin pillows on each double bed and no spares. As we weren’t greeted by anyone, just got an email with the check in process we didn’t feel able to request any others. Despite being a B&B breakfast wasn’t included and the cafe wasn’t actually open, they were offering a takeaway service from a window and was massively overpriced! £4.95 for a bacon butty!! There were no kids breakfasts and so we got 2x sausage sandwiches, 2 bacon sandwiches & 4 hash browns plus a couple of coffees for £29! The food was fine, but definitely not worth the price! It’s advertised that you can see the llamas at breakfast but they weren’t around the gardens either, there was just one rabbit. We hadn’t told the kids about the possibility of seeing animals as we were going to surprise them, but others may have. A few reviews have mentioned the road noise and you can definitely hear trucks and other traffic, however personally this because more white noise than anything, but I can see why it would frustrate some. All in all the stay was..fine. There was nothing particularly terrible, but I don’t think it was worth £280. We probably wouldn’t stay again.
