Stayed here for a couple of nights for our daughter's graduation. We picked the hotel for its central location. This hotel must have been lovely in its heyday but could badly do with some updating, the bathrooms particularly (the shower is abysmal) but the rooms are of a decent enough size. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I would ask for a room at the front if you want a decent view. And take a pair of earplugs...not for any party revellers but for the loudest, stroppiest gangs of seagulls you have ever heard who have no regard for people trying to sleep.
First trip to Carlisle and loved the city, the cathedral is spectacular and there are lots of cafés and restaurants to choose from.
