I spent one night here returning from Scotland on bussiness - asked our "admin" people for something in the Carlisle area and this is what they came up with.......
The hotel is right in the middle of the City. If arriving late in the evening one must drive down a street which does'nt appear to go anywhere (Think its marked as a dead end or no entry or something) and arrive at a large gate and an intercom. There is ample secure parking.
Reception is friendly and efficient.
As has been pointed out by other reviewers the hotel is old. Now I like a building with history - a sense of the past and a lived in quality. If you are looking for "Designer" "Quirky" or "boutique" (Im not sure what that actually means - but this isn't it ! ) then maybee this isnt for you. Historic (in a complimentary way) solid and traditional then this is for you. However the rooms are comfortable and have a warm feel to them. The free wifi works very well.
Used the free swimming pool in the morning - it's certainly not a big pool but its free and sufficient for a quick dip.
Breakfast was ok - just had cerials but the cooked fayre looked ok. Serving staff were friendly and helpfull.
I liked the place - a "traditional" red brick town centre hotel with charisma and charm. Ok - the lifts a bit rattly and the floorboards a tad creaky but its comfortable, convenient and friendly.
