My wife, 11-year-old son and I stayed here for two nights on the way from Bedfordshire to Scotland, and then for another night on the way back home. I think we all enjoyed it. We liked its city-centre location and appreciated being able to park our car on-site. The bar food was good. We had fun each day swimming in the small pool. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The hotel has a lot of old-world charm (including marble columns, stained glass, vaulted ceilings), but that does mean some of the carpets are a bit frayed and the interior decoration looks rather tired in places - particularly in the bedrooms (although these were large, comfortable and clean). The sound-proofing between bedrooms rooms could be improved - during our final night we spent too long listening to our neighbours chatting into the small hours. That said, I would go back there because of the city centre location, helpful staff and glimpse of the world before anonymous hotel chains took over - hence the four stars.
I would add that Carlisle is a great city, well worth a visit if you have smallish children.
