The hotel is situated a tad out of the city centre — I should say, if you are coming form Carlisle station, at least half an hour’s walk, and most of it uphill. Yet, in the end, that is a good thing. The surroundings are a haven of quietude; this hotel is located in a most pleasant nook of the city, which on Saturday nights can be highly advantageous to one’s nocturnal rest.
Now, first and foremost: the hotel is all-right — absolutely. I must say, nevertheless, it has a tad of a late 80s appearance; the carpets have seen better days and I did find a bug of some kind in the bathroom, but in spite of that, it possesses all the amenities which one associates with a hotel. Staff are agreeable and convivial, and I did get my fair share of inebriation at the bar (dodgy quizzing machine notwithstanding).
In essence: all you need to do upon leaving the hotel is to turn left and keep going. You will encounter the city centre, the cathedral and the fascinating Carlisle Castle, amongst other things. The breakfast at the Pinegrove is copious. In combination with its sedate environment, it provides an apt getaway. All hail to Carlisle, say I.
