If you are looking for a faceless, identical, corporate hotel, this isn't for you. It is a converted Victorian terrace, and as such has character. The rooms are on the small side, but clean and pleasant. Our room was at the end of a corridor on the upper floor, which meant going up and down stairs, and along a sloping floor, which would have been difficult for anyone with walking difficulties; but don't let this put you off, as the staff are very friendly and helpful, and there may well be more accessible rooms. We liked ours as the remote position meant it was very peaceful.
Black-out blinds and comfortable beds and pillows meant a good night's sleep; and plentiful hot water, with complementary toiletries and lots of soft towels ensured a relaxing bath, or a brisk shower. A kettle, tea, coffee, milk and biscuits were also provided in the room.
We didn't have breakfast, but did enjoy an evening meal. The food was plentiful, and reasonable for the price we paid, nothing wrong with it, but nothing special.
We stopped overnight to break our journey to Scotland, but it would be equally good for a short break to enjoy the interesting city of Carlisle, as the hotel is on the outskirts. It is just a 15 minute walk away from the centre, which means it is quiet, but convenient. We would definitely stay again, and would recommend it to others.
