“stay here for a stress-free visit to Carlisle”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

The room was spacious, warm and well-appointed, very good value for the price. Roy Messenger was also enormously helpful: he had found out some information I needed before I even arrived; the next day he gave me a lift, and then stayed up late to support in a family crisis -- cheerful and practical at 11:30 pm! And he still served a delicious and punctual breakfast. He would make anyone's visit as pleasant and stress-free as possible.

I booked this as a last minute stop-over in Carlisle for business and was pleasantly surprised by the standard of accommodation.

The room was spacious and clean and the owner was extremely helpful.

If you are in the area and need quality accommodation at a reasonable price, then look no further!!

Many thanks to Roy for a great stay.

The B&B is close to Carlisle city centre, and only a 5 min walk to the shops.

The room was very clean, comfortable and with a good en suite.

Parking was no problem and we were given a reserved spot right next to the door, and the host was very helpful with directions and advice where to eat.

The best bit has to be the breakfast, which is served with the best Cumberland sausage!!

Hope to stay again in the near future.

Thanks so much to Roy for making us welcome in his clean and friendly B and B. The B and B was in a crowded parking area, but Roy saw too it immediately that we had somewhere close to park, and actually helped us take our luggage to our rooms which seems so rare in England these days. Roy recommended places to eat and we were very happy to eat at the local pub as we had had a long day travelling. After a great sleep, Roy cooked us a wonderful breakfast, whatever we wanted, he cooked, - delicious.

Park and walk to Carlisle. This location is within walking distance to the downtown area. Roy made us feel right at home and was great with all the local information. His breakfast was great. Always right there when you needed something. Very willing to assist in anyway. Great stay!
