First thing, calling it "Carlisle Central" is misleading as anywhere you might call the centre is at least a mile away (unlike Travelodge and Ibis Centrals in Carlisle). Whole place is in bad need of refurbishment. We stayed two nights. First morning the breakfast was the standard help yourself buffet. Second morning the person in charge, whose manner was brusque to the point of rudeness, and who hadn't bothered to pop on a uniform to enable identification, informed us that she had decided not to put out the hot buffet, we had to order what we wanted from staff. This meant waiting for food, having to ask for the order, not being able to just help ourselves as we wished, and the food when it arrived wasn't hot, so no better than serving yourself. The waiting staff were in consequence rushed off their feet and the coffee area in particular was filthy, as obviously if staff are having to do more serving they don't have time to clear up. A failed experiment in our view, presumably trying to save a few pennies.
