We stopped for one night to break our journey. The room was very clean and spacious, with an enormous bed. Unfortunately there is no air condtioning in the rooms, and ours faced the sun. On the hottest day of the year so far, this made for an unpleasantly hot night. We had the window open, but this did little to cool the room and meant that we had noise from the road and car park.
The worst problem, however, was that the shower was unreliable. It worked intermittently, and packed up completely when I'd just shampooed my hair and covered myself with soap. Inadequate rinsing in the washbasin followed.
If you stay here, you'd be best to avoid having a shower!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Carlisle is the ideal base to explore the grandeur of the Lake District. And Premier Inn Hotel Carlisle Central North is a grand place to stay, putting you within easy reach of the national park as well as the business and leisure facilities of the historic city centre. Whether you're strolling along Carlisle high street, or stomping along High Street Fell, there's plenty to distract you here. Some visitors come to buy livestock at the Harrison & Hetherington auction market, others to spend time on Hadrian's Wall. Every September there's the Tour of Britain cycle race too. Then it's time to unclip from the pedals and unwind back at the hotel, with our tasty restaurant and extra-comfy beds. Directions: Exit M6 (J44) onto the A7.
