Like most Premiers, the room was good. Unusually - possibly a first for Premiers - it actually had a suitcase holder - excellent! The only slight problem was the hot tap (why do they put that stupid sign 'Beware: hot water' by the hot tap? What do you expect out of a hot tap? Sand?) which suddenly spurts so you get drenched.
My problem with Premiers is usually to do with breakfast, which is not covered by the Premier guarantee. This was one of the unfortunate ones that stops serving at 10.00. Why can they not serve up to 11.00 at weekends and 10.30 otherwise? However the service was notably better than usual.
- 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. There is a Premier Inn hotel located on this junction but Carlisle North is located 1 mile away on the A7 towards Carlisle.On the left, next to The Gosling Bridge Transport and local information: Carlisle Castle Historic Site Hadrian's Wall Historic Site Carlisle Golf Course Carlisle Train Station 2 miles ... more less
