Positive Reviews

Near Carlisle centre and a shopping mall

Most guests rated the lodge's location excellently, as it is only a few minutes' walk from the train station and the central shopping area of the town. The town centre itself is an easy five-minute walk away. Asda Shopping Complex is just down the road from the property, which is very convenient when the guests need urgent supplies.

Friendly and helpful hosts

Guests appreciated the hospitality of the lodge owners. They really felt that they were welcomed, and all their questions and requests were easily accommodated. Some of the guests even had a lovely chat and drink with the owners of the lodge.

Enjoyable home-cooked breakfast

The breakfast is always well-cooked, and the ingredients used are of good quality, some are even home grown. Many of those guests who stayed here loved dining at the pleasant conservatory at the side of the lodge, where books can be enjoyed while eating the morning meal.

Negative Reviews

Noise from outside easily enters the room

The property is located on a busy main road, which is extremely loud especially when the traffic is heavy according to guests. There is also a pub next door, which plays loud music at select hours in the night, and often disturbs the sleep of the guests.

Small, insufficient rooms

Many guests complained about the size of the rooms, stating that what they got were too small. Those who stayed at the very top of the house were especially infuriated as the rooms were cramped and the bed was too small.

Cramped bathroom

While there are en-suite shower and sink, the area can be too cramped - much to the dismay of previous guests.
