Positive Reviews

Convenient, city centre location

It’s close to the railway station and with shops, pubs, clubs and nightlife generally, similarly convenient, it’s difficult to fault this hotel’s location. From Carlisle, you can get to the Lake District very easily.

Carlisle is a great centre from which to explore

From the Ibis, take a trip on the Carlisle to Settle railway or, if you are more adventurous, how about Hadrian’s Wall and maybe clamber over it, to Scotland! There is so much you can do from this hotel Plus, not only is the Ibis in Carlisle, it is in the centre of the city, with a further plethora of attractions and facilities to enjoy.

Staff are always helpful

Helpful, friendly staff and excellent day to day housekeeping, make staying here a pleasure Add to this, warm and welcoming rooms and what more could you want, particularly when you are paying a fraction of the charge of higher rated hotels in this area.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast prices difficult to digest

This is an extra you can manage without. Really, quite unappealing with a price tag designed to repel the hotel’s boarders. Fortunately, this city centre isn’t short of alternatives.

Some noisy bookers nearby

There is noise from inebriated groups, both in the hotel and outside. A real pain when all you yearn for is a decent night’s sleep. To be fair, the hotel does alert you to the possibility of noise pollution in its publicity.

It’s a bit tired

You might be tired, too, after trying to sleep amid all the racket going on during the night from residents and neighbouring clubs and bars. Decor is a bit naff now and tell tale flickering lights just add to the feeling that the place has seen better days, quite a long time ago!
