Positive Reviews

Clean and comfortable rooms with good facilities.

Reviewers mostly liked the rooms at this hotel for being fairly spacious and usually cleaned to a good standard. With powerful showers, windows that opened and posh king-size beds, most reviewers thought the rooms were comfortable and more than adequate for their stay. The availability of adapted ground floor rooms with accessibility features was welcomed by some guests.

Handy location, especially for motorists.

If you’re bringing the car, you can take advantage of free on-site parking at this hotel. Motorists liked the location for access to downtown Carlisle and the M6.

Friendly welcome.

Reviewers’ opinions about staff were positive on the whole. Most guests described the personnel as polite, friendly and professional.

Negative Reviews

Room temperatures troubled some.

It is usually a matter of personal taste, but occasionally guests reported finding the temperature in their rooms could be uncomfortable in very hot or cold weather. Those bothered by heat in the summer noted the lack of air-conditioning. Those feeling chilly in the winter thought the heating could do with being beefed up. However, the windows do open and there were accounts of fans or extra heaters being provided on request.

Mixed reception for food.

Plenty of diners enjoyed their experience at the attached Table Table restaurant, but some were less than impressed. Some unhappy diners reported occasional slow service, unappealing food, order mix-ups and unavailable menu choices.

Dated ambience.

Being part of a big budget accommodation chain usually ensures a reassuring level of consistency in appearance, facilities and standards between the various hotels. While most visitors thought this hotel was on par with others in the chain, some thought it had a dated or tired feel with communal areas looking as though they might benefit from some revamping.
