      I received a friendly and welcoming service from the word go. I am slightly disabled, and I found that I only had to ask in order to get help.

      It was a little bit shabby.

    • Couple

      Cheap as chips

      Half a mile walk to room from reception and no heating

    • Couple

      Location to alternative means of transport and large range of different places for restaurants/cafes

      When you look at the outside you think your walking into a bit of a dive, thankfully the inside is a lot better

    • Older travelers

      The location was in the centre of town, near all the shops etc.

      The floorboards of the floor above and the noise from the hotel and outside. Bathroom needed updating.

    • Single

      The Hotel was a lot better than I expected after reading some reviews. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful, my room was very clean and bed very comfy. It was a very quiet room 309. perfectly located top of Botchergate, never had breakfast went to Loyds just accross the road. Shower was piping hot, plenty of clean towels, tea,coffee,biscuits etc,hairdryer,flatscreen tv. Would stay again I prefered it to the Ibis just down the road.

    • Older travelers

      Excellent room, very comfortable

      Being in a front bedroom, overlooking Botchergate, on a Saturday night, we found it very, very noisy until about 5am.

    • Older travelers

      Staff friendly and helpful.

      Not very good choice for evening meal and the wine was not chilled.

    • Older travelers

      the location is good if you do not mind the hectic nightlife immediately outside the hotel

      rooms need re furbished, breakfast very basic, not for families

    • Group of friends

      Size of room, cleanliness

      Noise, however as hotel is so central I did expect this

    • Family with children

      City centre. Noisy at weekends due to three bars/ clubs in close proximity

    • Couple

      Nothing well except maybe somones hair in the scrambled egg .... Set us up for the day !

    • Older travelers

      On first night had to ask for extra blankets though night porter arranged pretty quickly for us which helped as my wife was ill.

      On our first (Thursday) night the room overlooked Botchergate and we were kept awake until after 03:00 due to the noise and fighting outside. This was awful as my wife's ill, recovering from an operation. The next morning we were moved to a room at the back of the hotel which was fine for that (Friday) night though on the following (Saturday) one there was very loud music, due to a function in the hotel, until 24:00, followed by constant loud noise and shouting from the room opposite ours until 04:00, including the door being broken down! Twice we asked them to stop, I phoned the night porter who indicated he'd sort it out though didn'T. I complained again on check-out though was told that no manager was available to discuss it with though it would be reported.

    • Couple

      Bed quite comfortable and easy access to train station

      Staff unenthusiastic.

    • Single

      I am originally from Carlisle and like to return as often as I can to visit family and friends there.The County Hotel is perfectly situated for me in the city centre,and the secure car park is a bonus.I Have stayed there many times over the last six years or so.

      The only bad experience I have had was on my latest visit at Easter this year when although I was located in a room at the back of the hotel the noise from the disco across the street was unbearable and went on until 4 A.M.i feel this is a major problem for the hotel and will be seeking accommodation elsewhere in future.

    • Single

      Helpful staff, good breakfast, large comfortable room.

      Carpets looking a bit shabby.
