Stayed at the Midland with friends. All rooms were beautiful and clean. Breakfast and evening meals were delicious. We were made to feel welcome, Appleby is a lovely town. Would stay at the Midland again.

Good food with friendly and efficient service. The meals were well prepared and of good quality and volume. It was mid week and early in the evening so it was very quiet in the resaurant but there was a comfortable atmosphere. A nice meal out at a reasonable price.

Pleasant room. Lovely dinner and breakfast although continental breakfast was a bit skimpy, could supply fruit and yoghurt for breakfast. Cereal and toast not quite enough. Perhaps some pastries. Recently refurbished and decor very tasteful. Thankyou hosts.

Stayed here after the penultimate leg of the Lady Anne's Way. Obviously the hosts are used to walkers as we were wet and muddy but received a warm welcome.

Booked this as a night on the way home from Scotland, and so that we could go on the Carlisle-Settle railway. We were slightly anxious when we arrived, as it doesn't look that great from the outside, but we were very warmly welcomed by the barman and shown to our room, which was stunning! Fabulously stylish, mainly black & white... More

On a steam train excursion from York, we decided to spend the afternoon at Appleby rather than Carlisle. We chose the Railway Hotel for lunch (it was the first thing we saw, leaving the station) and were not disappointed. The roast beef was tender, with a good selection of veg. and a horseradish sauce that didn't make your eyes water.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Midland Hotel has 5 fully re-furbished en-suite rooms, a lovely bar and restaurant. We have three hand-drawn pumps offering a selection of local award-winning beers, ales, traditional ciders and perrys. Cumbrians are fond of their pub food and our menu includes some of the all-time favourites: local butcher's Cumberland sausage in a giant Yorkshire Pudding, lasagne made with best minced steak & red wine, ham & eggs or steak & ale . The Midland is known for its speciality dishes too. Daily specials can include a creamy Italian risotto, a range of Mediterranean treats in the tapas style menu, a Thai curry and there's always a selection of vegetarian specials. We aim to use as many locally-sourced ingredients as we can and make as many of our dishes on site as possible. We use Appleby Creamery's award-winning cheeses in our speciality dishes or you can have a selection as a light meal or dessert. ... more   less

“If you are concerned about bar noise don't be: the owners are very careful to ensure that music is turned off at 11pm and there are rooms which are not situated above the bar. Despite two events being on (unusual but it was Halloween!) and the bar being quite noisy, we found that as soon as you entered the resident staircase the noise level substantially diminished.”
