I’ve stayed twice and will go back when I’m travelling to Carlisle again. Staff are brilliant, helpful and friendly and do great deals for returning guests. Rooms are warm, cosy, spotless, fresh and modern. Bed is extremely comfy.
They welcome dogs wholeheartedly- and your dog can accompany you in the bar and restaurant- which is such a relief. Set in lovely grounds and huge park 5 mins drive up the road. I go to dog agility shows regularly in Carlisle and this is just perfect for us. 100% recommended.
We were only going to be able to spend the night at the Lodge after a long day driving up from Liverpool and the Lakes.
Neither our car GPS nor mobile device GPS were sure where the Lodge is. And we were driving there in the dark! Hence the name of my post.
But, once we saw the sign and pulled in, we were very happy we'd booked the place. I've never stayed in a place like this, and I'd only ever seen places like this on TV (Yes, I did mention Fawlty Towers while I was there). I wasn't sure at all what to expect. Which is a large part of why I booked it.
The friendly staff. Quiet, comfortable, warm room with the 4 poster bad. Modern bathroom. Nice fireplace in the front room. Etc. Was exactly what we needed at the end of the day. The full breakfast the next morning really helped us on our way as well.
Not sure when I'm going to be back in this part of the world again, but I would definitely try to stay here again.
