Cosy, beautifully decorated, loved the changing coloured light in the shower!! Friendly host, lots of nice touches, such as the rocky road made by the owners niece, complimentary items in room. Breakfast very reasonable, great choice and delicious. Very close to city centre so ideal for sightseeing/shopping. Free (permit) parking nearby, arranged by host. Definatly would go back if the need arose.

Happy repeat customer
This was my third time staying at Cartref and it was lovely as usual. I was in one of the single rooms this time after previously staying solo in one of the double rooms. Although small (as you'd expect from a single room) it didn't feel overly small and was decorated to the same high standard as the room I'd stayed in before. In the morning I found that the hairdryer was missing from the room but a quick trip downstairs and a request to Melanie was met with an apology and a hairdryer. Breakfast is great value for money and freshly cooked to order with lots to choose from (you just put your order in the day before so they can make sure they have the necessary ingredients to hand in the morning). I will always book Cartref when visiting Carlisle for gigs and am happy to recommend it to friends or family visiting the area too.

Very good 8.0
Lovely local Bnb and great host.
Really good communication, I cannot fault the host in anyway, breakfast was great as well and the room was well appointed with nice little extras. I can imagine a person of big stature finding the en-suite a bit on the unforgiving side size wise and there is no lift, neither of which was a problem for me personally. Many thanks !
