Faded Grandeur

We stayed here using an Itison voucher.  I suspect this hotel used to be quite grand, but needs a facelift now.  The room was very old fashioned, as was the bathroom.  We had a meal included in our de... more

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review following you stay with us, we truly appreciate the feedback that our guests provide as this is what allows us to continue to improve, so once again thank you. I'm sorry that your experience in the bar was not up to standard, our home made lasagna is usually praised by our guests and is one of our more popular dishes - once again I apologise that we didn't meet your expectations on this occasion. The hotel is undergoing a period of change currently and the planned works in the future will address the fixtures and fittings, however a stained lampshade is not acceptable and I have flagged this with our Housekeeping team and would appear to have been missed on both cleaning and checking of the room and has since been replaced. I'm pleased that you found the staff friendly and helpful and we hope we can welcome you back to the Hallmark Hotel in Carlisle on your next trip to the area. Kind regards Rob Dixon General Manager
