Loved My Stay At Cornerways
Hi there

I don't usually wrote trip advisor reviews but wanted to let people know how wonderful this guest house is:) I was in Carlisle just for Sat evening to attend a relative's 50th birthday party and I'm so glad I can across Cornerways. Having never been to Cumbria before I was so touched with the wonderful and professional welcome I got from Adele and Tom and their welcome made such a difference to my weekend. Breakfast was really lovely and the room was of a very high standard with everything you would need. I've stayed in quite a few hotels and this one goes to the top of my list for welcome, cleanliness, comfort, warmth and general lively atmosphere :) hosts were so nice :) beat regards, Louise Jack

Second Review
I am delighted to write a second review for Cornerways Guesthouse with five stars! My previous review was taken into account by the owner and we were pleasantly surprised that we had sweeteners in the room for to have instead of sugar which was a nice touch. We were heading our for our evening meal and remembered to choose our breakfasts and the menu has been updated to include more choices. I chose halloumi and it was beautiful!

On our way out the owner offered us a lift to the Sands Centre after our meal which was brilliant! Never had such great customer service offered.

Will definately be back.

Thanks again

Perfect. Host. Location. Bed. Breakfast.
The moment I arrived I was greeted by my hosts who made me feel welcome. Check in was fluid and my single bed room was cosy, perfect for a single night.

I would recommend this place for three reasons.

1. Location. 10 min walk from the station. And walking distance to tesco and Asda. If you are planning hadrians wall. You can stay here and travel to Haltwhistle station from Carlsie. 30 min ride.

2. Cosy single room. Small considerate things such as local booklet for travellers and plastic cup for rinsing your mouth! The bed was a delight too.

3. Breakfast. You simply cannot miss this. A pot of coffee (not a cup) and a delicious english breakfast. You also have other meal options which is great for vegetarians. Toast is self served and cereal is also available.

Overall I was pleased to stay at this place and given the opportunity stay again.

A lovely guest house and a brilliant service.

In a very convenient location, in close proximity to the city centre.

The rooms were spacious with TV built in, the breakfast was amazing and also we helped ourselves with other hot drinks and cereals.

Definitely Recommend it !

A Great Stay
A great place to stay in the centre of town. The staff are very welcoming, polite and attentive. I would highly recommend anybody to stay here either long or short term. The room was immaculately presented as was the rest of the house and the food.

Our Stay
We stayed there for one night, there was a lot of stairs to reach our room, but the room was very clean, and the breakfast was excellent. I would stay there again on my next trip to Carlisle. Thank you

Hello Burt,

Many thanks for your kind comments, we are sorry that you found the stairs a bit of a challenge, as you can appreciate this being an old character Victorian property it is a little on the tall side, hopefully next time that you stay with us there will be availability on the first floor!

Kind regards.

Hello Anna,

Many thanks for your feedback, apologies for the late response, trusting that you've enjoyed your Land's End to J O Groats cycle run. Sorry that we have only been able to offer you the secure outdoor storage for your cycles, had we thought about it we could have provided some tarpaulin to cover your cycles, it was a bit of a wet & windy night / day I recall. I'll put it on the list for the next cyclists!

Kind regards.

Carlisle College - Carlisle - University

Distance 0.16 miles (0.26 km)
Carlisle College is transforming its estate into a 21st Century facility, with the first phase of this exciting rebuild now open.

We're going places so that more people can benefit from local first class learning facilities and get the experience, job or career that they want.

Carlisle College offers an extensive range of higher and further education, professional qualifications and community programmes, from access courses to HND's and qualifications from professions such as accounting, management and others specific to industry.

Carlisle Castle - Cumbria - Castle

Carlisle Castle - Cumbria - Castle

Distance 0.67 miles (1.08 km)
Carlisle Castle amply repays those wishing to explore its 900-year history. Once commanding the western end of the Anglo-Scottish border, the castle has witnessed, over the centuries, countless conflicts and sieges, as both the English and Scots laid claim to it. The original castle was an earth-and-wood construction, built in 1093 by William II. In 1122, when Henry I gave orders that the existing defences at Carlisle Castle be refashioned, work on the first stone buildings began. The city walls and the stone keep were constructed over the next decade, today, the great keep is the oldest building in the fortress complex.The elaborate wall-carvings in one small cell were probably made by prisoners of Richard of Gloucester in about 1480, but these werent the last prisoners to be held at Carlisle.

Carlisle Racecourse - Carlisle - Racecourse

Carlisle Racecourse - Carlisle - Racecourse

Distance 2.48 miles (3.97 km)
Horse racing in the historic border city of Carlisle dates back to at least the 16th Century and each year Carlisle Racecourse holds the Cumberland Plate and Carlisle Bell races, carrying on a tradition which dates back to that era. Amongst it's innumerable 'claims to fame', Carlisle launched the first operational Tote on British racecourses in 1929 and notably Red Rum won at the Carlisle September meeting prior to each of his Grand National wins. Progressive upgrading of the facilities has taken place over the years but none as significant as the construction of a brand new 'state-of-the-art' Jubilee Grandstand which opened in October 2002. Race goers can now enjoy superb horse racing from their own private box or in the luxury of the new County dining room.

Eden Golf Club - Carlisle - Golf

Eden Golf Club - Carlisle - Golf

Distance 3.86 miles (6.18 km)
The Eden Golf Course is a hidden gem situated along the banks of the River Eden with beautiful views of the lake District and pennine fells. Tight tree lined fairways and numerous natural water hazards mark this course out as a great test of golf. Located just outside Carlisle and only five minutes from the M6 this course is a must visit for any discerning golfer who wishes to step outside the comfort zone. The Eden Golf Course is situated five miles from junction 44 of the M6 and only a mile off the main A689 Newcastle to Carlisle road close to the village of Low Crosby. Golf Lessons are available on an individual or group situation, non club memebers are also welcome.
