Map & Directions

The hotel is moments from Carlisle railway station, which has links to destinations across the United Kingdom. A direct train from Manchester Airport, which is 126 miles from the hotel takes around two hours and 10 minutes -- fares vary considerably, but cost from around £13 one-way, when purchased in advance. The hotel has limited car parking (26 spaces) that's available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Set in an imposing Victorian building adjacent to Carlisle railway station, the Hallmark Hotel Carlisle is steeped in history. The building was designed by Anthony Salvin, a pupil of British architect John Nash, who was responsible for Buckingham Palace and Brighton's Royal Pavilion. It was built in time for a visit by Queen Victoria in 1853, and there was a special entrance linking the station to the hotel for her arrival. William Gladstone, who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom four times, gave an address from one of the hotel's windows in 1890.

The hotel's central location and proximity to the railway station makes it a good base for anyone wishing to explore the area. It's ideally located for visits to the scenic Yorkshire Dales and Cumbrian Fells on the Settle-Carlisle Railway. The Lanes Shopping Centre, which has more than 70 shops and boutiques, is about a 10-minute walk from the hotel. Carlisle Castle, which is more than 900 years old and is now managed by English Heritage, is just a mile away.

There are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby, and the hotel's brasserie-style restaurant serves modern British cuisine and international classics. There's also a wine bar serving lighter bites.

There are five function rooms at the hotel, three of which, including the grand ballroom, are licensed for civil ceremonies. Guests have access to a local fitness club with a swimming pool and a gym for £10 when a valid Hallmark Hotel Carlisle key card is produced at the club's reception.

The 70 comfortable bedrooms have free Wi-Fi. Most have period features including high ceilings and large windows that allow natural light to flood in. For more space, consider upgrading to an executive bedroom.

Enjoyed Most: The evening meal was very good. Food cooked well. My husband and I had different starters and Mains and both were really nice. vegetables were cooked properly..not "indente" which is the norm for so many other places The chambermaids were very pleasant and friendly!
Other Comments: The reception staff were efficiant but I would have appreciated a more warm and friendly approach. Felt personal interest was lacking. Also in the resteraunt when we were given the dinner menu no explanation was given for the deal we were on and we had to call the waitress to save any embarrasment when ordering. The same waitress served breakfast and we found her unfriendly again. We were not offered more coffee and had to ask. We felt like naughty schoolkids as we were last in the dining room and she and another member of staff were busy resetting tables for lunchtime.
