Hallmark Hotel Carlisle


There are few hotels in Carlisle that can boast such an enviable position. Just a short drive from the M6 and next to the main train station with trains every hour to London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Edinburgh, if you’re got business in the city, there’s no better place to stay and if you want a base to explore the breathtaking Lake District National Park, then you can easily combine city shopping with beautiful landscapes and exhilarating walks and water sports. Closer to the city, a visit to Hadrian’s Wall is a must and there’s racing, live events at the nearby Sands Centre and plenty of city events to enjoy and appreciate. We have parking on site too which few city centre hotels can offer. To see our latest short break offers, click here.

The hotel

The striking Victorian building is matched with modern, boutique interiors which makes the Hallmark Hotel Carlisle one of the most desirable places to stay in Cumbria’s capital. With 70 comfortable bedrooms all offering reliable WiFi coverage, freeview TV and round the clock room service, the bold splashes of colour are matched by genuine bold and friendly northern service. 

Our afternoon tea – served every day in the bar or brasserie – is a real treat. The selection of homemade scones and freshly whipped cream, tray bakes and finger sandwiches is one of Carlisle’s great culinary experiences.

Our Victorian Ballroom is magnificent. It has capacity for up to 180 guests for a sit-down meal, making it the perfect venue for your wedding reception, special celebration, club dinner or ball in Carlisle.

Guests at the hotel have special access to the DW Sports Fitness Club, just 10 minutes’ walk away (for only £10.00 per person). The club has luxury facilities including a 20-metre swimming pool, a large air-conditioned gymnasium, steam-room, spa baths and exercise studio.

Fantastic functions and seamless meetings

Opened over 150 years ago, our dramatic ballroom, with Cumbria’s only wood sprung dance floor, makes a stunning venue for a wedding or a captivating setting for a conference dinner or awards ceremony. And with our 5 versatile meeting rooms, you can power through agendas and enjoy strategy brainstorming easily here. Combine first rate facilities with our team of meticulous planners and you’ve got all the ingredients for a fantastic event. 

Stay in, it’s the new going out

Our richly coloured brasserie with glass fronted wine store offers an acclaimed mix of British and European modern classics, light bites and our legendary afternoon tea. We source our ingredients carefully so that we can create stunning home comforts during your stay such as beer battered fish to homemade pies to bouillabaisse, arancini and pork schnitzel, along with occasional spicy favourites from further afield including Goan prawn curry.
