“The Hallmark is a favourite for easy-breakers in Carlisle. In fact, we’d say it was the number one hotel in the city. It’s really central if you’re visiting to see the sights or do some shopping, but it’s also next door to the train station and it has its own parking (though limited) if you're heading on after your stay.”
