    Attention to detail, the little things, like there wasn't any mention of black pudding on the breakfast menu. I cheekily asked if there was any and it appeared on my plate the next morning.
  • Elisa
    Very warm welcome and friendly host. The room was nice and so comfortable. The breakfast was the perfect start in a long day walking Hadrian‘s Wall Path and I‘m so happy that I choose Cornerways Guest House for my stay in Carlisle!
