Dated and tired, but welcoming was dad’s description when we eventually bowled through the rusty double doors of the Milton Hilltop Hotel. I actually thought he might punch me when we’d practically walked up what felt like the length of the A6 from Carlisle bus station to find this 80’s monstrosity waiting for us. Now, it’s not quite Faulty Towers or The Marigold Hotel, but this place has to be seen to be believed! To be fair to them, the bed is comfy, they make a decent Caesar salad and they have a 24hr bar, but thats about it. What do you expect for £44 though… 😀 p.s. I don’t think they’ll be hiring me to do their next hotel brochure.
