“Falty towers”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2010

The cafe - worst service I've ever had. The miserable cook is like something out of a horror film. Don't ever complain to her about the food. Waitress: good looking but walks around with a face like a smacked bottom. The bottomless cup of tea is good value though. Food not too bad. Overall a 1970s greasy spoon. Took me right back to the 70s. Would we come again: Yes just for the sheer fun and entertainment. The dirty looks we get off the staff is fantastic.

We arrived at the night owl & thought "oh sweet jesus what have we done"
But we went inside & the lady on reception was very nice.
The rooms were clean and had decent TVs!
We went for a night out in carlisle and arrived back about 1:30am & the shop etc was still open which was great.
The only minor complaint I have about this place was the 'bed' I slept on was a sofa bed which kinda collapsed in the middle, but on the whole it was cheap clean & a short taxi journey into carlisle.

Not a hotel but a motel, and the dodgiest ever! It's really cheap, and I think this might fool most people. The entrance is through a petrol station shop, then up some dull stairs, then into a poor, worn, dirty bedroom with one clean thing: the sheets (although in the morning, while checking out, I found the new sheets for the room nicely resting on the floor outside the door!). the best thing ever: complimentary biscuits packets - already opened. myself and my boyfriend had a laugh about the whole thing - but i think a more mature person, and not a backpacker like us, could really find the hotel disturbing. the car park looks like the perfect drug dealing spot. brrrrrr. better book the premier in across the road.

My self and my wife arrived at Night owl about 3.30pm after a long drive from Bonny Scotland we didnt no what to expect when we got there but i suppose we were quite shocked after all we only paid £40.00 for a room with en-suite room 101.The chap on reception was very polite and helpfull.Our room was very basic with yellow painted brick work and 70s retro tiles in the bathroom and above the sink in the room but we didnt care the room was spotless, clean bedding,clean towels and had central heating and we also had digital tv.After we un-packed we went down to the resturant and that was spotless to all the staff were very polite and the food was great.We would definatly go back as we have paid more than £40.00 in some hotels and they havent had the same standard's as the night owl.It was probably the best nights sleep we had all week.Mart/Pam Freeman.Mansfield.

  • Liked — Quiet clean and friendly
  • Disliked — Although a truck stop they didnt sell a scotland sticker for my van

If you’re looking for a cheap place for an overnight stay to break a journey this is worth considering. If you’re planning a longer stay or you’re into the whole luxury thing, this is probably not the place for you.

Our twin room was small and very basic, but clean, comfortable and quiet. Our toilet/shower was shared with one other room. There is a small shop and a comfortable TV lounge/bar on the ground floor.

  • Liked — Cheap, clean and quiet
  • Disliked — Very basic
