Halston Aparthotel in Carlisle has launched six new contemporary townhouses in the city centre, in a bid to bring an added edge of luxury to the area.
The company has transformed the upper levels of a former Lloyds Pharmacy building into six self-contained, serviced apartments, complete with access to a 24-hour reception and their own bar and restaurant.
The Halston Aparthotel recently scooped winner of the Self-Catering Provider of the Year award at this year’s Cumbria Tourism awards.
Dominique Harrison, co-owner of The Halston says: “The townhouses are a continuation of the quality guests have come to expect from The Halston as well as an opportunity for more businesses and visitors coming to Carlisle to have a luxury experience. Each Townhouse has been individually furnished to ensure comfort for guests staying one night, a week or a month.”
The opening comes after extensive work on the building and later this summer the ground floor will become home to Yellowjackets, a new bar from the team behind The Lane Bar in Carlisle.
In the autumn, The Halston also plans to rebrand and reopen the former Belted restaurant, also on Warwick Road and there are plans to redevelop the site of the former Lonsdale Cinema too.
As well as accommodation, The Halston has its own bistro Barton’s Yard, several multi-use spaces for events, ceremonies and conferences, Winters Spa and is a fully licensed wedding venue.
