A family face losing everything after the hotel they ran for more than 40 years has gone on the market.
Have your say
Very sorry to hear the news. I've never stayed at the Cumbria Park Hotel but I ahve attended many receptions and get togethers there. Lovely venue, great staff and welcoming environment.A sad loss in these difficult times.
i went bankrupt 3 yrs ago(owed 20k) and lost everything to the recievers cos i was a partner therefore responsible for all the debt personally a friend who was a director and went bankrupt owing millions got to keep hose,2 big cars,savings,shares everything!! while i feel sorry for theses people who have had this business for all this time im sure they wont be left with nothing.
After reading the comments of Ian H wonder if he has ever run a business.He should remember that the Lowther family created those jobs and have provided employment and training for people in Carlisle for the last 50 years.
During that time they have no doubt gone through some rough times and I would imagine
on occasions paid the staff but have been unable to pay themselves.Unlike the staff there will be no big redundancy payment for them.Without people like the Lowthers there
would few jobs for anyone.I've stayed at the
hotel several times and found it provided an excellent service and I'm sorry to hear of it's predicament.I wish the Lowther family
all the best in the future.
