Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stayed for 4 days, very conveniently located. From the second you go through the front entrance you can see the cleanliness of this hotel. Spotless everywhere you look. All of the staff are super friendly, always having the time to pass the time of day with you. Very disabled friendly. Breakfast was a help yourself buffet style. Apart from running out of butter for 2 mornings everything was totally as expected. We did eat one evening at hotel, quite a basic menu, but served fast, hot and tasty. Next time in Barrow we will definitely stay here again

I visited with my 3 year old son for a little treat lunch on a recent Friday afternoon. I ordered a ham and cheese panini with chips - it was lovely. Very filling and full of flavour. For my little boy, I got a ham and cheese sandwich with crisps from the light bites section of the menu. What an amazing deal! It was a feast for him (I tried some so he didn’t get too full)! We both loved it. The service was brilliant, the staff even gave him a chocolate bar just before we left which was a lovely touch. We will certainly return. Shout out to Ryan, Tegan, Courtney and Rachel. Ryan’s customer service was especially fab! Thanks guys.

First time been for drinks at this hotel...Courtney was lovely from the minute we walked in until the moment we left. Very attentive, she'll go far in your business as I could see how much she loves working there which is refreshing to see. I'll definitely be back again, but next time for food too.

Our stay at Holiday Inn Express Barrow-in-Furness has been fantastic. Hattie and all other staff members were very friendly, positive and helpful. The hotel and rooms are kept very clean. I would highly recommend this hotel when visiting Lake District as it is very convenient and offers a comfortable stay.

Ryan, Tegan, Rachel and Courtney were brilliant all week as we brought a group of children in for lunch from our Holiday Activity club. The places were always ready and reserved. They greeted the children enthusiastically and made them feel welcome. The food was excellent. Nutritious but totally 'kid friendly'...baked potatoes, pizza and salad, loads of good quality fresh fruit. Going for lunch at the Holiday Inn is a real treat for most of our children who come from households facing financial difficulties. Its often the first time they've eaten in a restaurant so the social skills they're learning are invaluable. They sometimes get it wrong but your staff are so patient and understanding and always so friendly.

Booked for a corporate event for 2 consecutive days, Michelle the coordinator & other members of the hospitality staff were extremely helpful. Nothing was too much, there was relevant equipment in the room, easy to use projector, unlimited tea/coffee & nibbles. Lunch provided was lovely, on time & a generous amount. Will recommend to other colleagues to use & will definitely use again!
