We have just returned home from a mini break at The Barrowfield with Daish's.
On the plus side the food was good, and Paul our waiter was great and very entertaining,
The rest - the beds were harder than ironing boards, plenty of tea and coffee in the room but very little milk, Our windows either had to be wide open or not at all, and in the bathroom we had to perch it open with a cup. Hot water in the bathroom did not get hot until we had to run it for twenty minutes, and the walk in shower was a very slow piddle, I ended up hosing myself down withe the shower hose after taking the shower head off. The tv was very small and like a small blob attached to the ceiling. We asked for a twin room and ended up with a double bed and a childs bed. The room also had ONE plug, as everything else electrical seemed to be wired into the wall. Their is also NO coat hooks. We asked to swap rooms twice a day for the first three days (we were their for four), was was told they were fully booked. Every time we asked fat reception for someone to fix the window, they said they would be up 'in a minute' an dof course they never did come at all. The day trips they offered were good and priced well, but on picking up people after each drop off they didn't seem to check we were all back on the coach. Weather was good for mid September, bus stops close by, entertainment was good but a little bit rude as the evening went on. A reasonable hotel, but needs bringing into the 21st century.
