This is a fairly average sort of place. My only advice is don't give them your email address unless you want to receive spam emails from facebook. There are some better alternatives nearby such as the Abbet House and in the end, if you are resigned to stay in Barrow then you really should find a decent hotel to make the experience bearable

Just returned from a stay at Lisdoonie hotel and was very impressed with the hotel and value for money. If your looking for an inexpensive hotel to stay in Barrow this is the place for you. Room was lovely and warm and spotlessly clean, bed was very comfy with fresh smelling bed linen. Bathroom was bright and smelled fresh and had a good shower over the bath with lovely big fresh fluffy towels and very nice shower gels ,shampoo and handwash were supplied too. Tea and coffee making facilities with biscuits were available in room and lots more extras than was expected for the price.Staff were all lovely friendly and helpful with big smiles on their faces. We were at a function which we all enjoyed and the food was superb and plentiful with offers of extras for each course.Breakfast was delicious,bacon and sausage were both very tasty-well done to all.

Liked my stay here, clean, comfortable and really friendly staff. Nice quiet room, good breakfast. Walked across the road to the Strawberry pub and enjoyed that. Also went into Barrow to the Jade Chinese buffet. Will return.

My wife and I visited the Lisdoonie Hotel for a weekend in Spetember to go to the SOuth Lakes Wildlife Park in Dalton-in-Furness, a neighbouring village.

We checked in around 6:15pm and i have to give credit to the man on the reception desk as it was a very swift check-in. Payment was made on leaving the hotel.

We found our way to our room, via a few lfights of stairs and landings. We were greeted by a room which was a throw back to the 70's. The carpet and decro was dated but on the plus side was clean. There was also a TV in the room ,although small, and an ensuite bathroom.

I searched umpteen hotel sites and trsut me priced at £52 a night this represents one of the best rates in the south lakes area, so this has to be remembered when reading my review.

The breakfast was adequate, with the option of a cooked breakfast, which wa shome cooked by one of the owners of the hotel. I do not know her name but all i will say is that she was a bit surly and our presence in the hotel almost seemed a hidnerence to her. We heard her, when asked about how many rooms they had there.

"12, but at the moment that feels like 12 too many. "

Better a bit of work to do than 12 empty rooms i would think.

On the negative side then, room basic, dated and quite cold
positive quite large, ensutie faciltiies, digital tv

breakfast negative- cooked breakfast not self service, surly staff only available for an hour each morning.
positives- included in the price, option of cooked breakfast

location negatvies on outskirts of Barrow , so be preapred for a mile walk to the town centre and back,
positive, close to a family friendly pub
close to the South Lakes Wildlife Park (4 miles)

Overall a reaosanble stay but, its limitations are reflected in the price.

Room Tip: Be mindful so disabled facilties at hotel, no lift to guest rooms

I stay in the Barrow area a lot on business, and have stayed at this hotel many times, i say its a hotel it is more like a home from home, the staff will always stop and have a chat, the rooms are more like a guest house than a hotel, its in need of modernisation but always clean and comfortable. the chef's specials each night are good and the potions are LARGE, and with a couple days notice Dave (Chef) will cook you a meal of your choice, there is a nice public house on the other side of the road "The Strawberry" which always lively.

I stayed in the lisdoonie hotel while I attended a wedding. The rooms are perfect for what you need the wedding reception was well put together with the tables and decor of the main room looking amazing it made the bride and grooms day a great one. The staff are friendly and are always there to help you. The food that was prepared for the wedding was beautiful I couldn't fault it one bit. The choice of breakfast was great a real good selection of cooked breakfast cereal or fruit..etc.

I attended a wedding there, and stayed in a single room. The staff were more than friendly, really accommodating.The main hall was perfect for the wedding, the tables looked excellent when dressed and the room turned into a dance floor later on. There are two bars available to use as well. Breakfast was tasty and offered a variety of items. Diddn't have chance to use room service, the hotel was perfect for the wedding and accommadated all the guests, brilliant stay and welcoming staff, what else could you do in Barrow? I have no idea, Don't be put off by the decor, it really is value for money :)
One more thing, the room sizes for families are great, nice big rooms!
