We're big fans of Lancaster Brewery and the Sun Hotel in Lancaster. Need to do a review of the Sun Hotel, maybe in a week or so. Anyway, we stayed at the Duke in Barrow for two nights over the Valentines Day weekend. Happily I noticed straight away that they had four Lancaster beers on tap so that was me sorted. The wife was happy as the wine list was at least as long as the Suns. Our room was on the top floor, up the slow but very pretty lift and out along the corridor.A standard room, it had loads of space, a nice modern and expensive looking bathroom, good wifi connectivity and very stylishly presented. The LCD tv was showing its age just a smidgeon but perfectly fine. Apparently ours was one of the original rooms when the hotel relaunched 8 years ago, it was in amazing nick considering that. Pretty much appeared brand new, so congrats to the cleaning people. We dined at the Duke on the first night and enjoyed the food a lot. Looked after by two very smart young ladies (actually the staff here are smarter than the more casually dressed Sun). On the saturday we ventured up into the Lakes. Only 15 minutes and youre in the wilds of the mountains.
Great stay, another Lancaster Brewery treasure.
