We were after a room on the lakes but ever one we fancied was full. Looking a little further afield, I came upon the Duke of Edinburgh in Barrow In Furness. Reviews looked good and for eighty five pounds, we had room 222, executive suite (lovely) in the attic. We insulated (noise) and superb heating, great big bed, easy chairs and sofa, superb bathroom, beautifully finished and an iron that worked with a clean and serviceable ironing board.Only complaints, and they are very minor, final bill had been overcharged, but very courteously and quickly rectified when I raised this with the receptionist and he price of drinks is perhaps a little on the steep side, after all, London it isn't! We ate out as the only tables available for dinner were in the main bar area as the restaurant was fully booked.We ended up back in the bar for a few night caps by the roaring open log fire, great way to finish a good night off. I WOULD RATE THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH 4.5 and we thoroughly recommend it to one and all.
PS: Breakfast was very good too.
