My partner and I had arranged to visit the South Lakes Animal Zoo on the 21st June and I took the task of booking the hotel.
I searched online and came across TDOE. The reviews sees good and the price and pictures looked great.
We arrived on the Friday and were checked in by a very helpful lady behind reception. She explained everything wonderfully as we hadn't been before.
The room was brilliant and had a large plat screen Tv and DVD player on the wall, kettle, ironing board and iron, hair dryer and toiletries. The bathroom was stunning and featured a large double shower.
The bed was very comfy and we had plenty of space within the room.
We were concerned about parking but that was available to hotel guests at no extra cost right across the road.
Breakfast was included in the price and consisted of cereals, croissants, cold meats, yoghurt, fruit, juice and hot beverages which you could help yourself to and then a waitress came to take your order for hot breakfasts including things such as eggs benedict, smoked salmon and of course the full English. We couldn't ask for more.
The bar in the hotel was very chic and friendly and we enjoyed having several drinks down there on the Saturday night as there didn't se to be much of a night life around apart from the local wetherspoons 2 minutes down the road which after calling in there in the afternoon, didn't se up to much other than the football and middle aged men drinking all day.
Would definitely stay in this hotel again if we were to visit barrow.
