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.

This hotel is on a very busy crossroad, so noisy yet has no double glazing.
Only 1 very slow lift, which broke down.
No residents' lounge, just a breakfast room doubling up as a crowded bar with music in the evening.
Our room was cramped, with torn sheets and dirty carpet.
There was a lot of furniture and other items stacked in the hallways -a clear fire risk.
You have to negotiate the crossroad to get to the car park.
Excellent breakfast and central location..
Pricey for what you are getting.

Needed a hotel close by to south lakes zoo for a birthday surprise getaway.
Couldn't have chosen a better hotel! Staff were very welcoming on arrival, room was spacious and very well presented, the bed was MASSIVE and the bathroom very clean.

Booking on-line was easy and pre-arrival information clear. Friendly check in staff explained we were to be in a newly refurbished room so there may be a few initial problems. Minor 'snagging' details were dealt with quickly. Still a nice room though and Barry on reception was very helpful. We were offered an alternative room for our second night stay, which was a lovely room on the third floor. John on reception sorted this out and, as with the rest of the hotel staff, nothing seemed too much trouble. Nice to see such helpful and dedicated staff. Breakfast brought a pleasant surprise as it was served when hot. I've been to many hotels where sausage, bacon etc is only warm at best but at the Duke it was piping hot. Overall a very pleasant stay, would visit again,

Been trekking over to Barrow on and off for a few years now and in recent times always stay at the Duke. No major differences since last year, but menu seems more ambitious, the beer range has extended and we stayed in one of the brand new rooms which were marvelous. Still an excellent hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms are v nice but if possible ask for one of the brand new ones. Just been completed and...
