My sister and I returned to Barrow for the first time in many years. We grew up here and remember the hotel before the refurbishment! We were both impressed at the renovation and facilities including the free parking and the restaurant.
The room was very nicely furnished and soundproofed with a great bathroom. We loved the free Wi-Fi! We had dinner on Saturday night - yes it was busy but the food was freshly prepared, tasty and served by helpful staff. Breakfast on Sunday was a bit more chaotic but fresh coffee and toast was brought when we requested it and the food was hot and tasty.
We'll be back.
