My wife and I stopped last night and had a wonderful time. Rooms were spotless and well maintained. All the staff were welcoming and helpful and a credit to the Hotel. We ate in the Hotel last night and had a wonderful meal my wife had steak and I had the steak and baby onion pie both were delicous. Breakfast next morning was a wide choice and came well cooked. Room rates and dinner were very reasonably priced and a lovely place to stop. One tip if you decide to go take the coast road from Ulverston the scenery is breathtaking.

What an enjoyable experience we just had here... The rooms were spotless and well decorated as was the hotel itself... The hotel lobby itself led straight into the public house part which again was spotless and well decorated with loads of beers and lagers on draft...The staff were friendly and hard working and nothing was too much trouble for them..
The hotel was ideally situated in the town centre and only 100m from the towns restaurants and wetherspoons... Only downside is excessive noise from downstairs when live bands are on.. But this didnt take anything away from our stay...

Room Tip: Stay above first two floors above noise from the vault

I was staying in this hotel while visiting Buddhist international retreat nearby and was surprised of the quality of room I had. Last floor room, almost brand new everything, view from window over the city. Very happy. Free parking also included and wi-fi.

I stayed for two nights on a business trip. My room was booked for me so I was not involved in selection of the room.
Overall I was entirely satisfied. Whilst there was nothing to 'blow your socks off' everything was perfectly acceptable. The room was clean and well appointed and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was also clean with a decent shower. The trendy design of the wash basin and tap were such that getting the kettle underneath the tap to fill it was virtually impossible and consideration could be given to providing a small jug for this purpose (even the tall water glasses were awkward to fill).
Wifi was free (or at least provided at no extra cost over and above the room charge) and worked well.
I only ate breakfast in the hotel, which was fine, although on the first morning my poached eggs were a little vinegary.
Parking is free in a dedicated car park across the junction from the hotel. There are two other car parks close to the hotel so it is important to make sure you get the correct one to avoid a ticket (the hotel's car park does have a big sign but I missed it when I first arrived because the sat-nav directed me to the back of the hotel on the basis of the post code. Reception staff give you a ticket to display in the windscreen and it might be annoying to have to walk back to the car with this if the weather is poor so perhaps the hotel could consider providing the option of pre-printing your own parking ticket before arrival via the hotel web-site?
Staff were pleasant and polite.

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.

Room Tip: Take the upgraded room - worth the little bit extra

This hotel has large very clean bedrooms air conditioned on the ground floor and large wet room style bathrooms.It is situated close the railway station.
It also has a bar/resturant attached to it and the vaults which at weekends have live music. There is a good selection real ales and botteled beers, the food is excellent especially the home made pizza's. Thursday is 2 for 1 night on selected food items.
The staff are very good.

Me and my fiancee decided to go on a mini break and decided on Barrow. We arrived to a lovely smiley receptionist and beautiful decorative hallway. Our room was a superior double which was huge clean and just lovely. Bathroom was huge and tea and coffee tray was filled with plenty of items.

We visited the bar for a number of hours on both our nights and found some very friendly chatty staff. Especially Chris and Sam who took their time to go out their way to speak to us and make us feel at ease.

Overall the hotel is lovely and we will definetly be back again soon.
Thanks Louise and Dean
