First the good bit: Breakfast was well cooked, served quickly, and with a smile from our waitress. The hotel (I'll come back to this word later...), was clean and adequate. As part of a large group some of us had nice, recently renovated rooms whilst other rooms seemed a bit careworn still.
Our jacuzzi's plug didn't fit and we had half a shower curtain. The wifi was good.
But.... woe betide anyone that wakes up the proprietor at the ungodly hour of 10.45pm having locked their key in their room and needing a spare, we were informed that this wasn't a 24 hour hotel, and made to feel we should have spent the night on the landing.
It was festival night in Ulverston, but not for everyone. The pub opposite was noisy til late, and our host was obviously not in the mood, Service with a smile? Our survey says... 0/10.

Central Ulverston is home to numerous shops and pubs, boutique and general, many of which are located on the stone paved main street.
