“can't wait to return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2009

We have stayed many times and are surprised at the rating, so it is time to do our review. We think this is the best place in Ulverston bar none. The welcome is so warm & friendly, the rooms are extremely well maintained & comfortable, but the breakfast is amazing! What a buffet to start with and followed by the best full English you can imagine. No small wonder it is often difficult to make a booking as it is so popular.
Everything in Ulverston is within walking distance, with a pay & display car park 2 mins walk away. Ulverston has so much choice for pubs and restaurants, it's often difficult to choose.

We stayed for one night in August 08.
The owner was very pleasant and the room perfectly adequate.
Very clean room and ensuite.

Perfectly placed in town within walking distance of all pubs and amenities.

The breakfast was excellent with a wide range of fresh fruits and then a lovely fry up. Perfect.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2007

We stayed for 2 nights in September 2007 while we were in the area for our friends' wedding.

This is a great hotel - comfortable quiet rooms with en suite bathrooms, very clean, and right in the town centre just a short walk from the station.

There is also a lovely back garden with lots of seats etc where you can relax and read the paper and so on.

As mentioned elsewhere, the breakfast is superb - huge range and all delicious and fresh.

The couple who run the place are extremely friendly and helpful, and if you consider all these points above, then it really is a bargain for 60 pounds a night for a double room including breakfast.

  • Liked — Friendly service - delicious breakfast
  • Disliked — No complaints!

What a great little hotel - very friendly, nice well-appointed rooms, and - I'm really not exaggerating - a breakfast to shame any 5-star hotel - exquisite English breakfast cooked to order, fresh fruit, fresh bread, ground coffee etc. Blueberries in February!? For £35 a night!?

I was with an opera company and they even accommodated our unusual eating hours - having stayed in so many drab hotels on tour this was such a pleasure. It's a haven.

Stayed February 2007
