We stayed one night at this hotel in Dalton in furness because we were unable to get three nights at the Clarence House. This is a nice enough motel. It has an excellent restaurant and a nice bar. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was in an annexe in a loft conversion which was fine. The bathroom was ok and the furnishings although a bit dated (pine bed and wardrobe) some thought had gone into adding cushions on bed etc. I personally think it is a bit overpriced for what it is but we were on business expenses so that didn't really matter. The bed was really comfortable but we had one really major problem. The noise of an extractor fan from one of the rooms below. When we went back aftern dinner this was going on. we though it would go off after a few minutes but an hour later it was still there and our floor was even vibrating. We asked at reception for it to be turned off. After much messing about with turning off extractors in the wrong room, we finally got some peace after 2 hours and went to bed. Unfortunately it got turned on again at 5 am, this time only a few minutes but it had woken us up. Then it went off again at 6 am and continued. We decided it was time for an early breakfast and to leave. We were tired and had to drive all the way back to Kent. On telling reception that the problem still persisted they gave us just £10 off the bill. I personally would have paid them £10 extra to get rid of the noise and have some sleep and no headache. However, I would heartly recommend the restaurant here if you want a nice meal.
