stayed here with my wife when we visited the nearby South lakes wild animal park, was pleasantly surprised. the rooms were spacious and clean. there was no evening meal due to a wedding, however a pub/restaurant is about 5-10 mins walking away. breakfast was plentiful. overall a good stay, i will stay here again.

Booked Chetwynde hotel for our wedding as we liked the option of moving between the function room, lounge and gardens. We definitely made the right decision. Jason and the team decorated the room beautifully. From start to finish the day ran smoothly in a relaxed fashion. Food was excellent and bedroom spacious and comfortable. We couldn't have asked for any... More

We stayed here for two nights, either side of a large family gathering and celebration hosted by the hotel. Our room was on the second (top) floor. There is no lift but the staff were obliging with an immediate offer to carry bags up. The room was very comfortable with a view to the front of the hotel over a... More

The staff, the rooms and the food could not be faulted - we stayed two nights and ordered a buffet on the Sunday afternoon which was excellent and John, who looked after us, was very helpful and pleasant. All of the staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble - the rooms were very clean and there were many... More

Stayed here as working in Barrow the next day. Plenty car parking. Lovely spacious clean room with Wifi. Comfortable bed and a peaceful sleep. I had dinner in the restaurant which was very nice. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and delicious. I would highly recommend this hotel and the restaurant

I stayed for 1 night in the annex, excellent facilities, very friendly staff, the bar was open as late as you wanted, only a taxi ride from the centre where you have a large choice of restaurants and bars to choose from. very nice freshly cooked breakfast, will definitely stay again.

Wow what can I say ... thank you for such a lovely wedding experience. We had the ceremony and day/evening receptions. Staff were cheerful and attentive. The day went so smoothly and the atmosphere was homely and relaxed throughout the day. Only downside was even meal. Staff came round serving food but as different groups were in and out of... More

Thanks Paula for the (most part) of the review - the staff appreciated your praise, thank you card and tip. We hear you are wanting to potentially book a christening with us in summer. We are however quite surprised at your comments, on a public forum, about the evening buffet. When guests do go outside during service it is often... More
