The hotel is very historic and nice to look at but that's it. There was no one around all evening but all the rooms are full. I booked this room needing wifi only to find it's broken so they say, after I asked if my room will get the wifi I'm told it's rubbish all over the hotel. There's no... More

Goodness this was harsh! The guest is correct - we are a Victorian hotel built in 1860, and our restaurant, function room, lounges, and wonderful staircase are in grandiose Victorian style, with sympathetic décor to match and more than one antique dotted about. If it was a quiet evening we can only apologise - but I can reassure future guests... More

Stayed for one night as a family of 4. Check in was swift and friendly. Our room was spotlessly clean and spacious. We ate in the restaurant which was excellent all round. Breakfast was of a very high standard, with plenty of choice. We will definitely return to this lovely hotel. Thanks

Firstly this is solely my experience and 100% genuine. I have just returned from this lovely hotel and recommend it in this area with no reservations. My room was in the annexe area and was perfect, extremely comfortable, contemporary style with a luxurious bathroom and immaculately clean every day. Well done. I travel a lot and when I discover a... More

We stopped over for one night only, on our way home from a weeks holiday in the Scottish Highlands, to attend a 25th wedding anniversary party at the nearby Barrow Cricket Club. We stayed in the new annex, which was an excellent upgrade and fitted out to a very high standard, super bathroom and quietlly located even though there was... More

After much searching for hotels in Barrow, near to Furness Abbey, we came across The Chetwynde and it has been perfect. It was easy to find and there is a large parking area. The hotel has a certain old world charm with a nice dining room and a comfortable bar area and lounge. We had a room in the new... More

We had a celebratory meal in the restaurant and everything was excellent. The food was well cooked and presented and the service was unhurried but efficient and attentive. The owners and staff made us very welcome and all in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. We didn't stay over this time but in future would probably do so and... More

We stayed or two nights over the Easter weekend in the family room (2 adults, 2 chidren) and had a very pleasant stay. The room was clean and spacious - not especially new in terms of decor but we liked the charm of the hotel - lots of antique furniture fitted the period feel of the property. The staff were... More

I have been in many hotels where I was a couple of minutes late for breakfast but only one where they didn't even offer me some toast. Bit of a blessing anyway the food was dire and the service shoddy

This guest was twenty minutes late for breakfast and accepted that he had been told in his reservation confirmation, on check in, via hotel signage and when he enquired the night before about breakfast times. When I asked the guest to kindly provide constructive feedback about his dining experience (the guest dined both nights he was here), he could not... More
