Just spent the last two nights here and I can honestly say we thoroughly enjoyed it. I was in room 15 which was very comfortable and nice and quiet. The breakfast was excellent and the friendly staff made me feel right at home. Next time I'm in Barrow I will be staying here! Excellent!

I stayed here with some friends for a couple of nights during our road-trip from Birmingham - Lake District - Scotland and then Ireland. Our two nights here was one of the highlights of the entire trip. The room was extremely cosy and so reasonably priced. Linda and her staff are friendly and helpful, and so warm. We met some...

Ok if you want wonderful views of the lakes you don't get that here- BUT the staff & the breakfast is fab & the 9 & 18 year old I travelled with wanted to bring the beds home as so comfortable. We stopped in a room for 5- so much space in room 12 a family of 5 would have... More

We've stayed two nights, be-careful if you don't like noise and stay during a Friday or Saturday night, because there is a Pub underneath with live karaoke. Comfortable and spacious bedrooms, very clean and pleasant. Free parking spaces available, Wi-fi was not working and very good breakfast. Not the most amazing staff I've met but general ok.

The Ambrose is an old pub that's been converted. Apparently it used to be a kids drinking venue, so a bit rough. The area is just 10 mins walk from town. It feels a little rough. There are only 2 car parking spots, although you can leave your car on the road as long as you move it by 10am.... More

Inside smelt old and musty although looks clean, had to go find another hotel. Staff unhelpful and dispite not staying there, they said... More

I went there with my family and we really enjoyed our stay. The only thing is that I was there with my grandparents and our room was at the third floor and it was a bit difficult for them to reach the room. Also, I couldn't reach the wifi from that room as well. For all the rest the hotel... More
