Stayed for just one night but staff very friendly. Room very nice, clean and modern. Would recommend to anyone to stay here. Breakfast was self service and plentiful but quality of sausages could be better. Very convenient location next to train station but without the noise.

Probably the best place to stay in Barrow. It is very handy to the railway station and the center of town, just a couple of minutes walk to either. I rode the train from Carlisle down the Cumbrian coast, also highly recommended. At the station just turn left a walk along the car park to the first road intersection and... More

Stayed here with work recently on a business trip. Upon arrival, the staff were attentive, professional and friendly. Nothing was too much. The lady we checked in with in reception and the staff in the bar/restaurant were exceptional. The rooms are superb, clean and fairly large with great facilities. The evening was quiet in the rooms and the beds made... More

We stayed only 1 night. The room that we were allocated wasn't suitable because our son is in a wheelchair. The duty manager Tara found us another room, Nothing was to much trouble.
