This hotel has large very clean bedrooms air conditioned on the ground floor and large wet room style bathrooms.It is situated close the railway station. It also has a bar/resturant attached to it and the vaults which at weekends have live music. There is a good selection real ales and botteled beers, the food is excellent especially the home made...

Me and my fiancee decided to go on a mini break and decided on Barrow. We arrived to a lovely smiley receptionist and beautiful decorative hallway. Our room was a superior double which was huge clean and just lovely. Bathroom was huge and tea and coffee tray was filled with plenty of items. We visited the bar for a number... More

Going by the other reviews, I'd booked this hotel at the very last minute hoping for a nice stay but was rather disappointed. The area isn't great, the hotel itself offers subpar service and food and the upkeep requires a lot of improving. The room seemed ok at first, the space was probably the best part of it, but it...

Thanks for your review. A bit surprising to have two "2-star" reviews together after only one other similar review in the last 3 and half years. Must be a coincidence. Responding to your very vague review is difficult. There are no specifics whatsoever contained in your report. One might almost conclude you didn't actually visit. Nevertheless, with regards to the... More

Wonderful hotel,no doubt...but 2 major problems which seem insurmountable! Parking,which is in a public lot is quite a walk away and we received a ticket even though we had a hotel pass, there is no "legal" drop off point for baggage at the hotel and the rooms of which we had 2 new ones , although lovely, need a smart...

Thank you for taking the time to make the review. "Trying very hard... almost there ! But..." would suggest an "average" or "good" score, not "poor". However, I take issue with a number of your incorrect points. Firstly the car park. I think a lot of hotel visitors must not visit many town centre hotels. Very, very few hotels situated... More

Stayed on business. Hotel is convenient from the railway station as it is literally just over the road opposite a Tesco local. My room was an Executive and was a good size with a desk, settee, coffee table and a nice-sized bed with the advantage of a huge modern bathroom and air-conditioning. Furnishings were tasteful and the bed reasonably comfortable.... More

Dont normally write reviews but had to spread the word about this amazing hotel! We visited the Duke of Edinburgh Hotel in July 2014 as part of a birthday weekend getaway for myself and my girlfriend which included a trip to the South Lakes Wild Animal Park. When we got to the hotel we were greeted by a very friendly... More

I thought I had a room at another hotel where I was to attend a wedding. Unfortunately that didn't quite happen and I instead took the last available room at the Duke of Edinburgh Hotel. It is a grand, dark red brick building in a smart part of Abbey Road close to the train station. It had its own car... More

Stayed for two nights and was pleased with the room and also the dining. Staff were pleasant and helpful at all times. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to anyone else looking for a place in Barrow.

For a last minute booking this hotel was an excellent stay for the night! Room was spacious (and this was the standard room) and the bed could easily fit three people. Friendly staff and the room included a full breakfast and wifi which easily makes this a better choice than the local Travelodge or Premier Inn. My only issue would... More
