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. We were given a bottle of wine as an apology, Tara tried just about every taxi company in Barrow to get us a wheelchair accessible vehicle. The... More
