Spent a great few days during the weekend in this brilliant hotel. We had a lovely superior room with roll top bath. Bed was very comfy and even though we were on the ground floor we couldn't hear any noise from people outside or traffic. We ate in the restaurant two nights in a row and the food was very... More

First time visiting... And to some it up I would say delightful. I paid for executive suite and in advance I emailed the hotel to request a preference for a roll top stand alone bath. I received great communication back informing me that she had allocated me a room with the bath. I arrived at the hotel before check in... More

Always stay at the Duke when in Barrow.Excellent staff,rooms and bar people.Rooms always spotless and the breakfast is top notch (how does the chef always do perfect poached eggs).They may be building more hotels but none of them will beat The Duke.

we found the staff very friendly and helpful. good value for money for a lovely hotel room (which was very clean) with a very comfy bed and modern ambiance! breakfast and service were brilliant, and the bar/cocktail bar get quite busy and serve good drinks.

The hotel was very dark and gloomy in the reception and I wondered what I had go myself into! HOWEVER! The rooms were modern and spacious and the bed was incredibly compfy. We didn't realise we had to book for... More

My standby choice for staying in Barrow is the Duke. Modern rooms with good facilities. The bar has a great array if whiskeys to try and the food is pretty good too. Staff are helpful and knowledgeable of the area and given barrows naval heritage it's a good idea to let them know your new in town, as they can... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night on a quick trip to the lakes. Found this hotel as an inexpensive alternative to a lakeside hotel. Boy did we make a good choice. We opted for the executive room and could not wish for better, the room was large spotless and very comfortable and very quiet. The staff were... More

Had a really disappointing stay. Culminated in the bathroom door being painted in my room leaving strong odour & unable to close door - hotel manager didn't seem to care. Paid £125 a night for single occupancy - stayed 4 nights & very begrudgingly hotel deducted £25 for inconvenience. Very poor customer service - good WiFi & Tesco Express next... More

Firstly, I'm very sorry to read your recent review. We have such poor reviews only on very rare occasions and I felt it important that I respond to the problems highlighted.
