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

I stayed at the hotel at short notice due to work, although I ended up moving room each day the hotel staff made sure my belongings were moved without any hassle. The family room is definitely one to recommend and the food in the restaurant was great

Really nice hotel and the staff were all pleasant and friendly. Our superior room was lovely and the bathroom was amazing. At £85 for bed and breakfast we felt that it was also great value for money. Good breakfast choice that is served at your table and not a help yourself buffet. Highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Duke of Edinburgh in one of their executive doubles for a special birthday. The room was immaculately decorated with a beautiful en-suite bathroom. The reception staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble which made our stay just perfect.

A short but enjoyable stay, friendly staff on arrival and throughout my stay. Room was large and well appointed, the bathroom equally so. Although it would have been nice to be able to turn the radiator in the room off, as it was quite warm. Food and drink in the restaurant was good and reasonably priced. Breakfast good also. Will...

Hotel was lovely as were the rooms. Breakfast was a bit of a let down and we were refused dinner as they had double booked tables for non hotel residents on Easter Friday which we thought was appalling. I mean what hotel doesn't cater for there own quests before anyone else?

Could not fault this is hotel, from the gorgeous wood panelling on the stairway, the fantastic bar, friendly staff and the most beautiful and luxurious room - all at excellent rates. Railway station and hotel car park just across the road, very short walk to centre of town.
