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.

Came here for my husbands 30th for a meal with 18 friends/family members. Service was quick, beautiful food and everyone enjoyed with clean plates. Asked if we could have my husbands birthday cake and came with knife and plates so didn't need to order a pudding. Staff bet friendly welcoming. Cant wait to return

This was a belated Valentine's break and although Barrow in itself isn't the most romantic of towns a stay at the Duke was well worth the trip. We stayed in an executive suite which was spacious and well decorated. The bathroom was contemporary yet had hints of Victorian grandeur with the roll top bath. The hotel itself maintains that balance... More

I stayed in the executive suite 314 on the top floor. Could not fault it; it was clean, luxurious and exactly what I would expect for the price. The evening meal was average but this was reflected in the price. The breakfast was lovely with a good buffet choice and a wide range of well cooked hot food. The staff... More

Not only did we enjoy a comfortable, well equipped hotel room, but we were also pleasantly surprised to find an excellent real ale bar on the premises. We returned to the same bar in the morning, and resisted the temptation to have another pint of Lancaster Brewery beer in favour of a full English breakfast which was just the job... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend on Valentine's day. Didn't really think to much of the hotel when we first pulled up but that all soon changed. The hotel is lovely inside and had the original wood stair case in and a nice glass elevator so as not to take away from looks of and feel of the building. The rooms... More

This is by far the nicest place to stay in Barrow. It is located between the Train station and the town centre and also offers a quality breakfast. I have eaten lunch in the restaurant a few times and the food is good also.

My fiancé and I have just returned from a valentines break here and could not fault the hotel or restaurant! The rooms are very modern and comfortable, and the staff are very friendly! We would definitely recommend this hotel!

My husband and I spent a night here as we were on a night out in Barrow and the last train home was too early! We were very impressed by the quality of the hotel. A welcoming receptionist and spacious yet cosy reception. Our room was a good size, a lovely big comfortable bed and plenty of tea and coffee.... More

Service was excellent a young girl with dark hair served us and she was so polite,helpful and took attention to detail and always had a smile on her face. Best food ever and for a three course meal for me and my husband cost us £36 as the... More
