It is difficult to fault this Barrow Guest House. It is not a 5 or 4 star Hotel, but neither does it present itself as such.
It does present itself as clearly in the top 10% of the 3 star ETB Guest House hospitality area it operates in.
Spotlessly clean. Nicely decorated rooms with a touch of style. Comfortable bed. Good strong walk in electric shower that does the job well. Big towels. Nice touches in the room. Freeview TV that works. Comfortable and welcoming.
Wi-Fi for free that works. Good fresh breakfast with quality ingredients. Great Coffee. Big Screen TV "lounge" off the dining room. Private Car Park.
Friendly and informal owners who work hard to ensure your stay is A1. Obviously much appreciated by regulars. I would rate this 4 star ETB easily, they are currently 3 star , but they probably do not tick some of the 4 star ETB boxes such as "matching wooden coat hangers". They tick all the ones I would value.
Could I improve? Not a lot. It is a good walk to the town centre, I would advise walking to the town and a £4 taxi back, perhaps a deal could be done by the owners with a local taxi co or even just guests supplied with a taxi card to call. En suite - little sachets provided rather than little soaps, I think a mix of both is better, or handwash bottles and soaps. External signage is poor, dull and suggests a lower grade than they supply, just advice to the owners, but advice to customers not to be put off.
Top notch, value, reliable Guest house, bearing 3 stars, but worthy of 4.
