“A Hotel i wont visit again.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

The owner is very friendly but to the point where you cant wait to get away from him. The bedroom was ok however the on suite was poor, tiles hanging off around the base of the shower,.
The full English breakfast was very poor, arriving on a side plate (see photo).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

I went here for a 90th. birthday party on the 18th. December. The place was welcoming, organised and the staff attentive. I cannot comment on the rooms or the price of the function and value for money. However it was clean and the buffet more than adequate; the staff were courteous and helpful. They searched the other bar for Croft Original for my mother. The food was excellent and they kept bringing more... and more! Their pies were delicious; from Greens in Barrow apparently.

Well done. I enjoyed it and everyone was happy!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2011

On arrival, first impressions where "what have i been booked into now!" but when i checked in, i found the rooms quite pleasant. The bed was clean, comfortable, the room was quite large and they offered FREE internet access for my laptop and FREE parking. However, the carpets in the room could do with a scrub, especially behind the toilet. The food was very nice, huge portions and the owner was very friendly. I did notice though, the dining room table cloths at tea time still had crumbs on them from breakfast. You have to ask for a front door key when you arrive, as I didn't get one, I queried this with him and then he went into a lecture on how he doesn't get them back. Still, I did get one and I made sure he recieved it back on my departure.
