I am a regular business traveler to this hotel which has made steady strides since its opening. Its location in downtown Barrow is perfect for business with BAE Systems and there are numerous restaurants, pubs and stores within a short walk of the hotel. It has a very pleasant pub and restaurant on the premises. Its rooms are quirky – some much nicer and more user friendly than others. Must warn against bringing the family as their two “family rooms” really are very tight and not particularly comfortable. Staff is mostly friendly and their breakfast is good. For some reason, the hotel has consistent problems with the free wireless Internet.

Bought by Lancaster Brewery in 2006, the Duke has been completely reinvented and is now a luxury, town centre hotel with forty two en-suite rooms/suites, a stylish cask ale bar, resident's dining lounge and stunning cocktail/restaurant cellar bar. The hotel bedrooms include flat screen televisions, Egyptian cotton linen/towels, free wifi, over-sized beds, room service and contemporary bathrooms. The new Vaults Restaurant and Cocktail bar opened in 2014 and is a beautiful, modern venue developed from the Duke's own World War Two air raid shelter cellar. The Duke of Edinburgh Hotel is located in the heart of Barrow, 100 yards from the train station, a couple of minutes walk to the town centre, accessible for the Lake District by train or car and less than 5 miles from South Lakes Safari Zoo. ... more less
