A hidden treasure on the Furness Peninsula. I highly recommend The Chetwynde for the lovely, period decor and great service - all the staff we spoke to were so cheerful, friendly and helpful I think we met 3 generations of the owner's family and they were all equally gifted at being both friendly and professional. The rooms are spotless and...

Nice hotel with a very warm welcome from all the staff. There are 2 parts to the hotel, the original building and a more modern annex. Both where well looked after and the room in the new bit was excellent.

Stayed two nights for work and it was a really lovely stay. Staff very friendly and hospitable. Rooms are big with comfy beds and everything you need (including biscuits which not all hotels provide anymore so top marks there!). Books on shelves in the hallway and daily newspapers downstairs. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Try the salmon or curry....

Annex superior double: Lovely spacious room, good facilities, clean, comfortable, great sleep. We were staying when there was a wedding on, the restaurant was shut to other guests but we booked in to restaurant down the road and walked 10 mins to it. Breakfast served as normal could have been a slightly bigger full english but otherwise all good

I can't speak highly enough of this little hotel/ B and B in Barrow-in-Furness. It was the perfect base for our visit. It was comfortable, quiet, elegant, under-stated, exquisitely furnished with good antiques, and extremely personal. Amelia, who was I think the manager while we were there,was genuine, lovely, and helpful. The food was beautiful - top quality local ingredients,...

We stayed here after another hotel badly let us down. Our party was made up of my husband and I, my mother-in-law and our 7-month old baby. We were going to a party and my mother-in-law had kindly offered to travel with us to look after our young baby nearby. We wanted a friendly and comfortable hotel where my husband's...

We were most impressed with the level of service - the manager was especially helpful. We have stayed in hotels worldwide and the care given to our party here was the best we have ever experienced. Any problems were dealt with promptly, pleasantly and efficiently. The hotel is clean, and homely, as well as in a convenient, quiet location.

Pros- Lovely clean hotel, spacious rooms provided with everything one needs during the stay. Clean towels, lines, comfortable bed, tea and...
