Me and my husband stayed for the weekend in an executive room which was a nice room but lacked something to make it executive to be honest. You couldn't open the windows and there was no extractor fan in the bathroom. Wasn't worth what we paid but it was a nice room. Breakfast was a bit of a let down... More

Great hotel, clean with spacious rooms. Breakfast included which is cooked to order. Located on the High Street in the centre of Barrow. Parking is available over the road which the Hotel provide a permit for. Would definitely stay if returning to Barrow-in-Furness.

Booked to stay in a double room for the weekend and found it very pleasant. The room was in the newer attic part and was so clean and quirky. There was no noise at all from the bar downstairs and the whole.place is decorated to a high standard whilst keeping its original character. The bar and restaurant are nice and... More

We had a meal in the downstairs restaurant/cocktail bar on the evening and the food was amazing, as well as the atmosphere being perfect for us. Breakfast was included in the room, and there...

We Booked a last minute weekend here to visit the lakes, very reasonable rates. The room was an executive Double and we couldn't fault it. One of the most comfortable hotel beds that I have slept in, breakfast is excellent. We didn't use the restaurant as we dined out so can't comment on that. Aircon in the room was excellent... More

Nice to see Barrow getting its act together. This hotel really surprised me. We stayed for one night at the end of July and I've got to say really enjoyed it. The staff at reception were really helpful and genuinely friendly, the bar is modern and light with a nice atmosphere and the breakfast was of a good standard. However... More

When we arrived i walked into the room and it looked nothing like the photos online. I was rather dissapointed to be honest and it... More

We stayed at the hotel for one night whilst attending a nearby wedding. Room was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately we had frosted windows so no view but we didn't spend much time in the room so that didn't matter to us. Breakfast was good apart from the toast which took an age to arrive (had been served and almost finished... More
