I travel around the country a lot and stay in a wide variety of hotels and guest houses. Michaelson House is a quiet and welcoming hotel with friendly staff, great food, free parking and Wi-Fi. Good convenient location for exploring Barrow and South Lake District for famiiy or business traveller

Keep in mind that I don't usually bother making reviews, however, I feel that I want to help others avoid the trouble we went through trying to find ALTERNATIVE accomodation. I will also be as brief as possible.

In general: Stinks of damp, feels deserted
Rooms:
-Very dated
-Dirty
-Wall paper falling off
-Mouldy
-Damp
-Smelly
-Wall paper stained yellowish, with what looks like cigarette smoke mixed with damp. This
indicates that it's been left since god knows when.
-Mattress didn't fit on beds
-Beds frames felt like they were about to collapse
-Furniture missing parts

In conclusion, had the feeling of a squat, stay away!

Couple with two children under 12.

Room Tip: Chequers, 2 miles away. More expensive but miles better!

Stayed here for 4 nights back last August and was not overly impressed with the standard of the accommodation. The room was very tired and tatty and wasn't very clean at all. Although the service was good, the food was not at all appealing and to be honest had there been an alternative I would not have stayed for all 4 nights.

The place had the look, smell and feel of an old people's home and I really can't be any more honest than that.

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).
