My company booked me in here - and was my first time in Barrow. I am due to be here for several weeks over the next few months.
Id often stay in national brands - but the photos looked good here.
The hotel has clearly had some money spent on it. The large bar area was great, and I found in the evenings that the locals and residents mixed well, and I felt quite relaxed sitting there in the evenings.
I saw some people had mentioned the Wifi, but this I was told had all been recently upgraded and I found it fine in the bar and my room.
The evening meals were great - I'd recommend the Calamari, and the Gammon!
Staff were all very helpful and attentive - and had the feel of a family run hotel with all staff seeming to enjoy their jobs and happy to assist.
I had a couple of very early starts and they were happy to make a packed lunch for me free of charge, which is pretty rare.
I think they seem pretty full, which is no surprise - it was full when I was there - and I look forward to my next stay there. I am told a large screen is going in next month for sporting events and a residents lounge is going in, which will add to it further.
