“Good value for money”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Booked in by work during a business trip to Barrow. Stayed on the first floor which is lucky because the lift is always out of order. The rooms are clean, tidy with lovely bedding and fresh fluffy towels. Tea and coffee facilities are below the tv in a cupboard and the rooms benefit from free wifi. Breakfast is really good and Elaine always gives a warm welcome and ensures that your order is correct and prompt. Evening meals can be taken in the restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel, it is an Italian restaurant which serves good food at a reasonable price. The only criticism is that the rooms can be a bit on the small side (especially the bathroom), although for sleeping this isn't a problem, and they are starting to show signs of a little wear and tear (guess that's due to the popularity of the hotel). Lastly the parking can be a bit tight if your arrive later in the day. Overall this a great hotel that provides what you require at good value for money.

Room Tip: Apparently room 105 is larger and has a jacuzzi bath.

We stayed at the majestic during the first bank holiday weekend in may 2013 for two nights. We got a cracking deal so it was a no brainer for the money and right in the centre of town.
Positives
Friendly staff
Good breakfast
Centre of town location
Free parking
Great value for money
Nice towels
Noted that their restaurant was very busy in the evening (though we didn't eat there)

Negatives
Very dated and in real need of some renovating/updating
Bathroom in our room was very small
City centre location may not suit some due to noise from the local nightlife (didn't bother us though)

Definetly better value and more character than the local travelodge so if value is what you are after you can't go far wrong.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front overlook the roundabout and nightlife.

Stayed in this hotel for two nights and thought it was excellent value for money, Found the staff very friendly and helpful, The rooms were lovely and clean, nice white fluffy towels Tea and coffee facilitys, Comfy bed although we did find this a small double, lovely clean bathroom, the down side to the room was that we were on the 3rd floor and the lift was broken but kept us fit! also our room was at the back of the hotel so we heard the church clock strike every 15minutes, also the couple we traveled with there room was on the front of the hotel and unfortunatly they had the noise of the night club customers leaving. The breakfasts were excelent, would stay at this hotel again as its value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter

Stayed for three nights while doing the Coniston to Barrow walk. My friend and I stayed in a family room,cannot fault the value for money. The cleaners were so nice and friendly,on the Sunday when we were in agony after they walk,they left us lots of extra teabags and milk,so a HUGE thank you to them. All the staff are really helpful and friendly. The food in Francesca's is nice,and good value. The breakfast was fine,lots of choice and served with a smile.
I would 100% stay here again. The only negatives I have is,we were on the second floor and the lift was out of order,which made for rather painful trips up and down the stairs after a 23 mile walk, also the clock outside is annoying. (I know they can't do anything about it but....) But I would stay here again,definite value for money.

Typicsl 'white van man' hotel with inexpensive rooms, but pretty basic with old fashioned single glazing.

The lift is broken, so avoid the third floor if you have lots of luggage!

The rooms are stuffy with the only ventilation via the old fashioned single glazed windows. However, when the 'nightclub' kicks off at midnight until well past 3 am, opening a window isnt an option! Having said that, closing the windows does little to drown out the 'boom boom' and patrons outside the nightclub shouting & swearing until well past 3am.

Evening meals are nice in the Italian themed restaurant, however breakfast is dire affair.

If your looking for a good nights sleep, I'd avoid.

Stayed for 1 night with my husband on a sat night. The hotel is located in the town centre and plenty of free parking. Staff were pleasant, but service was slow at times. This was especially so at breakfast. Waited 15mins to get our order taken. However, when it did finally arrive it was really good! Great quality, portion size and taste. It was a moderately warm day outside c15 degrees, and the hotel was so warm and stuffy inside. Some of the radiators were on the corridors which was bizarre. Everywhere was hot, and I didn't see 1 open window! Mainly because they couldn't ope. Our room was hot, and we could only open the window an inch. My parents had a room that was stifling hotel, and the windows didnt open at all. luckily, the hotel moved them, and they got a much cooler room with windows that would open. This hotel will be like a sauna in the summer! Our room was clean, spacious and a modern new bathroom! For £40 we thought it was excellent value, but the hot atmosphere and slow service let it down, so I would give it a good! I don't think we would stay again, as we prefer another hotel in Barrow.
