This has got to be THE hotel in Barrow!! Bedrooms are large, beds comfy & bathrooms fab!!
However, 2 little probs though ... (1) no lift so instead of bringing 1 big suitcase = too heavy bring 2 smaller suitcases ESPECIALLY if you end up on the 3rd floor! The stairs are a killer! HOPEFULLY, the lift will be installed soon (2) if you are a light sleeper, try & get a room at the back of the building away from the main road. The windows are single glazed & so you hear all the traffic from the road outside.
Food is fabulous! Breakfasts are wonderful - sets you up for the day & won't need any lunch!
Free car park too - just get a permit from Reception to park in the car park just across the road.
