“Lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2008

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.

  • Liked — Everything!
  • Disliked — The stairs - not good at daft o'clock in the morning after a night on the town :-(

Thanks for the very positive comments. I am pleased to inform you that our glass lift was installed in mid December and offers access to all three floors. A blessing for all concerned !
