“A Mothers Day lunch to remember”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Congratulations to Lesley and her warm, friendly, attentive staff, they helped to make our visit very special. We enjoyed every morsal of our 3 course lunch, sat at a lovely table with such very special views that today almost took my breath away,congratulations to Chef and his kitchen staff, our meal not only tasted superb it was presented beautifully also, thank you.
I have read from other reviews criticism of the near bye Factory,the area has a lovely green open aspect and appears to be very well looked after, a very beautiful place encircling a quirky, like no other Jewel "The Bay Horse".

Lovely to be back at one of our favourite places for a two night midweek stay. We resolved to try not to eat so much this time and failed again ! The food is consistently very good without any pretence of fine dining. Breakfast is wonderful and very difficult to think of anywhere that can improve on Bob's terrific cooked meal. The few people staying in the hotel all ate early in the morning and we had the pleasure of having breakfast alone in the conservatory overlooking the Leven Estuary. A wonderful view, which draws us back here 2 or 3 times a year. Service as ever was prompt and attentive. Always interesting when staying in good well managed hotels to see that there are very few staff changes over the years - and here is one of them ! Already looking forward to our next visit in August !

Room Tip: Go for a room overlooking the estuary.

This is a very hospitable establishment. Every member of staff is attentive but understanding. The accommodation is just right - comfortable well appointed rooms with fantastic views across the estuary. The food is fantastic with generous portions and thoughtful combinations. Breakfast is especially good, unusually offering both kidneys and white pudding.

Some reviewers have criticised the place for being old fashioned. It is, but it is not worn and tired. It's actually quite interesting to have a slightly different model. And none of the things that matter are old fashioned - wifi is perfect for example.

Room Tip: Sea view worth it

I travelled further than others attending a lunch for about 12 people at the Bay Horse Hotel. Our group was made very welcome and all enjoyed the food from a varied menu. I had opted to stay overnight and found the staff extremely helpful and without requesting, a table was reserved for me by the fire for my evening 'light bite'. Being on my own I greatly appreciated this kind gesture. The breakfast platter was amazing and definitely set me up for the day exploring Cumbria. The views across Morecambe Bay from my room and from the dining room were stunning.

A welcoming hotel at Canal Foot with tremendous views of the Leven Estuary and the high tides rushing in. Excellent meals of substance. Intend to work through the menu this year. The service is excellent and the bar very cosy with a log fire caring my lit.

his hotel was hands down the best place we have ever stayed. A perfect service (special thanks to Katine!) I can only praise our stay here. We will definitely be returning! You will not be dissapointed in any sense! Both breakfast and dinner were excellent. The location and the sea views are superb.

Stayed here for one night. It's on the estuary. If you're lucky you'll hear and see the bore as it rushes in. Great pub food by a warming fire. Good local beers too. Comfortable if rather dated bedrooms. Loads of hot water. Pleasant sunny conservatory where breakfast is served. It does good lunches as well. If you go for a stroll then the old canal is a must.
