Two colleagues enjoyed their stay, I had an issue with a shower, friendly place , easy reach of Barrow and Dalton in Furness, The Hotel has a good chef the food is good , the hotel is an traditional family run type, so its quite informal but formal.

Stayed here for three nights due to working in the area. Friendly owner (over friendly most times) on arrival but it went downhill from there. It seemed like Bates Motel from the film Phsyco with mother always pottering about in the background. The room was very old and slightly smelly and in dire need of a makeover. Shower had hardly...

The.breakfasts and dinners were excellent, and the proprietor was very helpful and a great source of local stories.

Owner called us up 30 mins after booking and told us to come ASAP as reception was not 24 hours! Told him we'd only just booked and were having a bite to eat. Had to really knock when...

This will be my first online review, I felt the need to warn others. First impressions, not good, the driveway was very poorly maintained, full of deep pot holes, obviously not good for your car but it was the only way to get to their car park.
