Just spent 2 nights and could not have been made to feel more welcome. Rooms were spacious, bit old fashioned but clean. Fresh sheets and towels. Had our 2.5 year old daughter and was catered for perfectly. Parking not the biggest but plenty room in side streets. Nice place to stay and will be back in the near future.

Booked the family-en-suite room - only to arrive and be shoved into a completely different room and then lied to. The hotel owner Janis (who should be renamed Basil) went on to make up some story about as we're only 2 people the family-en-suite I had booked was already occupied...even though I'd already booked it! She then wanted us to... More

Ok so that's a bit of a strange title, but I hadn't booked anywhere in Barrow and arrived to find it full! Luckily we found a room here. Lovely room, very helpful, great breakfast freshly cooked. Janis does a lovely fresh fruit compote with a fruit base, Greek yoghurt and muesli. Then you get a full cooked breakfast that will... More

Janis gave us a lovely greeting, and was happy to listen to the chatter of my two children, who were so excited to be staying in a hotel overnight. We had a Gorgeous Room (No 5 ) which was perfect with its little seperate room throu ajoining doors... More

We arrived on Good Friday, and was greeted by Janis. The room was lovely and was just what me and my partner needed. When it came to breakfast Janis and Steve went out of their way to provide us with whatever we fancied. Not far at all from the town centre, or South Lakes Zoo. I would definitely stay again....

You won't go wrong here with Janis to look after you! Rooms are comfortable and quiet due to the layout of the house. Spotlessly clean in the bedrooms and bathrooms. Breakfasts are really nice - nothing forgotten - eggs how you want them and plenty to choose from. Value for money is excellent compared with more well known budget chains... More
