Stayed here overnight on a Victorian weekend sightseeing visit to Ulverston.It is situated practically adjacent to the railway station so we could jump on a train and visit Ulverston which is only three stops away. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean and there was a supply of coffee,tea and biscuits etc. The lighting in the room was a little... More

Staff very helpful and well appointed and clean rooms. Good value for Barrow. Food tasty but not gourmet. Bathroom high spec. Can be noisy on the road side. Best hotel in Barrow centre. Just across the road from the station and walking distance to the dockyard (20 mins).
