My husband booked this hotel for a two night stay. We had spent two nights in Scotland and wanted to break the journey home by a couple of nights in The Lake District. As my husband is a Laurel and Hardy fan we chose Ulverston to go and see the museum dedicated to Stan Laurel, who had lived there. The hotel is on the outskirts of the town in an area known as Canal Foot. You do have to pass an industrial estate to get to it, but it is well worth it. We were given an up-grade and had a balcony. The views were amazing and it was so quiet. It is a paradise for bird watchers and walkers. Also other Lake District attractions were within easy reach. We received a very warm welcome on arrival and all staff we encountered were very pleasant and could not do enough for us. The food was exceptional and served in either the bar or restaurant, which overlooked the lovely views. Our room was very clean and had adequate storage. The bathroom looked as though it had been recently refurbished and we had a good supply of lovely fluffy towels (even face cloths), small shampoos etc., The first evening we ate in the restaurant and we had a candelabra with lit candles, which was a nice touch. For me, lots of magazines in a little corner next to the bar, where you could sit on a sofa or chair (our favourite spot in the evening after dining). All in all a thoroughly enjoyable stay in a very relaxed atmosphere.

Room Tip: Definitely rooms that look out towards the water. There is seating on the balcony outside the rooms.

As you approach uni go past the GSK plant (next to teh canal. Its a to industrial. But then you get to the canal foot and are rewarded with a fantastic view tour across the bay. Lots of waders ad sea birds.
We stayed for two nights with our two dogs. We had a room with a balcony looking out across te bay that also provided a way in and out for dogs and luggage.
We dined one evening and the food was excellent. Breakfast is good too with willingness to allow me to take my wife some breakfast in our room one morning.

Dogs walk nearby. Lovely spot.

What kindness, care and generosity!
We arrived at the Bay Horse and were beautifully looked after. Our rooms were delightful and with stunning sea views. Most of all, the kindness of all the staff was paramount. This included making us feel especially welcome and making a delicious dinner with candlelight care.
Every request for help was met with such a generous spirit. The breakfast staff were also brilliant. Again the meal was wonderful and the extra care and thoughtfulness will all the kind touches shone through.
We really enjoyed our stay and managed to see the fascinating Lakeland motor museum nearby.
Thankyou to everyone at the Bay Horse for the kindest welcome and care and it made a joyful adventure. We had been to many hotels and this was the most impressive. The layers of care, thoughtfulness and team were remarkable. We will come again and sing your praises loudly. Outstanding efforts. Thank you .

We decided on a one night stay at The Bay Horse hotel, and what a little gem it is with a view like a post card.We took both our dog and they were most welcome too. I had afternoon coffee with short bread which I can say was the best ever. Audrey at the bar was most helpful and always had a smile, she made our stay, it’s a shame Lynne made it quite obvious to us at breakfast she didn’t like Audrey, that’s our only complaint.but that’s for the management to sort out.
We had a meal in the restaurant and it’s the best meal we’ve had for a long time, my husband had the rib eye steak and he said it was like slicing through butter, absolutely out of this world, then breakfast the choice was phenomenal from porridge to smoked salmon or the good old traditional English breakfast. we would definitely stay here again, thank you.
