Hello Fatfool, Thank you very much for your 5* review. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us and hope to see you again on your next visit to Barrow. Kind regards

Very accommodating and helpful. Great prices for food and rooms. Car park is a bit of a nuisance being around the back with no direct access, but this is the only complaint. Rooms comfortable with air conditioning and good, clean facilities.
