Got a great deal here for the bank holiday weekend, far cheaper than staying further into the lakes, only a 45 minute drive from Windermere. The staff are all lovely and helpful, there is a lift and the room itself was very modern and clean. Only issue with the room was it was incredibly hot on arrival but the radiators...

I stayed at this hotel with work . Rooms have all you need and are clean. Breakfast is good and is available from 6:30am which is great if you work early. Staff are friendly and professional. Parking is right outside the hotel and free after 6pm. The hotel has two bars one of which is a sports bar showing sky...

I haven't been to Barrow-in-Furness on business for some years but used the Imperial everytime. It was only natural that on my return I used it again regardless of the reviews on here. Barrow is a working town and this hotel is ideally located for all town amenities and the dockyard. The rooms are clean and tidy and the staff...

This hotel really needs to buck up its ideas. I stayed 5 nights - bedding not changed once and I'm pretty sure the room wasn't cleaned at all...... items on the floor in the halls when I checked in were still there when I checked out . Breakfast was ok apart from the fact you eat in near darkness as...

A group of 12 of us joined around 150 at the 15 December party night Like previous reviewers, I agree that the hotel management (not staff - they worked their butts off) need to look themselves in the mirror as some of the basics were simply not in place. To run out of one type of lager and to run...

For the price of a Travelodge, we booked this room last second. All things considered, it was not a disappointment. For £50 a night, we got a decent room, nicely decorated, warm, clean, and a hot breakfast every morning. The hotel is a 45 minute drive to Lake Windermere, in an... interesting town. The views are, well, either some roofs...
