Positive Reviews


Well-appointed rooms with views

Travellers loved the Morecambe Bay and countryside views from the rooms and also praised the modern en suite bathrooms for being clean and well-equipped with powerful showers. The rooms were described as spacious, clean, comfortable and well-appointed with cosy beds.


Peaceful bayside location

This small hotel's location off the quiet coast road between Barrow-in-Furness and Ulverston attracted praise from guests for its tranquillity and beautiful scenery. Moreover, it was a short stroll from the beach for pleasant walks along the edge of Morecambe Bay. The stunning Lake District National Park was also within easy reach for lakes, mountains and outdoor activities. Motorists welcomed the direct access to the A5087, ample free on-site parking and proximity of the A590 and M6 for getting to area attractions, transport links, beauty spots and nearby towns.


Friendly personnel and praise for catering

Reviewers appreciated the relaxed atmosphere and often said they dealt with attentive, friendly and obliging personnel. The cooked and continental breakfasts were a hit with many guests as was the informal but tastefully-decorated restaurant, which reportedly offered wide choice of delicious dishes, a well-stocked bar and friendly service.

Negative Reviews


Some doubts over value for money

Several critics expressed occasional doubts over whether their stays represented such good value for money. Although the room rates were usually reasonable, they reportedly weren't the area's most competitive.


Rural location best suited drivers

Although there was a bus stop nearby, guests noted that this property was slightly off the beaten path and therefore much easier to access for those with their own vehicles as public transport options were limited.


Light sleepers reported occasional noise

Despite the location usually being tranquil, a few light sleepers remarked that noise from adjacent rooms or the restaurant-bar sometimes travelled rather easily, causing an occasional disturbance.
