I was made very welcome by the landlady and her staff, very helpful. room was more than excellent, with all the facilities necessary, and comfortable.. As i was en-route to Furness Generaal the next day,for an operation, it was a shame i could n't have the breakfast ! I will stay there again, prior to the next op, and i also intend popping back in to see them as well, and have lunch there. Perfect

Industrial Barrow
I stayed in The Royal Hotel for a one night business trip. The Hotel is in need of a lot of refurbishment. It is more of a pub than an hotel. When I arrived the bar was in full swing, and this continued all evening. The hotel is a long walk into town and is located in a run down/industrial area. The room was ok, but not very clean. The breakfast was cold and they had no eggs. I would not return.
