About this property

The Bay Horse Hotel and Restaurant

Beach inn with free breakfast and restaurant
The Bay Horse has often been described as a Hidden Gem. Although the approach is a little unconventional(one has to pass by a large Chemical Works, GlaxoSmithKline, which is in the process of being landscaped and one of their flagship sites), it all adds to the mystery of your destination. Once here, a panoramic view of the Levens Estuary and surrounding Cumbrian Fells stretches out before you. Plenty of walks on nearby canal and beach.Known for our hospitality, friendly and efficient service and good, sound cooking has ensured that for the past 33 years we have consistently featured in The Good Pub and Good Hotel Guides and won a prestigious Cesar Award from aforementioned Good Hotel Guide.Our 9 en-suite bedrooms may not be the largest, but have all you need for a comfortable stay. Meals are served in our Conservatory Restaurant, casual by day,candlelit at night, or you may prefer a table in the bar by the log fire. No nouvelle cuisine here, just food tasting the way it should do.
The Bay Horse Hotel and Restaurant offers 9 forms of accommodation with coffee/tea makers and free toiletries. Flat-screen televisions are featured in guestrooms.

Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit. Guests can surf the web using complimentary wireless Internet access. Housekeeping is offered on a daily basis and an iron/ironing board can be requested.

Food with a view
Get a room with the seaview, worth the extra. Room not the biggest and some fittings are dated and have seen better days, but perfectly adequate. Food excellent and service very good. Nice when the fire is blazing.
