4Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
CORNWALLIS STREET , BARROW-IN-FURNESS, LA14 2LG
The seaport of Barrow-in-Furness is found at the tip of the Furness peninsula, bordered by Morecambe Bay, the Duddon Estuary and the Irish Sea. It offers the ideal base to explore the Lake District and is close to Furness Abbey, Piel Island and many other attractions including South Lakes Safari Zoo (to which Imperial Hotel residents enjoy discounted admission).

The Imperial Hotel is situated in the heart of Barrow, opposite the impressive Victorian Town Hall. Designed by Architect Thomas Bennett, the hotel was built in 1875 during the boom to accommodate the wealth of prospectors and gentry attracted by the town’s industrial riches.

Closed for many years, the hotel has been gloriously restored following an extensive redevelopment programme. Now re-open to the public, the Imperial Hotel is renowned for impeccable service and traditional values, bestowing each guest with a memorable stay.

The Imperial Hotel consists of 49 en-suite bedrooms, all of which are designed to provide luxurious comfort and style that every guest deserves. All bedrooms feature pocket sprung luxury beds, flat screen televisions with an abundance of channels, tea and coffee making facilities and WI-FI internet access.

For pure splendour, choose one of our executive rooms or suites. With king size beds, walk-in wet rooms and jacuzzi baths, each offer a delightful environment for you to relax and indulge.

After a busy day of work or pleasure, the ground floor Aspire Bar provides the perfect setting to unwind. Whether you desire a long drink, a continental beer, a refined wine or celebratory champagne, your tastes are well and truly catered for. Cocktail lovers can savour the delights of an extensive menu devised by our resident mixologist – from classic Cosmopolitans to a modern Mojitos.

The Imperial Hotel is seamlessly in tune with the needs of the modern world, offering wedding, business and commercial services with a choice of conference and banqueting suites accommodating up to 180 guests. A prestigious venue and impeccable support services combine to make it the perfect choice for any event.

Definately not 4*
This hotel is advertised 4 * but is no where near this mark. The room we were given was much smaller than the one advertised. It was clean enough but very much in need of a lick of paint and new carpet. The bottom of the shower door was filthy and most of all the voile curtains looked as if they had not been washed in years. These were white at some point but are now grey and filthy at the bottom. This was the case for these curtains in every room we were in, including the breakfast room. The carpet on the stairs and first floor was a light brown and covered with stains.
The only reason we stayed in the hotel was that we had booked the room late and had a good price.
If I had paid the full price I would have been horrified.
All the staff looked bored and sat around most of the time waiting to do something. Especially in the breakfast room. I think there was no need for two staff as there was not even enough work for one. The breakfast was simple and adequate but the coffee was cold every morning.
This hotel is badly in need of refurbishment and should never be advertised as a 4*.
Disappointed that Late Rooms are allowing this to be advertised as this. We go away at this time every year and always book 4* for a good standard of hotel. Were very displeased with this one and would not recommend it to anyone.

Would stay again
Had a pleasant stay, we were in a room at the back which did need a bit of paint touch up in places, however it was a quiet part of the hotel. Didn't hear any noise from the bar downstairs or the night club at the side, so a good nights sleep we had. Breakfast was very good. We went to the Buddha lounge ( round the corner) for a few drinks, well recommended very cosy.

Not impressed, would not stay again
We found the photos displayed to be very misleading as our room looked like a cheap version of this. Our room (215) was a fair size but the bed was pushed against the wall in the corner, there were marks all over the walls and the floor. The sheets were bobbly, the bed wasn't particularly comfy, the 'designer toiletries' were awful and the location is in a run down area. We also weren't impressed with the customer service, the party going on all night on the floor below us or the breakfast area and food.
