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.

Relaxing, wonderful and all round perfect Valentines weekend away
Me and my boyfriend stayed here for our first valentines and we couldn't have been happier.
Room was beautiful, clean and absolutely amazing for the price. We stayed for 2 nights and we could have happily stayed longer, when you arrive the building doesn't look much but as soon as you enter the beautiful reception area attached to the cocktails bar 'Aspire' your taken back at how beautiful it actually is.
Although the hotel only had a bar and no restaurant you are is such close distance of fast food chains such as kfc, pizza hut, Frankie and Bennie's etc so it doesn't make much difference, but if you take a 5 minute walk up the road like we did and visit 'Francescas' a beautiful Italian restaurant which was friendly, fantastic service and wonderful food, you really wouldn't be disappointed.
Breakfast was included in the price of our room and this didn't disappoint either, full English breakfast, continental option, fruit, muffins, juice, tea and coffee etc such a wide range and very well presented, check out was at 10 so gave you plenty of time to relax from your full breakfast before leaving.
Another bonus of this hotel was the discount you received when going to the South Lakes Safari Zoo which was about a 15 minute drive from the hotel, well what a day!!! This was fantastic too, perfect was to end our weekend, would recommend you go for a visit there whilst your here.
So all in all we will be visiting the Imperial Hotel again shortly for either my boyfriends or my birthday. I hope everyone has as wonderful a visit as we did.

I stayed in this hotel on a business trip and was very impressed. The room was clean, tidy and spacious. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was impeccable, it was fresh and plentiful. The town centre was within walking distance. I would definitely visit this hotel again & have already recommended it to several of my friends & colleagues.

Clean and good service
Nice room but a little attention should be given to bathroom layout. Shower door could be on the right side which give a better access with door opening wider. Bathroom door did not close. Would have liked bigger pillows. This is just a constructive observation not a complaint.

Room
The hotel was lovely and the rooms well decorated and layout however, there was a bit burn in the carpet that has just been covered up with the bin placed on it and major cracks around the door frame and window which also was a very un present view, other than that I can't fault the stay or quality of the hotel.

the homeless wouldn't stay
Stayed over the final weekend of Jan with my wife. The room was terrible, stains all over the walls. Damp showing the bathroom. Milk provided with coffee was off and couldn't even make a brew. Hotel staff were pleasant. Breakfast was great can't fault it one bit. I would not recommend based on my experience. I certainly won't be staying again. Teabags holding the window up never in my life have I seen that. Bed and pillows were as if I was sleeping on the pavement. Avoid.

Great stay
Me and my partner stayed for my birthday weekend and was amazed by the service received by the staff. The staff over the two nights where very polite and friendly. The building got battered by the wind but this did not affect our stay within the hotel. When people ask me what was the best part of my birthday it would definitely be the hotel, I highly recommend the establishment and would stay here again in the future. The hotel breakfast is to be highly commended, I work in a kitchen and could not have cooked a better breakfast if I tried, it was just what we needed. We will definitely stay again.

Great Hotel. Great Breakfast
