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.

Good for £40
We arrived about 9pm due to travelling, it was heavily raining and very windy, we parked up outside and went in to ask for the car park to be told their car park was full (first come first serve apparently) luckily there is a car park opposite but this is chargeable.
After checking in we asked for a menu to be informed they didn't serve food! After a long journey and the thought of having to go back out in the wind and rain this felt a little disappointing, however there is a local tesco near by as well as take out's which u can bring back to the room or go to their sister hotel and eat there and have it charged to your room,
The room was clean, tidy and modern however the widows were only single glazed!!! As it was a very wet and windy night this became more apprent as the widows rattled, the curtains blew slightly and it was cold.
The bed was comfy and I can complain at my quality of sleep!! The breakfast in the morning was to a good standard and the staff were helpful and friendly.
We only paid £40 for our room so although there are a few things I've picked at, all in all it was good value for money and a comfortable stay.

The hotel is very good value for money. The only thing that let it down was the quality of the breakfast, some of the items were under cooked & quite a few of the guests were not eating what they were served.

It was a nice hotel but the staff seemed a little unorganised. There was also not enough parking so we had to pay for it ourselves. Would have been nice to have had that paid back.

Pleasant stay apart from basic room necessities such as a room mirror and basic literature not available in the room. No information about breakfast, the use of restaurant (food) or the local area, in fact no information at all about the hotel itself was no where to be found. Noise was a problem on Saturday night from the local bar/club.

Good value in Barrow
A nicely-refurbished hotel with an excellent fresh-cooked breakfast. Would be better if evening meals where avaialble.

I was a little disappointed that even though I booked a double room, I was stuck in a small room with single bed, however it was clean.
