The place is ok. It's in a very handy location. The sleep quality is very good. Breakfast was very expensive and not that great. The place is a bit boring and could do with some moderning up. If you stay I recommend Tony's Bistro for breakfast.

Lancaster lodge was clean, in a good location but I felt it missed out in the level of service you would expect for the price and also considering it is meant to be 4 stars. The reception staff were friendly but the staff at breakfast could have been more customer focused, it felt like they didn't want to be there.... More

Spent two nights here in June. It's conveniently situated & only a short walk from the city centre. Easily accessible car park. The hotel is clean and the decor quite tasteful if a little soulless - as an earlier reviewer said, more like a motel than a hotel. Staff were generally friendly and helpful. Room was a decent size and... More

I stayed for four nights during the June heatwave and was initially worried about the lack of air conditioning. However the window opened very wide and I looked out over the river and had good breezes. The bed and pillows were comfortable and there were excellent restaurants, bars, and shops nearby. The breakfast was also good. I would definitely stay... More

When I arrived for the second night I was asked for my Credit Card for a Pre Authorisation payment of 126 Euros, when I queried this... More

Very pleasant stay. Room was first class and location gives good access to the City. I drive a coach and thought parking would be a problem but this turned out to as easy as anywhere I've stayed in a long time. Staff very helpful. Would stay again.

Stayed here one night. I had a room that had one twin and one double bed. I slept in the twin and it was quite comfortable. Small TV mounted on the wall. The room does not have air conditioning; however, it does have a large window that you can open. I did ask for a fan to circulate the air... More
