Apparently we left some items behind after check out. The staff contacted us to let us know and immediately overnighted the items to us! We are so appreciative, its nice to see kind acts... More

We used the hotel as a stopover on our return from Glasgow to Worcestershire. We found it exceeded our expectations in regard to welcome, value and cleanliness. Our room was bright, large and with a good en-suite. The evening meal was freshly cooked and tasty - we opted for two from the specials board. We would certainly like to stay... More

My wife and I were travelling to Lancaster to collect our son and had to book a short notice since dates were uncertain. We got to the hotel latish and were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. We quickly got to the room which was "functional" and had a small en suite. For an overnight stop it was fine -... More

Friendly hotel, food was good and reasonably priced, bed was uncomfortable and the place felt a little unloved, awful choice of cheap nasty led lighting in the bar area, it felt very cold and harsh, overall ok but wouldn't return.

The family room was spacious and had everything we needed. We had dinner there that evening and the staff were very accommodating when it came to our strange requests. Breakfast was lovely... More

We found this hotel on booking and really selected it as a stop gap on our way to Scotland, at a bargain price. Well we truly got a bargain! The hotel is located about 5-10 mins outside of Lancaster in the middle of countryside. It is so quiet that several rabbits were around the grounds and I was able to... More
