We had a lovely overnight break here last weekend. The staff were young and quiet, but well mannered and helpful. There is a distinct "old building" smell in the foyer, but thankfully this did not continue into the rooms. Our room was clean, modern with all the little things you would expect and free wifi. We had our evening meal... More

On arrival i was greeted in a very friendly manner by James who was very polite and helpful. I was staying with a colleague of mine and we had already decided not to have dinner at the hotel and had a fantastic meal in a Thai restaurant located in Lancaster. The room and bed was very comfortable and the breakfast... More

our first visit to Scarthwaite Hotel, was better than we could have hoped for. We were all made to feel incredibly welcome, including our dog. All the staff were wonderfully friendly to us and Biscuit. Michael was very helpful in suggesting some great local walks for us. The room was a delightful surprise, it was very spacious and comfortable and... More

Second time we've stayed here and have been made to feel thoroughly welcome on both occasions. Great location just off the m6 in beautiful countryside with very nice riverside dog walk near by.

An excellent base for Lancaster and the surrounding area, the room was very comfortable although it would have been nice to have had 2 chairs in the room (there was only 1) the staff were very helpful and the food was excellent...be warned sat nav would have had us going past and phone reception is intermittent

Our first visit to the characterful Scarthwaite Hotel, for 2 nights in April 2015, with a group of classic car enthusiasts. Impressed with the well cooked, tasty, breakfast and evening meals, and the quiet, very clean, and comfortable room (we stayed in 'Cedar'). Great value for money. All provided by the ever-helpful owner/manager, Michael, and his staff. A bonus for... More

Two nights with our classic car club. We were made very welcome and felt really "At Home" The food and service were excellent and we all enjoyed our first visit. I am sure we will be returning in the future. Thanks to Michael and the staff for looking after us so well.

My husband and I spent one night at the hotel in order to attend an event locally. The welcome was five star; James could not have been more attentive to our needs. We stayed in a double room called the Valley on the first floor. The communal areas with high ceilings make you feel both grand and at home! The... More
