This place surprised me, in a good way. But the key is make sure you choose the junior suite or studio, or whatever it's called. That's in the new wing where all the rooms are newly renovated. Huge bathroom, spotless space, and roomy bedroom with adjacent sitting separate sitting area. It's actually quite charming. My friend got a regular room... More

We stayed here recently while visiting the University. It was easy to find and in a good location. We were very impressed with our room and the entire hotel was spotlessly clean which is a big plus these days. There was lots of information about the surrounding areas on offer in the foyer and the staff at the front desk... More

This is our second visit here and cannot fault the hotel or service. We stayed in a suite and the accommodation is by far one of the best we have stayed in. . . the bathroom is huge and the large freestanding bath is a bonus. The hotel food is always well presented, the restaurant has a nice ambiance and... More

We stayed at the Lancaster House Hotel for one night while attending a wedding in Lancaster. The hotel is in a lovely setting and the foyer is very nice. Reception desk were helpful. The room (room 2) was well laid out and had extra hand-rails for disabled as requested. The room looked a little tired, maybe a coat of paint... More

Thank you for your feedback following your recent stay with us. Whilst it was gratifying to learn that you enjoyed certain aspects of your stay, I'm sorry we failed to meet your expectations in a couple of areas. Certainly, the room you stayed in is ear-marked for modernisation this year as part of our rolling moderisation programme. We do serve... More

Good food, comfortable room with excellent spacious room, a very good bed and bathroom. Lovely leisure facilities including an outdoor hot tub. The breakfast was very good also. The hotel was very clean and all the staff I met helpful and friendly.

The hotel has a very nice lobby area and a good restaurant; dinner and breakfast were very good. Looks to be situated in a nice area but not close to the city centre, nor to the train station. The bar food was also good. Room was OK. The staff were friendly.
