This is the first Review I've made. I stayed 2 nights with my daughter and my son and family as we were going to a Family Wedding. The hotel was full (they had 2 weddings on the friday at the hotel itself) butthe Service was amazing. They provided my Son's family with Goats Milk and gluten free bread and even... More

This hotel is one of a group around the Lake District, where we always visit several times a year, but after ten years driving past Lancaster decided to try it. We were very impressed, the hotel is a little outdated, but clean, and the staff are energetic and really helpful. The pool staff were a little cool tho, but then... More

Maybe it was because the sun was shining on the fountain outside the very modern looking hotel when we arrived but this was a brilliant start to my short break holiday. We had booked a two night package with dinner on the first night and a bottle of prosecco on ice in our luxury room on arrival. The bathroom was... More

We have tried all of the hotels in the English Lakes groups (apart from Low Wood), & this one is definitely the best of the group. The hotel is well furnished, & the restaurant is especially worthy of mention. The food is excellent, & my steak was cooked exactly as I had requested it. The staff are all extremely pleasant...

We just had an overnight stop on the way to Scotland. Everything was really good about it. The location was not very prepossessing as it was on the edge of the university halls of residence. However this didn't matter for an oversight stop.

As members of the Sandpiper Leisure Club at Lancaster House Hotel we had taken two adult friends and our three young children for a swim and then to the bar at the hotel. We were sitting quietly in the bar when we were told that another guest had complained about one of the children, who is just two years old,... More

Have stayed here a few times just for a break. Good spa facilities - gym, pool, steam room, sauna. Oudoor jacuzzi very nice. Rooms decent and staff friendly. Breakfast has a good variety. Sandeman's bar, as an alternative to the restaurant, can get a little crowded early evening but serves good selection of meals and snacks.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Lancaster House Hotel. It is a great stop off on the way to the Lake District. The suite was spacious and clean and we had a good night sleep and a well needed lie in. We ate in the restaurant in the evening, although the food was average the staff... More

Nice hotel. Stayed for a week in August. Good location about 5 mins from the town and located on the University Campus. Probably the nicest Hotel in the area. We took a suite so was in the newer part. It was a good size with a seperate area to the bedroom so someone with a child enjoys some privacy. Good... More

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Luxurious and comfortable rooms. Would love to stay there again. One of the best parts is the location of the hotel. The bus station is within a minute and the university campus, inside which this hotel is located, is an ideal place to go for long walks.
