We were in a suite which was very nice and I understand that a refurb project has started in other rooms. We have stayed many times and they have maintained their standards. The spa facilities are great (love the outdoor hot tub) and the food is very good. The hotel is always well staffed and they are friendly and efficient.

We stayed overnight at this hotel costing only £84 for a twin bed room including breakfast. Lovely venue, reception, room etc. Room service were great (got order wrong and without hesitation changed it immediately). Only thing was the walls are a little thin, so giggling of people next door could be heard loudly while we were trying to sleep (until... More

On arriving at the hotel I thought it looked like a large boring conference centre, and was pleased to find that whilst it was large and obviously did catering for corporate events it also had a friendly personal touch. The initial welcome very friendly and the executive room tucked away in a quiet corner very well laid out. It was... More

Dinner, bed and breakfast at reasonable all-in rate. Staff outstandingly helpful and friendly. Enjoyed an excellent meal from a menu that features local produce and therefore out of the ordinary. Room satisfactory and bar had everything we needed. We did not use the activity facilities but can recommend this hotel for a 'normal' stay - relaxing and comfortable.

We booked a weekend here as our daughter is at Lancaster University. We arrived on Friday night to a friendly welcome from the reception staff. Our room was a good size with a very large comfortable bed. The bathroom was well appointed. We had dinner in the hotel which was excellent. Well served and delicious. Also much appreciated was that... More

Hotel right in the grounds of the University so idea for visiting families etc. Had a small spa/gym/pool and steam room which was enormous, the biggest steam room I have ever been in. Hotel itself is in need of a little TLC and some clarity on the room locations, the corridors and rooms are a little dated just in the... More

This is an excellent hotel. It has a great swimming pool and excellent breakfast. A real spa/retreat hotel. The staff are charming and there is a welcome atmosphere. The rooms are clean, high quality and all you would expect for a good quality hotel.

Very welcoming and efficient reception staff, maybe a little more information as to where our room was situated would have helped, though not really a problem. Room was clean and the bathroom well equipped, plenty of hot water even when the hotel seemed fully booked. Food in the restaurant was good and we had the winter package including dinner which...

The hotel is overall comfortable but some parts need to be refurbished. I stayed in a suite which was fairly new but felt a bit overpriced for what it was. There were some issues with cleanliness of the bathroom and the bedlinen leading to some skin irritations. Room service was a bit patchy in terms of availability. On the plus... More

This hotel is one of number owned by a local chain. I'm a regular at the Midland in Morecambe, which is part of that chain and I love. On the basis of that, I have high expectations of this hotel. However, I'd stayed here once some time ago and thought it nice but in need of a bit of an... More
