Hotel in lovely location. Main areas, restaurant, bar lounge all very nice. Bedroom ok - comfortable bed. Bathroom was tired - old shower, old bath. Bathroom wasn't clean - floor under sink was dirty, something had been spilt down vanity unit and not cleaned off. Towels had stains on them. Wifi was a frustration. Given code at check in but...

The service on arrival was smooth quick and professional, the room was the cleanest and most comfortable I have ever slept in, the bar was reasonably priced and the breakfast was the best I've ever had at a hotel.

Nice hotel, friendly and helpful staff, great food (breakfast - wow!). Good leisure facilities including a pool and gym. Nothing not to recommend it. The bathroom perhaps in need of a bit of updating and refresh but spotlessly clean and tidy.

We stayed at the Lancaster house hotel as guests to a wedding. The room was a good size, clean and decorated to a good standard. As regular visitors to Lancaster this hotel is too far out of the city centre compared to the majority of the hotels. If you intend to spend a lot of time in town or do... More

Only complaints were that the rooms had no... More

this very pleasant hotel looks a little like a motorway roadside lodge as you walk up to its entrance, but it is in fact full of character and warmth, once you are inside. For the second time we visited our son who is at Lancaster University over the summer (Masters) and found the staff once again friendly and welcoming. Our... More

The area was filling fast with Summer Holiday travelers so we went for a bigger more traditional hotel. This is part of the University and has a lot of larger functions. We had asked for a 1st floor room since my wife's knee was really acting up and they have no elevator, but were told none was available. Did not... More

Stayed on business. Really good value room with great breakfast. Food in the evening fantastic for the price and good that they allowed you to order the restaurant food in the bar as being on my own preferred to eat in a more informal setting.. Health club good with lovely outdoor hot tub. Would definitely stay again.
