Our conditions mean we need a room as near the car as possible because we have to transport medical equipment etc and we cannot walk far without great pain. Accomodating my wife's... More

Really helpful staff at this hotel. Couldn't do enough; made us feel very special. Comfortable rooms, and great food in the restaurant. Go for the swordfish if it's on the menu that day - it was divine! They also have a great conference centre, run by the University so everything is on site. Will definitely use this venue again in...

I stayed here for the Lancaster University beer festival, and was pleased to find the hotel hadn't changed since the last time I stayed there a couple of years ago, for the same purpose. It has a welcoming atmosphere; the staff are friendly; the bedrooms clean, comfortable and well-equipped; the ensuite large and clean. The only snag was the lack... More

I stayed here in April for a conference being held at the university. The hotel itself feels like a country hunting lodge with an impressive entrance hall and fireplace you can know your stay is going to be something different. I was fortunate for the conference to be staying in one of the suites the hotel has. The suite was... More

This hotel has everything you could possibly want or need but is not flashy or self-important. I was staying here as part of a conference and it made the whole experience easy and enjoyable. Food was very good, breakfast particularly, and the staff were always helpful and friendly without seeming stressed, dismissive or obsequious. Great steam room, pool and outdoor... More
