Room was very clean and quite large. Bathroom was a bit tired and dated but the shower was good. Nice to have large bottles of... More

Wonderful 5-night stay at this hotel with beautiful country house setting. Loved the overall atmosphere – very welcoming. The reception area was particularly unforgettable – so cozy and relaxing with sofas and log fire. Food in the bar and restaurant were good. Hadn’t got time to try the leisure facilities unfortunately. Rooms clean and spacious and very well maintained. Staff... More

This is quite simply a wonderful hotel. Very friendly staff, beautiful decor, lovely rooms, excellent facilities and great food. We cannot rate it highly enough. Having been impressed when I stayed here previously for a conference, I had no hesitation in choosing Lancaster House when we needed a hotel to relax in as we travelled through the area.

We have stayed at this Hotel a couple of times before but not for some time. Once again we were delighted with the welcome, accommodation, excellent leisure facilities and best of all the cuisine. We will definitely return in due course.

I stayed for 1 night on business. I was instantly attracted when I booked this up by the pool and gym facilities on offer and I wasn't disappointed. For a hotel gym, there was plenty of equipment to help develop my perfectly toned body and incredible figure. The pool was also really nice. The room I stayed in was just... More

Dear nick_grimsley, Thank you for taking the time to post such a glowing review of the hotel. I quiet agree with you about the gym, although I am not so sure that the gym agrees with me.

From the brilliant suite room we booked to the little touches of the class the hotel brings with it's card, balloon and the chocolates were nice things they didn't need to do.
