I stayed in the Lancaster house for a short business trip. It is a well placed, very welcoming and nicely appointed hotel. My room was spacious, clean and contained everything I required. The sleep quality was excellent. Breakfast was full of choice, well cooked and well presented. I used the leisure centre which is an added bonus. Staff were helpful... More

We stayed here last Saturday when taking our son back to the Uni. What a find this hotel was! A lovely real fire in a cosy reception area with comfy sofas, relaxing bar area and the restaurant food was excellent - really very good at reasonable prices. Service all round is excellent and the room was very comfortable and surprisingly... More

This hotel has a very welcoming feel when you arrive. The room was well funished with comfortable beds. My only concern was the bathroom floor was quite slippery which I imagine would be far worse when wet. The restaurant and bar area were very nice.

We last stayed at this hotel for our son's graduation in July 2013, and stayed here again when he received his masters in December 2014. Being winter it was a whole new experience, with Christmas decorations, an open fire burning in the hearth, cosy couches, lovely food in an all-round superb hotel. Lancaster itself has a great choice of pubs... More

This is our third stay at this hotel, and we have enjoyed each one. On this occasion we (2 adults + 2 children) stayed in two adjoining Classic Rooms. Really well appointed rooms, lovely and clean, spacious and nice and quiet. An added bonus was being allowed to bring our dog in for the night. Any negatives? Not many! The... More

Stayed just the one night to break our journey from the highlands to the South as the hotel is far enough away from the motorway to be very quiet but close enough for easy access. Very welcoming cosy fire in the reception area. Also warm welcome from the pleasant staff. Our room was extremely comfortable & clean. In the corridors... More
