The hotel is away from the town itself which was nice and quiet. The rooms were clean and spacious and the staff helpful. Breakfast and dinner was excellent a good range to choose from. Nice views while walking the grounds.

Second time stay at lancaster house & again everything perfect. Breakfast is quality, obviously locally sourced ingredients. We stayed in a suite which are contemporary & luxurious. The service is remarkable and all staff clearly well trained without being robotic. If you are staying in the area choose this hotel as you will not be disappointed.

I was attending a 50th birthday party and did not arrive until about 7:30pm. I organised a taxi for 8pm. My stay was extremely short but the following was noticed. The check in was well organised, pleasure and warm. My room great but the on wall tv could be larger. The room was very comfortable, well appointed as was my... More

The public spaces in this hotel are lovely and look well maintained. The room we stayed in, however, was very tired, dated and had an unpleasant 'grimy' smell. The room was also very warm and stuffy and being on the ground floor, we did not want to sleep with a window open. The reception, restaurant and cleaning staff were very... More

We had a great night at Lancaster House last weekend. Spa facilities very good, had a drink in the afternoon sun in the courtyard. The young barman recommended a local bottled cider that they sell and it was excellent. The staff and the food in the restaurant were extremely good and they have a really good reasonably priced wine list.... More

Second time staying at this hotel. Nice relaxing place set in its own grounds just 10 mins from centre of Lancaster. Lovely rooms, pool and outside hot tub inside jacuzzi gym every thing you need, large comfy rooms with extra touches wine decanters ice machines on corridors. Food in both restaurant and bar scrumptious. As I said Lancaster 10 mins... More

The suites are fabulous, but need a good clean. There was dust on surfaces and the partition from bathroom to bedroom was filthy. The throw on the bed was marked. The other bedrooms were nice. The staff in the bar forgot about us and the meals were average in the bar. The lamb tagine was dried up and a small... More

Another great stay at Lancaster House. This is now a regular first night stop-over whenever I travel to The Lakes. Comfortable rooms, outstanding service and food. This place and sister hotel The Midland at Morecambe keep drawing me back. They must be doing something right.

This is the second visit we have made to this hotel and will now certainly be our preferred hotel for the annual European Christian Workshop at Lancaster University. The room is as ever clean and functional but perhaps could do with a bit of refit in the near future. a wonderfully comfortable bed. A nice touch is the welcoming plush... More
