I cannot praise this hotel enough. Wonderfully helpful staff, without getting in the way. Very comfortable and well equipped rooms, and a choice of a first class restaurant or snacks in the bar. Wish i had had more time to use the pool. Wish I could have stayed longer. Will definitely be back.

I've been visiting The Lancaster House hotel now for about 20 years, and although we have tried several other places in the vicinity, keep coming back to Lancaster House as we can't find anything better. This time, instead of just booking the usual double room, we opted for the studio suite and I can say that it was well worth... More

We ended up here as the M6 was closed. I could not think of better place to stay by accident. The room was spacous and clean. The breakfast was lovely. I will be staying here again when im in the area.

We stayed at Lancaster House for 2 nights for our sons graduation day at Lancaster University. The front of the hotel is really pretty with hanging baskets and a beautiful fountain and water feature. Our room was spacious and had a peaceful view over fields and Alexandra Park where our son stayed in his first year at University. The bed... More

This place surprised me, in a good way. But the key is make sure you choose the junior suite or studio, or whatever it's called. That's in the new wing where all the rooms are newly renovated. Huge bathroom, spotless space, and roomy bedroom with adjacent sitting separate sitting area. It's actually quite charming. My friend got a regular room... More

We stayed here recently while visiting the University. It was easy to find and in a good location. We were very impressed with our room and the entire hotel was spotlessly clean which is a big plus these days. There was lots of information about the surrounding areas on offer in the foyer and the staff at the front desk... More

This is our second visit here and cannot fault the hotel or service. We stayed in a suite and the accommodation is by far one of the best we have stayed in. . . the bathroom is huge and the large freestanding bath is a bonus. The hotel food is always well presented, the restaurant has a nice ambiance and... More

We stayed at the Lancaster House Hotel for one night while attending a wedding in Lancaster. The hotel is in a lovely setting and the foyer is very nice. Reception desk were helpful. The room (room 2) was well laid out and had extra hand-rails for disabled as requested. The room looked a little tired, maybe a coat of paint... More

Thank you for your feedback following your recent stay with us. Whilst it was gratifying to learn that you enjoyed certain aspects of your stay, I'm sorry we failed to meet your expectations in a couple of areas. Certainly, the room you stayed in is ear-marked for modernisation this year as part of our rolling moderisation programme. We do serve... More
