This hotel is fine. Comfortable and clean. Reasonable price. I quite like the quirky dated look. Arrived late at night. Guy on reception very helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was a bit disappointing. Main problem is Lancaster itself which every time I go us the most horrific traffic and parking problems but this clearly is not the fault of the hotel... More

Good service and clean. Breakfast was very nice. Good location near the Railway Station and City Centre. Hotel decor in room, corridors and breakfast room very tired. Could do with updating which would make this hotel an excellent stay.

Check in was 2 pm onwards. Turned up at the hotel at 3.30 pm and informed the room wasn't available because of a 'cleaner's strike'. Was offered a complimentary drink which was ok fair enough. An hour later went to reception and still no sign of rooms. Looked at me like i was alien and asked 'what's the problem'. I... More

I stayed at the Kings Arms Hotel, Lancaster, for 1 night on 9 July 2015. The hotel is about 200 yards from the railway station and 50 yards from the A6 main road. There is car parking at the hotel for a charge of £5 - arrive early to be sure of a place - the barrier lifts automatically for... More

Was looking to book a room for a single night for my girlfriend and I for a getaway in Lancaster. The descriptions of the place sounded good, and the other reviews talking about it being outdated and needed work I waived off as just being people having overly high expectations. However I think I have to agree with them. The... More

I love this old hotel and have stayed there many times. Yes, it is old but that's part of its charm. The bedrooms are spotless as is the the breakfast room - all with white linen. The service is great. Plus it's situated in the right place for entertainment and is right opposite the Robert Gillow (an olde comfortable pub... More
