Stayed while visiting son at Lancaster Uni for one night over recent bank holiday weekend. Room only was a fantastic deal, and the hotel is in an excellent location close to centre of Lancaster. Room was very clean, but everything was looking a little old, such as curtains, furniture, carpets. No noise from other guests as we were on top... More

My husband and I stayed here whilst visiting our daughter who is at the University of Lancaster. The central location is excellent for visiting the town and our room had views of the castle which was lovely. Its a pity the windows were so dirty (see photo). Our check in was delayed by almost an hour and in the end... More

We stayed here on Saturday night before our journey onto Grange over sands and to be honest the hotel was a bit of a nightmare to find , although it's in Lancaster centre the sign for the hotel is quite high up on the wall about 2 floors up . We checked in with no problems and was given a... More

We had to find a room at short notice last year as my wife had broken her ankle and the staff at the Royal Kings Arms were fantastic. We felt so welcomed that we came back another two times as we returned to visit the hospital. We loved the Castle View room with the four poster bed. The hotel is... More

Deffo worth a stay smack bang in the middle of Lancaster . They need to get rid of 5.00 Car park charge though as it's a ridiculous fee to impose on already paying guests . The Dining room used only for Breakfasts is Lovely , Why not do evening meals as well I think it would increase your revenue rather... More

The hotel has the potential to be lovely, however, it needs some serious money spending on it. The room was large but extremely dated. Paint was cracked. Poor mattress. Depressing. However, the hotel was cheaper than the nearby Travelodge. Good location. Literally a stroll into the city centre. Complimentary wifi as well

We had a choice of the Royal Kings Arms or the Travelodge and I think we made the right choice. Yes it is a bit tired looking and shabby, but I had an excellent nights sleep in a huge room. It is well placed close to the train station and town centre.
