4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We usually stay at the travelodge opposite this hotel but will be staying here from now on. The travelodge is modern but the Kings Arms is full of character, has a bar, a restaurant and parking (£5 per stay) and that makes it a much better bet in my book. Add to that friendly helpful staff and free wifi and... More

The room wasn't the greatest though we aren't the types for luxury I would describe it as " Humble " Vibrant night life of Lancaster at your window. By vibrant I mean it has a large university so a Friday night can be pretty loud. Breakfast was Pretty good though didnt take notice of my Eggs as they were far... More

The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and always available. The decor is tired and stuck in the 1980s but the rooms and all communal areas are scrupulously clean. Breakfast gives plenty of choice and is served without delay Just a minute's walk from the station and city centre. My room looked out onto the road but noise was minimised by double... More

I would have given a 3 rating, except for the cons identified below. I stayed for 2 nights, room only, from 13th March 2015 in room 319, so can only comment on the room and generally. Pros: 1. Location, if you want central Lancaster. 2. Old traditional hotel, great building. Cons: 1. Hotel in need of some investment. My room,... More

This is a beautiful old building in a fantastic central location with a secure car park. The staff are excellent, helpful and friendly. Sadly, the decor is about 20 years overdue for an update, the whole place could do with a deep clean and the room was shabby, dirty (dusty, in need of vacuuming properly and I stocked drinks facilities)...

We arrived early and left our bags. Returned at 2pm to check in. Excellent rooms with tea making facilities. Beds comfy and spacious. Breakfast good with lots of choices. Would recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Stayed here for one night recently but would not return. It is in a central location which is why we chose it. The room was very cramped and the furniture and decor very shabby. The lighting was terrible. Although supposed to be a double room we only had one bedside table and lamp (it seems only one can read in... More

I stayed here a couple of times last year and for the money you can't complain, it is the first time I have stayed here this year and I notice some works being carried out. Beware that the car park is now £5.00 for the night, I was not expecting this as I had never paid before, they have a... More
