Can't complain about the quality of food and the price. Unfortunately I nearly broke my back to tooth when chewing on my salad. I politely told the waiter what I had found in my food. I wrapped the stone which had cracked into two pieces (I actually thought my tooth had fallen out but was relieved to find the stone... More

My boyfriend booked this hotel for a night stay as we were going out in Lancaster with old university friends. We arrived at reception and the lady there was very friendly and helpful and showed us to our room. On going to the room I noticed that the decor needed a massive overhaul, she apologised and explained that she was... More

Total crap. Unfriendly staff "we're too busy to cook you an egg" there were three people having breakfast. A couple came down at 08:31 "sorry breakast finishes at 08:30" Noisy rooms Plumbing doesn't work. No bedside light or lightswitch. Broken fittings. Noisy dirty dogs live in hotel. Awful bar, cant even but a soft drink after 11:00 exactly. Rubbish breakfast.... More

We didn't start our visit to the Greaves Hotel well; when we arrived the large screen T.V. was on in the Reception/Bar area and was extremely loud. So loud I couldn't hear the bar man. We gave our name etc and the first thing he asked for was the balance of the payment due. That surprised me; I've never had... More

Negatives : Hotel falling apart :- very shabby, lock hanging off bedroom door, decore untouched for 30 years , tiles falling off bathroom (dangerous)! Cleaning ??... More

Our room (number 2) was shabby to say the least. Looks like nothing had been touched for about 30 years. Trouser press out of order. Holes in the wall where fittings had been removed, dingy and depressing. The carpet was probably once beige but is now a very grubby grey, the shower was pretty pathetic but the friendly staff did...

I really enjoyed my visit to the Greaves Hotel. The landlord and staff are both friendly and welcoming. The location is excellent to get into Lancaster easily. We will definately return when next in Lancaster.

We stayed here June 13. The initial call to book was around 7pm and the man I spoke to was a bit grump to say the least. We were going to be perhaps 30 min late for check in and at first that was a major issue for him. However, when we got there a lovely lady booked us in,... More
