Stayed on a Friday night recently, a very comfortable room, excellent bed, great views over the canal. Excellent breakfast, freshly cooked to order, which means can be a little wait for this if busy, but well worth it.

Having stayed here on numerous occasions over the last four years, I'm glad we chose it as our pied a terre for our son's graduation. The location, food, and beer of course, are amongst the best that Lancaster has to offer. Thankfully we'll be returning soon as a PhD is on the horizon !!

One recommendation - staff... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. Check in was swift, as was check out. The bed was very comfortable and the room had great views. Only downside was room had no bath, only shower. The breakfast was fantastic - extra early option so I could catch the early train. Thanks!

Friendly staff, lovely room - such great showers! - and really quiet considering its central location. Slept soundly but left forgetting my jumper, which staff were so good at getting back to me (thank you so much!), even posting it back to London. Highly recommended.

Thaankyou for your great feedback, unfortunately we are in the city centre and we are aware that this comes with noise issues at times. All rooms are triple glazed to help block out those city center noises and if you come to stay again we can offer you a room at the back of the building where it is slightly... More

Very pleasent stay clean... More
