Visited from Norfolk for special occasion in Lancaster. Booked a deluxe room which was beautiful and the decor throughout is lovely. However this is a hotel geared up for weddings and conferences and therefore caters for large groups more than couples or individuals at the weekend. Unfortunatelly we were not made aware of the problems with noise until the booking... More

I stayed in this charming hotel for the first time at the beginning of August 2014. From the outside the hotel has an elegant and stately look set in simple but well kept grounds with nice outside patio and decked seating / eating areas for when the weather is good. The inside of the hotel is a perfect blend of... More

We always stay here when we visit Barrow, however I do feel that the rooms have now seen better days. The wallpaper was coming off in our room, there was black mould in the grouting in the bathroom. I personally don't like the new colours, in the restaurant and lobby, but I can see that alot of money has been... More

I visited this hotel with my boyfriend for the bank holiday weekend. We stayed just the one night and it was a lovely night. The woman on the reception was pleasant. The room we was given was not as expected but still nice, I think this was because we was in the annex and not the main building. Bed was... More

We do endeavour to locate leisure guests away from function areas wherever possible. We strive... More

Be aware that this is a superb wedding venue and the interior has been refurbished to an excellent standard. They had two wedding on at the same time and it is always nice to see happy people. But why do they take a booking from visiting guests and have no facility for them to eat in the restaurant. This was... More
