The staff here without exception were friendly, professional and extremely helpful. Easy no hassle check in. Parking permit allowing free parking which was great - no problem finding a parking spot within easy walking distance from the hotel. The staff were more than happy to help us get our luggage from the car. We had room 7 which was quickly... More

My partner and I first visited Plato's back in May for lunch and we were somewhat impressed with both the food and the excellent service given. Having been so impressed we stayed for 3 nights recently and had a truly fabulous experience. The staff couldn't have been friendlier and the service provided at breakfast was excellent. Room 3 is very... More

We had a very comfortable 2 nights at this lovely hotel. The location couldn't be better, and the staff made every effort to make our stay a fabulous break. Can recommend the Cumbrian breakfast, and the friendly atmosphere. Would definitely go back.

Stayed here for our 1st wedding Anniversary and we couldn't have asked for more! As soon as you walk in the atmosphere is fantastic and the staff smiling and greeting you instantly, not to mention the aroma coming from the kitchen.. Our bags taken to the room, parking passes sorted and on to the rooms.. Ours was lovely, plenty of... More

My friend and I arrived at Plato's on Thursday afternoon. We were met by exceptionally friendly staff who showed us to our room. The room was spotless, comfy and welcoming. The toiletries in the bathroom smelt divine. We enjoyed drinks outside, and sampled cocktail of the day Champagne Bellini's-delicious. The breakfast was amazing, so much choice! We had Mimosa's made... More

I have stayed at Platos before in a much larger room, this time we stayed in room 5, very small although clean and well equiped. We ate there on the Friday night, a little dissappointed with the choice on the main menu, ddin't fancy tapas. The breakfast was fabulous, the choice was amazing and everything was cooked fresh.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Plato’s is set in the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale - once discovered never forgotten. On the edge of the Lake District, the Dales and The Forest of Bowland. A pretty little market town set in the Lune Valley with wonderful walking, stunning views and really good shopping.As a boutique hotel, we understand that one of the joys of going away is to have a touch more luxury than you do at home. So that is why in our higgledy piggledy old building, we have made sure that every room is unique. The only thing that is standard is comfort - the ultra luxury Vi-Spring beds, the crisp cotton linen, the stacks of fluffy white towels, the state of the art flatscreen TVs, the luxurious en suite bathrooms some with baths and others with rainfall showers, the complimentary bottle of Plato's wine and gorgeous local Sedbergh Soap Company toiletries.Downstairs we have a Bar and Restaurant - Proper home cooking with a twist made from fresh ingredients sourced on our doorstep, a wine list selected by grape so that you can try new variations of your favourite wine, and honest beers and ales for the drinker who knows the difference.All prices are per room per night and include our sumptuous breakfast which is served until 2.30pm so you really can have a lazy lie in (please note that the room cleaning service finishes at 10am and check out on day of departure is 11am). ... more   less
