Just had two nights at this excellent hotel. Delightful and helpful staff,great food and very comfortable room. While being very relaxing it still managed to have nice "buzz" in the bar area. Only tiny disadvantage is the lack of car parking. .

We are house hunting and booked Platos as an overnight pit stop. Room was nice, bar and food both at breakfast and dinner were very good. All the staff were especially helpful and friendly. Special mention for Ollie. Will book again in the near future.

We enjoyed our food so much, I had pork belly and Calum had... More

We visited Plato's for lunch on recommendation of a local shopkeeper but we were VERY disappointed with the food. To start we had squid and croquettes. Croquettes were ok if not a little bland. Squid was tasteless and barely warm. For mains we had fish and chips and sea food platter. Platter was served on a slate and was almost... More

Lovely place in the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale with so much to do on it's doorstep. Great bar and fabulous food served in a stunning setting within this wonderful historic market town. Live music hosted on some Sundays is also an added bonus.

Stayed here for business for a night in October. Will definitely be going back for a leisure trip. It is a lovely boutique hotel with only a few rooms. The rooms are wonderful, I think I was in room 2. It's reasonably small but really isn't an issue as it's a wonderful space to rest in. Brilliant bathroom with top... More

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
