We came here for weekend with our dogs for my friends Birthday and were not disappointed. They had been a few times before and loved it and it was excellent again. A dog friendly clean hotel that doesn't smell doggy! We were greeted with a cream tea on arrival and thoroughly spoilt. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff... More

We have stayed at Plato's 3 times now and haven't been disappointed. Excellent value for money. I have racked my brains to try and think of anything that I can complain about and I'm struggling to be honest! Food and drink is always great (and I am very particular), excellent service, bedroom immaculately clean, huge comfy beds and crisp white... More

Quirky and cool with friendly staff, fab breakfast with interesting choices in particular the arnold bennet omelette was delicious. Excellent value for money and a bar full of interesting people. Have stayed before and will return again.

Have stayed here numerous times, it is probably my favourite hotel in England! Great location, fantastic staff and amazing food. Also we where lucky enough to be staying the same night as the regular wine tasting event, we'll worth the £10 cost but did mean I spent a small fortune on wine. Will be rebooking for the next tasting event!

Platos is 1st Class for ambience, service, food & wine. The rooms & beds are perfection, especially Room 4. The restaurant below ground is perfection with ambience & character. If you visit Kirkby Lonsdale or Cumbria then there is only one place to stay, PLATOS.

Had a midweek lunch here. Range on offer was excellent, sharing platters offering best value. Food is of exceptional quality and has been over several visits. I would certainly recommend plato's to any visitor to Kirby Lonsdale

This was our first stay at Plato's which we thoroughly enjoyed and would not hesitate to book again. The staff on arrival were friendly, helpful and accommodating and offered me a cream afternoon tea even on the day we had booked out. A very busy hotel where perhaps an extra pair of hands serving breakfast would help, but this does... More

What an amazing place to eat and stay for a romantic weekend, I can't recommend it highly enough! We had eaten here last year for my birthday while staying nearby, and had such a wonderful meal that when we saw they had boutique rooms, my husband decided on the spot to come back to Kirkby Lonsdale for my birthday against...

In the 10 years of our get togethers we were all agreed that Plato's is the best to date, from every angle. Accommodation, very tasteful and spotless, choice... More

Twice yearly we meet with family for a catch up. Plato's is probably the best we have stayed at in terms of accommodation and food.An excellent place will definitely stay again when in Kirby. Very welcoming for dogs.
