This hotel has changed it's layout in the last year which has made it much busier with locals using the bar however they don't seem to have increased the number of staff they have to go along with the changes. The ambience is still good, food ok and the rooms nice but the staff, though trying their best, seem permanently... More

The food was excellent and room 2 was perfect with its view overlooking the market place.We will definitely be making... More

We had booked New Year's Eve at the Royal Hotel and, knowing the standards of James' Places, we were expecting a lovely night. The end result was way beyond our expectations; a seamless parade of superbly prepared food, fabulous entertainment and a night to remember. The staff were fabulous and the childish behaviour of an obnoxious guest - Mr D... More

We stayed at the Royal for 3 nights over Christmas and found the hotel to be excellent. Our room was beautiful & overlooked the Christmas tree on the square. It was spacious, comfortable bedding & very clean. The cleaners came in each morning & provided clean towels etc. As part of our package breakfast & a 3 course evening meal... More

The Royal Hotel's central location puts you in the heart of the Kirkby Lonsdale. The staff that dealt with us were very professional & polite and sorted everything... More

Never have I ever been spoken too by the manager of a hotel so rudely as this hotel. He was obviously under pressure this is no excuse to insult me in front of my wife . I will track the owner down and inform them of the unacceptable behaviour I experienced. VERY VERY RUDE MUTTERED COMMENTS UNDER HIS BREATH. 😔😔😔😔

We had previously had coffee at this hotel. That had been sufficiently good for us to book a table for four of us for lunch. We were shown to a table which was actually big enough for about eight people so we felt somewhat awkward sitting at one end of it. The second problem was that the chairs consisted of... More
