If you are expecting an identikit hotel, the type which has appeared around most towns don't come here. If you want a hotel in the centre of town at a good price then do come here.
There are a few negatives, rooms at the front get some road noise (what do you expect, it's in a town centre bring some earplugs). Paint peeling on the restaurant ceiling and the extractor fan in my bathroom was noisy.
Good points, right in the town centre and Lancaster has a good selection of pubs and restaurants, and the most important aspect of any hotel, the bed was comfortable and the room clean. Breakfast was good enough and I thought the ancient lift quite in-keeping with the old building. Will definitely stay again on my next night out in Lancaster.
