“No need for Alex Polizzi here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

This hotel is a great find. The accommodation is comfortable with everything you may need. The food was very good and the staff couldn't have been more kind and helpful. I stayed for 1 night on my way north but would love to return for a 2 or 3 night stay to explore the lovely countryside surrounding Kirkby Lonsdale.

Room Tip: As far as I can see any room would be acceptable and accessible as there is a lift.

We travelled through Kirkby Lonsdale on a very wet Sunday afternoon looking for a cosy refuge and good local fayre. The Royal has been recently refurbed and is well worth a visit. We chose it because we have visited several of this group's other pubs and restaurants in Lancashire and never been disappointed. We ordered cumbrian ham with fried eggs on ciabatta and fish and chips. Both meals were superb, nothing else to say really. Service was friendly and efficient. We chose to eat in the pub lounge rather than the dining room. Helpfully you can choose food from any menu in any room rather than the stuffy restrictions you get too often in some pubs/restaurant seeking to be more than they are. If you are up this way give the Royal a try. Oh and they do a good selection of local brews!

We stayed at the royal last August for my wife's birthday, and it was outstanding. This time the stay was not quite as memorable partly due to the room not being as good as the last time and having to wait for our room to be cleaned after the booking in time.
The restaurant is still very good and the service excellent.
The hotel is showing signs of use with some bareness on the carpet and the odd stain on walls and doors. However these were minor observations one year on from an outstanding stay, I still think this hotel is very good quality and will visit again.

My wife and i stopped here for a night in May to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

The hotel and the staff were very friendly and had an excellent manner, the duty manager couldn't do enough for you and he even gave us a quick tour of the other rooms!! We stayed in room 9 which was clean, comfortable and very well furnished and decorated.

We stopped for our evening meal which was delicious in very attractive surroundings and this was supported by an equally enjoyable breakfast.

We enjoyed our stay and as ardent fans of Kirkby Lonsdale, we will be stopping here again!!

Room Tip: Look on the website, it offers a virtual 360 view of the rooms. You won't be disappointed.

Stayed here on Thursday 2nd August for 1 night, lovely hotel, room 12 was gorgeous, be careful as the shower door sticks, checked in and when we advised the receptionist there was a faulty light it was fixed straight away, the TV screen froze a lot which was annoying when we wanted to watch The Olympics, however the overall stay was great and breakfast was AWESOME!!!!! We will be back

Me & my friend stayed over night in room 12 a few days ago.
Lovely room, spotlessly clean & gorgeous bathroom.
Staff friendly & helpful.
Breakfast is amazing! I had eggs Benedict & it was delicious, perfectly cooked! Would definitely recommend & return.

I stayed here while on business and not wanting to be in a motorway services, I know the area a bit so decided to head to Kirkby. The Royal is great, excellent service, nice public areas, good food and beer, great room and for a very good price. I only had 2 issues and both were very minor, there wasn't an easy to access plug for my laptop and phone and it took about 5 minutes for someone to arrive to check me out but that was it, otherwise it was spot on and I hope I will be back.
