Stayed here last weekend. Beautiful luxury room with massive comfy bed. Although the hotel doesn't have a restaurant in the traditional sense if you want to eat here you would be well advised to book as it is very busy and popular. The food was lovely and I was unable to finish it! Nice breakfast too that was served promptly.... More

The check in was very quick and smooth and the staff really helpful. The room was a good size and great value for money. It was really comfortable. It was a bit warm for me but the room had a fan in the wardrobe, which was great. I was working all night so I never got chance to sample the... More

My wife has stayed here several times and always raves about it so when in Lancaster this weekend we dropped in for Sunday lunch. It is a welcoming environment with a nicely designed interior. It has a wide range of local ales and a good selection of wines. All the food that came out of the kitchen looked top notch.... More

We stayed in a luxury double and it was lovely. Big double bed, one of the best showers we're had in a hotel, big... More

After looking on their website and on here, was really looking forward to our stay. However the room we were given was tiny, nothing like the ones on the website. Also the bedding had stains on it so we just took it off, and there was a strong smell of smoke. On the plus side, the hotel is in a... More

Dinner superb breakfast superb-although the latter MAY mean that you miss lunch;we didn't as we arrived at lunchtime on Thursday,so can confidently say that this,too is superb. Staff were great-very friendly and welcoming,yet professional and efficient. Retains the great touches-coffee/tea at no cost, Bath House toiletries (shop in the town) in room VERY THICK bathrobes and towels in room
