We had a lovely weekend at Platos. The staff were really friendly, the room was very comfortable, the food was superb. Lots of nice small touches made it very special. The rooms are above a pub, so can be a little noisy, but the whole place has a great ambience and the landlord really knows his wine. Definitely plan to... More

All the staff were very friendly and made you feel at home. Breakfast was amazing. Special offer for early evening meals which was great value and the food was excellent. Lovely village and hotel right in the centre. Would love to have stayed longer and look forward to returning at some future date.

Outstanding food at lunchtime in a friendly, cosy atmosphere, plus bargain reduction on price before 2.30. Both of us were really pleased and would choose this place every time we're in Kirby Lonsdale.

I reviewed Platos restaurant when we returned from our 2night stay in June 2016 The hotel is very relaxed yet still has an air of Classiness about it We stayed in the John Ruskin room which is very luxurious and has a view out on to the Main Street The reason I only gave 4 stars was we had problems...

Needed an overnight base in Kirkby Lonsdale to attend a function in the town and found Plato's on Booking.com. Wasn't sure it was the best choice at the time but happily proved otherwise as the hotel, bar and restaurant were all excellent.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Plato’s is set in the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale - once discovered never forgotten. On the edge of the Lake District, the Dales and The Forest of Bowland. A pretty little market town set in the Lune Valley with wonderful walking, stunning views and really good shopping.As a boutique hotel, we understand that one of the joys of going away is to have a touch more luxury than you do at home. So that is why in our higgledy piggledy old building, we have made sure that every room is unique. The only thing that is standard is comfort - the ultra luxury Vi-Spring beds, the crisp cotton linen, the stacks of fluffy white towels, the state of the art flatscreen TVs, the luxurious en suite bathrooms some with baths and others with rainfall showers, the complimentary bottle of Plato's wine and gorgeous local Sedbergh Soap Company toiletries.Downstairs we have a Bar and Restaurant - Proper home cooking with a twist made from fresh ingredients sourced on our doorstep, a wine list selected by grape so that you can try new variations of your favourite wine, and honest beers and ales for the drinker who knows the difference.All prices are per room per night and include our sumptuous breakfast which is served until 2.30pm so you really can have a lazy lie in (please note that the room cleaning service finishes at 10am and check out on day of departure is 11am). ... more   less
