Just got home from a fantastic 1 nights stay at Plato's. I can't speak highly enough about the whole experience. All the staff were excellent, and so helpful. Our meal was outstanding, as is their wine list. The bedrooms are a credit, with everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel and more, I especially liked the twin rain...

Ideal location for the Lakes or the Yorkshire Dales. Traditional market town of Kirkby Lonsdale offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere with Plato's giving a very comfortable and stylish stay. The bar area is more contemporary than traditional but with two wood burners and comfy chairs it was still a welcoming and friendly place to spend the night. Food and...

A group of friends (3 couples) stayed for the weekend. Perfect break. Plato's is great. Very comfortable accommodation, excellent food, both breakfast and a la carte evening meal. Ideal location in Kirkby Lonsdale centre. Staff very welcoming and pleasant. The mix of bar, restaurant and hotel works really well. Definitely recommend this place.

We stayed this weekend in Plato's as a pre Valentines treat. We have had many lovely weekends there and are never disappointed. This time we stayed in room 7 which has a great view down the high street and a lovely cosy room. We have previously been in room 4 and 8, both of which are also really nice rooms....

We ate on a Saturday night. The restaurant was full so we were seated in the bar area which was fine. Service was friendly and efficient although it was busy. Food was all good. Top marks for the sticky toffee pudding and absolutely excellent espresso martinis ((incredible vale at £6.50). Highly recommended.

It's so nice to have a room where everything works beautifully. The shower, TV, heating, even the kettle - and the WiFi just started working as we walked into the room - no long codes to key into our phones and tablet. The pillows were downy soft and the bed was extremely comfortable. The decor of the hotel is a...

The staff were attentive and the chef delivered well cooked delicious food the whole experience was relaxing and spot on well done ladies. (Not...

Enjoyed an overnight stay in Plato's as a treat from my daughter. We have eaten in Plato's on a recent visit to KL and were very impressed. Arrived Saturday around 2 o'clock and were treated to tea and cake. The room (number 1) was beautifully decorated, furniture and soft furnishings are of a very high standard. White fluffy towels and...

Hard to believe, but Christmas dinner with no turkey. Apparently, you had to book turkey when making the reservation. I suggested maybe we should have been told that at the time of booking, and as the date of the reservation was the week before Christmas, couldn't they have assumed the reason for the visit? Shame because we had our office...

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
