Our second stay at Platos and it is now our favourite place to stay!! Great welcome, lovely rooms, great ambience and amazing food - what more could you wish for? Actually there is more - it's dog friendly too - two rooms (I think) are able to accommodate dogs and blankets and treats are provided. A table in the bar... More

My family & I visited 'Plato's' yesterday evening & we were very happy with our choice, the restaurant is modern & contemporary, the air conditioning was a real bonus & the menu was excellent, it was incredibly difficult to decide on what to choose. We will definitely return very soon.

Called in on our first night in Kirby Lonsdale for a drink and stayed 3 hours over a bottle of wine. Not knowing the format we asked if there was a taxi we could ring to get back to our hotel. Apparently it is a one-man taxi service who comes from out of town and you have to book him.... More

What a lovely place. We turned up with no booking and we're welcomed by a friendly helpful gentleman. He arranged our room, gave us a parking permit for a car park nearby. We returned after parking to find he had found a table for us to dine at Platos that same evening. (They were full but managed to fit us... More

Stayed for 2 nights in May with the dogs. Very friendly staff always happy to help. No problem with the dogs, although the short walk down to the river is quite steep and offers the only real open space for the dogs nearby. Food was excellent, and the breakfast is worth its own recommendation with locally sourced produce of exceptional... More

A group of friends and I stayed at Plato's for one night, celebrating a 30th birthday with a night away and a meal in Plato's restaurant. Not only was the apartment both beautiful and immaculate, with a lovely view overlooking an old church and fields at the back, the food in the restaurant was amazing. The service we experienced was... More

Visited here for evening meal at cheap rate deal. Both of us had 3 courses and shared a bottle of wine. Cost £46.00. Food was really nice and the service was very good too. You can see the kitchen from the restaurant which was a nice bonus. Would return for sure! Well done.

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
