This is the first time I've stayed here and I can guarantee not the last. I needed somewhere to stay for 4 nights in this vicinity for work and Plato's was fabulous. Staff were so friendly and chatty and as a lone female traveller, never felt 'alone'. Unfortunately, I wish I had been alone the evening I found a big... More

Had a pleasant couple of days staying at Plato's which was dog friendly and everyone very welcoming. A couple of little niggles like the car park pass with your room number and accommodation name emblazoned on it. We covered the relevant details but w ere nervous leaving the car 10 min away . Hoping to enjoy a relaxed breakfast in... More

We should ask for discount for spending so much in the hotel and bar and restaurant in the last couple of years only kidding. We had room four this time and it's huge.this place never fails which includes the staff. You will definitely... More

Having booked due to the hotel being recommended for it's food we were disappointed to find that due to a kitchen problem they couldn't provide the full menu. However the staff handled this very well offering to see if they could ring around and get us in elsewhere. We decided to wait and see what WAS on the menu and... More

Lovely place, nice food spoiled by rude blonde curly haired waitress who spoke down to another member of staff and displayed poor service skills to me. Shame but spoils what should be enjoyable experience.

What a find. Kirkby Lonsdale is picture postcard perfection in the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales. Plato's is tucked away in a corner of the town centre, and is a well presented and friendly bar / restaurant / hotel. The ground floor is a buzzing bar out front with a solid brasserie restaurant at the rear. Reception is at the... More

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
