“A good location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for 3 nights during October half term. Friendly efficient check in, reservation details correct. Nice surprise on entering room - colouring things and sweets for child. Room was well presented and clean. We ate first evening in the restaurant, pleasant atmosphere but staff were a bit baffled when it got busy. Food ok but slightly pricey, great that kids eat free tho. Bar staff very accommodating of our requirements for milk each night for toddler. The only negative point was the pathetic shower! It simply dribbled out, put up with it as not there for long but a decent shower is expected at a Holiday Inn! Leisure facilities good, spa was excellent had 2 treatments and was very impressed.
We visited The Lakes, only 40 mins to get to Ambleside. A thoroughly decent stay apart from the pathetic shower!

Stayed October 2012, traveled with family

I was concerned to read that you found your shower to be inadequate and immediately asked the Maintenance Manager to investigate. However, I am pleased to hear that you found the rest of our facilities and services of good quality.

Stayed here for four nights on an advance saver rate whilst visiting our son who is at Lancaster University. It's about a 10 minute drive to the Uni back down the M6. All the hotel staff are very friendly and it's well presented. Felt like many other Holiday Inn's. We had a room with two double beds which had plenty of space. The only down side was that the room was very warm at night even in October. Opening the window didn't work due to road noise. The cooling system in the room was not working. We reported the fault but to our knowledge no one checked it out. We were told that the cooling system shuts off at night. So we didn't sleep particularly well.

After a delayed flight into Manchester we had a long drive north but were tired so pulled of the M6 looking for somewhere to stay and found this hotel just along the road. Very friendly reception staff, good room & evening meal and superb breakfast that set us up for an easy drive the next day. Just what we were looking for at the time and would go back again if I am in the Lancaster area. We were made to feel very welcome, thanks.

We arrived late needing warm, clean, comfy beds and bathroom and a quick check out in the morning. We got that. Breakfast for children is extortionate so we went over the road at the Premier Inn and ate at Cottams Field Brewers Fayre where children eat free when parents dine.

We hired a conference room, the staff were very helpful. We were able to set up the room the night before we needed it. We stay in hotels every week and Holiday Inn never let us down. Bedrooms are standard but always comfortable. Would be good to have wi if included in the

Was up in Lancaster on business & stayed here. Executive room upgrade was welcome. Clean, modern with a comfy bed.
Breakfast was a little hectic, so hard to find clean table & get coffee, but food quality good.

A friend and myself stayed here in July for diving at Capernwray Quarry. The rooms were big, clean and tidy with very friendly staff. There is also a swimming pool and gym here. The breakfast buffet in the morning was good and the staff will help to please.

The hotel is in a good location with a 5 min taxi journey into the town centre where there is a good nightlife.

Downside is the cost of the wifi.

Otherwise great value for money
