We have just returned after spending a most enjoyable weekend break at the Holiday Inn, Lancaster. On arrival last Friday (30th April) we received a warm welcome from the reception team who checked us in quickly and efficiently. We had reserved an Executive Room (347) for our stay which we found to be very pleasantly furnished and overlooked the River Lune to the rear of the hotel. We received complementary bottled water and confectionery in our room which was also replenished for our second nights stay. This is a very welcome extra that many other hotels seem to have withdrawn and is much appreciated. We had a nice ensuite bathroom which had an adequate range of toiletries available. This hotel also has a Spirit Health & Fitness Club and a reasonable sized swimming pool. Although we did not have dinner in the Traders restaurant we did enjoy breakfast each morning.
Our stay last weekend coincided with the Scarecrow Festival which is held annually on the May Bank Holiday weekend (30th April - 3rd May) in the village of Wray which is just 8 miles from the hotel and well worth a visit. Lancaster city centre is just minutes away from the hotel with its vatiety of shops and the lakes are just a short drive away.
We did spend our second day touring around the Trough of Bowland which is easily reached from the hotel and well worth the visit.
The hotel is approx 400 metres off Junction 34 of the M6 motorway and is very convenient for anyone either stopping off on the journey North or for enjoying all that is available in this part of the country.
Overall we had a very enjoyable weekend break in the Holiday Inn, Lancaster and will return hopefully in the not too distant future. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone visiting the area.
