Perfectly located (handy for buses, and just across the road from the canal cruise station) period building with really pleasant staff, great service and a lovely room. Less than £4 in a taxi from the train station. Did exactly what it says on the tin - we were specific at the time of booking about a twin room not too much walking distance from the lift and that's exactly what was waiting for us. The lift is silent, the beds are great and we slept really well. The room was lovely and of a good size for two people, and the secondary glazing meant very little outside noise. A couple of minor noise occurrences within the hotel but they were insignificant (noise from water pipes in adjacent rooms running showers - of short duration and common in any period property, and the usual noise of people coming and going from other rooms, again completely expectable in a hotel and in no way a disturbance). The AC worked well and we could get the room temperature exactly as we wanted it. Tiny issue with the bathroom floor but this was noted for addressing immediately we let staff know. The bathroom is not a uniform square (period building again - perfectly in order) and Kate Moss I aint (!) but there' was still plenty of space and a good-sized drench shower which was lovely. The food was excellent and from a wide ranging but well-sized menu, there 6 real ales on which were all great and everything was served by knowledgeable staff to whom nothing seemed to be too much bother - in fact, it's worth saying again that the staff definitely shine here. Another thumbs up from us for the fresh milk flasks, and the chef is 3 for 3 with perfectly poached eggs! Everyone was really helpful with local gen for places to go and how best to get there. A joy to stay in, particularly as this was our first visit to Lancaster. We will be back, and it will be to stay here - excellent.
