I had to be in Lancaster for a meeting and so we decided to make a week-end of it. I don't know if it was because it was half-term but we found it very difficult to find anything at a reasonable price.We booked the Penny Bridge on their own website and found a three nights for the price of two deal - this included breakfast. We arrived ok but the traffic in Lancaster was a nightmare. We found the hotel easily enough and were checked in pleasantly and efficiently - and give the flask of fresh milk !
The room, 27, was fairly large and had twin beds that had been joined to provide a king size bed.The room was comfortable,warm, well appointed and tastefully decorated.The bathroom was large and also very tastefully equipped though the hand basin was a triumph of design over function. Despite its size it hardly held any water,the plug didn't fit properly and we lost the soap down the pug hole more than once! However this insignificant probem was the only one we encountered during our stay. Every member of staff we encountered in the hotel or in the bar was unfailingly cheerful polite and helpful.The bed was very comfortable and we didn't hear any sound during the night either from the street or from other guests. Breakfast was beautifully cooked and presented.We had a drink or two in the bar and whilst we didn't eat there the food looked very good and was reasonably priced. The hotel is ideally sited for visiting the town and we would happily stay there again and would willingly recommend it to others
