The best option for Lancaster”

We always stay at this hotel when coming to Lancaster. It is easy to find after junction 33 on the M6 and in a pleasant environment with great country views and the university at two paces. In winter there is a roaring fire in the entrance hall and there is every extra facility you could want: wifi, parking, sauna, swimming pool, etc. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the bathroom well-appointed (though the shower is the fixed type). Best of all is the breakfast, and you can also get good bar meals up to 10pm. We have not tried the restaurant which looks expensive.

Great”

Room is clean & tidy w/ good facilities. People is welcoming, friendly & helpful. Food is good w/ reasonably price. Location is q remote.. It's 10 mins walk to Lancaster Uni so it would be a good choice if you are going for helping kids settling down there. Yet if you are going for pleasure only, it'd be better to pick other hotels in town..

Nice Hotel in a Good Position”

We stayed at this hotel as my wife was at a conference at the University. I though took the opportunity to explore the area and for that it was very well positioned. It is also a great position if you are travelling North or indeed South and want somewhere to stay en-route with the advantage that the hotel is not on the main road and the car park seems secure. The bar will serve their or the restaurant meals so you have flexibility. The gym/pool etc are adequate - I liked the Sauna & Steam rooms and there is an outdoor Jacuzzi although this is not so obvious. Overall we would definitely use it again if the need arose.

Location close to M6. Friendly, helpful staff. Restaurant food.

Only concern was that the double room originally allocated had very small 3/4 size double bed. However reception staff changed this to room with queen size bed without any trouble. I would certainly recommend the hotel provided the room had a regular size bed.

Very comfortable and super staff”

Helpful reception staff, good size comfortable room, beautiful setting.

Surprised there was no lift but super helpful reception staff sorted us out a ground floor room so grateful to them for their help. Very busy hotel with several large tours staying. Booked dinner for 8pm, we were shown to a table promptly but we're then left waiting a bit too long before we were even asked for drinks order. The food was very good when it eventually arrived but the restaurant was heaving with tour groups and made our hoped for fine dining experience more like eating very good food in a noisy cafeteria! Breakfast was served up to 09.30, we went down at 08.40 to find most tour parties has already eaten and gone. However, so had most of the cooked buffet breakfast items and we had to wait for over 10 minutes for them to be replenished. Dinner and breakfast experiences therefore spoiled what would otherwise have been first class stay.
