Just spent two nights at The Ashton in Lancaster and wished we could have stayed longer. The service was excellent, James the owner was welcoming and friendly. When we arrived we were greeted with home made cake, coffee and a nice glass of wine. Every time we returned after being out there was fresh coffee and cakes waiting for us....

My wife and I and our 3 month old boy stayed here for one night on our way back from Scotland and loved it. We were welcomed by our host James with a cup of coffee and a slice of caramel blondie which was delicious (and I don't normally like cake!) When we asked about local restaurants James tried to...

That was our introduction to The Ashton! James is a great host and with The Ashton he has a 5 Star gem that does not meet, it exceeds all your expectations! When we walked in the door, James warmly greeted us and asked if we would like a hot drink or a glass of wine and a blondie to go...

I'm from Lancaster originally, in fact, my Mum & Dad only live 5 minutes away but I thought I'd spoil us by staying here and The Ashton has utterly exceeded my expectations! Everything about the place is beautiful, from the stylish decor, to the amazingly stylish and comfortable rooms, incredible shower and bathroom products. It's the little touches that make...

This was our second trip to The Ashton (having first spent a few days there around the period of our getting married in 2010), and it was a complete delight to return. James, as ever, is incredibly warm and welcoming, and always thinks of details that, as a guest, you might overlook. The fact that the rooms have REN toiletries,...

I was lucky enough to stay at The Ashton for a couple of nights a week throughout November and December. I can honestly say the high standards and exceptional service never slipped - I loved my room and it was always impeccably presented. If you enjoy a nice bath I thoroughly recommend the ground floor grand room (and apparently the...

It is absolutely wonderful, a warm welcome, a great eye for detail... I loved my bed, the best night sleep i had in a long time. Breakfast is delicious. We had dinner one evening and it was very jummy. I can only agree with all the other good reviews - it's worth a trip to Lancaster just to stay at...

From the moment we stepped through the front door we felt totally at home, James is a fabulous host, glass of wine on arrival and he even baked me some wheat free scones when he found out about my several food allergies. We stayed for our 10th wedding anniversary in the loft room at the very top of the house,...

I have stayed in hotels across the world and this is up there. Suave, sophisticated and with fantastic attention to detail. The host James is welcoming and attentive. Decor is superb and although the Midland hotel is not too far away, there's only one place I'd come back to. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.
