Hotel, although centrally located had on site parking and was easy to find. The room I had was comfortable, contemporarily decorated and very clean with modern on suite facilities. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

We got a room upgrading, the room was amazing, huge, clean, warm, in the whole very very confortable. Very central position, the breakfast although it is described 'continental' offers a range of things as bread, ham, cheese, cereals yogurt sweets etc. All this this in front of a fire place !!

We stayed here one night en route to Scotland. Staff had been really helpful & friendly on the phone ahead of our visit (including highlighting the £5 voucher to spend in the bar/restaurant if we booked direct) and continued to maintain friendly and helpful service throughout our stay. The hotel has recently been refurbished and the rooms were lovely: quiet,...

Fantastic hotel, the central location is perfect. Just a short walk around a corner to the city centre. Very friendly staff, refurbished in 2016, all new, rooms are very clean and really comfortable. Bar area is great. Has small parking area at the back or plenty of parking nearby. Lancaster is a terrific little city.

Quick overnight stay on a longer journey. Excellent welcome and stay in this recently refurbished hotel and bar. The Robinson family have recently taken over this establishment and are working hard to make it a great place. Our room was great with an amazingly comfy deep mattress.
