We are frequent visitors to the area but this was our first stay at Platos and we were not disappointed - friendly welcome comfortable room and cosy lounge and despite being woken early by the bin lorry outside our window the fabulous breakfast more than made up for it

Evening meal at Plato,s , food was great , location stunning , service first rate. Value for money. You can't go wrong eating in this venue. Plenty of choice with real variety at a price that did not leave you smarting. No wonder this restaurant is always busy ,will be back as soon as possible.

We had a lovely stay at Plato's. The room was lovely and very clean, but could have done with a good reading light by the bed. Sitting by the wood burners with a hot coffee after shopping was lovely and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Overall a lovely stay and will certainly consider staying there again.

My wife and I spent an overnight stay at Plato’s on our way south from Scotland. We had read the glowing reviews and also had wanted to visit Kirkby Lonsdale since we had passed it many times on the motorway. On arrival, we were given a warm welcome and shown to our room, which was a nice touch. With no...

Excellent service, attentive and smiley staff who went the extra mile. Really good food. Great value for money. Would recommend a visit. A lovely touch of a hot drink and a cake on arrival. Even better if they had sent the free parking sticker before via email.

Arrived when the pub was very busy. Had tried to call to find out where to park but no answer. Managed to stop the car so one of us could go into the pub and we were directed to a car park. Please note parking is a good 5 minute walk so recommend dropping bags off first! Room was very...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Plato’s is set in the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale - once discovered never forgotten. On the edge of the Lake District, the Dales and The Forest of Bowland. A pretty little market town set in the Lune Valley with wonderful walking, stunning views and really good shopping.As a boutique hotel, we understand that one of the joys of going away is to have a touch more luxury than you do at home. So that is why in our higgledy piggledy old building, we have made sure that every room is unique. The only thing that is standard is comfort - the ultra luxury Vi-Spring beds, the crisp cotton linen, the stacks of fluffy white towels, the state of the art flatscreen TVs, the luxurious en suite bathrooms some with baths and others with rainfall showers, the complimentary bottle of Plato's wine and gorgeous local Sedbergh Soap Company toiletries.Downstairs we have a Bar and Restaurant - Proper home cooking with a twist made from fresh ingredients sourced on our doorstep, a wine list selected by grape so that you can try new variations of your favourite wine, and honest beers and ales for the drinker who knows the difference.All prices are per room per night and include our sumptuous breakfast which is served until 2.30pm so you really can have a lazy lie in (please note that the room cleaning service finishes at 10am and check out on day of departure is 11am). ... more   less
