Your kind words about our hotel…

“Rooms are lovely and the location is just perfect, but it’s the history and the staff who make it so special: they really couldn’t be friendlier or more helpful. I hope we get many more happy visits!”

“I’d been recommended the hotel and was looking for somewhere offering afternoon tea on the way up to the Lake District. The location was perfect for this. The value of the fizzy afternoon tea was great. The sandwiches and cakes were so tasty, and the staff were attentive and extremely helpful and friendly. All the group were impressed with the afternoon tea, service and the look/atmosphere in the hotel too.”

“Loved our stay here. We had a double room, which was adequate for a 1 night stay. Very clean. No issues at all. Perfect spot for exploring Lancaster. We parked in the car park recommended, which was a short walk. Quirky hotel. Felt very comfortable & relaxed here. All the staff we spoke to were lovely. Especially the young lass in the morning when we were checking out. (Unfortunately we didn’t get her name). We would definitely stay here again.

Close to everything in the city centre. Great pubs & restaurants nearby. Close to both theatres.”
