Just stayed in a studio apartment for 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed apart from food!!!! Set in beautiful surroundings and was really peaceful. Enjoyed using the leisure facilities as not many people seemed to use them so was lovely and quiet. Didn't eat at the hall itself but will...

Spent Saturday & Sunday at this establishment with our three sons, one of our son's partner and one of our granddaughters. All our apartments were very close together, and beautifully appointed.

We visit here quite regularly now, we absolutely love it. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. The kids love using the pool, playing in the park and feeding the ducks. The main hall has a lovely restaurant if you want a break from cooking and they often have entertainment on there too. You have to drive to go out...

A beautiful setting, great for a relaxing break in a serene environment. My criticism, the hotel clearly does not complete thorough health and safety checks. We arrived in the dark and was handed a map to drive and then walk to our accommodation. A map would be great if you could see. A total lack of lighting found us using...

This was a much needed break after a very stressing emotional family crisis. We could not have chosen a better location, hotel, facilities grounds, entertainment, staff the list goes on and on.

Beautiful building and grounds. Visited several rooms and all were spacious and clean as well as well equipped. Didn't have chance to visit the health spa but looked brilliant. However why do you have to pay extra for wifi, spa and booking out late? This spoils it completely for me.

Bristol, United Kingdom

Hi, I just wondered if you actually stayed at the same Thurnham Hall as me, and my family! We go once a year to Thurnham for a week long holiday, usually around Christmas time, but these days, always in the winter. We go in the winter as there really is nothing better than sitting in the 'Great Hall' in front of the gorgeous and atmospheric enormous log fire. There is a welcoming bar in the Hall, which hardly ever gets noisy (except for the occasional times when they are having a Christmas firm's do in the library next door, or a wedding reception), and it is very much in keeping with the rest of house. This means that you can snuggle up in one of their comfy armchairs, with your favourite book, and your tipple of choice (red wine for me, followed by a cup of coffee), and chat to other guests if you like, or just hunker down, on your own, or with your family (one recommendation that I would make, is that if you have children, particularly youngsters, you may prefer to holiday in another Diamond Resort, particularly "Pine Lake", North of Lancaster, - it is nearer the lake district, but as you are not far from the M6 at either place, it doesn't take long to get to the lakes anyway, - Pine Lake is at Carnforth, {of Brief Encounter fame} and is more set up for young children, with a good indoor play area, especially for them, plus the usual swimming pool, playground, ducks! etc). Once or twice a week, in the Hall, there is a pianist, and it is lovely to sit back, whilst feeling toasty warm in front of the fire, and listen to the lovely music he plays. I cannot imagine what room, or apartment, that you were staying in, as I have never come across accommodation here that is not only very comfortable, but also extremely clean (whether in Britain, or abroad, the Diamond Resorts that we have stayed at have always been immaculately clean). At Thurnham we have stayed in an apartment directly above the Great Hall, which was of course very in keeping with the style of hotel that Thurnham Hall is, on another occasion we stayed in a small, but gorgeous one bedroom cottage, attached to the main building, which was very cosy. These days we have to stay in the modern, and extremely high standard apartments that are elsewhere on the site, as i am now wheelchair bound, but the standard is so high, that I wouldnt mind living in that apartment all of the time! You also mentioned the toilets, I presume you mean the ones in the mansion house itself? I can only imagine that you only like modern furniture and surroundings, as the said toilets are quaint and in character with the whole house, I don't feel old when I use them, just more like I have stepped back in time, to a gentler era. Our holiday to Thurnham, is our indulgent, doing nothing but the three 'R's (relaxing, resting and reading, in this case) activities. Of course we do venture out occassionally, as the scenery is lovely, and Lancaster itself is a very interesting small county town, but we love returning to that lovely Great Hall room, and as we often stay there near Christmas time, we unwind in front of the twinkling lights of the big Christmas Tree. Thurnham Hall gets 5 stars from me, and in case you are wondering, I am a genuine guest, and not an employee! I am very sorry though, that you didn't find the magic in the place that we do, maybe action and adventure holidays are of more interest to you, I could easily recommend other Diamond Resort hotels to you, for those sort of holidays, if you are interested.
