This hotel is one of a group around the Lake District, where we always visit several times a year, but after ten years driving past Lancaster decided to try it. We were very impressed, the hotel is a little outdated, but clean, and the staff are energetic and really helpful. The pool staff were a little cool tho, but then... More

Maybe it was because the sun was shining on the fountain outside the very modern looking hotel when we arrived but this was a brilliant start to my short break holiday.

We have tried all of the hotels in the English Lakes groups (apart from Low Wood), & this one is definitely the best of the group. The hotel is well furnished, & the restaurant is especially worthy of mention. The food is excellent, & my steak was cooked exactly as I had requested it. The staff are all extremely pleasant...

We just had an overnight stop on the way to Scotland. Everything was really good about it. The location was not very prepossessing as it was on the edge of the university halls of residence. However this didn't matter for an oversight stop.

Have stayed here a few times just for a break. Good spa facilities - gym, pool, steam room, sauna. Oudoor jacuzzi very nice. Rooms decent and staff friendly. Breakfast has a good variety. Sandeman's bar, as an alternative to the restaurant, can get a little crowded early evening but serves good selection of meals and snacks.
