Came for food for the first time with my other half. I had braised beef and he had the fish and chips. It's got to be said that both meals were fantastic. My OH who rarely says anything about meals and even more rarely finishes what he has on his plate both commented on how good his meal was and...

We stayed last night and were impressed yet again with the friendly and professional staff. David was excellent, very pleasant and particularly helpful. The room (number 3) was lovely overlooking the Main Street. We will be back!

We decided on a night away in Kirby Lonsdale, as it is one of those places not too far away from home that you always pass by and never actually visit and how glad we are that we chose Kirby Lonsdale and Plato's. The reason we booked it initially was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and my Wife's birthday....

I hesitate to say 'boutique' accomodation as this is rather a cliche these days. Perhaps the little sign on the bar stating 'Posh B&B' sums it up? Well no it doesn't as Platos is a - Classy modern bar/bistro during the day and night, serving quality ales and wine - Quality restaurant offering a great innovative, gastronomic experience - place...

We stayed here with our pup Teddy, our first weekend away with him. The hotel is extremely dog friendly and brought him water when we checked in and had a drink in the bar. A fabulous New Zealander even produced a dog biscuit from his pocket for him. There were a few other dogs in the bar area and Teddy...

We stayed in the Loft Apartment last week na have to say that the descriptions and photos do not do it justice. Spacious, very well fitted out, comfortable and with a lovely little patio. The hotel was excellent. Great staff, breakfast, atmosphere. The list goes on. Small problem with wi-fi fixed quickly, efficiently and pleasantly. Everything about this place is...

Have stayed at Plato's a few times now and thought I'd write a review - don't know why I hadn't done so earlier! The place itself is right in the middle of town and offers a very relaxing atmosphere. We had a dog with us and this was not a problem. They supplied a doggy bed, blanket, jar of biscuits...

Just returned from a night at Plato's with my husband, and we've both given it 10/10. We stayed in room 3 which was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable too. The bathroom had a double headed shower and nice toiletries. Hot drinks and cakes on arrival were a nice touch. We decided to eat in Plato's restaurant,...

We have had a fabulous couple of days at Platos. The staff are wonderful, they can't do enough for you. The food was so good the first night we had to taste it again on the second. The room was clean and very comfrtable. It was a nice touch to leave water and kit kats for us on both days....

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
