The hotel is a pleasant place to stay, it feels welcoming. We stayed here in 2016, in a dog friendly room that was clean but a little tired looking. The room we had for our recent stay in January was much better, with modern decor, and newer furnishings. On both occasions I've stayed here, the rooms have been spotless, and...

We booked a 2 night stay for Easter as a family of 3, along with our labrador dog. We arrived a little earlier than the 3pm check-in but our room wasn't ready so we were made welcome in the bar area which is pet friendly. The room we booked was the luxury suite and awaiting us was a doggy treat...

We arrived at this hotel easter weekend . While booking in we were told we couldn't have two rooms together and as we have 3 younger children this wasn't ideal. But at 6pm there was not much we could do. The entrance hall was rather cluttered with lots of photos dating from 1991!!! Not really what you should see with...

We stayed here after reading the reviews on trip advisor. It was an overnight stop to break up our journey to Scotland. The room was clean and comfortable and just what we needed. We decided to have a meal in the restaurant and this was really good - a good selection, good quality and great service. Breakfast was great too!

Recently returned from our second two night stay at Lancaster House. We had a great time. Staying in a suite, our lovely room had a big comfy bed and a spacious, spotless bathroom. Good food and friendly, helpful staff added to our experience!

We always stay here when about Lancaster. The hotel is hard by the university but not part of it, though constantly awash with academics attending conferences, A couple of miles outside the city, the building is modern but charming and, if the weather is at all cold, there is a great log fire burning in the fine entrance hall.

I stayed here for three nights on a training course. The hotel was lovely - the room was nice and quiet and it was nice to be able to enjoy the gym, pool and sauna. The staff were attentive throughout my stay and the food was really good! Lots of gluten-free choices!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
From the balconied Reception Lounge, to the open fire you instinctively know that Lancaster House is a place to savour the good things in life, such as excellent cuisine from The Foodworks Restaurant, or a drink in the courtyard of The Sandeman's Bar. This relaxed elegance is also reflected in each of the 99 rooms. ... more   less
