We travelled from down South to visit our grandson who is studying at the university. The hotel is on the edge of the campus and a short walk to the main spine of the University, ideal for anyone visiting relatives studying here.

Very clean, quite place to spend holidays or bussiness, for coyples or families. Very near to the city center. Friendly staf. Rich breakfast. Free parking. The Lancaster University is next door, so it is handy for those who want to visit their students.

On my first trip I received a free upgrade to a suite which was positively luxurious. Whilst not so fortunate this time the standard accommodation is well appointed and excellent value for money. Whilst quite modern the...

There were 10 of us ranging from 4 years old to 84 years old and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Even our dog was welcomed with a bed, bowl and treats. Enjoyed sitting by the lovely log fire in reception which was kept...

Food in the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast was excellent . The minor hiccup over the wait at dinner was dealt with expertly by the staff and the...

My wife (a wheelchair user) and I researched this hotel and also confirmed our specific needs with them prior to making the booking. They confirmed that we had a ground floor room with a walk in shower and that the hotel catered to the needs of the disabled. We booked for three nights and were very much looking forward to...

We booked the Lancaster House as we wanted a disabled friendly good quality hotel for a much needed rest and 3 night break. I am a wheelchair user so we phoned the hotel to book as we wanted to make clear what our specific requirements were. We arrived and were quite satisfied with the ground floor room allocated, it's ensuite...

Just returned from a 2 day break at Lancaster House Hotel. Wonderful stay, staff friendly and welcoming. Great outside hot tub (even in cold November rain). Lovely warm log fire in Lobby where you can relax with a drink on the sofas. Restaurant has good choice of excellent food at reasonable prices . Highly recommended.

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
