What is so depressing is the food offering. A restaurant with no atmosphere and evening food of very poor quality. The waiting team were...

Holiday Inn Lancaster has easy access - if you're coming from the North on the M6. If coming from the South, take the A683 exit (A589 for Lancaster), J34. Arrived on Friday afternoon and everything traffic wise was pretty free and easy. The double room was airy and spacious but the bed was just a double, not King-size luxury, so...

Superb, friendly service throughout the hotel, especially from the waiting staff who were eager to please. Tasty menu with generous portions. Very comfortable large beds, however, the bath towels could be larger!

What a treasure! Excellent location to break a journey. This hotel must have opened recently as everything is squeaky clean, comfortable bed and doors that close quietly. The staff are really friendly. Top marks for all the staff!

We booked this hotel as an overnight stay when travelling home. We usually stay at the Premier Inn but the Holiday Inn was reasonably priced and also had an indoor pool. We booked a room with 2 double beds to ensure a good nights rest. We arrived a bit early for check in so had a drink in the bar...
