“Very helpful owner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

We were staying in Lancaster for just one night as we had a funeral to go to the next day. Andrea was extremely considerate and helpful, allowing us to leave our bags in our room and to return briefly after the funeral to change into more suitable clothes for travelling.

Room was fine - bed very comfortable and heating good. Decor was on the chintzy side and not to our taste but it didn't detract from the comfort. Breakfast was perfectly adequate. This was a very much better experience in all respects than we had the last time we stayed in Lancaster at the Royal King's Arms. Location couldn't have been better for us as we were travelling by train.

Overall I had a good stay. As the name would suggest it is close to the train station. It is in fact next to the train line but I did not hear the trains. Rooms would benefit from a bit of a refresh. Door suurounds needed a lick of paint in the bathrom. The threshold strip for the bathroom door no longer held the carpet down. Service was pleasant but impersonal. Contact not always easy as sometimes the phone goes unanswered. I would stay again.

I stayed in room 4 on the first floor; you could hear trains intermittently when awake, but I slept through and wasn't at all disturbed. It's not a particularly regular service from Lancaster and mostly freight trains overnight (so not many announcements).

The B&B could not be closer to the station (obviously); it's on a bridge. You're about 3 minutes' walk from the Storey, Lancaster (the venue for the conference I was attending), 5 from the Priory and Castle, and about the same distance from (what I think is) the very pretty town centre.

I checked in during the 5-8 p.m. slot and was met by a young man who I think was Andrea's son. He carried my case up & seemed well-prepared with all the details he had to give.

My room had a sliding door which led to the bathroom - that did have a tendency to make the room a bit steamy after showering, and I'm not sure how warm the room would be in winter (although there were several heaters so probably it would be okay). Hot water was plentiful and at a decent water pressure. There was a decent hairdryer, extra pillows, blankets, glasses etc. provided. My bin wasn't emptied every day but that wasn't a particular problem - toiletries etc weren't replaced either, but, then again, it was only £40/night. Towels seem to be replaced every other night & again there was a decent number & quality provided. The carpet had seen better days but the bedlinens/quilts etc were perfect.

My room was quite a decent size with TV, dressing table, mirrors etc. There's no full-length mirror which was a bit of a bore, but again that's a minor quibble.

Breakfast is served between 8 and 9 and was delicious. On the last day of the conference, Andrea very kindly let us leave our suitcases in the breakfast room & return (letting ourselves in with keys) to retrieve them later. Wireless was free and completely reliable - an open network, no struggling for passwords etc.

The bed was absolutely, absolutely fantastic. I slept incredibly well and was unbelievably comfortable.

Room Tip: room 4 is on the side *away* from the station, which I requested when I booked. It's a single.
