      • Couple
        6.2

        Proximity of hotel to both motorway and Lancaster city centre. Value for money

        Hotel is of a fairly good standard but it is looking a bit worn and shabby and could do with a spruce up

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        Good for the money paid. Very helpful staff

        Internet wasnt functional when I was there.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        The staff were helpful and the rooms reasonably large.

        Wifi not functioning, but when does work have to pay for it. Hotel decoration was rather 'tired'. 'Used' dinner trays left in corridor to well after lunch the next day.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        It was in an ideal location for Lancaster, Morecambe and the Lakes and it was just off the motorway. The breakfast was good and it had a decent tv that actually worked. Staff were freindly and helpfull

        The room was not as clean as I have come to expect from the holiday inn. The bathroom had not been properly cleaned in some time and you could see this round the bath, sink and the floor round the toilet. There were cobwebs on the ceiling in the bedroom, and although I requested a smoking double, when we got to the hotel they said we had requested a non smoking double. Luckily, I had a copy of the original booking. We got a non smoking twin. It was fine but it meant we slept in a double bed rather than a king size that we are used to. There was a wedding on the Saturday night and as our room was above it we could hear the music clearly and if you are in a room that is at the front of the hotel the traffic is bad and you can hear it, even through the night.

      • Group of friends
        4.2

        Nice size rooms, modern and clean, comfortable.

        Seemed short on staff when we arrived late evening! And not very organised.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Excellent hotel and always a bonus if you can bring your dog.

        Breakfast was not as extensive as I expected.

      • Family with children
        6.2

        Chosen for it's location

        Disappointing for a Holiday Inn, we expected more, Pool by booking only & we were unable to book at a time that was convenient, A main reason for booking this hotel! Incorrect information from reception regarding evening menu, No hot water for shower after 9:00pm!

      • Older travelers
        4.2

        The location was very convenient for our needs.

        The staff were quite surly,apart from one gentleman seving coffee at breakfast.The bedroom was poorly set up with the very small double bed pushed within one foot of the wall making it difficult to get in and out of bed.Bed and bedding were of poor quality.Towels also were thin and small.Breakfast was poorly stocked with only one small French loaf at any time,though the hot food was quite good.No safe in room as per room description.We ate out but were billed for an evening meal and drinks-no apology for this mistake.

      • Single
        9.2

        Large, clean room with excellent facilities. The dining area was busy, but there were coach parties staying when I was there, however the staff were friendly and efficient and the food was very good, with a good choice at reasonable prices. You can also eat in the bar. I would visit again.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        The staff were very friendly and welcoming, I really liked the atmosphere they created. The room was a good size, clean and comfortable.

        I was surprised and a bit disappointed that there was no wifi available, only costly wired internet access at £15 a day -- would only use this if I was travelling on business and it would not work anyway with our iPad. Also I would have liked a bit more information about the hotel itself in the room -- there was a room service menu but not a restaurant one, or details of time and cost of breakfast (except room service breakfast), newspaper delivery etc.

      • Couple
        6.6

        Clean and functional. Easy access from the M6 and within close proximity to Lancaster.

        Very expensive breakfasts - £15 per person. My advice would be to go to the Brewers Fayre over the road and pay £7.99 for as much as you can eat (cooked and continental breakfast). Also the cost of wi-fi was extortionate - £15 for 24 hrs. Why it isn't free in this day and age I do not know.

      • Single
        5.4

        proximity to city centre

        booked a double room, even requested it on booking form, hotel messed up booking and gave me a twin.... unable to rectify the problem, still charged me full price and staff unwilling and un friendly when trying to sort the problem out..in the morning they just slide a bill under your door. poor service.

      • Family with children
        8.2

        Represents excellant value for money. Room comfortable & clean. If on room only basis pay for breakfast on arrival & save £5 per person. Excellant choice at buffet breakfast, food hot, not left standing for ages. Tea/coffee hot & regularly topped up.

        Minor point, no shower gel in bathroom.

      • Older travelers
        5.8

        the spa facilities and the swimming pool

        the bar shut around eleven and would not take cash, i did not sleep because of doors banging a couple arguing a light flashing on and off outside and shinning into the room and a group of lads who were banging about until about four in the morning

      • Family with children
        7.4

        The breakfast was brilliant and well worth the money.

        In the .pool on the morning people were jumping and diving into the pool even though there were huge signs asking not to. They were being loud and obnoxious ( probably a stag do ) Did'nt stay in the pool long because of this..Probably does'nt happen all the time, but the staff did nothing when a girl complained that one of the lads was naked.jumping into the pool.
