Stayed here last week to break up drive to Wales, wasn't impressed. Food in lounge decidedly average, grandaughters meal in particular was almost inedible (pasta with tomato sauce & meatballs). Room was ok , no shower gel only shampoo in room. Have stayed here many times in past but seems to have gone downhill somewhat, will find an alternative in...

Dear Mike P I was very disappointed to read that your dissatisfaction with your most recent stay means you will choose to lodge elsewhere. We do our best to maintain standards of excellence and I know the Head Chef and his team will be upset to read your comments about your granddaughter's meal. I do hope you will reconsider and...

Everything you'd expect from a holiday inn. Clean, comfortable and our room had a lovely set up where the bed was facing the window which meant the sunlight woke you up in the morning. As a secret getaway on a budget it ticks every box and Lancaster has a beautiful high street as we discovered. Would stay again and probably...

Outdated hotel in need of refurbishment pretty soon. Rather large rooms, with bathrooms of adequate size. Clean sheets and a comfortable bed are great pluses. The set back is the odour in the room - smells more like a urinal than anything else. The wifi is slow, real slow - you can't expect to do any work, unless you are...

Just an overnight stop on route to Isle of Man. Nice hotel, great parking, easy to find. Good size room. Bar and food good. The only thing we did not like was people in the restaurant using full size lap tops - time & place for everything.

Standard older holiday inn is showing its age in public areas staff are very nice and room was spotless. I have deducted one star because breakfast was very busy the staff were working very hard but there were delays before some items were replaced however the leisure club is clean and the water warm reservations are minor

I stay at this hotel whenever I travel back and forth to Scotland. It is very convenient for the motorway as it's just off the junction and so easy to get on in the mornings, but also right on the river Lune cycle track allowing you to use it for walks, runs or rides. Well equipped with a good gym...
