        • Family with children
          7.8

          The location was excellent for shopping and the breakfast was very good. I also liked the roomy corridors.

          One of the rooms we booked must have had thin walls as we could hear everything that was said which was between 11.20 pm and midnight and then between 4.30 and 5.30 am. I did not complain but would have done if it had continued after midnight.

        • Older travelers
          4.6

          Location was ideal for visiting relatives living between Lancaster and Morecambe. Pleasant staff.

          Room badly in need of a freshen-up and en-suite was shabby. Excessive traffic noise very noticeable while in room. Limited car parking and poor car park layout resulting and wasted space.

        • Older travelers
          5.0

          we had a good deal but there were issues of concern

          room on 4th floor ,lift not working and when we reached room we found it not made up.so had to go back down again to reception to be assigned another room. No hot water next am cos of boiler problems an finally made breakfast to be presented green bacon which had to be returned.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          It was a bed for the night which is what we wanted

          The reception area wasn't what I would have expected. It needs a lift! Only my opinion.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          Bed was quite comfy but bedding very worn

          Room wasn't clean No water at all from basin hot tap Window held shut with screws = noisy and draughty in the awful weather Breakfast very limited for vegetarians Dead house plants, just remove them if you can't be bothered to water them! Shabby furniture Needing and overhaul

        • Single
          8.2

          The hotel is in an excellent location and has 'traditional' style. The breakfast room has to be seen to be believed! Fantastic value for money.

        • Family with children
          6.2

          It is central and near the station.

          Had to ask for maintenance to open windows; lift very difficult to use for elderly people; very slow service at breakfast; bed not remade on second day; cups for tea and coffee in bedroom not washed and replaced each day; ventillation in bathroom inadequate

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          The hotel food was excellent

          The hot water didn't work - it was only luke warm through the shower and even then I had to have the cold tap on the bath running at the same time. The electric socket where the kettle was plugged in didn't work so the kettle ended up on the floor. The bulb above one side of the bed had blown, the wrong one was given as a replacement and it blew as soon as it was put in.

          The City of Lancaster and the Hotel Location.

          The car park was a little small and oversubscribed, however we managed. The hotel was a little tired and could do with some modernisation but it did not spoil our stay.

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          location to station,shops castle,brilliant.

          room not cleaned,shower head filthy.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          Very friendly staff. Excellent location near the castle and city center. Good breakfast choice. Nice old style british atmosphere. Excellent parking location

          Old fashion shower and bathroom facilities. Window system old style hard to open.

        • Single
          6.6

          Good price

          Room was very small comparing to what was shown in the pictures. Staff were noisy in the morning, I couldnt sleep after 8am.

        • Older travelers
          4.6

          Location for an early start at Lancaster rail station

          Lack of attention to detail eg cleanliness of linen and room. Lack of attention by breakfast staff, and a one menu fits all from the hotel chain, which was not at all accurate for the Royal.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Excellent choice for breakfast and served until 10 am.

          The mattress on our bed was not very comfortable, I could feel the springs through it, far too bouncy, no support.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We needed twin beds (my mother and myself) and no other hotel could offer us that.

          I always look forward to a cooked breakfast but it was so disppointing. The bacon was thick and tasteless - had it been boiled?? The beans were mushy. Just disappointing. Was a lovely room but there was no ambiance - perhaps some piped music would have helped though I normally don't like that, but it needed something. I would stay again, that said, due to the location, car parking facilities and friendly staff.
