Great location
Easy to find great location, large bedrooms, clean bathroom, great lounge area, easily accommodated 4 adults for a weekend break, loved the generous touch of wine & cheese which were greatly appreciated by all, easily can walk to anywhere in a shirt time, lovely restaurants and bars, great food market & shops, really enjoyed the weekend, Would highly recommend

Dirty place
We find a very dirty property! She entrance was smelling horrible. On the furniture and floor a lot of dust. The bathroom terrible dirty, hair from other tourists allover.The windows very dirty as well. When we arrived, at 17:00, the beds were not changed. The carpets were not cleaned from many, many month. In the kitchen everything was dirty and the door of the frige couldn't be closed. A real desaster!!!

Perfect getaway
What a lovely place to stay. You are always wary wondering if the photos of the property are an accurate reflection. They were, the apartment is clean, the location is excellent being close to restaurants suiting all wallets. An ideal staging point for the lake district, Morecambe and the trough of Bowland. On arrival we were greeted with cheese, biscuits and wine, a lovely gesture. The owner is extremely helpful and knows the area well. His recommendations were spot on. Would we recommend to friends, definitely, would stay again yes.

Wonderful accommodation in great location
This is such a lovely place to stay! Quirky and unique, the accommodation is set over two floors at the top of the building and is tastefully decorated in a nautical theme echoing the history of the building. We arrived cold and tired after a long journey to find the heating and lamps had been turned on to welcome us, and the cheese, wine, and biscuits left on the table for us was a lovely additional touch; - there was even a tin of dog food and bowl to welcome any canine visitors! (and a poo bag!) It was very clean and well-equipped, and the sitting room and bedrooms were very comfortable. The view over the river was a bonus. The location is really good, with a 5 minute walk into Lancaster and plenty of pubs and restaurants within walking distance. It was perfect for us, and we will definitely be visiting Dodshon Place again.

Really enjoyed our stay. Great position for walks with our dog. Lovely location by the river in the heart of the City. Well equipped, nice touches: wine and cheese and even a can of dog food on arrival. Very clean and welcoming. Will definitely stay again.
