Accommodation Description:

This 17th Century city centre hotel is an owner managed, stylish and modern interpretation of a traditional coaching inn. Officially 4 stars, the hotel comprises of sixteen contemporary ensuite rooms with luxury fittings. Please note, smoking is not allowed in any of the bedrooms and all our guest rooms are ensuite with shower or shower plus bath.

Situated below the hotel is an award winning bar with eight cask ales, a vast selection of malt whiskies and over twenty wines all available by the glass. The hotel bedrooms have been refurbished to the highest standards. All offer designer furnishings, flat screen televisions and bespoke Italian bathrooms.

There is a cot available at no extra charge and can be positioned in any of the bedrooms apart from the smaller standard rooms. This pub is part of C2 Original Inns which also owns the newly refurbished Duke of Edinburgh Hotel (Barrow-in-Furness) and is the proud owner of Lancaster Brewery. The hotel has sixteen ensuite rooms including singles, doubles, luxury rooms and suites.

In June 2006 the hotel installed secondary glazing to all front facing rooms to ensure a peaceful night's sleep. The hotel is ideally situated in the heart of the historic city centre for all the city's tourist destinations (including the Castle and Priory) plus St Martins College and the University. Post Script - following comments made by guests on this website we have replaced all the radiator thermostats and the level of heating in the rooms is now fully controllable.

In addition we have introduced the option of pre-ordering your breakfast to assist those in an early morning hurry. Thanks for the feedback !
