This was a special w/e away to help celebrate a birthday. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel special. We were greeted like old friends by James, the owner. It was dark, cold and grim outside but the winter chill was chased away with freshly toasted crumpets and a large glass of mulled wine, relaxing lights and...

I found this hotel via random internet searching. What a find! This is truly unique hotel and a real gem in Lancaster. James is an excellent host and greeted us with wine and cake. We'd chosen room 1 on the ground floor which was amazing. The bedroom was massive with lovely large windows overlooking the gardens. The bathroom is amazing...

Throughout the decor is so tasteful with...

A last minute booking and what a fantastic find. Lovely staff, beautiful building/rooms and fantastic breakfast, with a great choice, perfectly cooked and presented. With 5 rooms in total, a small but lovely 'boutique' guest house. Already looking forward to our return!

Another wonderful stay from the welcoming mulled wine and crumpets through the superbly appointed bedroom to the BEST BREAKFAST EVER ! James is so professional and attentive. THE BEST REASON TO GO SOUTH FROM SCOTLAND in the car.

Very comfy bed & excellent breakfast in the morning. Missed James when we checked out but we found out our dog would be welcome to stay. So we will be back in the New...
