Went here for platter and wine with friends. The staff are exceptional and the atmosphere was great. The food was just what we wanted as we didn't want a big heavy meal. We sat in a booth. The refurb is amazing the place looks great. Wide selection of drinks. We ended up staying there all night as we were cosy...

Comfortable bed, large TV and decent shower. Staff were great. We were told by the girl in the morning that we had a tab on our room when in fact we hadn't actually been in the bar. Someone had ordered three beers and quoted our room number, which isn't the hotel's fault and she waived it straight away when she...

Delightful hotel, with friendly extremely helpful staff. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. The location is excellent. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast and drinks at the bar when we arrived. As frequent visitors to Lancaster we are very pleased to have found the Royal.

A colleague and I stayed at the Royal whilst visiting our Lancaster based offices. The staff were absolutely lovely and nothing was too much trouble. I myself had the superior suite which was not only well decorated and very comfortable but also huge! A more than accommodating bed and all amenities you will need. The coffee machine was a nice...

This hotel and bar has been recently refurbished. We received a wonderful welcome from Kelly. The rooms were tastefully decorated and had everything you need for a night or two away. Located very conveniently for the city centre. 15 minute walk to the station. Breakfast was continental and plenty of choice. Staff helpful and friendly. The food in the bar...

Great review thank you. Our family bought the Royal last year, renovated and redecorated it opening in October. It has taken a lot of hours and hard work to get here and reviews like yours have made it all worthwhile. I shall pass on your comments to my daughter Kelly who will be very pleased to hear them. Hopefully we...

Went with a friend not knowing what to expect as platters, mean different things to different people. However the food was great, tempura prawns, calamari, sweet potato chips, chicken, onion rings all were yummy as was the dips sides etc. Really must give it a go, only criticism is the drinks are expensive, wine especially so beware. But would go...
