We stayed at Plato's for one night on a last minute impulse really. The location was perfect lovely village and amenities. No parking at location and though you get a free pass you can't really stop at any car park close to Plato's as all short stay you must go the farthest away at back of Booths supermarket, did not...

We recently stayed in Plato's, lovely hotel in a lovely location. Could not fault the room, lots a little touches and exceptional,quality of fittings. Lovely breakfast with plenty of choice. Able to park for free in one of the carparks nearby. Would definitely recommend. If you get chance visit the brewery as well worth it.

I live in Kirkby Lonsdale and I feel Platos covers everything for me!! The staff are friendly and seemed to be trained well- making cocktails etc. Usually very quick and attentive service although at busy times can be waiting a while as there is usually only 1-2 serving. If you are visiting for drinks it's fab they offer a wide...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Plato’s is set in the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale - once discovered never forgotten. On the edge of the Lake District, the Dales and The Forest of Bowland. A pretty little market town set in the Lune Valley with wonderful walking, stunning views and really good shopping.As a boutique hotel, we understand that one of the joys of going away is to have a touch more luxury than you do at home. So that is why in our higgledy piggledy old building, we have made sure that every room is unique. The only thing that is standard is comfort - the ultra luxury Vi-Spring beds, the crisp cotton linen, the stacks of fluffy white towels, the state of the art flatscreen TVs, the luxurious en suite bathrooms some with baths and others with rainfall showers, the complimentary bottle of Plato's wine and gorgeous local Sedbergh Soap Company toiletries.Downstairs we have a Bar and Restaurant - Proper home cooking with a twist made from fresh ingredients sourced on our doorstep, a wine list selected by grape so that you can try new variations of your favourite wine, and honest beers and ales for the drinker who knows the difference.All prices are per room per night and include our sumptuous breakfast which is served until 2.30pm so you really can have a lazy lie in (please note that the room cleaning service finishes at 10am and check out on day of departure is 11am). ... more   less
