We very much enjoyed our 3 night stay, from the moment we arrived the service from Barrie (the Manager) and his staff was friendly and first rate. All our 3 rooms had a fresh decor and were very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was freshly cooked and excellent. It even passed our "sausage test" - we often find that smaller hotels use cheap and nasty sausages; not so at the Lancaster!. We had an evening dinner at the Bistro, that also was excellent and very good value for money too. The Hotel is easy to find and has free parking on site ( I hate having to park offsite!). The location is very convenient for town, pier, Tower etc, we walked everywhere other than a short bus / tram ride to the pleasure beach. Overall, very good value; I can certainly recommend the Lancaster!
