Just had an absolutely brilliant New Year Eve party at Lancaster House Hotel. You can't get much better... Have tried alternative venues , but have always been disappointed. Lancaster House Hotel has everything!

The venue is easy to get to, the facilities are good. The evening was absolutely fabulous, with good food, service and entertainment. From the moment we arrived until we departed, we found the experience thoroughly enjoyable.

The tribute acts in the evenings entertainment 'Freddie Mercury' and 'The Blues Brothers' were fantastic and the dance floor was always full. (always a good indicator!)

The food and service for the dinner was top drawer, with the staff being very attentive.

If you are looking to choose a venue for 2014... then look no further. We'll be there again!!!

Room Tip: Choose a room that is away from lifts... The footfall outside a room near to the lift/stairs is alwa...

Went for a three night New Year break and had a fabulous time. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Everyone went out of their way to make it special. We have been going to the New Year Breaks for quite a few years now and definitely intend to keep up the tradition. Also went in May 2013 with my Daughter and grandchildren they had a ball, just loved the swimming pool and hot tubs.

Just come back from a 2 night New Year Break. Tim the Manager runs an excellant hotel and is friendly but keeps an eye out for what is going on. The food was top notch, the enterainment generally very good although the Freddie Mercury tribute would have been better if the backing sound hadn't drowned out the singer but the Blues Brothers tribute was excellant and funny.
Staff very good, friendly and although generally young were well motivated. The Spa was well equipped with new machines and was staffed so that it was clean and well organised. The whole two day offer was well presented and thought out

We visited Lancaster House for our New Year celebrations, its not the first time we have done this, and most certainly will not be the last.

We have been enjoying Lancaster House Hotel for a number of years now and love the place, it is really hard to describe it without sounding like you're on the payroll - which I can promise I'm not! I can honestly say you will not find a set of staff better anywhere in the UK, and I use hotels lots! I choose in my private life to spend my money at Lancaster House, and it is well worth it - great value. From the moment you are checking in, to the moment you check-out - every member of staff wants to make sure you have the best stay. A few examples:

Bringing umbrellas to the car as they realised we had lots of stuff to bring in and stopping us getting wet in the rain; altering menus to aid with our sometimes fussy diets; giving local advice on places to visit; even giving us the recipe for what I can say was the best Kedgeree I have ever tasted (New Years breakfast treat)

If you have the chance to stay at Lancaster House Hotel, please do - you will not be disappointed; we love it there, and hope you will too.

Room Tip: If you have a particular request, type of view, closeness to restaurant, etc - ask, they always acco...

Just returned from a four day visit. Had an enjoyable time in this clean and welcoming hotel. Food was excellent and the staff were friendly. The hotel is very accommodating and we will definitely make a return visit. We took advantage of the spa, swimming pool and sauna. Hotel catered well for all our needs ranging from an exuberant three year old to elderly grandparents.

We stayed in at Lancaster House as a Dog Friendly place to stop before Christmas. The staff were always welcoming and conversational (but not too intrusive).

The guests took advantage of the large open fire and reception area.

The dog was provided with bed, bowl and poop bags! (which we had with us anyway!).

The breakfast had good options, was well stocked. Plus the gluten free options and pescatarian options were very good.

The pool, gym and jacuzzi's were a good size. The outside Jacuzzi was entertaining in the extreme cold and wind of a Lancashire December.

Recommended.
