“Good price, nicer than Premier Inn, much nicer than Travelodge”
Reviewed 5 December 2011

We've regularly used Premier Inn and Travelodge when visiting our sons at university. We needed to make a last minute mid-week trip to Lancaster, researched availability and prices and choose the Holiday Inn because it was cheapest at the time at £59 without breakfast.
Our standard room was more attractive than those at Premier Inn and much nicer than Travelodge, and very clean.We did't have breakfast, so can't comment on that.
We will always check Holiday Inn prices for future trips.

Good buffet breakfast with traditional hot, full english ,cereals or continental.
Swimming pool small and crowded with children( was when we visited) saunas good,modern changing rooms but where a bit untidy.

Room Tip: ask for one at the back of the hotel.

Just come home from a great weekend in Lancaster staying at the Holiday Inn, on caton road just off junction 34 of the M6.
We arrived at 3pm to be greeted by the helpfull reception staff who explained how to get round the one way system in Lancaster and the opening times for the health centre and restaurant.
Had a nice swim and work out in the gym before dinner in central Lancaster
We asked for a quiet room at the back of the hotel away from the busy main road.
Room was clean and well equipped with a LG 32 TV with many channels but £16 for 24 hour super fast internet + movies is very expensive !!
After a great nights sleep we were down early for breakfast which was excellent with a great choice of cooked items and fresh fruit.
Another full day looking round lancaster city centre including Lancaster castle and back to the health centre for an afternoon swim and sauna.
Lots of young kids and babies in the dinning room on sunday morning enjoying the great breakfast.
Great stay and very helpfull staff at a top hotel Thank you Holiday Inn

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back if you want a good night sleep Clay pigeon shooting on saturday morning...

It is out of tomwn but is you have your walking feet on it only takes 29 minutes to walk along the well lit riverside path into town and along the canal banks. There is lots of walking opportunities, and some great pubs in town. Try the sultanof Lancaster for some excellent spicy food, mmmmmm.

have stayed here for 1N a few times enroute to scotland, its a nice and cosy place for bed and breakfast. breakfast spread is nice and the staff is attentive and warm. but quite a bit off the main city center. there is a small stream flowing right next to the property.

Dear Zeeshan S

Further to your recent stay at the Holiday Inn Lancaster, I would like to thank you for taking the time to post details of your experience on Trip advisor.

I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed breakfast and will share this with the team.

We are lucky to be located next to the River Lune. The River Lune derives its name from the Old English word Lon which has its origins in an Irish Celtic word meaning health giving. The source of the river lies at the northern brow of Ravenstonedale Common on the edge of the Pennine Hills.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Best Regards

Just spent two nights there. What a lovely place. Breakfast was buffet style, hot & cold food available. £120 for two inc breakfast for two nights. 24 hr reception, staff very friendly. If not a Priority member pick up a leaflet at reception to join, well worth it if you use this chain of Hotels regularly. We enjoyed 10% discount on drinks at the bar (gold PC member ) Drinks were a bit pricey otherwise. Enjoyed a lovely swim before departing this morning, will definately stay there again.Although close to motorway slept soundly. We had a car so getting out & about easy as outside town centre.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Lancaster for one night last weekend, in an executive double room with B&B for £80. Room was nicely decorated, well appointed with decent beds, small table & chairs, large flat-screen TV, fridge, etc. Standard rooms are the same size but not as recently decorated no fridge, etc. Room and hotel in general appeared clean and tidy. Only complaint would be that end of toilet roll holder on wall was missing causing it to shoot off when pulled! Has leisure facilities but did not get chance to use. Breakfast in the morning was excellent – plenty of choice and hot food really tasty – only issue was the usual very slow self service toaster. All staff encountered were helpful and friendly. There is plenty of free car parking and the hotel is only 2mins from Jcn34 of the M6 so very easy to access. There is a bus stop outside hotel and you can get into centre of town in < 10mins for ~ £1.50 single – I would recommend this as parking in centre of Lancaster is not great. We walked in as sunny day and took ~45mins at a slow pace. If you want easy access to motorway and out of the buzz a little, then I would highly recommend this hotel.
