“Weekend stay”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Booked for a weekend away

Rather a nice place, not too far from the city centre, and on a busy road but not too noisy
Our room was small but wonderfully presented with large shower

Breakfast was plentiful and the cooked Doorstop a recommendation
Evening meal good value, beers all Thwaites, excellent but a little pricey

I'd happily come back again as all staff friendly and helpful

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

We are really glad you enjoyed your stay here with us at Penny street bridge. The cooked Doorstop is definitely one of the firm favourites o our breakfast menu along side the Full Lancashire!

Great location, although very busy road but not disturbed by it in our room. Room very good size, clean and well equipped with the usual but also hot chocolate sachets....lovely! Hotel bar was very quiet for a Friday evening, but plenty of other places close by to go. Staff very friendly, only grumble is breakfast took a while to come. Wifi only on ground floor.

Hi, we are really happy that you enjoyed your stay here at Penny street bridge. We think all rooms in a hotel should have a hot chocolate option also! We pride ourselves on the fact that all our food is cooked fresh and to order so this can be why sometimes food can take a little longer to arrive. We hope that you come back to stay again with us when you are next in Lancaster.

A very comfortable room with good sized en-suite in an excellent location beside the canal. All local attractions were within walking distance. We spent three nights here and were very comfortable. Staff were friendly. The bar downstairs was a welcome amenity after a day's walking. Overall, we had an enjoyable three night stay.

Stayed while passing through for one night.

Friendly staff, room clean and functional.

Only issue was the music from bar next door but that stopped at 23.00.


Breakfast very good, fresh and well made.

Parking is close by, just across the road.

Stayed here overnight before a full days steam hauled train journey from Lancaster. A very warm and friendly welcome, pleasant room - modern fittings and clean. Didn't have breakfast as it was provided on the train. Would certainly stay again if ever needing to stay in Lancaster. Recommend.

Reviewed 29 July 2014

The hotel is located in the historic town centre, overlooking the canal. While the exterior reflects the history, the rooms are modern and very well designed making them extremely comfortable. Even though the pub/restaurant is popular the rooms are very quiet. The shower was so wonderful that I decided to wash my hair, which is truly something as I have natural hair which doesn't do "wash-and-go"! The rooms are air conditioned, which was a blessing on such a hot weekend, and there is free WiFi. The staff and service were excellent. The breakfast is great, even for vegans, however there is an extra cost. There is a lounge room, with comfortable sofas to leisurely read the newspapers or play board games, which is exactly what we did before we had to catch our train.

Room Tip: It's located on a busy road so choose a room facing the back garden.
