I have commuted past almost every day for 10 years and never found the opportunity to stay. In helping to sponsor and launch a nearby free photographic exhibition the Midland showed another dimension to what I found to be a charming hotel full of art deco character, a real hotel atmosphere, not a functional box of people. The staff were genuinely welcoming, professional and friendly. The room was great- the seaview added an extra relaxing feel. My evening meal and breakfast were exquisite. All in all a fabulous short stay that I would thoroughly recommend and intend to treat myself to more often.

Room Tip: A sea view room rewards you with a lovely sunrise and sunset over Morecambe Bay looking up into the...

Popped in on a Sunday evening after my partner and I had been strolling down the prom. Had a nice beer and a spirit and mixer first and then decided to stay for a coffee.

I was very surprised that an espresso (single) and a latte came to over £7.50. Myself and partner live in West London and work in bars in Chiswick and Fulham, and these and many other establishments in these affluent areas charge nowhere near that. Seemed on the high side.

I'm from Morecambe and am proud that it's home to the Midland, and have enjoyed lots of visits in recent years.

Dear Paul J

Thank you for taking the time to post your review following your recent visit to the Midland.

I was glad to read that you enjoyed your visit but at the same time a little disapointed to read that you found the pricing of our Tea & Coffee to be on the expensive side. We have done much research when looking at our pricing for all our Food & Drink and I would like to re-assure you that within the local area our prices are very reasonable. I am only sorry that you did not find this to be the case.

I do hope that we can welcome you back to the Hotel in the future.

Kind Regards

I visited Morecambe during the carnival weekend and popped into the Midland for a drink and something to eat. It was incredibly busy but one member of staff went out of her way to find us somewhere to sit and serve us. I think her name was Daniella. Lovely food and nice atmosphere as always in the bar despite the number of people.

We are I would say fairly regular guests at this hotel. (As residents not just people that have the rather excellent Afternoon Tea). We like the place so much that I chose to spent my 50th birthday here with a number of friends and family that also stayed over night. As ever the service was attentive, the food great (Service was maybe slightly slower than normal in the evening), and the whole team went out of their way to make the big 5 0 memorable for me. We are booked once again on the Christmas break package for this year and we can't wait to one again enjoy the Midland experience. (Even the people who arranged my booking were fab!)

Just had our 7th short break at The Midland. Food and service as always very good. Staff friendly and efficient. Special mention to Lesley in Restaurant and Brian and Anthony on Reception. Only disappointment this time was a terribly loud, disrespectful, and uncouth wedding party on 16th May. Lot's of shouting and running up and down corridors, never had this before at the hotel, just hope it was a one off? Hope you will start to reinvest soon in some areas which are starting to look tired, exterior, the stair carpet, Rotunda Bar to mention. We love the hotel and it would be such a shame if it wasn't kept up? Rooms, Restaurant, service all great. We will be back.

Room Tip: We like 201 and 101 but wrong end of building when a function on. Usually would give very good sleep...

Dear Lynda B

Many thanks for a positive review of your 7th and most recent stay with us here at The Midland.
Please rest assured that, whilst we do to some extent rely on guests behaving in an appropriate manner,the events to which you refer were very much isolated in nature.
We are, of course, firmly committed to ensuring that this iconic building is maintained both inside and out and will shortly be undertaking a scheduled full exterior clean - a necessity bearing in in mind our location. We will also soon be replacing our main staircase carpet and other areas of flooring within the hotel which have proved to be less hardwearing that we would have liked and were installed as part of the hotel's refurbishment prior to our involvement.
I hope you will be pleased with the results of this continued investment when we (hopefully) have the pleasure of welcoming you back for an 8th visit!

Best regards
