"Superb family-run hotel, comfortable and relaxing"
Although there was an event on when we arrived, the car park is ample and had many spaces. Reception is a relaxed area where we were given excellent attention and provided with all the information we needed for a good stay. Our room was of a good size with a window onto the garden/function area and a sofa. The room had a fridge and the usual refreshment facilities. Fresh local milk was provided in a fridge in the corridor. The television had all main sky channels and was straightforward to use. We used the swimming pool on Sunday morning, which is a great facility as non-guest cannot use it. The only downside to using the pool was that the water was cold. Check-out was quick. We also visited their family garden centre a few miles up the road. Hotel guest can claim a free drink at the garden centre. It is definitely the best garden centre I have ever been to. I would definitely stay there again if I am in the area.
"Splendid place for a two night visit to Lancaster."
Drove to Lancaster from Scotland. Hotel easy to find, Easy to park, speedy check in. Excellent room, well designed bath room, comfortable all around. Good breakfast, very helpful staff. Easy check out.
Left early on 2nd morning to drive home to Dorset. Excellent breakfast was provided half an hour before the restaurant was due to open, organised by the two very competent and helpful staff at reception, I suspect they were the duty receptionist and duty manager.
Booked family room, 2 adults and a 4 year old. Nice little treats (drink & sweets) left on the bed for my daughter. This was a chair bed, the metal folding mechanism a little exposed (as with any chair bed0, but caused no problems for her during the night.
All nicely clean and tidy - only a half bath, but sufficient for a short stay.
Was very impressed with the waiting staff for the in-house Italian restaurant (which doubles up for breakfast), very well mannered and appeared sincere - among the best waiting staff I have ever encountered at any restaurant. Not constantly bugging you during your meal to make sure everything is fine, just made sure it was perfect when they gave you the food - which was also very nice.
Stayed at this hotel with friends the weekend before Christmas. The rooms were very comfortable with lovely views over the seafront. Ate at the restaurant twice and was very impressed by both the evening carvery and buffet breakfast - lots of choice and great quality. Added bonus here is the large car park, not often found at hotels on the front.
Really enjoyed our stay at the St Ives. The staff were very friendly and helpful and our room was great. We had wonderful views of the sea and pier.
We enjoyed our breakfast and stayed at the hotel for the evening meal which was good value.
Lytham St Annes is great for a quiet relaxing holiday and nothing like it's neighbour - Blackpool.
Two nights in Burnley in December isn't exactly gripping but this hotel made the experience very pleasant. Modern bedroom wing comfortable and clean with high standard fittings. Basis of hotel old mansion really well looked after and attractive. Staff first class - real northern welcome. Super breakfast, which is cooked for you, not a buffet with soggy sausages and flaccid bacon.
Overall first class and recommended if you are in the area. Don't be put off by Burnley the surrounding country is fabulous.
