... our students loved Conwy Castle. After commenting that Stirling Castle was fake, I think that they appreciated the obviously authentic look of Conwy. Ascending the towers of the castle provided one with brilliant views of the town and surrounding areas. The wall walk was in tact and allowed us to wander around the perimeter of the castle and to check out the various areas. In the chapel, there were stained glass windows still in place and we discovered that the King had ...

Our tour of Liverpool then moved into a more historical perspective. We went down to the harbour to see the old White Star Line building where the wives of the crewmen of the Titanic would stand outside to hear if their husbands were alive or not.

Historical Traveler Reviews Lancaster House Hotel Blackpool
Not all the best hotels have sea views!
This was our first visit to the Lancaster House Hotel which is about 10 mins from the beach. It has been refurbished to a very good standard with bright modern decor.On arrival the staff who were always warm and friendly offered us tea or coffee before being shown to our room (9) which was spotless.The buffet styled breakfast was served in Oliver's Bistro which is part of the hotel and was opened last year was superb but the 3 course evening meal was excellent 10 out of 10.If you cannot stay at the hotel you must dine at Oliver's Bistro. I have no trouble in recommending the Lancaster House Hotel.
A Hotel with excellent standards
We were pleasantly greeted upon arrival and offered tea or coffee before being shown to our rooms which were excellent. A family of 4 (kids 9 & 13) and two rooms next to each other and our every need was catered for. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The buffet breakfasts in Olivers Bistro were great and the meals in the evening were in a class of there own , a credit to "Chef" and his great staff whom were very friendly.
The hotel is very easy to find and has off street parking.
This place has to be highly reccommended.
Thank you Barrie (chef) and Maria for the excellent hospitality.

Number one hotel in blackpool
Just returned from a weekend break along with my family and my sister and her family. This is the second year running that we have stayed at The Lancaster House Hotel and again we were not disappointed. We were looked after extremely well once again, and were lucky enough to stay in one of the refurbished bedrooms. The buffet style breakfasts are just "the best". This year we dined at the newly opened bistro on our second night and sampled the 3 course early bird menu. The food was excellent and we will certainly be coming back again next year.
Thank you to Maria and Barrie for a wonderful weekend and not forgetting our compliments to "Chef".
A great stay in Blackpool
My daughter and I have just returned from a 3 night break in Blackpool staying at the Lancaster House Hotel.
We were made to feel most welcome by Barrie and Maria upon our arrival and for the duration of our stay.
Our room was very comfortable and clean, as is the rest of the hotel.
You won't go hungry at the Lancaster. Chef serves a great breakfast as well as a splendid evening meal in the Bistro.
A memorable stay with all credit to Barrie and Maria. Thank you.
Blackpool's Jewel in the Crown
We have just returned from a super weekend at the Lancaster House Hotel. Forget the Pleasure Beach, Tower and lights, sample something different in Blackpool and head to thie Lancaster.
From the warm welcome by Maria on arrival to the excellent cuisine served up by Barrie you cannot help but enjoy your stay in Blackpool.
The quality of food and standard of service is something to savour and leaves you wishing that you were staying longer.
We spent hours this year searching the net for somewhere to stay, next time it will be a quick phonecall to Maria.
once again our party of 12 have stayed at the lancaster house.
We have just returned from a weekend away at the Lancaster House Hotel which was excellent. The normal type of accommodation in Blackpool is a Guest House but we were looking for something better and different and this is certainly what we found. The staff were extremely courteous and we were given a friendly welcome. The hotel has recently been refurbished with tasteful decor and the attention to detail is first class - even down to the fixtures and fittings of the bathrooms. The food in Oliver's Bistro is superb with presentation receiving 10 out of 10. The hotel also has parking for residents which is important as Blackpool can be busy. All attractions are within easy walking distance. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel and advise you to enquire at the very competitive rates that they have.
The best dining experience in Blackpool !
This was the first time we had been to the Lancaster Hotel and it certainly won't be the last! It has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and Oliver's Bistro is by far the best quality dining in Blackpool. Barrie is a superb chef - cooking fresh British and French food, in full view of the Restaurant which I particularly liked. The food was perfect and the only problem I had was that I couldn't try all the dishes at once! The staff are warm and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail goes without saying and the decor is modern, bright and absolutely spotless. We shall certainly be back, especially as Olivers Bistro is open to the public and not just hotel residents. Well done.
Great New Look
The hotel has a great new look following major work to improve the public areas and introduce the new Bistro Restaurant. Stylish, modern and very impressive. The service, as always, is excellant and a credit to Maria and Barrie.
Fantastic Stay - Great People - Great Food
Had a fantastic stay at Lancaster House - Great Food - why eat out when you can eat in and enjoy the the fantastic new restuarant - plus great bar, with Barrie & Maria.
Hotel has undergone a major transformation since I last visited and is a real credit to the hard work Barrie & Maria must have been putting in.
Definitely look forward to seeing you again soon, and even if we can't get booked in on our next trip to Blackpool will call in and try the full range in 'Oliver's Bistro'
