The Royal Hotel is a lovingly restored Georgian town-house hotel providing luxury accommodation and exceptional hospitality amidst the unspoilt English countryside of the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland.
Not only are we ideally placed for you to explore the fabulous countryside on our doorstep we are the perfect place to explore the equally fabulous food and drink that these great counties have to offer.
The Lune Valley has over the years provided poetic inspiration for the likes of Thomas Gray, John Ruskin and William Worsdworth and locations such as Crook O’ Lune, a shepherd’s crook-shaped bend in the river, moved the landscape artist J M W Turner to produce numerous rustic masterpieces. Much of this stunning countryside is best appreciated on foot and walkers of all abilities are well served with a choice of walks from our doorstep.
We have fourteen individually designed and decorated bedrooms. Being an old building and arranged over three floors the rooms are far from standard shapes and sizes. In fact, no two bedrooms are exactly alike.
Dining is as formal or informal as you choose. The bar is right in the middle of the building, exactly where it should be. It is also exceptionally well stocked with real ales, thoughtfully selected wines and a career’s worth of whiskies, brandies and other more exotic spirits and liqueurs.
Teas and coffees are served all day, there are newspapers and magazines for your perusal and the great big windows overlooking the square make it the perfect spot for a bit of people watching.
