Hard to believe, but Christmas dinner with no turkey. Apparently, you had to book turkey when making the reservation. I suggested maybe we should have been told that at the time of booking, and as the date of the reservation was the week before Christmas, couldn't they have assumed the reason for the visit? Shame because we had our office...

My husband and I arrived at this very nice small boutique hotel and were offered complimentary tea and cake on arrival. Our room on first floor was small but had everything for our overnight needs, brass bed with good quality linen, bathroom with good shower and bath, fluffy white towels and robes. There is a bar and small seating area...

We have been visiting Plato's once/twice a year for the past 5 years and each stay is always as good as the last. We stayed in lovely room 2 again, but we have stayed in most of the rooms; all of which are immaculate with super comfy beds. The restaurant serves fabulous food and the breakfasts are plentiful and good...

My wife and I love Kirkby Lonsdale and Plato's in particular. We have stayed here on several occasions and are impressed by the constantly high standards of welcome, friendly atmosphere, food and service. The ensuite bedrooms are cosy with everything you could want. If you want to get away to somewhere you can relax and enjoy being well looked after,...

I booked this hotel completely randomly for my boyfriend's birthday as it had a good deal and was in a nice location (I've been to Kirkby Lonsdale a few times but never stayed over). I am so glad I booked here! From the moment we arrived, the staff were unbelievably helpful, giving us a parking permit and explaining exactly where...

From the first time you walk in the building you are made to feel at home. Staff very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the first floor . It was spotlessly clean, comfy bed and a reasonable size. Lovely shower room with underfloor heating. The restaurant area is split into two parts. The front is a café and bar...

We are frequent visitors to the area but this was our first stay at Platos and we were not disappointed - friendly welcome comfortable room and cosy lounge and despite being woken early by the bin lorry outside our window the fabulous breakfast more than made up for it

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Plato’s is set in the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale - once discovered never forgotten. On the edge of the Lake District, the Dales and The Forest of Bowland. A pretty little market town set in the Lune Valley with wonderful walking, stunning views and really good shopping.As a boutique hotel, we understand that one of the joys of going away is to have a touch more luxury than you do at home. So that is why in our higgledy piggledy old building, we have made sure that every room is unique. The only thing that is standard is comfort - the ultra luxury Vi-Spring beds, the crisp cotton linen, the stacks of fluffy white towels, the state of the art flatscreen TVs, the luxurious en suite bathrooms some with baths and others with rainfall showers, the complimentary bottle of Plato's wine and gorgeous local Sedbergh Soap Company toiletries.Downstairs we have a Bar and Restaurant - Proper home cooking with a twist made from fresh ingredients sourced on our doorstep, a wine list selected by grape so that you can try new variations of your favourite wine, and honest beers and ales for the drinker who knows the difference.All prices are per room per night and include our sumptuous breakfast which is served until 2.30pm so you really can have a lazy lie in (please note that the room cleaning service finishes at 10am and check out on day of departure is 11am). ... more   less
