Small but very clean and comfortable room with all amenities! Staff were friendly and very accommodating! Breakfast was excellent! A fine example of boutique style accommodation. Location was handy for shops and other pubs.

We had a lovely overnight stay here with our two miniature schnauzers. We had taken everything but the kitchen sink for our beardie boys (as all dog lovers do) however on arrival in the beautifully decorated & comfortable room we found a dog bed, blanket, poop bags, bowl & a jar of dog treats! We humans also wanted for nothing,...

This hotel is a great location to loads of attraction. We visited mainly for walking and had a great time. The hotel welcomed our dog and they even thought of him and provided a few treats & a bed.

We stayed last night and were impressed yet again with the friendly and professional staff. David was excellent, very pleasant and particularly helpful. The room (number 3) was lovely overlooking the Main Street. We will be back!

We decided on a night away in Kirby Lonsdale, as it is one of those places not too far away from home that you always pass by and never actually visit and how glad we are that we chose Kirby Lonsdale and Plato's. The reason we booked it initially was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and my Wife's birthday....

I hesitate to say 'boutique' accomodation as this is rather a cliche these days. Perhaps the little sign on the bar stating 'Posh B&B' sums it up? Well no it doesn't as Platos is a - Classy modern bar/bistro during the day and night, serving quality ales and wine - Quality restaurant offering a great innovative, gastronomic experience - place...

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
