Excellent value, great location
The Royal Hotel is centrally situated in the pretty town of Kirkby Lonsdale, right opposite the market square. Completely refurbished in boutique style, the bedrooms are extremely comfortable and well appointed with pleasant, ultra modern bathrooms. The restaurant and other public rooms reflect a similar decor and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Service at breakfast could not have been better and there was an ample choice of dishes. The Eggs Benedictine was especially good. Home made pizzas are served during the afternoon and evening, making dining here popular with families. Parking opposite, on the town square, is chargeable, but the Devil's Bridge car park, a few minutes walk away, is free at all times and I have not heard of any problems there.
