Location cannot be beaten. Refurbishment underway!
I have stayed at the King's Arms for many years in a row, as this is the venue for an annual reunion event which I attend every year. The primary reason for staying at the hotel is its location. It cannot be beaten if on a trip to Lancaster. Town centre location. 2 min walk to the train station. No taxis required to get from A to B. Only hotel in Lancaster with on-site city centre parking. However, for the last 25 years the hotel and décor has not been updated.... until now. New owners came in last August and are pumping a considerable amount of money into revamping the whole place. Although not yet complete, there will be a new brasserie, cocktail bar, restaurant, etc etc. However, they are still in the middle of this refurbishment at the moment and there is still work going on and it will be hit or miss whether you are allocated a newly refurbished room or one of the older rooms (I stayed in one of the 'older' rooms which as I am used to staying at the hotel. I didn't mind but would have preferred one of the refurbed rooms)! Hotel staff all very polite and professional. Had a good chat with the new manager and again very professional and keen to gain our feedback and inform us of the refurbishment programme. Don’t expect luxurious surroundings at the moment…but it should be fantastic when complete.

The hotel was under refurbishment which made it a little bit noises. Despite this the service and hospitality was great. We enjoyed our stay

Sad Place
Reported the shower head twice, still had not been changed by the time we left. Window were filthy both inside and out, stain on bedding. I know this is being updated but this is the 3rd time we have stayed and it is still the same.
