  • The AA-Rosette-awarded Sun Terrace Resturant boasts magnificent sea views through floor-to-ceiling windows and offers modern Lancashire cuisine
  • Former guests include music legends Shirley Bassey and the Rolling Stones, and the actor George Formby
  • The city of Lancaster with its medieval castle and Georgian architecture is 20 minutes away by car, while the South lakes are a 40-minute drive away

This landmark hotel with views over Morecambe Bay was first opened in the 1930s, and after careful restoration it now welcomes guests looking for a stylish seaside stay -- the illustrious list of former residents includes Shirley Bassey, the Rolling Stones and George Formby. Designed by British architect Oliver Hill, it is built in the Streamlined Moderne style of Art Deco, with a curved white facade and stylish central tower and rotunda, and carvings by Eric Gill.

The beach is on the doorstep, and you can take an easy stroll to the town centre's shops and bars along the promenade. The Platform live entertainment venue is just behind the hotel, while Happy Mount Park with its scenic pathways, Japanese garden, mini golf and bowling green is five minutes' drive away.

Nearby Lancaster offers a pleasant day out and can be reached in around 20 minutes by car or train. Its medieval castle is described by English Heritage as the "Northwest's most important historic and archaeological monument". The city is known for its attractive Georgian architecture. The Butterfly House and the Ashton Memorial in the 54-acre Williamson Park are worth a visit. The South Lakes, including the pretty village of Lakeside and bustling Bowness-on-Windermere, is around 40 minutes' drive away.

The Sun Terrace is an AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant boasting views over the bay through its floor-to-ceiling windows. You can enjoy a variety of cocktails and drinks in the Ravilious Rotunda Bar. Guests can use The Sandpiper Club health and spa facilities at Lancaster House, the hotel's sister property, which is 25 minutes' drive by car near Lancaster.

Rooms have a double or twin beds, luxury toiletries and a selection of refreshments, plus a TV and free Wi-Fi.

Hotel is amazing. And would enjoy staying there again but unlikely to as not much to do in Morecambe. It might be a good location for southern Lake District. Maybe in future when the proposed bio domes are erected it would have more in the area to attract us back.

We enjoyed the Sunday lunch and breakfast but the lounge area had no wow factor at all. We didn’t like the plastic chairs in such a lovely dining room either. We couldn’t get any hot water later in the evening. I rand reception and she said she would check the boiler. The water was ok in the morning but temperamental.

We got a good price booking through Travelzoo and we got a lovely room. The offer was with a bottle of Prosecco in room on arrival. This did not happen and we had to ask reception for it.
