Hotels in Lancashire

Polly Checkland Harding

Ranging from luxury grandeur to compact cosiness, our guide to hotels in Lancashire prioritises the best accommodation in the county. If you’re after a stately setting from which to explore Burnley, head to the Grade II* listed Hurstwood Hall, for a charmingly compact residence with views of Lancaster‘s Castle, make for Castle View – or to stay in an absolutely iconic hotel that typifies the seaside resort of Morecambe, book a night at The Midland. The town of Blackpool, with its famous Tower, Ballroom and Promenade, is not to be outdone: here, you’ll find a B&B that’s been entirely renovated by 30 contemporary artists.  This, then, is a county not short on variety in terms of places to stay – to discover more, read on.
