Renovations being made to The Royal Kings Arms will aim to bring the hotel, originally built in the 17th century, into a luxury boutique hotel fit for 2018.
Refurbishment already includes a new first-floor resident’s bar, repainting of the front elevation, a new reception, glazed openings and sliding doors to the entrance lobby and a private dining room with an outside decking area.
However, the first completed step in the process of The Royal Kings Arms refurbishment journey is The Brasserie.
Located on the ground floor, The Brasserie is set in a space unique to the Lancaster area and is open daily from 7am-10pm welcoming guests to enjoy anything from an afternoon tea to an all day brunch accompanied by bottomless Prosecco.
The Brasserie now also includes ‘The Snug’, a private dining room which opens up to an outside decking area.
Originally built in 1625 during the reign of Charles I and counting Charles Dickens as one of the hotel’s many famous former guests, aspects of local designer Kyra McDaid’s work presents a fusion between past and present.
Future refurbishment will renovate to the hotel’s grand ballroom, update the hotel’s current library facilities with a brand new corporate conference suite and add ‘The Crypt’ basement cocktail and champagne bar to Lancaster’s nightlife.
