Welcoming and Charming
We had an absolutely delightful experience at the Old Post Office. Pauline and Keith were the most generous hosts. The room was beautiful, the food delicious, the conversation lovely, and all of the thoughtful touches made our stay very special. The town of Lanchester is warm and down to earth as well. A wonderful stay.

A joyous stay
Superb small hotel run by a couple who really know how to make the stay very good. Nice clean en suite room, with lots of touches like a small torch to see you to the WC in the night. Shuttered windows make the room dark and cuts down on the noise, Breakfast is very good with all the produce bought locally. If you need to stay in the area look no further.
