Welcome to the Berkeley Guesthouse in Morecambe, Lancashire.
This statement does not contain personal opinions as to our suitability for those with access needs, but aims to accurately describe the facilities and services that we offer all our guests/visitors.
We are situated at 39 Marine Road West which is at the south end of Morecambes promenade although the area is called the West End.
Parking is available on both sides of the main road outside and there are no immediate restrictions. Further parking is available approx 500 yards away in a public pay and display car park.
Bus stops for both directions of travel are within 200 yards with very regular connections to Lancaster and surrounding towns and villages.
Morecambe’s train station is a 10 minute walk away with hourly trains travelling to Lancaster where connections can be made to any part of the country. Taxis can be pre booked for train arrivals by calling 01524 424424 and quoting the Berkeley Guesthouse. We offer secure storage for bicycles. Assistance with luggage always available.
PLEASE NOTE. DUE TO ADVERSE REVIEWS ON CERTAIN WEB SITES, WE MUST STATE:- We are a 3 star terraced seaside guesthouse NOT a 5 star hotel. We do not advertise that we have extra large bedrooms with en-suite baths.
Our rooms are comfortable, clean and modern with all the facilities you require for a stay away from home including a shower. If you require a room big enough to hold a party in, please contact us and we will direct you to an establishment that has, but will cost you 5 times as much.
Totally unnecessary negative reviews can harm small businesses like ours when we go out of our way to make you feel at home.
Reviewers must remember not to compare us to 5 star hotels etc. I apologise for having to include this on our web site but we have to convey our message to future guests.
