Glassworks Apartments, Lancaster
Situated in the heart of historic Lancaster, The Glassworks Apartments offer high standards of style and comfort. These fine Georgian buildings, once the home of renowned stained glass company Abbott & Co, were originally built in the mid-18th Century as opulent town houses for Lancaster's wealthy merchant class. Sensitively restored and redeveloped in 2014 to an exceptional standard of quality and style, they once more offer luxurious living accommodation for those with discerning tastes.

Designed around the concept of an aparthotel, each of the serviced apartments are self-contained and offer fine self-catering accommodation with views to the landmark Georgian St John’s Chapel.

Living space is open plan and integrates with the breakfast bar for informal dining and the fully fitted kitchen. The furniture is a tasteful blend of modern and retro, carefully selected by our interior designer, including an Italian full aniline leather sofa bed, which provides for extra sleeping space if needed. Feather and down cushions with hand sewn covers add an extra touch of style and comfort.

Television and radio, Internet access for BBC i-Player, ITV Player, 4OD and your own Youtube, Netflix or LoveFilm accounts and USB connections are all standard features of the Smart TVs. Both Wi-Fi and hard-wired access for the internet are included.

The fully fitted kitchen has plenty of cupboard space, fridge with freezer compartment, fan assisted oven, ceramic hob and an extractor fan. A microwave, kettle and toaster are provided, of course, together with a good assortment of crockery, cutlery, pans and utensils.

The double bedroom is furnished with the best Sealy Posturepedic bed and luxurious mattress, feather and down pillows and duvet (13.5 tog to keep you snug), built in ‘long and short’ hanging space and cupboard shelves. Fine white cotton sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers are provided and changed weekly.
Additional hollofibre pillows and 10.5 tog duvets are stored in the bed bases for the sofa bed or as an alternative to feather and down for anyone with a preference for synthetics.

In the bathroom you will find a generous shower, WC, designer hand basin and more storage space in the under-basin cabinets. Fluffy white bath and hand towels are provided, also changed weekly when the housekeeper comes to clean.

Aim to be ‘green’ without compromising on comfort. Lighting is LED; heating is thermostatically and time controlled with temperatures set for each area individually. A high level of insulation, state of the art secondary glazing and first class acoustic reduction help to make sure your stay can be quiet and calm as well as comfortable and relaxing.
