Very good 8.0 From 398 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Traveling from Portsmouth to Lock Lomond thought we would take a break so as not to arrive at holiday destination too late. Glad we did as it took us 8 hours just to Preston but couldn’t have picked better accommodation. Quick check in, friendly staff, good nights sleep followed by a hearty breakfast
VALENTINE, gb1 night trip
Good 6.0
The hotel located with lovely river next of it. However we had problems with insects coming to our room in evening which we did not realise opened small size of window for fresh air. Stayed 3 nights, first 2 days breakfast was lovely. However Saturday moning's our breakfast was half of amont in the plate. vegetarian sausage was half, mashroom was half size too and others were short amount Which very disapointed. Hotel needs an update which we stayed this hotel about 15 years ago that same as last time.

Convenient and pleasant location
Very nice room overlooking the river ribble, very convenient location just off the m6- ideal for breaking a long journey Slightly tired decor in the room but clean and comfortable

3 lads away on business for 1 night
The hotel was lovely and staff very nice. Rooms and location were all great, the only reason we have put comfort down as OK was there is no air conditioning in any of the rooms. We had 3 rooms and all at a set room temp that our installers not able to adjust. This caused a little issue as they all had to open the doors do cool the rooms down and as it is summer the midgies came into the room which made for an unfortable nights sleep.

Value for one night stop
The welcome at reception was delayed due to a mix up with another couples booking. Then the PC would not print out our room card. The receptionist was very apologetic, but quite flustered. Clean room, however a little noisy due to an event, however comfortable beds. We ate at the restaurant and the food was very good, with pleasent staff. Disappointing the terrace doors were not opened from the restaurant afire door was used which banged closed or was left open with someone getting up to close it, distracting when eating. Overall ok value for money.
