Lovely hotel beside the river Ribble which we used as a stopover on the route of the M6. Also a good location with easy access for visiting the local area. Executive room very comfortable.Restaurant and food were excellent for dinner with a comfortable bar seating area. Only thing for us which let the hotel down was the poor quality cooked breakfast and slow table clearing which was not in keeping with the otherwise excellent standard and service offered by staff in the hotel generally. Despite this I would have no hesitation in staying at this excellent Macdonald Resort hotel in the future.

Staff nice but not well maintained
The room was small, shabby and dusty ( it had been cleaned well, but it felt as if the Hoover bags hadn’t been changed as there was dust in the air that landed on things. The bathroom was cleaned, but in poor condition - the back of the door was damaged in several places and there were no hooks. The side of the bath was held in with toilet paper clumps sticking out. My cooked vegetarian breakfast was small, not of good quality and had the smallest egg I’d ever seen - disappointing.

OK but there are better options .
Satisfactory hotel - needs updating and some thorough cleaning - room we were in was noisy from traffic and a noisy fire door outside in the corridor- the section of corridor immediately outside smelt strongly of stale cigarettes.

A good hotel to stop over at.
The hotel is very handy if travelling up the M6, and only 15 minutes from the centre of Preston - beware the speed cameras! We got a good bed and breakfast rate, the room was fine, the bed comfortable and the water hot! It was a little warm, we opened the window but the M6 is quite loud and constant. We slept though. We’ve stayed here before and will do so again.
