Beautiful boutique hotel
Excellent stay, beautiful room and fantastic bathroom. We slept wonderfully as it was quiet after around 10 pm. The best bit was breakfast, cooked to order. I’d gladly stay again.

Real Ale
Overall we enjoyed our stay, but I as a CAMRA member found the cost of Pride of Pendle on the expensive side as was the Lakeland Ale, CAMRA have been campaigning to keep the cost of real Ale at a reasonable price and considering that in my area in The Pendal Witch, Pride is £2-65, Holts in the Atherton Arms is £2-22 and Bank Top Flat Cap in the Jolly Nailor is £2-30, £3-50 is London Prices such as one would find in the Doric Arms at Euston Station not in rural Lancashire!
