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!

Great Location
This is a really nice pub with rooms. The food in the restaurant was really good and the staff all very friendly especially the chap at breakfast. The room was well planned with the bed in the middle of the room to take advantage of the river views although this did cut down on the floor area. Very nice bathroom too.

Good6.0
OK but could be better.
Looks nice overall and the bar and waiting staff were all young, friendly and personable. Food was good and room was stylishly modern. However, we paid £130/night for a superior room and expected more - lots of small points were wrong: 1. Bed too soft and wobbley. 2. Room was hot and there was no A/C (expected at £130/night). No fan either. 3. Lots of flies - it's a rural area so that's not surprising but fly screens should be used so windows can be left open. 4. Breakfast - fruit and pastries were left uncovered so flies were a problem. 5. Restaurant orders stopped sharp at 8.30pm and the bar closed to the public at 10pm so there was no atmostphere after then. 6. No towel rings in bathroom. 7. Bill was wrong as they added on someone else's meals. It took two attempts to correct!
