Handy Hotel off the motorway

Posted 17-Jul-2017
Some nice renovation from last visit. Room was miles away from reception and possibly not a renovated. The bin hadn't been emptied. Staff were lovely especially reception. Breakfast was very good.

Hotel reception and restaurant area were spotless , shame this standard wasn't applied to our room. The carpet had not been hoovered and the room was thick with dust. The restaurant prices are extortionate ... £32.50 for a steak, £10.50 for a ceaser salad and if you decide to have a bowl of porridge in the morning it will cost you £5 !!! I would expect these prices from an upmarket hotel that had a pool and spa but this is a basic hotel their chef must have been twiddling his thumbs all night as the guests left in taxis to go elsewhere.

Overnight stay visiting relatives

Posted 03-May-2017
Pros: Comfort and location
Cons: Not allowing dogs to stay. Cooked breakfast was dried out. Two dogs in room above barked and howled and scratched at the door of their room.
Stayed here before and felt standard of food had dropped a little. Staff always very good, though sometimes not at reception desk.

Conveniently located meet up hotel

Posted 23-Apr-2017
Bathroom had previous occupants used shampoo container left in shower soap holder. It put me off as I'm particular about that kind of hygiene and it was in my mind then about what else hadn't been sanitised properly. It had sown a seed of doubt. Main menu Food is acceptable but menu is very very limited and not good enough for its type. Nicely done seating /setting.

Functional hotel

Posted 15-Apr-2017
Pros: Good pillows and convenient for motorway - M6.
Cons: Comfort of bed, air conditioning, breakfasts.
We booked an executive room with breakfast. Good size room and clean with a good shower. The bed was on the firm side of comfortable. We had to share a face cloth as only one provided. The description said there was air conditioning but it was actually and electric wall heater and a window. Breakfast was only a continental one ,cooked breakfasts are extra. The coffee machines were faulty and continental breakfast does not include rolls or any cheeses and there were too few staff. All in all a 3* rather than executive experience and quite expensive for what we got.

Well sited at motorway exit outside Preston

Posted 13-Apr-2017
First impressions count a lot and I was very impressed by the friendly, helpful and kind treatment I received from the receptionist on duty. Not only was I offered a choice of floor and views but the young lady called the floor I chose to ask which of the available rooms was the nicest. What an asset to the hotel she is.

Comfortable stay in a well set hotel

Posted 11-Apr-2017
I stayed overnight and found the hotel to be very comfortable, staff friendly and welcoming. I are in the restaurant and the food was very good with a lovely picturesque view of the river - the hotel is really well set to say it is, in effect, a service station type accommodation. Staff were young at the reataueant but still very good. It seemed very quiet and I felt there weren't many people staying hence the great deal at £55 per night includ If breakfast! Room was very nice, comfortable and extremely good value for money. Would of happily paid 100 pounds for the quality of the stay.

Conveniently located

Posted 26-Mar-2017
Recently returned from a 2 night stay at this very conveniently located hotel. Very easy check in with friendly staff. Breakfast was lovely on both mornings and you can have a full hot breakfast along with a self service continental.
