Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Whalley Abbey. I stayed overnight prior to a retreat day from work. From the moment I arrived the staff were so helpful, friendly and considerate to my needs.

If you are not part of a wedding party staying at the hotel i would not recommend this spot. We stayed on an evening where there was a wedding the following day and happened to be the only non wedding guests in the hotel. We were put in the room opposite the brides maids so at 6.30 am there was...

My wedding reception took place here on the 16th November 2014, and I can't recommend Whalley Abbey highly enough. From the planning stages through to bidding farewell to the last guest, the staff were exemplary. Thanks to their professionalism, there were no bridezilla moments! Warm, welcoming and the most beautiful backdrop to our special day, I'm so pleased we chose...

Our daughter's wedding took place at Whalley Abbey on 4 October 2014, and we cannot praise everyone there enough for their huge contribution to the enjoyment of the celebration. The friendly professionalism of the team and manager shone through, both in the run up to the day, and on the day itself - Roger, as M.C., was a star and...

Stayed here many times for Christian youth events, it never disappoints! The rooms are lovely and comfortable. Most recently stayed in the Williams room which had the added benefit of a beautiful view of the grounds! The staff are amazing and willing to help with anything a all. The food is always so delicious, and there's always loads of it....

We attended a wedding at the Abbey in July. Stunning location steeped in history. Both the Abbey and the local church are charming. The staff at the abbey could not do enough, we stayed overnight with our 8month old baby and the staff ensured out stay was comfortable and hassle free. The rooms are basic but comfortable and spacious. Highly...
