Chilled weekend away. Nice modern hotel not far from Preston and Blackburn. We stayed using a TravelZoo deal which included 2 nights bed & breakfast and one evening meal in the restaurant. There is ample parking and nice garden out the back. Rooms were clean and modern with the usual things you would expect. Overall a nice chilled stay.

Stayed here for 1 night on business, hotel is clean tidy and staff are efficient and friendly. Ate in the hotel and food was nice with good service . Rooms are old styled but decent enough, bed was very hard though. Had no issues in general except not the easiest place to find.

Stayed over for one night whilst visiting people in the area. Staff really friendly, food delicious and good value for money. Ate in the restaurant and had the beef stroganoff which was lovely and the portion size was good. Would definitely stay here again when visiting the area.
