A last minute trip here proved a good choice. This hotel is conveniently placed on the A59, between Preston and Ormskirk. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful and the bedroom I had was comfortable and spotlessly clean with a well appointed bathroom that included a bath as well as shower. There is a bar area and a bright and...

Other mains I saw were, salmon, beef and lamb, all thoroughly...

I am obviously saddened that you feel that your meal did not hold up against our usually very high standards on this occassion. Everything we serve in our restaurant is made in-house, down to the bread rolls that are served at the start of your meal. Unfortunately, no-one was made aware of your food issues otherwise we would have happily...

Really good food and excellent service. This was a Christmas meal for a group of ladies and everything was just perfect. Have been here on previous occasions and the standard of food and friendly efficient staff is constantly worth the visit.

Deliberately planned my route so I ended up staying here as been previously. i was not disappointed. My room was clean and comfortable and on the ground floor which was rather nice not having to carry luggage upstairs. Despite being on ground floor it was also very quiet. Plenty of room to catch up on work and free wifi. Both...

Clean, tidy, pleasant staff, good parking, good food, nice bar area, tea/coffee in the rooms, good bathroom and shower, perfect for a quick overnight before a family wedding in the area. Easy to find on the main road but it wasn't so busy that it hindered our sleep.

Visited with 4 others for a family birthday meal. Very attentive and friendly staff who create a really warm and friendly atmosphere. Sumptuous choices on the menu all cooked and presented wonderfully. I'd say that this place gives a refined yet relaxed dining experience which we all really enjoyed
