    The hotel was very clean and the rooms were large, it was good value for money. When we arrived our tv was not working properly but within 5 minutes of reporting this to reception they sent someone to the room to repair it. The staff we encountered were very polite and helpful and it was ideal for our 1 year old, travel cot was provided when requested and this also was clean

    The hotel is easy to find right on the m6 junction 31. I was upgraded to an exec room, as they could not find my reservation and had no more doubles left. The room was excellent and very comfortable. Parking space is excellent and free and is secured by a barrier. There are not that many hotels to choose from in Preston and I believe this hotel to be the best value for bed and breakfast in the area. Breakfast is a good feast!

    Got to sort out the background wedding style music! Menu is a bit limited (fish/scampi, burger and steaks) and if was I had been staying for leisure I think I would have flet it to be quite pricey, steaks and meats £16+ for a main. That said it is well cooked and very nice.

    Only stayed for one night, breaking a journey from Scotland to London and chose the Hotel since my husband and I had both previously stayed there on business and our memories were good. The Hotel welcome was warm as a young Scotsman was present with the Receptionist and he was most pleasant. Our room was lovely with a very nice bathroom - with separate shower - and was well furnished and comfortable. We had dinner, my husband;s meal was good but mine was very poor. I had dover sole which the chef kindly took off the bone for me, but it was served without a sauce or dressing with dry potatoes and a huge portion of dry vegetables. I felt the composition of the meal was boring and poor. This was disappointing but did not totally spoil our visit. Breakfast was fine next morning. We will definitely return at some future date.

    Great location Great staff re-furbishment tastefully undertaken and adds to the ambiance of the hoptel

    Not a critisism but when ordering main courses everything would appear ...to be with chips. menu is not clear in the fact that vegtables are available as they are listed as side dishes

    Superb

    Excellent rooms and comfortable bed. Evening dinner was of good standard and good service.

    Breakfast. Very slow service, inexperienced staff and restaurant manger was useless. Having waited over 40 minutes for my breakfast decided to forget it and leave. Sad end to what was a good experience up to that point.

    Very good

    The locations was good for our plans.

    The staff assumed that we ate breakfast in the hotel and charged us for it. The cost of the meal of, in my opinion, quite a lot. Had the staff not mentioned about the breakfast, we would have been charged for services we had not received. I think the staff should be much more careful about charging guests unless they know for a fact the guest received the service.

    The location of my room was perfect - river view!

    There was building works taking place - disruption is understandable. Staff were excellent

    This hotel is ideally located just off the motorway so very handy for an overnight stay en route anywhere. We had a room to the rear of the hotel which overlooked the river and was extremely peaceful. The room was very well fitted out and had everything we needed for our stay. Breakfast was included in our room rate and this meal was excellent. We would definitely consider staying here again, The hotel was only a five minute car journey from Preston itself where we were able to find plenty of shopping and inexpensive places to eat and drink.

    The hotel was under refurbishment during our stay, which we were not advised of prior to our visit. As a result the bar of the hotel had been moved to another location and although we were told on reception that it was fully kitted out, my husband was unable to get any draught beers and the only bottled beers they had were very strange. The lady on the bar was obviously new as she didnt seem to have a clue ! Other than this, the stay was most enjoyable and the notices did state that the refurbishment was due to be completed Sept/oct so hopefully this should be sorted.
