Thanks very much for a fantastic stay. Staff are welcoming and its a very good nights rest you get there. Food in the restaurant is of the highest quality and service is first class. Would recommend this for couples as well as business stays. Cheers again.

This Guest House is located on the bank of the river Wyre. Its rooms are well appointed with everything you would expect of a good hotel (hair dryer, Wifi, tea making etc), the are contemporary in design, and have one of the best cleaning standards I have ever experienced. Their beds are quite firm, although a room move could sort... More

We had just one night at the Shard for a quick weekend break with friends. It was a bitterly cold weekend but we were very cozy inside - lovely views of the river from the restaurant - our standard room was on the westerly side with glimpses of the river and quite noisy due to the strong winds - which...

We have returned to the Shard while visiting family near by. As on previous visits we received a warm welcome and everything was perfect. The room was beautiful, the breakfasts freshly cooked and well presented and the dinner menu was a great hit with all the family (three generations). My comment on departure was along the lines of 'what can... More

My husband and I have just stayed at the Shard Riverside Hotel for the fifth time. We just wanted a weekend away where we could chill out and recharge our batteries so to speak. It was a late booking for us and in the past we have had a signature room but the hotel was almost fully booked and we... More

We really enjoyed a family birthday celebration, meals and overnight stay. We were extremely well looked after, staff were welcoming, obliging and very pleasant. There was a good variety on the menu and food was well cooked and personal preferences were accommodated. Rooms were comfortable and very clean and the riverside location provided spectacular scenery even in winter. Looking forward... More

Went here for a quick lunch, because over forty years ago, my wife was a waitress here! The pub is situated off the abandoned road that originally led to the tollgate bridge. The river was in full flood, so we got a table that provided a good view of the receding tide. Ordered fish and chips. Reasonably prompt service for... More

The delights of our riverside location never fail to satisfy. With the tides or fascinating birdlife to view while experiencing our food and drink, the only variation is the temperature from the sun and being able to sit on our terrace!! Glad you returned to experience the changes here. More

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at The Shard between Christmas and New Year. The picturesque location is the main attraction, right on the banks of the River Wyre, giving great photo opportunities at sunrise and sunset as well as the chance to observe all the wildlife the river supports. Our rooms were on the front of the hotel with... More

I stayed here for one night with some colleagues when going out for a christmas dinner. Bathroom was basic, with a basic shower but was fine for a night. The room was comfortable with a window that could open and looked out onto the estuary. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking very convenient outside.
