We were booked in by my niece for her wedding nearby and stayed for four nights. It was very good in virtually every respect, rooms,food and the location,but a special mention must be made of the staff. They are a credit to the hotel and whoever was responsible for training them. Ever single one that we came into contact with... More

This is a very quiet location. We dined in the sunshine by the river. The small old village of Poulton is nearby, but you need a bike or a car to get there. The staff are friendly. The hotel overlooks the River Wyre and there are mud flats and grassy banks.

Thanks you for your review, a quiet peaceful meal in the sunshine by the river sounds just perfect :-) Poulton is a firm favourite for our guests for a spot of shopping and a walk around but yes you are right, it is 5 minutes in a car, 12 minutes on a bike but a good 40 minute walk, however...

The room we stayed in was very nicely decorated and very modern. Great powerful hot shower. Hotel is finished to the best standard possible, however it lacked little extras, and a relaxed atmosphere as we has experienced elsewhere the night before. Typhoo tea in the room not to our taste, duvet far too heavy, room was hot even with the... More

Thank you for your mixed review, I'm glad you found the overall stay a pleasant one although I am sadden to hear there were several issues with your stay. I just firstly want to point out the room you stayed in was indeed over looking the car park, these rooms are reduced to £65 on the internet (as you are... More

A very pleasant hotel, nice quite location by the river. Makes an excellent base to explore the sights around that part of the North west. The food is excellent and the rooms are a high standard. For those quiet nights in, a fairly good selection of wines to help you unwind. Well worth a visit

A good selection of wine to unwind to - sounds like my Saturday nights :-) Glad to hear you enjoyed our quiet peaceful location whilst being close enough to explore what the North West has to offer. More

The Shard Riverside sits beside the river Wyre, mid point between Fleetwood and Knott End On Sea. Very easy to find being just over the bridge from the Fleetwood side of the river. My wife and I were up from Hinckley (Leics) visiting relations in the area and stayed here for 2 nights. We were met by very friendly receptionist... More

Location- this is excellent. There are superb views over the River. It is worth paying for a River View room. Staff- they were very professional and friendly and the service was very good. Room- this was simply but well furnished. Everything worked and the housekeeping was excellent. Restaurant- this overlooked the river so the views were good. The food was... More

Thank you for your review. 'First class' is the only way breakfast should be and it sounds like it set you up for the rest of the day. Hopefully on your next visit you are able to dine in the restaurant (I can personally recommend the fish and chips) More
