A really friendly and relaxed place to stay. Our room had sweeping sunset views across the Wyre. Lovely rooms - clean, up-to-date décor and very comfortable. Excellent food and drink in the bar and the restaurant. Even though the restaurant was busy we were not rushed at all and made to feel very welcome. Wide choice on offer for breakfast.... More

Thanks again for a 'stunning' review that reflects on the qualities that ensure that our guests relax, enjoy and subsequently return to our hotel. Our location allows for great views and with the summer months fast approaching I am sure the sunrises and sunsets will add to our guests experience. See you next time and thanks again. More

We stayed overnight whilst visiting the area for a family occasion. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The only downside was the lack of a lift. As I have a problem with my hip, I found the stairs somewhat a problem. However, the room was lovely with views over the river. It was worth the effort climbing upastairs.

Thank you for your kind review. We have a great location here with stunning views and, of course, great standards that I hope eased the downside of us having no lift to upper floors. We have an entrance available to our guests for the first floor which eases access and should you visit us again we will ensure that your... More

In a beautiful setting on the river bank, beautifully clean and tidy, friendly chatty staff, nice room if a little plain. Food was good, dinner and breakfast were well presented in a very nice dining room. Will use this again when visiting Fleetwood.

We stayed in room number 6 and it was lovely, especially the views over the river which were stunning.

This was our second visit to the Shard Riverside. We arrived on a Friday night after battling with the M6, and were immediately welcomed and made to feel relaxed and comfortable.
