Not bad. Rooms were adequate but the bed was too small for a couple. Asked if they had rooms with Kingsize beds to be told no. Haven't slept in a double bed for years. Price was steep for the quality. The lack of lift didn't help as we were on the top floor. Would agree with the other reviewer with... More

We were visiting family and this is the best place to stay in the locality. The setting on the River Wyre is quite special - lovely to sit out on the terrace of an evening, and so pretty popular with the locals. There's no lift - bit of a pain if you have a lot of luggage, as we did,... More

Stayed here whilst attending a wedding in the area, excellent location, rooms very clean, nice furnishings, tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer and liquid soap/hair body wash provided. Lovely view over the river, food excellent in the restaurant and also the full English breakfast. Would definitely recommend this hotel. The hotel was quiet apart from some inconsiderate guests who decided to have... More

While visiting friends nearby I had looked at many of the B&B's in and around Blackpool and decided to opt for this one. It was a really nice hotel, friendly staff, good food, lovely setting. The tiniest of negativity: the breakfast menu said 'fruit juice, cereals available'. I assumed this meant as an alternative to tea/coffee, full English. It was... More

Spent 1 night here. We were 4 couples celebrating a 60th birthday. It was so picturesque. The staff were fantastic especially Angela who was so bubbly and friendly. The meal was wonderful and the service on such a busy night was great. The views from bedroom 19 were superb and the rooms were so comfortable. I would totally recommend this... More

This is our second visit and we were again thrilled with our stay. We arrived with a warm welcome and shown to our room, which was spacious, beautifully decorated, clean, with views over the stunning river. The bed was really comfortable, the pillows the same.
