We stayed at this hotel whilst visiting relatives in the area. We received a warm welcome at the reception and were told that we had one of the best rooms. In order to get to the room we had to go up two flights of narrow stairs. No problem for us as we only had an overnight case each but... More

My family and I stayed at the hotel to go to Blackpool Illuminations with my three year old daughter. We wanted a hotel that was close to Blackpool but far enough away from the crowds and hullabaloo. The location of the Shard Riverside was ideal as it was about 5-10 mins from the seafront but set in a really quiet... More

I stayed at the Shard earlier this month for two nights while attending a training course. I couldn't have been more impressed. Alan, the manager had the courtesy to introduce me to two other guys on the same course as myself that I didn't know. Very helpful indeed. The hotel itself is spotlessly clean, and with it's setting just oozes... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights whilst on a business trip. Overall I was very impressed by the hotel, particularly because of its location on the bank of the River Wyre, but also due to the modern facilities/decor. The restaurant offered a good range of food and drinks, which was an added bonus. Only two negatives, the single... More

We had a weekend stay at the Shard Riverside and were impressed with the hotel, staff, room and location. Since we were visiting friends we did not have dinner there but the menu looked lovely - and reasonably priced. We did enjoy the appetisers we had with a couple of drinks in the early evening. The breakfasts were good -... More
