Myself and my two parents stayed here for two nights. When we got home we noticed that we had been charged for 8 breakfasts. We were also charged for the tea and coffee in the rooms. I therefore wrote to the owners over two weeks ago asking for an explanation but no response. I would advise anyone to check their... More

My friend had arranged a farewell meet in the coffee lounge last night. The surroundings are lovely and the cakes looked delightful (I wish I'd had a cake). We ordered the pulled chicken dish for myself and the trio of sliders for my friend. My food was cold and inedible except for the mc fries which were fine, but then... More

We stayed here recently for a nearby wedding and were delighted with the room we were given. The Boatyard is in an excellent location for the motorway and also the canal and other nearby attractions. Our room had plenty of features, free WiFi and a fantastic shower! The bed was extremely comfy and ensured a good nights sleep. The free... More

A lot of work has gone into making this a friendly and comfortable place. The inside is scattered with comfy seats, light oak beams criss cross across a white plaster ceiling and old canal prints litter the walls. A large car park between the main pub/restaurant and the canal could spoil the views a bit, but the sweeping veranda is... More

We came here today as we drove past on our way to Chorley (were not local) and decided to call for lunch on the off chance. The pub/hotel is a very pleasent place situated along the canal and has lovely views. The bar/resteraunt area was very nice and clean and the staff were very helpful. The food I would say... More

The Boatyard is a pub by a canal with separate purpose built motel-style rooms. The rooms are quite nice. The Lancashire countryside is beautiful. However, I was kept awake until midnight by the noise from the resident next door and the noise of speeding vehicles on the nearby road throughout the night - not the fault of the hotel. The... More

What a wonderful place this is. Stayed here on several occasions and the rooms are always as you'd expect... Crisp, clean and modern.

We stayed for a long weekend while attending a wedding at nearby Samlesbury Hall. Both our rooms were modern, clean and beds extremely comfortable. Situated right next to the Canal. Nothing was too much for the staff, who were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were well cooked and piping hot. Arrived late on the Friday evening as the restaurant was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our canalside location is a winner in the sunshine - sit back and relax with a long, cool drink as you watch the narrowboats float quietly by. And if the weather's not quite so pleasant, we've got loads of room inside with a choice of comfy sofas or dining chairs and tables.With great value food made on-site from locally sourced ingredients, our menu has something for everyone and the quality of our food is superior.Our bar has four beers on hand pump and we've got a great selection of lagers, cider, wines and soft drinks.And there's no rush to drive home after an evening at The Boatyard - why not stay in one of our six recently decorated and well appointed rooms.Then wake up to a hearty breakfast and grab a latte in our coffee shop before leaving. ... more   less
