We spent a couple of nights here recently to attend a wedding. We booked the Woodland King rooms which was one of the best hotel rooms we have ever had. Not just as they're roomy and sumptuously finished, but they are decorated to a high standard, the beds are comfortable, the linen is superb, the free goodies in the bathroom... More

I have eaten at Stanley house on a number of occasions and the food has always been lovely. They were great in ensuring that halal options could be provided on a special birthday booking. The sunday lunch in the grill is excellent value.

Booked overnight stay as my daughter had appointment at nearby hospital and gave us a break in journey from North East. Had read reviews prior to booking but still feel the hotel exceeded our expectations on arrival. Plenty of parking and views of surrounding countryside are lovely. Hotel public areas and rooms in woodlands annexe are very tastefully furnished and... More

We spent a night here recently for our Anniversary. From the moment we arrived we were totally relaxed. All the staff were so pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. The two hours we spent in the spa was totally relaxing. The views from the spa are lovely. Our room was in the very modern woodlands area. They were beautifully... More

Perfect stay at a great hotel set in the middle of the countryside. Didn't try the spa but will on my return. Great room and facilities in a historic building that's been fitted out superbly. Thoroughly recommended.

Nice hotel set way out of the way near to Blackburn. Well that is how it feels but blackburn is actually only 10minutes. Excellent service and great rooms. Comfortable bed with great shower too. Porter kept the drinks coming till very late and the price was very good for what it is. Breakfast (we were quite late) was a little... More

This hotel feels like an occasion celebrating factory. The location , gardens and rooms are very impressive but to us it lacked any personality, sacrificed on the altar of processing weddings. From the minute we arrived we felt processed and the bill was eye watering.

Good brekki, comfy beds, immaculate and individually decorated room, good shower, friendly reception staff. The gardens are well cared for so creating a lovely impression on arrival. Wifi a little patchy... More
