We are a family of 5 including 3 children under 9, one of whom has special needs. We booked this hotel as it had a family room that slept 5, which is always so hard to find. The room itself was big, with room for the children to play as well as sleep and it had a lovely little bathroom... More

We had such a lovely stay at this hotel. A stay made special by the staff who went out of their way to make our anniversary special. On arrival we were greeted by the receptionist who was very welcoming and attentive. The room was spacious, clean, warm and very comfortable. The food was excellent and really good value. This is...

Treated my brother and his wife to a weekend here for a birthday celebration and also the Clitheroe food festival. Only complaint is that on both nights in the restaurant the bill was wrong so do check before paying..

Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, what lets this hotel down is the need for decorating. Bedroom I stayed in was very dated, the window in both the ensuite and bedroom were broken (locks and a crack in one of them) the carpet was very dated and looked dirty due to the sheer age of it. There were cobwebs on... More

Set in beautiful countryside (even if it is in Lancashire and not god's own country of Yorkshire) the reception was clean modern and the greeting was friendly. The hotel itself is a nice blend of new and old. Our room was spacious, clean, well equipped and had superb views over the grounds. The brie and the greek salad starters were... More

I rate a hotel by the little extras that cost nothing but make the stay more pleasant like: quality drinks/snacks in room, real coffee, glass glasses, good toiletries. It's a lovely setting with views over the hills and the well manicured front garden. The staff are extremely polite and friendsly.
