We had a wonderful two night stay at the Best Western Higher Trapp.The staff were attentive but not intrusive. The room was clean and comfortable. The food in Fitzys bar was probably the best we have had anywhere especially the home made curry.Will definitely return.

From the moment we booked it, right through to us checking out a couple of days after the wedding, we were thoroughly looked after. In preparation for the wedding when we spoke to Donna, she was always so helpful and... More

My husband's grandad was in his last days so we traveled from Leeds to Burnley to be with him and family. We also had... More

Great relaxing couple of days. Staff are so friendly and helpful and for a 3 star hotel the food is very good with an excellent choice. We keep going back regularly because of the welcome we receive and to have a chat with Raymond the "master barman".

Higher trapp is a very nice hotel, receptionist welcomed us felt like she couldn't do enough for us, our room was a superior room but not superior in my eyes, orange was mouldy, dressing gowns only had one belt, and the door had a inch gap so at night the room lit up from the light from off the corridor...
