The preserved remains of Whalley Abbey are worth visiting. The history of the abbey is fascinating and the grounds are beautiful. Lovely gardens and river walk. A new cafe should also be opening soon, so I'll be going back to see what it's like. Only £2 to go in and no parking costs. Good value.

Thanks to the wonderful staff who helped us to plan and deliver a fantastic, stress free day - can't thank you enough! Everyone commented on the beautiful venue, fab food and... More

We were attending a wedding in Mitton Hall nearby to Whalley. We had travelled up from South of England the morning of the wedding. The staff at the Abbey arranged for us to check into our rooms at 11.30 to freshen up before going to the wedding. The Abbey is set in beautiful grounds. The staff were friendly and helpful....

Fantastic place to relax and forget about the world outside. I took advantage of three nights for the price of two including full English breakfast. The food was freshly cooked and the service fantastic. The Rooms are well furnished and the beds comfortable. Fresh towels every morning. Cannot wait to return

I'm lucky to say I live in Whalley and have such a beautiful venue on my doorstep. I was first introduced to Whalley Abbey as a venue in 2002 at my cousin's wedding and the service we received then was enough for my wife and I took book the venue for our wedding in April 2013. The personal assistance in... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Whalley Abbey. I stayed overnight prior to a retreat day from work. From the moment I arrived the staff were so helpful, friendly and considerate to my needs. The room was clean, bright and had all the facilities I could have expected and far exceeded my expectations based upon the fact that the room rate... More

If you are not part of a wedding party staying at the hotel i would not recommend this spot. We stayed on an evening where there was a wedding the following day and happened to be the only non wedding guests in the hotel. We were put in the room opposite the brides maids so at 6.30 am there was... More

Superb home cooked food and friendly staff really lift this hotel cum conference venue cum retreat house into another league. Every meal is freshly prepared and imaginatively cooked. A reasonable choice is available. The staff are attentive, good natured and friendly. The bedrooms are comfortable and quietly situated for a good night's sleep. All in all, I could not wanted...
