I visited Astley Bank for the first time recently with friends for an evening meal. I had heard glowing reports about the standard of meals and I wasn't disappointed. First impressions were very good and the staff were very pleasant and friendly. The restaurant was well appointed and we dined at our appointed time. The menu was very varied so... More

Smells like a damp dog when you walk in. In my room there was someone else's hair in the sink, someone else's make up brush in the room, no remote control for the TV and multiple false fire alarms throughout the night! On the upside the restaurnt does nice food.

The first time I slept in this Hotel was in 1989 and it is still as good as it was then. Of course it had its upgrades over the years but it kept its charm. The rooms are big and spacious some even with a jacuzzi. The grounds are most beautifull. The food at in the in house restaurant is... More

I stayed here for one night as I was attending a wedding in nearby Blackburn. The hotel itself is lovely and set in beautiful landscaped grounds. Staff were friendly and the room was lovely, I had the best nights sleep in a long time. Great selection for breakfast. Highly recommended.

They enquired if we were part of the wedding party and when we said we weren't they said that they would put us in a room away... More
