First review on trip advisor and working in the hospitality industry myself it pains me to write such a review. The hotel is not part of the Mercure Hotel Group anymore and has since been bought out by a private owner. Myself, my sister and parents had booked the hotel, one twin room and one double for two nights. Rates... More

We stayed here for one night on our way to Mull and were so delighted by the kindness, immaculate surface, delightful room, excellent breakfast and all-round hospitality, we immediately booked another night for our return journey to London. The views over the Ribble are lovely, the breakfast was among the best we've ever had with superb service - two minutes... More

We paid just under £160 for 2 nights via an agency for an executive room where it was listed as a Mercure hotel. On arrival we found it had been bought and was no longer part of the hotel group. I hope the family owners who bought it in November will improve it and quickly. On the positive side: Large... More

Dear Mr. A. I am sorry that you have had a disappointed stay at the Foxfields Hotel and after you brought the room situation to my attention when you checked out this morning I went straight away to investigate the matter. I agree the room was not acceptable and I only wish you had mentioned it as soon as you... More

We stayed at this hotel this weekend and had a fabulous weekend. We had a very large suite with a separate living area, very unusual for the price we thought. Must mention the lovely hotel hens as we did enjoy watching them from our window, they are allowed to wonder around the gardens free All staff made us feel very... More

Booked a table for 11 people Saturday 1st August 2015. Made welcome from the start, the staff were extremely friendly, and we were quickly shown into the bar area, awaiting other guests to arrive. Table booked for 7.30, but as usual for a large group, somebody always arrives late. Not a problem to the staff. All arrived, orders taken and... More

Dear Catchylufc, Please once again accept my apologies for your room not being ready at the stated time - we were doing our best to get all the rooms serviced however on occasions some rooms will take longer than others to get back to the required standard for re-letting. You shouldn't have had to wait so long for the drinks... More

I stopped for 2 nights for a wedding in the area. When we booked (over 2 days) 1 party was told no deposit, one party told £20 and another 50% - didn't seem to know what they were talking about. Rang earlier in the week to confirm the booking and prices. When we checked in late Friday night, the room... More

Where do I begin....I suppose the start would be a good place. We booked our wedding in June 2013 when this hotel was still owned by it's previous owners Mercure, and to be honest the price was a big factor alongside the commitment shown to us by the the Wedding Co-Ordinator Alison Lamb. Over the next 16 months we were... More

Me & my mum enjoyed a delicious, filling afternoon tea then a nice chill out & relax in the lovely pool & steam room-well worth going!! Very pleasant staff too. Would definitely go again especially as the price is too good to miss & so close to home.
