As party of a coach party (lead to believe the first coach party since being privately run), We were impressed. Upon arrival we were greeted by a member of staff who handed us our room keys and a copy of the evening menu, which away great as we were all tired after being on the road for 10 hours. Our... More

We were staying in the hotel to be near family, so didn't eat in the hotel or use the leisure facilities. The large room was clean, but in need of attention/updating. The bed had a very firm mattress and the shower took a very long time to warm up (but was good when it did). There was free wifi but... More

What a fabulous place to stay. The staff are so friendly and professional, nothing too much trouble. The rooms are spacious, with lounge area, bedroom, bathroom with both bath and walk in shower. Everything was of the highest standard, including the food.

Stayed just one night, as had booked into Northcote Manor, just up the road, for a meal. The rooms were big and well furnished, if slightly tired, but that was more than made up for by the staff! They really understood the meaning of customer service, which is lacking in so many establishments in every price range. Thank you!

from the minute you step through the door you are hit with the musty smell of an old and tired hotel. Check in was swift and friendly. Little things like the check in sheet is a photocopy which was not straight and the home made room card details were laughable. Reception area was untidy and cluttered and the carpet and... More

I stayed here a number of years ago when working in Blackburn and as I was in the area again thought I would repeat the stay. As I was driving up I telephoned to ensure that I would be able to dine when I arrived. The first thing I noticed was a sign that would have been obscured by snow... More

We stayed here on a 'reward' break through work. We arrived and although there was a quite busy wedding on the staff were very friendly and attentive. The rooms are magnificent! So large. When we walked in we wondered where the bed was because there was a sofa and chairs but there was another room, like a suite! We ate... More

A great big thank you to all the staff at the Foxfields Hotel for hosting my ball. The food and service was amazing and a special thank you to Alison the Assistant Manager who without her professional support the night would not have been a success!
