1. The online presentation for the hotel states that there is free car parking - the car park shown in one of the pictures is not their carpark. The second photo (which shows one car in it) is the actual car park and does not have enough room to park more than 3 cars comfortably to allow manoeuvering in and... More

This hotel is set part way up a hill on a service road off the main road. There is no designated parking for the hotel which with 3 floors of rooms is not particularly helpful. I managed to park on the service road but I don’t think I was supposed to. It looks like there is some on-road parking on... More

I stopped over for one night as I had work at a local hospital. Although this received horrendous reviews I had no problem booking. I booked through Laterooms, £25 for the night. On arrival I received a friendly greeting. Paid the advertised price and was shown to my room. The bedroom was clean and definately had clean sheets / towels.... More

did not stay at this hotel but had to cancel due to personal reasons. I called and emailed the hotel several times 5days before I was due to stay here to cancel the booking. The phone was not answered or any emails replied to! I finally got hold of the hotel the day after when a very rude lady answered... More

What to say about the hill view, I think some of these reviews are a little over the top! The hotel wasn't perfect, very old decor, peeling wallpaper, damp and a porter who barely spoke English. But the manager was friendly and helpful when we wanted to leave early and cancel our weeks booking even offering us a discount on... More

This is an amateur hotel, and by amateur I mean that is managed in a terrible unprofessional way. No appropriate information are provided at check-in, rooms are very small and anonymous, staff isn't great either, breakfast is awkward. For 60 quids, one would expect more than that.

I found the hosts friendly and warm. The room was clean and presentable. Having read the reviews before arriving I was pleasantly surprised. 35 pounds including breakfast I thought was reasonable. I agree it is nt somewhere for a romantic weekend, but for a cheap bed for the night with good access to Blackburn it suited my needs fine.
