We (family of four) stayed at this hotel whilst en route to Manchester Airport. Check in and check out was good. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was ok and I would be more than happy for the family to stay here again.

Googled to find hotel really close to M6; up popped this one, astonishingly reasonably priced. Never stayed at Holiday Inn before but have tried most competitors. If Room number 1 is representative of all rooms in the hotel then rooms cannot be beaten for space, cleanliness and convenience. Hair dryer next to mirror, night light in bathroom, huge shower, directional bedside reading lights, free WiFi and breakfast included. Only improvement for me personally would have been a king bed and much firmer mattress. Charlotte is a real asset to the reception. Thank you.

My family & I took 3 rooms for 3 nights & can only say a big thank you to all the helpful & friendly staff (especially Michael)for the excellent treatment that we received.
Breakfast was more than adequate with no restriction on helpings, & our evening meal on the last night was unexpectedly good.
My daughter enjoyed her birthday cake, with candles in the garden on the second night with plates etc (& alcohol!) supplied by the hotel.
Wifi works everywhere including the gardens & car park areas.
The rooms were very spacious & clean with air conditioning & digital TV. Access from the M6, both North & South, is very close. Travelling to Blackpool & the Great Eccleston Show was accomplished with ease,

This hotel was very clean. The contemporary style double room was basic but comfortable and had everything you might need, featuring free of charge Wi-Fi available in all areas, a 26-inch LCD TV and an en suite bathroom. Really comfy bed. Really easy to find and near the motorway. Free private parking on site & reservation is not needed. Nice complimentary breakfast (included in the room rate) in restaurant. A great stop over.

Had an overnight stay here in June. It's in a very convenient position, easy to find, and plenty of parking. The inside of the hotel is superb. The lobby is very moden and the bedrooms are large, even with an extra bed in it for our daughter. The bathroom is amazing. I want the shower in my house! The toiletries are good brands. The double bed was too soft for our liking, though. The breakfast was nice and good value. The staff were very friendly, one even changed the tv channel to a children's channel in the lobby to amuse our daughter while we finished breakfast. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Hi Fozzler

Thanks you for your kind words and I am so glad that we were able to look after yourself and your daughter so well!

The whole team does our best to ensure that we look after the individual needs of all our guests but especially the children - so that the whole family can enjoy their break!

We make a great stopover for anyone traveling North to South or vice versa - so hopefully this will not be your only visit and we will see you back again very, very soon !

Take care

What a FANTASTIC hotel. Could'nt fault it,apart from having to leave.Can't believe it is only an Express, total luxury in regards decor, lovely grounds, incredible air con,(a total blessing in this heat), lovely staff who were very helpful, great food, excellent location with regards position and local amenities. Even though it's just off the motorway you could have heard a pin drop in the room at night. To top it all off it's a dog friendly hotel (not many of those anywhere) our Border Collie loved it! We have stayed in many Expresse's and Holiday Inns but you would go a long way to beat this one. We will definitely be back......

Room Tip: Don't think it would matter. All the rooms are new.

Hi Lynn M

Thanks for you're fantastic comments and I certainly be the first to agree with you, but then again I am a little biased!

Always nice when our first time guests love the Hotel and get a WOW from the Hotel, staff and the facilities have to offer. Even better if we can keep the dog happy as well!

We will definitely look forward to your next trip and creating that " Home from Home " experience for you!

Take care

Stayed here for a weekend as my brother had an athletics meeting in Preston. I think I managed to book this hotel by accident as I thought it was closer to Preston centre, but even though it was not where I had expected, I thoroughly enjoyed staying in this hotel.

Rooms were large and spacious and exceptionally clean. Beds were also really comfortable. Breakfast is always included and is the usual sausage, beans, scrambled egg, cereals, toast, tea, tea, coffee etc.

We had no car, so we ordered taxis to get about. It cost between £12-£15 for a taxi into the centre of Preston.

Would definitely stay again in this hotel!
