Stayed overnight on 11th and 18th June, requested an omelette as items on menu were not suitable, with some reluctance on the 11th it was served, on the 18th after a 35 minute wait it was served with no apology for the delay, all meals from menu had been served and I ate alone, spoke to Operations Manager who then obviously spoke to wait person who grudgingly said she had forgotten to place order, despite writing it down in front of me.
Coffe and Tea were served before desserts, an unusual practice.
The rooms were OK but do not deviate from the set menu!!!!!

I travel frequently for business. This was my 2nd stay here. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Minibar was empty and I didn't see vending machines for bottled water but got water with room service. Was a bit annoyed with room service though. The food was ok, just a basic pasta dish which comes with garlic bread. I didn't realise that though and ordered extra garlic bread. Staff could have told me it already came it!

Didn't do breakfast so can't comment.

Check in could have been quicker. I explained I was priority check in and he gave me forms to fill in. I started doing this but asked why as other ich's don't ask. He then realised I was pc member and just got me to sign in. Check out was a little frantic but I find mist hotels are. My only teal gripe with reception is that it's so close to the stairs ghat people have to queue on them. Not very safe.

We stayed here for 1 night and were really impressed. We got a great rate for B&B and we had dinner in the bar when we arrived. Food in the bar was served until 10pm and we arrived at 9.45pm and they had no problem taking the order and it was freshly made. The hotel itself is right in the town centre and easy to find as its next to a big multi-story car park and the bus station. The hotel has its own small car park which they told us about before we arrived. The room had flatscreen TV and nice clean bathroom. I've no problem recommending this place.

Stayed here on a trip wih family and friends. +tive - The hotel is band in the middle of Preston, probably the tallest building in Preston with its own car park. Breakfast staff very helpful. -tive - small car park, when we called up we were told it was first come first serve basis but was overheard a guest saying to reception that he did not find a space though he booked a parking space, so obviously the info on the phone was wrong. In the end the manager agreed to let me block two cars and park on the condition that I would move my car at time during the night, must say the manager was very accommodative on this count. To top it up this is a free car park. the Building is ageing and it needs a complete refurbishment. This hotel does not have any sofa beds at all.

Room Tip: Ask for top floors for a better view.

Got a fantastic deal on this hotel via the Daily Mail on a 2 nights for 1 offer. The hotel is situated next to the bus station, so its ideally placed for the shops, bars and restaurants. Check in was performed with the utmost efficiency and professionalism. The room on the 6th floor, although not massive was clean, comfortable and had a good view over the northern part of town. The caribbean carnival was on while we were at Preston and was enjoyable. I wouldnt hessitate for a second to return to this hotel.
