The Weavers is a beautiful old building, with bags of character and a funky modern style.
The staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful, everyone we spoke to was absolutely lovely.
The bedrooms are generously sized, with lovely soft plush carpet underfoot. Some have baths, some shower rooms ensuite; we had a shower room. It was a lovely large cubicle with a rain shower - great if you don't mind getting your hair wet, but a little impractical if you don't want to wash your hair, and sadly no shower cap was provided.
There is a decent hairdryer provided in the room, which is quite a rarity. The tea tray was well stocked with tea/coffee/sugar/milk, though perhaps a decaf tea/coffee or hot chocolate option would be nice. Curtains are thick, but not blackout, so the room isn't as dark as it perhaps could be.
The bed was wonderfully comfortable, a lovely firm-but-soft mattress, similar pillows, lovely snuggly duvet which was encased in a deliciously soft and clean smelling cover. HOWEVER... the big problem for me is that the beds are only doubles. No problem really if you're travelling alone, but me and my husband are tall and there just isn't room for two tall people in a double bed. Given the bedrooms are quite large, I'm surprised they only put double beds in as there would have been plenty of room for a kingsize.
Unfortunately, this one key factor is enough that I won't be staying there again - the smallness of the bed combined with being woken early by the light meant that my sleep quality was absolutely horrendous. It's a REAL shame, as on all other fronts this place is absolutely delightful and I'd have had no hesitation to recommend it.
Definitely go for the food though - the Sunday roast deal is phenomenally good value (three courses for £15) and the food is excellent.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Weavers is situated in a traditional weaving village oozing historical charm with excellent local walks. It began its life in the mid 18th century as a cloth finishing mill and a vital part of the textile industry in the Colne Valley. Linked with the Taylors, an influential family in the weaving business, the hose became a feature of the mill in the 19th century. The Weavers opened as a restaurant in the early 1970’s with rooms being added in 1999. The new owners, Andrew and Kate Ratcliffe, have given The Weavers a fresh lease on life with the aim of creating a fine dining and drinking experience at affordable prices. Extensive work has gone into the careful renovation of this historical building with the intention of preserving as many of the original features as possible, including the mill chimney, which dates back to the 1750’s. The gardens have been renewed to their former glory and include an outdoor eating area, terrace for drinking and a unique orangery. The Weavers is an exciting and innovative development for the area of Golcar for the whole family to enjoy. ... more less
