“Fantastic stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Recently stayed at the tempest with my wife for my birthday . We stayed in room 13 with the hot tub. On arrival we were made to feel welcome and given the key to our room. The room was large and very comfortable and the bed huge. The hot tub was warm and ready to go. We ate in the restaurant on both nights of our stay and found the food very reasonably price and absolutely gorgeous. The breakfast is also very nice with a good selection of cereal, yogurts and cooked breakfast. The selection of the beers in the bar are also very good. All in all an excellent stay with great food and beer .

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

I have stayed at this hotel before and always look forward to going again.

They have got the balance just right. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable . There is a choice of eating in the bar or the restaurant but , either way, the food is great . Breakfast also really sets you up for the day with loads of choice.

The service and friendliness is excellent . It is great to see the Hotel so well supported by local businesses for various functions.

Would always recommend a long or a short stay here. Location is brilliant whether for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: The Club rooms in the new block are beautiful. Recommended if you are there for more than a couple...

My husband and I decided to book the hot tub room (13) for a nice relaxing break.
The room was just perfect and the view from the hot tub was amazing!
There is absolutely no faults at all with this place.
We will definately be going back!

The best pub and food in the area. You can't go wrong with any of the classics. I did however try the chicken bacon and prawn stack for my starter which so unlike the tempest was tiny and not worth the money. However all the other food was delicious as service brill as usual.

Went here with friends for a Sunday lunch. Very popular venue at weekends but has classic country pub ambience with a dog friendly bar, and an eclectic range of local and not so local beers. The restaurant offered an excellent menu designed to please most tastes with classic pub fare such as steak and ale pie but they also do a rather nice balti as well as a number of fish dishes too. The meal was good value for money and very tasty and despite the Sunday rush, service was timely. I would thoroughly recommend this venue if in the locale.

We booked a meal at this restaurant after seeing the reviews on trip adviser. Those reviews were spot on! The ambience, service and - most of all the food - were all excellent! I had the 'Bolton Abbey lamb hotpot' and it was simply delicious! My husband had the haddock and chips which was beautifully served. We will definitely go back!
