“Christmas trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Very pleased with our stay and room. Staff very friendly and helpful.
We have booked to stay when we head north again after our visit to family over Christmas. This stay coincided with the vists of two sets of friends - not even planned!

We visit family in Preston a few times a year and thus was the first time we used this hotel which is an excellent hotel and extremely dog friendly.
Staff excellent & very helpful, we were made to feel
very welcome including my Mum's dog.
We will certainly be booking this hotel again next time we visit family.

We stayed at the Tickled Trout for a birthday dinner and treat, thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Having a birthday so near to Christmas can be a gastronomic challenge, glad to say not a piece of Turkey to be seen! Wonderful and varied menu and extremely comfortable accommodation.

Noisy air conditioning or some other hotel equipment meant we were woken every twenty minutes. it was that bad we just got up and left at 3 am. Carpets dusty and room shabby and dated. I would not recommend

Had a great night in a good hotel and was well looked after.The setting was rather pleasant and surprisingly quiet for its location.
Shame I arrived and left in the dark, I think the real beauty of the stay would be even better in the summer.

Very conveniently located hotel with generous sized rooms, comfortable bar and great breakfasts. I stay here often as its a good hotel to go for a run from as its right next to the riverside footpath to a nature reserve.
