I've seen some of the other reviews on here and the management response. I think that as long as you realise that the rooms and some other areas look a bit tired and dated, there is otherwise not much wrong with the place. Staff that I encountered were happy and helpful. My room was clean and smelt fine. Breakfast was... More

I stayed for 2 nights, the hotel is well located in Bolton centre and has its own parking. In the pictures the hotel looked fresh and modern but the reality is very different. The interior, bedrooms and bath rooms are dated and need to be refurbished to bring up to an acceptable standard. There is a gym and swimming pool... More

Hotel needs some updating and investment as its looking very tired in places, particularly the bathrooms. The staff are very friendly and helpful and in particular the young lad Lucas is a credit to the hotel. Food in the restaurant was very good and was always very hot and cooked correctly.

I stay on a regular basis because of the position and it is convenient for my office, when coming up from London. Rooms are fine although it is hard to distinguish between executive rooms and ordinary rooms (bar of chocolate and a bottle of water in the former). It is probably worth avoiding the restaurant and bar food unless you... More

Doing an overnight in Bolton picked this for central location. Easy to get to and park then very helpful staff. Nice room and shower room. Only complaint was that A/C did not work and the room was too hot for comfort without opening window; which let the noise in.

After calling reception and asking if they had a different room (and being told all kingside beds in the hotel are like that) we were offered a double room and a... More
