Impromptu visit on Sunday tea time. We have eaten here for many years, and have never been disappointed with the food or service. However the chef and the manager have recently changed and this is always a concern, as standards can drop. Not so here thank goodness. It seemed as though a large party had just left, but the staff... More

Room a little tired and bathroom not very luxurious. Service incredibly slow in restaurant, food average when it arrived. Very friendly staff. Probably wouldn't stay again. But basic and functional, ok for a stopover if that's what is needed

We recently had a wonderful stay. Our room was small but perfectly formed. It was our anniversary and we had some champers waiting for us when we checked in which was a lovely touch. The food was gorgeous and the service was second to none. Around the hotel there are lots of green hills and plenty of walking routes which... More

Eating in the bar area was too noisy The food was disappointing. The fish and chips was soggy The coffee was weak and served before the dessert came Lovely young waitresses but they disappeared. The millstone was busy but more staff should have been on duty. Not cheap so sadly not value for money

I stayed for one night prior to business in Blackburn and was really impressed the Millstone at Mellor had actually taken note of my request for a quiet room (not all hotels do).

I stayed one night for a business meeting. Restaurant was fine, rooms were small but clean, staff was great. It was a little bit old fashioned but that was their style. I recommend for the people likes silence and peaceful places. You can also stay with your family

I stayed overnight. The room was excellent and staff were very friendly and helpful. I had an excellent supper ( quite expensive ) and the breakfast was probably the best I have had in the UK ( that good). The dining room was superb and I would highly recommend this lovely B&B

Situated in a lovely Lancashire village the Millstone is a delight. The place is airy and spotlessly clean. A range of cask beer was on offer, I chose the Thwaites original and wasn't disappointed it was clean and fresh tasting. There was plenty to chose from on the menu, I went for the tempura battered seafood ( prawns,squid and monkfish)... More
