“Stunning views and great food!”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

A really friendly and relaxed place to stay. Our room had sweeping sunset views across the Wyre. Lovely rooms - clean, up-to-date décor and very comfortable. Excellent food and drink in the bar and the restaurant. Even though the restaurant was busy we were not rushed at all and made to feel very welcome. Wide choice on offer for breakfast. Will definitely stay here again. Thanks!

Room Tip: If you like a view ask for one of the rooms overlooking the river.

Thanks again for a 'stunning' review that reflects on the qualities that ensure that our guests relax, enjoy and subsequently return to our hotel.
Our location allows for great views and with the summer months fast approaching I am sure the sunrises and sunsets will add to our guests experience.
See you next time and thanks again.

LOVED this little gem of a hotel. booked last minute as a night away for my husbands birthday without the kids!...from the outside didnt blow us away, but a nice setting overlooking the river...once we stepped inside though..simply put...greeted very nicely , went up to our room(no lift but doesnt bother us) lovely immaculate clean room, nice size...went down to the bar to watch the grand national, lovely bar area, warm and inviting, very very friendly chatty staff...later we went for a meal in the hotel restaurant, a lovely eclectic mix of style, slihgtly rustic and then wood panelling with sloppy leather sofa by a fire...huge picture window with a view out to the river (be lovely in the summer as a big outdoof terrace too) had a gorgeous meal...starters of shrimps for hubby and black pudding and quails eggs for me..then both had the AMAZING steak burger and the parmesan and parsley frites...i would go back for a meal alone!! lovely quiet hotel for a good sleep at night..lovely attentive breakfast the next morning followed by a seamless simple check out...i review quite a bit and can honestly say on our stay, for this 1 night, we could not fault one single thing...what a great little place and for sure we will be back :@)

Room Tip: go that very small bit extra for a deluxe room. simple but very clean and modern loveliness

Stayed overnight at the end of Feb whilst visiting family in the area. We were made to feel very welcome by everyone from the reception through to the bar staff and the restaurant too. The views from the very stylish comfortable bedroom were amazing. The evening meal was superb with freshly cooked delicious food. Breakfast was excellent too. We will certainly return and hopefully be able to spare the time to stay longer as it was all over far too quickly this time! Thank you for making it so special.

We stayed overnight whilst visiting the area for a family occasion. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The only downside was the lack of a lift. As I have a problem with my hip, I found the stairs somewhat a problem. However, the room was lovely with views over the river. It was worth the effort climbing upastairs.

Thank you for your kind review. We have a great location here with stunning views and, of course, great standards that I hope eased the downside of us having no lift to upper floors.
We have an entrance available to our guests for the first floor which eases access and should you visit us again we will ensure that your room selection allows this to benefit you and ease your discomfort.

In a beautiful setting on the river bank, beautifully clean and tidy, friendly chatty staff, nice room if a little plain. Food was good, dinner and breakfast were well presented in a very nice dining room. Will use this again when visiting Fleetwood.

Room Tip: River view rooms are great

Just back from a two nights stay at the Shard celebrating my partner's 65th birthday and cannot praise it enough. We stayed in room number 6 and it was lovely, especially the views over the river which were stunning. The breakfast both mornings was very good and plentiful,just a pity I don't have a big appetite and couldn't do it justice!
We had the evening meal on my partners birthday and that too was excellent. Just like to give a big thank you to the member of staff in the restaurant who went to the trouble of buying my partner's birthday cake for me as a surprise for him. Much appreciated.

Room Tip: Room number 6 is a corner room and has a double aspect so views from both sides.

It was our pleasure to welcome you and help you celebrate the 65th. Your thanks will be passed on to my Restaurant manager.
It is pleasing to note that you experienced and enjoyed our food here at the Shard, our chefs do a great job and their food is of high quality and all freshly prepared and served.
Room 6 has to be one of my favourites with the views over and down the river and I am pleased that this added to your great stay and celebrations here.

Returned to one of my favourite hotels as work took me back to the North West for the first time in 6 months.
Greeted warmly, rooms still comfortable and warm. The free wifi is excellent and the food really is fantastic

This place is a well-run, friendly establishment with excellent customer service, great food and in a picturesque setting - couldn't ask for more.

Hope to return soon
