Happy weekend at this hotel recently. The room was fine with comfortable bed and a wonderful views of the moors - dark threatening clouds and stunning rays of sunshine. The booking and check in procedures were easy and welcoming - very nice helpful receptionist. Ditto with check out.
the bathroom was a bit dated but clean and works OK. The staff are very friendly, especially the breakfast waitresses who were wonderful - constantly smiling, very efficient and really helpful. Their patience with the coach groups was exemplary.
The bar area was a bit crowded much of the time as there were several parties/weddings and coach groups staying but it wasn't a real problem. There was some noise from the parties but it wasn't overwhelming. The gardens are really pretty and well kept, and the pool is a welcome bonus.
The hotel is conveniently located near the M61 and isn't noisy despite being on a main road. Lots of parking behind the hotel

Fixtures and fittings pretty jaded all round; rooms clean if not very spacious; beds comfortable enough.
Food (breakfast) very disappointing though - no buffet available as not many guests staying and 'potato rosti' turned out to be the boiled potatoes from the previous evening fried up! Quality of other items not great either.
Staff all very pleasant and helpful.

We were going to a weding locally and needed a base, the hotel provided a good standard of accommodation , a comfortabke large bed, friendly staff and a breakfast better than many. We stayed in a suite, well worth the extra money for the additional room and facilities.

We want to say a massive thank you to sue who was amazing with all the details, Dominique and Irene we can't thank you enough a true credit to the hotel and two lovely ladies. And lastly Carl who looked after me from the morning of the wedding and then both of us to the end of the evening, you were truly amazing. Special memories of a special day. All we have had is compliments from all our guests. Thank you again. Alison and Mathew x

Stayed here 25th and 26th July 2014, unfortunately it was 2 of the hottest days of the year with temperatures ranging from 27c to 31c, this hotel does not have air conditioning and the rooms were unbearably hot. Good facilities here with pool and spa etc and very handy for the motorway M61 with easy access for Blackpool, Manchester & Liverpool.
If staying I would advise asking for a room at the back, rooms at the front face onto a main road and can be very noisy.

Room Tip: Bar and restaurant have a reasonable choice of drinks and food but tend to be a little on the expens...

My wife and I booked a short stay in Georgian House Hotel, Bolton. I have to say from the moment we arrived the staff were excellent, friendly and very attentive. The room was comfortable and the bed amazing 5 star comfort, although the fixtures were tired the room was very nice and spotlessly clean. Having stayed in many Hotels across Bolton and the world and consumed numerous breakfast they all paled into insignificance compared to the breakfast we received during our stay. The breakfast was excellent, Hot and very tasty everything was cooked to perfection. The staff in the restaurant were brilliant, nothing seemed to much trouble for them ensuring everything was okay from start to finish. We would recommend this Hotel to family and friends and intend making it our Hotel of choice when visiting family and friends in the future.

My friend and I stayed a couple of weeks ago, Lovely hotel, very good staff they couldn't do enough for you, friendly and professional, rooms spotlessly clean, our evening meal was included in the tour price, excellent, very tasty and fast service, great value for money, drinks in bar a tad pricey, but hey we were on holiday. Breakfast was perfect, love hotel breakfasts, buffet style so you could have as much as you wanted it, delicious! lots of little touches around hotel that show they do their best to please guests and they try to cater for everyone.
Overall if I am in this area again would have no hesitation in staying here, oh and they have a swimming pool, which we didn't try but will bring my swimming gear next time.
Thanks guys for making us so welcome.
