“A pleasant overnight stay.”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

I stayed with my partner in one of the Woodland rooms. These rooms are stylish and very modern with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the countryside. The bathrooms are well equipped with a double ended bath and large walk in shower with huge shower head. Only niggle with the Woodland rooms is the doors close very noisily so you can hear others coming and going during the night.
The Spa is really relaxing with both the hydrotherapy pool and sauna having full length windows overlooking the countryside.
We had dinner in Fred's and we were a little disappointed as the food at best was average. We also paid £37 for a bottle of wine and the waitress spilt an amount when filling our glasses. The bar area would benefit from a real fire instead of the fake one stuck to the wall. This would also help to create a better atmosphere as the whole area lacked ambiance.

What a super Hotel/Events Venue,a combination of the Old Manor House plus modern additions and a spa have created a quite exceptional experience which we all enjoyed when celebrating our daughters wedding.
From the genuinely warm welcome ona cold snow bound day to the smiling professional staff in every area of the hotel we found a gem in this spot.

All our family members and friends enjoyed their stay,the well organised ceremony,a lovely well served wedding lunch and a really well appointed rooms for everything.
sincere thanks to all at Stanley House for helping to make our daughters special day truly wonderful

Room Tip: Rooms 6 and 7 in the Old Manor are super and quaint,individual room thermostats kept us warm as toas...

I stayed here while on a business trip in January 2013. I stayed in Room 1 in the Manor House and it was a wonderful room. I had full use of the spa as part of my stay and was lucky to have sole use as it was not busy - the Spa really was world class. There isn't a swimming pool (only a very large Hydrotherapy pool) or gym . I ate in the Grill on the Hill restaurant and felt the food was almost Michelin star quality, the starter and dessert in particular.

Breakfast was in Fred's and was very nice.

10 out of 10 for this hotel

Room Tip: Room 1 in the Manor house was very good

Had a couple of nights here - in the bridal suite - it was beautiful. Decor was ivory and gold, good quality furniture, four poster bed, large well equipped modern bathroom. Meet and greet was pleasant and professional. Prompt and friendly attention in the bar areas. Excellent dinners both evenings in the Grill on the Hill. Front of house and all her staff were very good. The chef has some brilliant ideas and it seems his locally sourced meat/game/fish is very popular. We certainly enjoyed the fish and Bowland lamb. All beautifully cooked and presented. Only quibble would be breakfast - young and willing staff, very friendly but buffet could certainly be improved. Otherwise, we were very happy with the whole break.

We live local and I was trying to find somewhere "grown-up" for afternoon tea for my daughters birthday with other family members. What a treat - can't believe this has been just around the corner from us for so long. We were taken through to the conservatory and the decor really impressed. We ordered coffees and selections of cakes - my mums scones had been freshly baked, still warm, a selection of three different types. My daughter had a trio of cake that were really scrummy and we were really treated well by the staff. Can't wait to go back!
The new spa looked fab too!!

I visited the main restaurant here with my girlfriend and her parents for her birthday and it was an amazing night. Excellent choice of drinks, a wonderful meal and great service. Nothing negative to say about this place at all except the hangover I woke up with after sampling one too many of the cocktails!

Dined at Mr Fred's for lunch following a recommend, having not visited Stanley House before. Totally impressed with the service and surroundings and the food was superb, especially the desserts. Well worth a visit.
