Stanley House Hotel & Spa

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 23, 2013

We stayed at this hotel over 2 nights to attend a friends wedding. It is set on a hill in beautiful grounds in the pictuesque Ribble valley. We stayed in the Manor House which has individually themed rooms. Our room was extremely comfortable with an inglenook fireplace which contained a sofa. The decor was tasteful and the bathroom contained a slipper bath and shower cubicle. There are more contemporary rooms in an annex building and these were also of a very high standard. On the day of arrival we had a spa session which has to be experienced to be believed. the facilities are second to none with a hydro pool with jacuzzi and several steam treatment rooms. We also had our evening meal which was excellent with service to match. the staff could not do enough for us. The wedding itself was amazing and the organisation was faultless. The breakfast service was very good and all the staff were friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as did the rest of our group and I for one will be revisiting Stanley House again in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: All the rooms that we saw were of high quality. the ground floor ones have easy disabled access

A treat indeed, beautiful building with gorgeous sculptures, very attentive staff and food fit for a king. The treatment room are beautifully situated with glorious views, the aroma is divine and the sauna's well equipped. The ice showers are fabulous. Well worth a visit for a weekend getaway or a spa break. Well worth the trip

Booked afternoon tea to celebrate my mum's birthday - 6 of us plus my very young great niece. As soon as we were seated we were asked if we wanted tea or coffee. This arrived soon after. Sandwiches and cakes then came. Sandwiches were small but all with tasty filling. We then had scone and cream with a choice of preserves. There were then 6 cakes between two all different. The staff were very friendly, smart and service was with a smile. We were not rushed and offered more tea and coffee. The view is wonderful and the place is very tastfully decorated. Will definitely be back.

My friend and I had pencilled in a date to meet but didn't book until the last minute. We chose this hotel because of the recent award for the best facial treatment.We had the Spa Escape offer and upgraded the meal to dine in the Grill on the Hill.As soon as we arrived we felt relaxed and looked after.Unbelievably I had forgotten my swimming costume but the ladies in the Spa were very kind and printed out directions for the town centre nearby so I didn't waste time getting another one.
The whole experience was excellent value for money. We were lucky enough to have the hydro pool largely to ourselves between four and six as the sun was setting and the lighting effects are amazing.
Although we were the only ones dining in The Grill as it was midweek we were made to feel very special and not rushed in any way.
The award winning facial was impressive as was the classic massage. My friend had a reparative facial and gel nails.
Have already booked to return in January with some more girlfriends...that's our Christmas list sorted.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this wonderful Spa and Hotel.

Room Tip: Stay in rooms above the Spa so you don't have to go out of the building.

I have just enjoyed a superb Spa Day at Stanley House.
Having been in the Industry for 15 years I am not easily impressed, however Stanley House totally exceeded my expectations.
It is the height of good taste and luxury.
The whole experience is a joy from start to finish. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. The rooms are beautifully appointed. The staff are friendly yet professional.
I love the individual changing rooms which add an extra touch of indulgence.
My treatments were of an excellent standard although they did finish 20 minutes earlier than we were informed.
Later we had lunch in Mister Freds which is a very pleasant venue. Good food, great service, nice atmosphere and good value.
A great day out.

We went on a hen do here and were very impressed. The hotel itself is beautiful, out in the middle of the Ribble valley, On top of a small hill with views of the beautiful surrounding countryside. We stayed in the woodland rooms which are outside of the main hotel, a bit of a bind when we were going to dinner and it was raining, but the hotel provided umbrellas in the foyer of the building just in case. Sadly they had all been used by other guests and were in the hotel awaiting use on the return journey!
We had a treatment on both days which were both very good, we also used the spa on the second day which was enjoyable, we did try to use it on the first day but with an additional fee of £25 each on top of what we had already paid we thought it too expensive.
We ate at the grill on the hill both evenings and I have to say the food was fabulous, staff were attentive and helpful above and beyond...especially on the second night when we had a scavenger hunt which they all helped us take part in with gusto!!!! One member of staff even went home to find us an item that none of us could find......exceptional service we thought.
We went on two separate 'deals' as we were effectively two parties as some came for one night others for two, the prices were not 'cheap' but we definitely got what we paid for..good service, good food and beautiful rooms with lovely views. Thank you to all of the staff for being good sports and helping to make this a weekend to remember for us.
Would I recommend this hotel......most definitely yes.

I booked as a birthday present for my mum on the Escape for the Night spa break. The spa facilities are excellent, definitely the best spa I've been too.
All staff were extremely helpful & friendly.

Our room was amazing, putting other 5* hotels I've previously stayed in to shame.

The 3 course meal included was delicious with plenty of choice & reasonably priced drinks.

Breakfast was also lovely. No complaints all round! The package is excellent value for money & we'll most certainly be back again.
