The Old Posthouse Hotel
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Clitheroe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 10, 2014

We spent three nights here for a summer break. The Hotel is clean and well run, and as we had booked ahead and paid, were given our room key straight away. We were on the top floor and I hadn't expected the two flights of stairs we had to negotiate with a heavy case, as there isn't a lift. The room was nice and bright, with a great view up to the castle, and a spotless bathroom. The bed was comfortable and all of the usual facilities were there, including a kettle, tea, coffee, biscuits, plus a hair drier, ironing board and iron. Add to this free Wifi and what more could you want.
The manager was very helpful and advised us on various attractions and walks.
Breakfast was the usual selection of cold buffet or full English breakfast, with various options in between such as eggs on toast etc. These were very fresh and served promptly. See elsewhere for my review on the restaurant.
The Old Post House is situated just a few hundred yards from the main crossroads in the town centre, and a mere 50 yards or so from the station in the other direction. An ideal location to explore the delights of this lovely little town. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Good views from the top floor

We saw this hotel online last year but it was fully booked on the dates we required...no wonder! What a smashing place this is, friendly check-in, great room, lovely clean bathroom, very central location but best of all was the breakfast...fresh local produce and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon was just delicious...very very impressed and would definitely recommend...we'll be back!! :-D

We just had one night in Clitheroe after a very long flight. Old Post has a traditional facade but is modern and bright inside. Warm welcome, cosy, spacious room up a few flights of stairs and comfortable bedding. Perfect after hours of flying to reach Manchester. Restaurant downstairs shares with the bar - bright tablecloths, cosy. Breakfast is served in the same room. Plenty of choice including full cooked. Good value food and good service. We enjoyed our first night in England and recommend Old Post Hotel for value, service and friendliness. Clitheroe is a pretty village with castle ruins on the hill.

Room Tip: Had room on top floor (2nd), at back so no noise from street or bar. Bar was quiet the night we were...

Recently stayed at The Old Post House for our son's wedding, our whole family plus many relatives also stayed here. We all found Wayne and his staff to be very welcoming, polite and friendly.
The hotel itself is extremely comfortable. The room and bathroom were very clean and all needs were met, hot drinks and biscuits available, iron/ironing board, extra bedding etc.
The food, including breakfast and evening meal, were excellent. There was an abundance of food to suit all tastes and we enjoy the fact that much of it is locally sourced.
We left feeling that we would happily make a return visit in the future. Many thanks to all concerned.

First impressions were not encouraging. After driving all day, never been to Clitheroe, we found the place but there's a double yellow line along the front of the hotel. That means no stopping. How are you supposed to check-in and unload? Anyway, we did stop and a local directed us to the hotel park at the back, down a narrow lane. Things picked up from there, except for some young female yelling at the top of her voice and swearing at her boyfriend at 2:00am as they walked down the back lane. Not the hotel's fault. As others have reported, breakfast and dinner are excellent and service is good. I was surprised that local berries were available so early in the season, delicious. And full marks for sourcing lots of fresh, local food. We enjoyed our two-night stay and judged that it was very good value for money.

Stopped here many times while working over here and although it has changed ownership recently is still an oasis of comfort, good food and friendliness. I look forward to my next visit to this excellent hostelry!

Having lived in Clitheroe, I know the place quite well. But this was my first stay. It's privately run and is superb.... the meals are wholesome and great value and the breakfast is the best I've ever had (proper local ingredients). The wifi is free and perfect plus my room is very clean and comfortable. Even with nice little touches such as quality drink making facilities and nice toiletries.

It's bang in the centre of town next to the train station and buses.
