Myself and three friends stayed her last September on a 'Sunday driver' ( round of gold diner bed and breakfast and a round of golf)
We arrived early on the Sunday (9am!!) I asked if we could check in!!!! The receptionist informed us that the rooms were not ready ( bless her) she did however offer to take out luggage until we had finished playing golf. Our round of golf was very enjoyable ( apart from my skills!!) our evening meal was stunning, the garstang blue sauce is out of this world. One thing I will say is that the 'head' barman ( an older gentleman) he seemed to get flustered under pressure and kind of had a tad to much self importance! The other staff are great. We had a few beers and headed to bed. Rooms are very well presented and comfy. The breakfast was a buffet and very good. Overall, the whole package ( location, staff, food, golf etc) are very very good, hence I booked another four ball Sunday driver for this weekend. Can't wait.

i got married at garstang golf club in june this year, and stayed in 1 of the bridal suits for the night before the wedding, and the wedding night. the night before the wedding we had our evening meal included the the price, and could spend up to a total of £20 on the meal.the food was very reasonably priced & the portions were massive. we stayed in bridal suit room 25 on the first floor. It wasn't an OTT luxury suite which you might find in some hotels, but it was lovely and spacious with a very big, very comfortable 4 poster bed. breakfast both mornings was lovely, and again so were the staff.
Chris was the manager on duty & helped ensure everything on my big day went exaclty how it should, and i had plenty of laughs with him along the way.
the grounds of the hotel are lovely, and the rooms are cleaned daily to a high standard.
I could go on forever about this place because it is so special to me, but instead I will say if you are considering this venue for your own wedding please do not hesitiate- go for it! or if you're looking for an affordable, quality break you won't regret booking here.

We were not staying in this hotel, but visited it twice in one day for drinks and food, as it was conveniently near our B&B. We went to the Bradbeer Brasserie both times; initially, our hearts sank at the sight of the large screen showing Sky Sports; however, the volume was turned well down and so the TV did not intrude at all. Our second visit was in the evening, for a snack meal, which was tasty and good value for money. We were perhaps fortunate that the Bradbeer was fairly quiet during our visits, so we were able to relax and enjoy the views over the golf course and read the newspapers which were conveniently supplied. Staff were friendly and attentive.

Thank for your review, I am pleased you were not put off by the TV in the corner and chose to review us on the strengths of what we could offer.
As a hotel with a golf course we have to cater for a wide range of clients needs, hence the the TV in the public bar. Our residents can choose to dine in the restaurant and use the TV free residents lounge if they wish.
I hope you enjoyed your stay and will visit us again the next time you are in the area.

We have just spent two lovely nights at this hotel for my sisters wedding and would like to thank the staff for making it such a nice stay.
With the wedding being on a Saturday, we spent the night before there in preparation and had included with our stay an evening meal at the Kingfisher restaurant up to the value of £20 per person. This exceeded our expectations, the food and service were excellent. Being lucky with the weather, we were also fortunate enough to sit outside on the terrace overlooking the golf course for a night cap (or two).
The room was comfortable and well appointed (room 28, rear first floor). The room we stayed in had 2 twin beds. We had requested before staying that this be made into a kingsize, but on arrival it had not. This was not a problem - we were offered a change of room for the night but as we had unpacked we stayed put, pushing the beds together for the night before housekeeping changed it for us the next morning.
There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room, replenished daily. Also within the room was an iron and ironing board, hairdryer, and tv. The shower was good and powerful, keeping a constant temperature unlike may hotels. Again, towels were replaced daily. We had a full cooked breakfast on each morning included.
All staff worked so hard to keep guests busy and the wedding went without a hitch - it was also a busy weekend for golfers being the extended jubilee bank holiday and 14 rooms being booked out to wedding guests. They also had a 2nd Sunday wedding to cater for.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a value break away and look forward to returning myself in the future.

This hotel is really pretty dismal - the rooms are tired, the food is variable (although to be fair the evening meal was pretty good, although one of our party did find a stick in their Cumberland sausage - the waiter attempted an explanation and then offered that person's meal for free), and the service, by young inexperienced staff is really not up to much at all. The room I stayed in had single beds and was pretty cramped by the standards of good hotels, while the room we were using for our meeting was OK, with OK if not excellent wifi connectivity. Overall, a rather underwhelming experience, and unless you have a real need to stay just outside Garstang I would find it hard to recommend this hotel.

We are always disappointed when a guest chooses overly strong words to describe their experience however we always value the feedback and will try and use it to improve for other guests.
Although one of your party could fault their meal I am pleased that for someone who reviews a lot of restaurants you were extremely positive about the evening meal.
I am sorry the staff appeared inexperienced and can only suspect the surprising find of your colleague went beyond the 8 years this member of staff has been with us leaving him a little flustered.
In our hotel we always try to offer good friendly service and this can be seen in our other reviews along with other complimentary remarks about our spacious bedrooms , I am however sorry that in your case we couldn’t meet your expectations.

We stayed for the second time at Garstang and it was as good as last year. The staff were great as was the food. The bedrooms were comfortable. The only drawback was that the Pro-shop didn't cater for ladies!

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, your positive comments were well received by the team. I believe you may have already spoken to the staff regarding the pro shop (always the best way) and I am sure the pro shop manager will look into this for you.

Thanks again
