“Good value, comfortable and friendly”
Reviewed October 30, 2006

We stayed here on 27th & 28th October 2006; arrived Friday, left Sunday. The room was clean, large and well equipped (with 1double and 1 single bed) and had a large corner bath with shower over. The staff were helpful, efficient and friendly. Some friends of ours also stayed at the same time; their room was in a different part of the hotel and slightly smaller with one double bed, but tastefully (and recently) decorated, though it lacked a shower over the bath.

The hotel has two places to eat: the Tavern Bar and the Restaurant, though this was closed when we were ther due to being booked for a function. Nonetheless, the Tavern Bar suited our needs well and served a good range of Pub Food at pub prices; it also had a selection of Real Ales. A full english breakfast was served in the restaurant at the inclusive rate.

Whilst there we visited Carnforth station which was the location for Brief Encounter and now has a visitors centre following this theme. Garstang might seem to be in the middle of nowhere, but is actually well placed for the Lakes, Blackpool and the less-visited County town, Lancaster - do not miss the Castle Tour (part of the castle is actually a working prison !) which includes the courts and old cells; it provides an amazing insight into the legal processes of earlier centuries !

All in all, we had an excellent stay. Whilst the Crofters is not at the top of the market, neither is the room rate - far from it ! ...and we considered it excellent value and would recommend it to anyone looking for good value, comfortable accommodation in the area.

A 50-something couple from Yorkshire.

Reviewed September 13, 2006

We were guest at a wedding and thought it would be nice to stay overnight. Wished we hadn't! Our room was so dark even with every light switched on we strugled to dress. Darkness did not cover up the fact the room need redecorating. We have never come accross a double bed like the one in our room, it was 16'' from the floor on one side and 24'' on the other. Not great for 2!! Bathroom in need of complete overhaul, suite did not match and the shower did not work. Reception staff polite, rest of staff need training.

  • Liked — plenty of parking
