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.
