This hotel combines professionalism with a friendly service. The recent upgrade to the rooms and on ensuite facilities is most tasteful. Whilst the hotel is always busy the staff have always time to deal with my requirements.

Thank you for your kind review. We have thousands of lovely guests staying throughout the year, many of whom are regular stays, and it is always heartwarming to hear that our efforts are being noticed. I know that it is a real effort to take the time to praise, with sites being used for critical means all too often instead... More

The duty manager (a young lady) was very helpful and she was acting in many roles. Wifi is free throughout the hotel which is a bonus. The whole hotel is tired and could do with a good revamp and get rid of the awful carpet that runs throughout the whole hotel. Our room (Room 10) was clean but the television... More

Stayed at this hotel as it is close to family. Clean and comfortable and great location for visiting the Lakes and Lytham St Annes/Blackpool. Newly fitted bathroom and the room was surprisingly peaceful, considering the size of the hotel. Good atmosphere and food in the pub and the breakfast was excellent.

What Crofters lacks in facilities it makes up in the helpfulness of the staff and quality of food in the Tavern. The rooms are functional but need investment to match the Premier Inn chain which is in the same market space. A basic place to stopover when heading north.

Stayed here last weekend. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was VERY average. Staff friendly enough but not the most efficient. The outside seating area was dirty with uncleared ashtrays and cigarette ends all over the decking. NOT the best. Problem is if you need to stay in Garstang there is nowhere else.
