I cannot believe I live almost on the doorstep and I haven't tried the food in here since the refurbishment began...... WOW! My impromptu Bar meal may sound like just a spicy chicken sandwich, but it was far more than that. It was a very tasty panini with a generous portion of salad, homemade coleslaw and sweet potato crisps. I...

The rooms at this hotel are currently being renovated. The rooms are really well furnished and the bathrooms are ace. The renovation work is not completed so the corridors and stairs areas are still looking a bit sad with some of the old furniture stored on the landings. Once it is finished i expect it could be given the full...

We arrived in Carnforth early evening on Saturday. A group of us, (3 women), had cycled along the Bay Cycle to find that our booked accommodation for the night was along way off our route. We called into The Station Hotel in the hope of finding a night's accommodation. Our first impressions were not particularly positive. The hotel looked a...

Visited today with my partner and two young children. We were greeted by one of the friendly owners and asked where we would like to sit for food, in the dining room or bar area (with room for the older child to play). They were very accommodating and made us feel very welcome even with a boisterous and slightly loud...

Wanted a one night stop over on the way back from Girvan and this was a lucky find. First off Carnforth is 5 minutes from the M6 and it has a petrol station too. The Station is a grand hotel from a bygone era and is benefiting from some serious but tasteful refurbishment. Our room was number 17 twin beds,...

This is the 2nd time staying in this hotel. The first being in December 2016 as it is not far from Capernwray Dive Centre. Despite being under renovation, my friends and I can't fault this place. The staff are amazing - Carol, Nigel, Callum (those are the names I remember)plus all the others we met. The food is fantastic -...

Last Wednesday, my sister, mother, a good friend and myself visited the station for afternoon tea and we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome They are having some alterations to the main entrance and restaurant so we were in the bar area, but this didn't matter. The room had a fire lit and was warm and inviting We...

We called in here on our way through Lancashire and back down to the Midlands. Firstly we were greeted by an extremely friendly and helpful young man behind the bar (what a delight to find these days!) We weren't expecting a lot from the food to be honest... how wrong could we be! The beef and Yorkshire pudding was amazing,...
