We stayed here for 1 night after a Wedding held in the hotel. The room was a good size and the bed was big with good plumped pillows. The room had a strong smell of gloss paint when we went in, on inspection all the wood work was tacky to touch( obviously recently painted) The smell was quite strong as...

This hotel is set in the country area of Preston and a 10 minutes drive from the motorway. On arrival we were met by some really pleasant staff, who confirmed our rooms were ready. Unfortunately I have never felt so cold in a hotel. The rooms were freezing cold. We were given an electric fan heater for three of the...

Place is modern, room is smallish for a double room and desk is small but room neat clean with a good en-suite with walk in shower. Bar service friendly and the food is good. Buffet breakfast offers a good choice for the start of the day.

We have stayed here before and on both occasions found the rooms and service very acceptable. However there has been some slippage between our visits.
