Stopped here with my family august 2016. Clean modern rooms with good wifi for my kids. More upmarket with an awesome view. Staff were curtious and helpful. Most of all my children enjoyed it. A short drive into Fleetwood and you can get a family ticket on the trams which lasts all day. We went in to Blackpool and enjoyed...

Ate at the Shard on New Year's Eve and had a fantastic meal. The whole evening was first class and made extra special with nice touches such as prosecco at midnight. We have eaten here before but stopped going as the management seemed somewhat indifferent to customers and the whole place lacked atmosphere. However, since the new manager has been...

We had a lovely stay between Christmas and new year 2016. The room (20) was clean, well presented and spacious with a comfy but firm bed and a sofa. The ensuite bathroom was also clean and modern with a good sized shower cubicle. All of the staff were pleasant and helpful and the bar and restaurant area had a relaxed...

Had a really nice dinner on the evening, nice pub food and reasonably priced. Choice of drinks at the bar is good, view of the estuary is great. Only disappointment is the room. No real sense of comfort from the decor in the room (laminate floor made it look like a student halls room in my opinion) which I would...

A beautiful position situated alongside the River Wyre.. The bar and restaurant facilities are excellent. Service was superb and the menu choice was very good. My wife ordered salmon which, unfortunately, came luke warm. Not a big problem but indicated that maybe the kitchen was the let down of this lovely establishment, I ordered the steak pudding and I would...

We stayed at this hotel whilst attending a wedding at a nearby venue. We arrived earlier than our check-in time but the staff were very accommodating and let us put our bags in the room. The room itself was magnificent. Very modern and immaculately clean with a good sized bathroom. The room overlooked the estuary which was a fantastic view....

Stayed overnight as a group of 2 couples. We didn't have an evening meal here as we were meeting friends elsewhere. The rooms were quite small but perfectly adequate for a short stay, the beds were comfortable and had everything you need including tea & coffee making facilities.

We stayed here, while we were attending a wedding a short while away. The room was comfortable and clean, Breakfast was lovely, there was plenty of choice. The staff that were on breakfast were a little slow and could have had better costumer service. All in all an enjoyable stay and will return in the future.
