Pros: the staff were friendly and helpful Cons: the hotel rooms are badly in need of renovations, the windows are drafty, the internal doors didn’t close, the shower was little more than a dribble. The toilet was dirty. The rooms had the heating turned off in February, it was

This was our first visit to the Whitehall since we were married there 3 years ago. I regretted not leaving a review of the day and how wonderful it was- other than the heavy snow. Time passes quickly. Our family arrived just after 2pm and we found it difficult to find a

I have been looking at your hotel as a potential venue, however my concern seen by my partner to a recent reviews about poor service where of no great concerns given peoples differing opinions. However my one major area of concern is with your apparent substandard food hygiene rating as identified on ratings.food.gov.uk/business/en-GB/212113/Whitehall-Hotel-Darwen by the local council The site rates your establishment as a 2 – Improvement necessary at the date of inspection on the 03 August 2016 Area inspected by food safety officer Standards found Hygienic food handling - Hygienic handling of food including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage - Generally satisfactory Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building - Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building (including having appropriate layout, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control) to enable good food hygiene - Improvement necessary Management of food safety - System or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future. -Generally satisfactory What can you do as a potential visitor to alleviate my concerns of not becoming ill due to your poor food preparation standards especially around the Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building which was reported as “Improvement necessary”? Can you advise of why such a highly rated venue would achieve such a low score? Can you confirm what improvements you have made? Can you ensure your food preparation is of a standard rather than of a dodgy back street café or take-away?
Thank you for your question. At the time of the inspection we were undergoing structural work to the kitchen and there was issue with some of the working practice. Recommendations were made and not enforcements of which were completed along with the refurbishment work. The environmental officer returned recently (12.01.17) and scored the hotel 4/5. Please let us know in advance and we will arrange for you to view the documentation if you require. We are heartened with your opening statement and trust your concerns further alleviated with the answers of which followed. We thank them, for their constructive and positive feedback.

We believe we sell a quality product at a reasonable price in the environment in which it is offered. As is widely accepted, wine is subjective to palate and a good wine is one you enjoy.
