what a rip off...food served cold on dirty plates...scruffy waitresses trying to serve insipid half cups of 'coffee' that looked like dishwater and tasted even worse and tried to put sneakily on the 'tab' 2 pints estrella nearly a tenner

Inflated bar prices and insufficient staff. £2.50 for half a Carling!!! More expensive than Estrella which was also overpriced. Another example of greed at an otherwise pleasant venue. I ended up spending a lot less as a result.

Really helpful and friendly staff. Clean, good sized bedrooms which have an iron, hair dryer, soap, shampoos, tea, coffee and biscuits! Delicious breakfast!! Great range of choices, something for everyone. Would recommend. Darwen has plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy.

The front door closes at 11pm mid week, at the weekend it is dependant on if we have a wedding, what date is it you are looking at?

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?

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.
