Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Netherwood Hotel tried so hard yesterday to ruin my birthday. We wanted somewhere really nice to go for Sunday lunch to celebrate and came up with the idea of the Netherwood. We are lovers of Sunday Roasts, so I Googled “Netherwood Hotel Sunday Lunch”...and the very first result was a link to the hotel’s own website and the menu, which included a choice between beef, lamb and chicken. I booked, received a confirmation, and we drove up to Grange-over-Sands from Preston. The hotel looks beautiful from the road, full of “olde worlde charm” behind beautiful gardens. On arrival, we were surprised and disappointed to find the restaurant deserted. We were instead taken to a table in the bar, where there were a couple of other people. We ordered drinks, chatted, and picked up the menus, which offered sausage and mash, fish and chips, and a burger. Our local cafe offers better! The waitress assured us that she has worked there for 18 months and they have never served a roast. The duty manager was summoned, and her attitude was combative. It was my fault, because I must have been on a different hotel’s website. It was head office’s fault, because they control the website. And so on. She failed to own the problem. She was unapologetic. We left – without paying for our drinks – and found a very pleasant country pub/hotel that served a most enjoyable roast lunch. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Three cheers for the Plough at Lupton!More

This was our 2nd visit here and I would happily return and heartily recommend. Particularly if your family, like ours, includes a dog. This is as dog friendly as you could ask. The Bar manager had treats behind the bar and was very attentive to...Ralph, as was the resident member of staff who lit the fire in the lounge for us! A very traditional style old country house hotel with history and character. Bedrooms modern and totally clean and comfortable. Very welcoming and friendly reception staff. Ralph was only not allowed in the main restaurant but our table was set up in the bar area and we could order off the bar or restaurant menu. Breakfast was excellent. Dinner off the a la carte menu offered good choice and all we had was well cooked and well presented and was lovely, but this type of dinner, unlike the buffet breakfast, does not always suit the hearty appetite. Not a bad thing always! We took drinks outside on the terrace and Ralph was exercised on the extensive grassed area at the front. A most enjoyable family weekend.More

Wonderful menu with lovely options. The seabass was especially tasty and the lemon sauce that it was served in was delicious.

Ate in the restaurant with some friends, the menu looked good…a few options. I chose the scorched mackerel to start…well it came and was probably four mouthfuls of food, there was 3 slithers of mackerel…probably 2 inches long! Next course, lamb, which was tasty…the accompanying...vegetables were luke warm and again, not much of them! I did point out the vegetables were not hot, the waiter said he could go and reheat it…thoughts of it coming back microwaved put me off…so I declined this offer. Finished with sticky toffee, which was ok. All in all, I found the mea disappointing… expensive for not much food, which was a real shame.More

Allowed a booking for lunch, called the night before and confirmed it was a restaurant booking. Then said that we could RPO’s only sit at any of the 100 or so empty restaurant tables and must eat on a low bar table. Awful. Left without...eating. Shocking service and attitudeMore

Stopped for coffee on the terrace. Tables hadn't been cleared and it was past 11am. Finally found a member of staff to serve us. He was not exactly efficient. No apologies for the state of the table, or wiped. Had problems finding anyone to pay....Absence of staff very obviousMore

Great food, well cooked and presented. Refined but not posh portions. Large dining room - plenty of space for social distancing. Could have had some quiet background music for better ambience

not only was the location brilliant, they are able to offer such good service based on limited, yet amble menu choices. 2 or 3 courses and really filling - loved the pork, with hummus and Baganoush to start

For my parents Golden Wedding we booked a meal here. What can I say but it was a perfect meal and what made it even more special was the level of the service we received. The service could not be faulted. I would genuinely say...if you are nearby and are booking a special celebration this is the place to go.More

We arrived at about 6 pm for an early pre-concert bar meal, having confirmed on line that it was open for bar meals 12 to 8.30 - but it wasn't. Tripadvsor requires a restaurant rating but I'm not in a position to give one so...have to say: average - it may well be much better than that However the house, gardens, entrance hall and immediate environs were impressive and attractive - next time I would ring to check as I was disappointed not to stay. I has 3 stars; my companion had stayed in the past and found it pleasant.More
