I have recently stayed at this hotel with family members and cannot praise it highly enough. Lovely clean rooms, very good food and very helpful staff. We were attending a wedding locally and the hotel was in just the right location. Nothing was too much trouble. We asked to book a taxi to take us to our wedding venue and bring us back and this was done promptly and efficiently. The restaurant staff were welcoming and the food was extremely good with a great selection for starters and main courses. We all had a smoked salmon and king prawn salad which had so much salmon it was not possible to finish it. We also had parmesan and parsley frites which were so tasty. The wine was very good and my step-son thoroughly enjoyed the real ale. Sitting outside drinking coffee and having a digestif was very pleasant and the weather was kind to us. The river view was magic and we saw many seabirds and other bird life including many lapwings and a heron.
Breakfasts were extremely good and it was possible to have whatever combination of eggs, bacon, sausage etcetera you wanted. There were also kippers and haddock with poached eggs - yummy.
The hotel was within easy reach of the Forest of Bowland and also Blackpool, Fleetwood and Morecambe. We went to Beacon Fells which was about 45 minutes away and also to Clitheroe Castle which was worth a visit especially if you have children.
Would happily return. Thank you so much Jenny Lund
