We stayed here as 3 couples doing a walk from Leeds to Chorley, and the main reasons for our choice were it's location reasonably close to the canal, they allow dogs to stay and reviews of 'excellent breakfasts and friendly service'.
Well I can report that the canal is still in its original location, however we struggled to find the latter two attributes.
In fairness breakfast was okay, but no better. The ingredients were all 'cheap', and considering the price the hotel charges I would have expected much higher quality ( decent sausages and proper fruit juice would be a good start. )
What lets the hotel down the most is the decor - I doubt it's been modernised in 30 years. If that's your thing then great, you'll love it.
Our bathroom had a big hole in the bath panel, and the old-fashioned hairdryer made a racket, whilst cold air limped out. I'm afraid all 3 couples were disappointed.
