My husband and I stayed at the Preston Marriott for one evening on 3rd June.
Although there were a couple of hiccups we were delighted with our stay. The staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful, particularly Wael and Tarek.
The hotel is spotless and the food and drink we thought were quite reasonable for this standard of hotel. The hotel has a restaurant and a less formal lounge (as well as a cafe bar in the leisure centre) and although the restaurant and bar have slightly different menus, you can order food from either whilst dining in either.
We chose to eat in the outside seating area near the lounge as we were blessed with beautiful weather and were very impressed with the quality of food and the servce. Starters were £5-10 and a main course was £11-22.
The leisure centre was fab, excellent facilities in the changing rooms with fresh towels provided as well as powerful hairdryers and complimentary lockers with hangers for jackets. We used the pool (standard hotel pool, fairly shallow for tall swimmers but good for a dip), the spa pool, the sauna and the steam room. All were spotlessly clean and well maintained. A beautician is also located in the leisure centre as well as a cafe bar. A list of treatments for the spa would have been useful in the room as well as prices. The leisure centre was also quite difficult to navigate as once inside the signage wasn't very visible, however, the gentleman on reception was very helpful and gave directions.
The hotel is said to sit in 11 acres of grounds and it's certainly a picturesque spot deceptively close to the motorway, but still feeling like the countryside. Not much walking to be done in the hotel grounds, but a country park is just up the road for those who enjoy an outdoor stroll.
The rooms were very comfortable and we were upgraded to an executive room - I'd definitely consider upgrading if possible as the larger room size made a real difference to our stay. The standard room was lovely if compact, the exec room was at least an additional 50% bigger.
There are in-house movies (£7.10 per movie) as well as a mini-bar but annoyingly there was no price list for the mini-bar in our room.
The room service menu was very varied and the same prices as found in the restaurant or lounge, with an added £3.50 tray charge for room delivery. We splashed out and had breakfast delivered to our room in the morning - absolutely fab and although it costs around £33 for two it was a great treat. We had a full English as well as cereal, toast, croissant, juice, tea... we couldn't eat it all and it could be tailored just the way you liked it with a choice of how you like your eggs, milk etc. Great quality breakfast served piping hot.
Check-out time is a reasonable 12 noon and there is plenty of free parking on site.
We paid £75 for the night on a weekend special rate and would not hesitate to go back. We felt very welcome, were delighted with the service and the fantastic staff and our luck with the weather made our getaway complete.
Thanks to everyone who made our stay memorable, we hope to return soon.
