We booked the Marriott Preston for a birthday long weekend. We checked in at 3 and headed straight for the leasure centre where the staff were friendly, there is a good size pool , 2 hot tubs, sauna and steam room all which are clean and well presented. The leisure centre also has a poolside bar , hairdressers and spa.
Our room was in the old part of the hotel and appeared recently reburbished with immaculate decor and bedding, the room was quiet and restful.
Breakfast was up to the usual Marriott standard and the only negative being that someone saw fit to arrange the tables in a long 'works canteen' formation so that paying guests had to be squashed in with some conference delegates ( not appreciated when youve paid £££'s for a special stay).
We are not fans of the Marriott evening menu's (expensive and old fashioned) so chose to eat out, this uneathed a real star in the Gate of Bengal, a really good quality Indian restaurant just up the road.
A special mention is deserved for Alex, the Marriott Concierge who really does go that extra mile for the guests with a lovely manner.
To sum up this is a quality hotel with a nice ambience for de-stressing.More
