The Marriott Preston is located in an extensively enlarged country house on the edge of the city. It is in a great position on the motorway network for travel towards Blackpool or north towards the Lake District. However, its semi-rural position means that you do need a car to get anywhere.
My ground floor room was quite small but it had everything that could be needed - comfy bed, iron, coffee/tea, good tv, safe, full toiletries and tissues in the bathroom, etc.
The staff were helpful and friendly. The restaurant was okay and there is a separate bar that serves food too, plus room service. Breakfast was excellent, with a wide range.
Given its pleasant setting and road-friendly location, the hotel is popular for wedding parties at the weekend and as a stopover for coach tours. As a result, I found that it could become crowded at times, particularly in the bar/restaurant. Breakfast was the worst casualty of this and, on one of my four days, there was a long queue, stressed staff and slow replenishment of food. Its inevitable that such groups all descend on the breakfast room at the same time, so the hotel should perhaps think how their catering needs could be more adequately met.
