“Perfect country location but badly signposted”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Most things seemed very clean and tidy. The dining area badly needed a new carpet as it was very stained and the tables were sticky.

The staff were very kind and helpful. The food was good but small portions and rather expensive,so we dined next door from then onwards at the Fayre and Square restaurant which was excellent and full of people and good atmosphere unlike The Ibis which had about 2 customers.

We were not happy about the 3 families of gypsies using the disabled parking bays for their vehicles but nobody mentioned it to them.

The soap dispenser in the bathroom was very awkward to use and not much soap came out if at all but were were impressed with the double walk-in shower.

Room Tip: Better to stay on the south side in a room overlooking the car park, we found this quiet. Would als...

We chose to stay here to use as a base for Blackpool. The hotel is located about 25 minutes drive away from Blackpool. The hotel was clean. Our room (310) was fairly spacious with a car park view. The bathroom was clean and the shower was quite big. The bed was comfortable. The only problem I had was that their choice of TV channels was really bad, especially with the range of channels available nowadays (you only have a choice of about 8 channels here). There's plenty of parking available. The staff were helpful. I would definitely stay here if going to Blackpool again and would probably stay in another Ibis elsewhere too.

Room Tip: Easy access to Blackpool. If you don't want to stay in Blackpool itself, this hotel is at a perf...

My wife and I were looking for somewhere good value for a few days away which had decent disabled access. The Ibis Preston North has certainly given us exactly what we wanted.

The room was comfortable and the staff were all very helpful. We had a problem with the TV in the room and the maintenance man there was really persistent and helpful in trying to fix the problem, even staying late to make sure the problem was actually sorted out finally!

The food was reasonable quality, although it would have been nicer if there had been more choice for vegetarians.

This was our first experience of the Ibis brand, and on the strength of it, we will be trying some more.

My partner and I stayed here for one night over the weekend and the both of us enjoyed it very much. Having read the reviews on here previously I had asked for a room facing the car park and subsequently had no problems with noise. Next to the hotel is a cute pub that is handy if you are too tired to go into the town (like we were) and the food is surprisingly very tasty! The room (double) that we had was much bigger than I expected and the bathroom was lovely, with a walk in shower. We had extra pillows in our room and the bed was very comfortable to sleep in. The staff were a joy, very lovely ladies. The only thing I would say is it is a bit further out of town but the cab's were about £7-£8. Overall it was a very nice stay.

Stayed here on Friday night prior to competing at Reedyford show with the dog the next day. On arrival at about 9pm we were checked in and given our room key. When we got to the room, the window was open as wide as it would go but this didn't disguise the extremely strong smell
of vomit in the room. Went back to reception where check in staff quickly and efficiently moved us to another room, however, how anyone could think that room was acceptable to have guests in is beyond me. If the hotel had been full we would have been stuck three hours from home with no choice but to sleep in a room with the windows wide open on a cold night in October, and loud road noise from the motorway...As it was, the room we were moved to was basic but clean, and there was a good choice for breakfast the next day. Would I stay here again? Not worth the risk of rooms not being clean :( the initial bad impression ruined the stay for us.

Stopped of here for just the one night, perfectly placed. Spent the next few nights in a Premier Inn and I have to say the bed in the Ibis was by far the most comfortable. All the staff were attentive and friendly. The breakfast was good and overall I would say it was a great place to spend a night.
