“Excellent”
Reviewed 16 July 2015

We come here often, we live local but even so have stayed over a few times as it is so nice you really feel like youve stepped into another little world when you are here.

The rooms are all lovely and modern, the staff are helpful and friendly and the food is amazing, also it is very reasonabley priced. Its a beautiful location just by the lancaster canal, and they have roof terraces for you to drink/dine we were last here on 3rd July and we spent all day sat on the roof terrace in the sun, we shared a ploughmans salad for lunch as it was so big there was more than enough for 2, and in the evening we dined in the restaurant. We also sat out on the restaurants roof terrace in the evening and you felt like you were abroad it was amazing.
The buffet breakfast is great too continental and english and its all lovely and fresh.
Great place, great atmosphere, I would definately recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: ask for a canal view, although all the rooms are nice

I decided me and my partner would stay here for our anniversary as I'd been here previously and enjoyed it. It didn't disappoint. The rooms are slightly dated and could use a lick of paint, but in fairness it adds to the quirkiness that is Guys Thatched Hamlet. We stayed on a Tuesday night, which worked out cheaper.

We ate out at Guy's Italian and had the 50/50 menu. The meals were delicious. We had Started, Main Course and Desert, but only had 1 drink (drinks aren't included in the 50/50 menu) and it came to £33.

We will be making it a yearly event for our anniversary and me and my mum come here yearly as well.

I definitely recommend Guys!!

Location beautiful, mostly very accommodating, can cater for most functions, lovely refurbed room so long as not near the giant extractor fan. Breakfast not included !!! But brilliant buffet breakfast available for a reeasonal price if you cannot wait until getting home. Other food a bit hit and miss, and some staff a bit hit and miss.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbed room away from the giant extractor fans. Not that l want one but they do smoking...

Bit of a quirky place. Unusual but quite relaxing. Rooms are large some have a spar bath in the main bedroom. King size beds are comfortable though the pillows were a little thin for my personal taste. Good restaurant reasonably priced food well presented and the fish platter for two was amazing. The main bar has a good selection of beers and again the bar meals are good. Really enjoyed the home made steak and Kidney pudding with chips. The sweets we good value too. Situated just north of Preston alongside the Lancaster Canal there is plenty of walking and Blackpool is just 11 miles away.

Very much enjoyed our visit to this quirky place. Cheese pie is more than worth the money!
Only downside is having to wait and wait and wait and wait for dessert, as it seems that the waiting staff cover the dessert station too and they're already running around like nutters.
They missed out on the extra sales there so I won't mark them down, 4 cornettos from the local shop did the trick!
