We have stayed here several times in the past more often in a family room with our son. On this occasion it was just my wife and I. We stayed in an executive double room on the ground floor, which we accessed beside the reception area. Exec room sounds more than it was - but certainly better than standard with nice cozy features).
Room was clean, quite nicely decorated and with furniture that wasnt modern but befitting of the room. The en suite was basic, functional and adequate - not the modern style one gets in a Holiday Inn style by any means. The room had tea making facilities, TV was ok when needed, and radiators were warm if required. The bed was soft and very comfortable. The room was also quiet (room 21) and we were overall comfortable. WIFI worked fine in the room too.
Full English breakfast was included in the price which was more than enough for a normal person - especially as cereals and fruit juice were available also. Service was good and very friendly. Dining room was nice and cosy and functional. Breakfast timing could have been a bit later at weekend (served till 9.30) but not too inconvenient and perhaps a bit picky of me to say that.
The bar area was okay and staff very friendly too - and very personable. Indeed staff overall were polite and as there werent too many of them they did all the tasks between them. Always there when you needed them too. No complaints.
The hotel is in a quiet location but close to the Burnley town centre and easily accessible to motorway etc. Burnley itself doesnt thave too many hotels worth going into and whilst we have often compared Rosehill to others in the area it is unlikely we will ever go anywhere else. The modern Holiday Inn nearby is more expensive, very unlikely to be as personal, and certainly will not provide the style of a family hotel. Other hotels are nowhere near as good either in my opinion - notwithstanding a bit of TLC wouldnt go amiss here including perhaps the car park area beyond the entrance to the hotel always looks a bit scruffy.
In summary, for the £55 per night we paid (on offer) we were very happy with what we received in return. Indeed we have never been disappointed and will certainly return. It is a 3 star accommodation - so if you prefer 4 or 5 star luxury facilities in a sterile hotel then dont go here. Set reasonable expectations taking into account the historical and cozy nature of the building and you wont be disappointed.
