Can,t say much more than would have no hesitation staying here any time in the future. Location is excellent next to M65, bar and food on site are great and lots of secure parking. For a culinary change though, try one of the many Indian restaurants in nearby Darwen. I sampled 3 during a weeks stay on business and all were top class.
The hotel rooms were spacious and well appointed and spotlessly clean on arrival. This standard was maintained throughout the week and thanks for that goes to the excellent housekeeping department. I imagine the lady who did my room wouldn't be too sad to see me depart though. All those curries meant she had her work cut out every morning, when it came to cleaning the lavatory. I wish they left a loo brush in the bathroom as I'm not averse to cleaning the toilet after I've finished and it would have avoided the embarrassment of being in the room a couple of times when the maid comes to service it and you have to make polite conversation with a woman who has just had to scrub the toilet bowl clean, and she knows exactly who was responsible.

I can't imagine an economy hotel being able to offer anything more. We had an immaculate room, comfortable bed, just off the motorway- but no traffic noise, friendly staff, and all at a very reasonable price. Can't recomend it highly enough.

The receptionists were very welcoming, friendly and helful from the moment we walked through the door. The other staff in the restaurant followed on in the same way. Room was comfortable and clean. Lovely bed with extra pillows. Shower was spot on and the water power was the same no matter when used. Felt comfortable and at home.

Room Tip: End roooms quiet

Family do in Blackburn. Easily found.
Excellent family rooms, which allowed earlier access.
Restuarant attached but popular with locals so not also a table available.
Breakfasts no problem and eat all you like is available although you have to order it instead of helping yourself, so you tend not to be too greedy if your ordering it.
Often wonder what they would say if 10 sausages and 14 bacon was ordered !!!
Anyway hotel great value and so was the breakfast especially kids go free policy.
Staff was friendly and helpful.

For a quick business trip or visit to the family, this is ideal. We booked a room for 2 adults and a child and the room was perfect! It had a comfy double bed with a small separate room for the child. Good size bathroom and restaurant downstairs with a great kiddie play area.
