We stayed there 2 nights. Everything about our stay was great. The room had everything we needed. There was lots of space in our room. The bathroom was big and well designed. The facilities were great. Good free parking. The restaurant next door has free wifi. The hotel gives you 30mins free wifi per day.
Staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast deal was great.

A lovely clean, comfy and quiet room.
Plenty of parking - very easy for the M56.
Great value for money as ever, helpful reception and a good breakfast next door (tho' a few things needed topping up when we went in at 09.40, staff helped out immediately).

We stayed here on 12th July -there were 16 extended family members-we were attending a wedding celebration at nearby Mellor during the evening. My husband and I arrived following a journey from the midlands. It was a very hot day and we just wanted to get into our room and freshen up and chill before the rest of the family arrived. We checked in and the receptionist could not have been more pleasant or helpful, it was a pleasure to talk to her. She could not do enough for us. This was our first stay at a Premier Inn. We are well travelled and have stayed in many well known hotels world wide but have never received such a personal warm welcome. Our room had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean, bright and modern. Premier Inn have definitely got it right for a economical over night hotel stay, We made a cup of tea, kicked off our sandals and lay on the extremely comfy bed having a much needed rest before meeting up with our other family members. I must mention Tim, another receptionist who took over mid afternoon from the welcoming female receptionist. We enquired about getting taxis to the wedding venue and Tim was more than helpful organising a mini bus for us all. Thank You Tim, we really appreciated your help. We opted for the breakfast deal next door at the restaurant-can't fault that either- it was very good value and extremely tastey. We are really pleased we stayed at this Premier Inn. It was a very positive experience. Everyone we met who worked there were so sociable. We would definitely recommend staying here to anyone who needs accommodation in this vicinity. Well Done Premier Inn.

Room Tip: We stayed at the back of the hotel and found it extremely peaceful.

This is an excellent Premier Inn. The room was spacious, quiet and comfortable. The staff were friendly and courteous. The meals at dinner and breakfast were 1st class. The bath and shower were also spot on. Very handy for Blackburn Town Centre and the M65. Highly recommended.

Over the years I've stayed in several budget hotels similar to this hotel. This by far was the best. The rooms we're basic as expected but clean modern and very spacious. The bathroom was really nice and the built in shower gel and soap dispensers we're a nice touch. The staff we're all very polite and the food in the restaurant was better than other budget hotels. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel for a short stay.

My first impression was that the room was neat. Basic and functional. I would not say that it was Luxurious. The pillows and bed were clean and comfortable,
I didn't enjoy the shower because the output was not powerful enough.
I enjoyed my breakfast but I won't say it was the best.
For the room I booked I think it was a bit overpriced.
Probably book again with Premier if there is no better hotel for a business trip.

Having travelled from Whitstable in Kent and having no end of traffic jams and stoppages on our way to Scotland it was a welcome sight to see the turnoff for Blackburn and Darwen (M65). The hotel was easy to find with the route that I got on line. We were not disappointed, the staff were excellent and the restaurant was very very good, excellent service and good food. Our room including the bathroom and water pressure were excellent, and we had a good nights sleep before continuing our journey to the Premier Inn at Livingston.
