This was a Wedding Anniversary treat, a mid week one night treat gourmet dinner bed and breakfast in a "superior double" room. It was smashing and more than lived up to our expectations. The staff were all excellent and attentive to our needs, the food wonderful, the wine great, the breakfast super, the room and ensuite bathroom first class. There really is not a solitary thing to criticise, which is almost annoying! Go there and enjoy!

We stayed here for the second time and we're not disappointed.
After arriving early afternoon we took advantage of the country walls before returning for tea and biscuits on the outside terrace (the mini Eccles cakes were a firm favourite!)
Room was ready and spotless. Only gripe here (although not enough to reduce the rating) was that on a previous visit the view from the room was spectacular over gardens and fields to the distant hills, this time however we looked out into the building site of the impending extension. Not a major problem but perhaps should be mentioned, and possible price reflected, at the booking stage.
We chose the Gourmet menu with matching wines and we were not disappointed. Absolutely exquisite. Breakfast also did not fail to delight. The service throughout our stay was second to none with the staff being friendly, efficient and professional. On checkout we wandered the kitchen garden and had a lovely chat with the very friendly gardener.
Can not recommend this experience highly enough.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask what the view from the room is like. Ask for one looking over the garden not overlook...

My partner booked a gourmet meal and overnight stay at this exquisite hotel/restaurant to celebrate my birthday. The staff is first class and the restaurant lived up to the great expectations we had from previous reviews and recommendation from friends. On arrival we were a bit disappointed that our room overlooked all the building work going on (they're building 8 new rooms) and we were immediately offered a different room - not only that, we were shown 3 gorgeous rooms and allowed to choose the one we wanted, and the deputy manager gave us a complimentary glass of champagne to say sorry for any inconvenience. The meal was wonderful and offered a true fine-dining experience. We had some specific dietary requirements and all the courses catered to our needs. The decor and ambience was elegant and very welcoming.
We have no hesitation whatsoever recommending this hotel/restaurant and will definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly decorated room ... They are fabulous!

A sneaky overnight stay for our Anniversary! It was wonderful, warm and speedy welcome, straight up to the room. Everything you could wish for, clean, well decorated, great view. Champers outside on the newly built veranda, then pre dinner drinks in the bar. The restaurant was busy but the service was not compromised in anyway. Food was amazing we had the full taster menu with the wine flight and it was all perfect! We are big foodies, been to some great restaurants but I really loved it here and we will be back.

My wife booked a surprise stay at Northcote along with a gourmet meal for our silver wedding anniversary. We had a fantastic time.

We stayed in room 19, one of the newly built bedrooms (see photos). We always get a great greeting whenever we stay here and this time was no exception. Luke looked after us really well. I always love the extra touches; complimentary soft drinks in the fridge, lovely biscuits to have with tea or coffee and a small bottle of real milk. There's also a blu ray DVD player and a Bose radio and CD player.

The bathroom had both a separate bath and a shower cubicle. The bath even had a small shower head so it's easy to wash your hair.

We had a walk out into the kitchen garden and saw the fresh produce they grow including artichokes, celery, sweet corn, grapes and more. It was great to sit on the new terrace and have some pre-dinner cocktails.

The five course gourmet menu prepared by Lisa Allen and her staff was wonderful so tasty with some fantastic taste combinations. The waiting staff are so professional, but also friendly and helpful. Its always a sign of a great place when you see the same staff as on a previous visit (no high turnover of staff here). Especial mention to Adam, Juliette and Tomas.

Breakfast was delicious, plenty of choice and freshly cooked. Again wonderful, friendly staff.

Its always a real delight to stay here.

I had a brief one night stay here in July 2014 (room 19). The room was large, with an excellent modern walk-in shower, desk and chairs. Bedside lighting was via one of those excellent flexible spotlights, and the bed was comfortable. Wifi was fine, and there were plenty of electrical sockets at desk level. The restaurant has a Michelin star and is excellent, staff friendly. There is a pretty garden terrace looking out over the Ribble valley.
