This review was given by the wife of the last review after her husband called us at 7.25 in the morning to say he was annoyed that we had responded to his review. He called on the Sunday shouting at my daughter who said the owners were out until late. When I rang him back at a reasonable hour when... More

My wife and I wanted a relaxing romantic night away. We expected views of the river from our room which is not the case. Arrived at 4pm, greeted by a young man who basically opened the door to our room and said he would be back soon with fresh milk and breakfast menus for us to complete. After 30 minutes... More

We phoned and booked six weeks in advance of our one night stay, supplying our card details. However, it appears that when they processed it it failed to go through so the next day the owner phoned and asked for the card details again. We paid with a different card.

We booked this hotel through Late rooms as part of my husband's birthday celebrations but were really disappointed with our stay. It definitely wasn't the tranquil, relaxing break the owners suggested we would experience. On arrival the water was not hot enough for a bath & we reported this straightaway to be told it would be fixed shortly. We couldn't... More

“We stayed I. The rubble suite the larger of the two, and in my mind the one with a better view.”

“Lovely views from the Ribble Suite and it has a large shower. The other room has a roll top bath/shower I believe.”
  • The other leather settee to watch the flat screen TV or look out of the patio windows.
  • A large, very light bathroom due to velux roof window. Wetroom shower area.
  • One relaxation area. Leather settee and the dining table.
  • The lovely four poster bed and the en-suite bathroom and lounge area beyond.
