Went her for business - great food and great service. Would really recommend this place if you're staying nearby. Definitely beats the Travelodge down the road. Dinner was good and breakfast was better. The rooms and baths and TVs and the beds were comfy. Nice bar area too.

Absolutely fantastic hotel with friendly staff and superb food at good prices, the booze menu is fairly extensive too! From the main road in Darwen you go up a windy hill and once at Astley Bank you really could be anywhere it is so lovely and peaceful.

The Astley Bank was the venue for a colleague s wedding. I booked a double room for an overnight stay. The room was comfortable, clean and quite spacious. We had a comfortable stay and found the staff very pleasant and professional. We would stay again and sample the lunch or afternoon menu as this has been recommended.

While photographing a wedding at Astley Bank Hotel the staff were friendly and ever so helpful and supportive nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The grounds are beautiful with quite a few romantic areas for photo opportunities. I'll look forward to photographing at this venue again.

We stayed for one night. The room was standard and very comfortable. The bed was great and the bathroom large and freshly done. The grounds day are very well kept and the ambiance of the hotel friendly. The evening meal was a really pleasant surprise. Excellent food presented in a modern manner with lots of taste. Breakfast was also perfect....

Stayed here twice now, staff are very helpful and friendly, location is in a nice quiet set of gardens off the main road. Rooms are clean and well maintained. This is a popular place for weddings, make sure you stay away from the function room if you are there at the weekend.
