    « A Wedding Guest Review »

    We stayed at this hotel as part of a wedding party. We were quite a large family group with six adults, two children and an infant. From our observations and experience the wedding was well organised and the staff appeared really helpful. From our point of view we had good accommodation and the rooms were clean and tidy although some are looking a little dated. The food was very good and the bar prices are reasonable although wine - as in most places - was very expensive. The place is of course geared towards Golf too although that never interfered with our event. This gave us the advantage, because the remoteness means it is much safer for younger children as there is no traffic apart from the car park. The car park is quite large and can accommodate large numbers of vehicles. The design of the building also means that the accommodation is away from the main function rooms which gives you some privacy. Note we had a very good time, we had little to worry us and would probably stay here again.

    « Our Wedding day »

    Myself and my husband had our wedding reception here on the 16th July 2016. From the very first meeting to the day after the wedding when we left we could not have been happier with the service provided. Nothing was too much when asked for. The staff went above and beyond for us from sorting out an incident with our wedding cake delivery to helping me be able to breath again in my corset dress!! We are so glad we chose here for our venue. Thank you to Anne, Wendy, James and Chris and all the staff who were there on the day from kerry and Ian

    « Wedding - Nov 2016 »

    As the Groom I can honestly say the staff are the nicest & most helpful people you'll ever meet. Over the 11 months planning prior to the wedding they were exceptional and always made time for us to come in to chat about our plans,or when we changed our plans it was never too much hassle to accommodate us, and any request we had they always looked into the possibilities rather than just saying no or it's too hard etc. On the wedding day itself it felt like I knew the staff personally and they guided us through the day with no issues whatsoever and once again any little request we made or our guests made they were straight on it to try and resolve or assist. The venue itself was lovely and very clean and comfortable and had a warm feel to it and the food throughout the weekend was perfect. Without hesitation I would recommend this hotel for your wedding and I would like to thank Chris, Anne and all the team (and I mean ALL the team) at Garstang for their truly amazing service and in helping make our day a memorable one. Jon & Gemma.

    The weather was great and the golf course played really well. Good condition and enjoyable golf. Tony in the shop is full of knowledge about the course and very friendly. Prior to playing I had a full breakfast which was good. The staff are all friendly and the place is really nice and clean. I enquired about staying and the hotel looks really good as well. Be back for a stay over & golf . Steve b

    I booked a room at Garstang Country Club hotel because I was attending a meeting the next day in tis hotel. The decor was a bit dated but the room was very spacious and the bd was very comfortable. The decor of the restaurant was quite boring but the service and food were great. When I m in the area I would stay in this hotel again.

    « Re-visit »

    We use this hotel to take a break on our journey south from Aberdeen. It is ideal for use as we are avid golfers and this hotel fits the bill. We were down last March and noticed an improvement this time. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We played golf 3 times during our stay and despite the weather the course was kept open by what we observed were a very diligent green staff. I would like personally to thank them as we enjoyed our golf and the course was in good condition despite the weather. The golf offer is one that we would recommend (for golfers) and will stay again, Thank you Garstang

    « Delightful stay with wonderful breakfast »

    Stayed for 2n. Lovely hotel in great location with peaceful views Pros Clean and tidy hotel Breakfast plentiful no delicious and the restaurant staff wonderfully welcoming All staff came across well presented and friendly General toilets pristine Cons Family of four room- put up beds made room feel squashed so not sure if the family rooms should be in bigger double rooms Tip to visitors: Residents can use the YMCA swimming pool in Garstang apparently. Do visit the charming market town of Garstang Tip to managers Family rooms where 4 are staying should have 4 bath towels and more than 1 toilet roll Would we visit again? If we are in the area then we would stay here again.

    « Thank you for our amazing wedding! »

    I really don't know where to start but just wanted to say thank you to all the staff at garstang golf club for hosting an amazing wedding day for us. They really couldn't do enough for us, the day ran absolutely perfectly and the rooms were so beautifully decorated. The grounds outside gave us the opportunity for some gorgeous pictures too. All of our guests have commented on what a wonderful time they had and how beautiful and elegant the venue was & how fantastic the meal was. We had 120 guests for a sit down meal and it was all spot on and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The bridal suite is absolutely lovely too. Thank you very much to everyone and especially to Wendy who did so much to make the day perfect. If you are thinking of having your wedding here I would highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed! Thanks again, Victoria & Lisa

    « 3rd time - OK if a tad remote »

    Best Western hotels can be hit or miss. This one largely ticks the appropriate boxes. What it is not.....it is not a hotel with lots of other things around it. This is a golf club with rooms attached. So if you want to eat or drink elsewhere then a taxi or your own transport will be needed. The rooms are pretty basic and old fashioned. No air con and a single heater in your room - so temperature control is a challenge. There is good wifi throughout (free). The bar/restaurant/breakfast area has (unfortunately) the look and feel of a cafe but the staff are all pleasant and attentive. That area does tend to get a bunch of local people at night - again, its a local golf club. It is a decent enough place.

    « Staff were fantastic »

    I'm not normally someone who leaves reviews, but after how helpful practical and altogether brilliant two staff members were last night at this hotel, I wanted to acknowledge our thanks. We have two children 5 and under and had a worst nightmare moment last night when our eldest was 'out of the blue' sick in his sleep at 11.30pm. My husband went to reception for help and Jeff firstly came along, his first thought being did our son need a glass of water and not what a mess! He quickly asked what we needed and shortly after his colleague John appeared with a replacement folding bed, clean bedding etc for our son. Both Jeff and John were very kind in reassuring us that this was no problem and they were happy to help with whatever they could. On a different note we find the room to be clean comfortable and well equipped for us and our children. Breakfast was also fantastic wonderful range of quality food. Would highly recommend to other families.

    « Lovely experience :) »

    I booked this last-minute on one of the bucket-shop sites having been cancelled by the hotel we had booked at at very short notice. Availability in the area was scarce - not sure what had been going on in the area? The hotels is fab, easy to find, plenty of parking, the staff were great, the room was lovely and the breakfast was really good. We will definitely stay here again and are looking at booking for Christmas (it's that good). Book with confidence and enjoy :).

    Another great stay at the Golf Club, relaxing and great service, can never fault this, nothing is too much trouble for the staff, comfy big beds, I suffer with back issues and never wake in any discomfort when staying here. Great facilities in room tea/coffee/hot choc! large wardrobe and draw space, rooms airy and iron and board in room also great fast Wi-Fi... We visited the Lake District which only took us 40mins from the Hotel, but plenty to see in the surrounding area of Garstang

    « Pleasant Experience »

    I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks, once working nights and once on days. Usually we have trouble whilst working nights but the great staff here turned their routines around to make up the rooms while we were at work thus letting us get to sleep during the day. The restaurant staff were great and looked after us to a very high standard. I can't wait to go again and would be happy to recommend this hotel to anyone.

    My husband and I had the most amazing wedding at this hotel on Friday 16th September thanks to the beautiful surroundings and the hard work and dedication of the staff . Nothing was too much trouble and they went above and beyond the call of duty to make our day special. The assistant manager in particular deserves a special thank you as she was such a lovely person and so very helpful :) Our wedding day surpassed all expectations and for this we will forever be grateful to all at the hotel.

    « Most Enjoyable »

    We have just returned from an enjoyable break at this Hotel which is situated on the edge of a Golf Course, even if you are not a Golfer you can certainly enjoy & appreciate the views across the course - so relaxing. We found the Staff exceptional - most helpful and friendly (Especially Anne,Grace,Matt and Gemma) we were looked after very well ! The rooms are in need of an update, but are clean and tidy and have all you need. We found the Meals very good, the choice of food on an Evening was excellent and all cooked to order ! Fish & Chips 10/10 & Steak & Ale Pie 10/10 ! We loved the 'Make your own 'Museli' at Breakfast - a great idea ! The Fresh fruit salad was lovely and enjoyed having the fried eggs cooked to order (Instead of sitting for several minutes in a tray) All in all Breakfast was great ! Thankyou to Everyone for making our stay so enjoyable

    Attended a wedding reception at Garstang country Hotel and I was very impressed. Well managed, good polite staff and very good food. Thoroughly enjoyed the day. We stayed over and found a very nice clean room with all you need. Nothing flash but warm clean and well appointed with all you need...breakfast was ample with good variety of choice in a very relaxed atmosphere. Well done to all involved.

    « Not enough staff/customer service training »

    We stayed here for one night as a stop over on the way to Scotland. The hotel is dated and to that end the hotel room was stiflingly hot as someone had left the towel rail on and that meant by the time of our arrival at 9.30pm it was so hot. We went to the bar for a drink and only one staff member was serving despite a group of three staff standing at the other end of the bar. It just meant it took a lot longer than it should have. Complete lack of atmosphere in the bar area which is mostly upright chairs and dated sofas. The factor that really lets the hotel down though is the lack of staff. Breakfast was shambolic with a queue of 8-10 people all waiting for eggs (some up to 15 minutes). We had to ask for our hot drinks three times before someone brought them over. Every single item we needed we had to ask for (no plates left, no bowls left, no glasses left, no butter left....) and every time a staff member would come back with an individual item meaning that the next person then had to also ask. Although most of the team seemed to be rushed off their feet trying to help, there is clearly a lack of customer service training or any understanding of how to manage a crowd. On check out we had to wait 5 minutes for anyone to come to the desk. As there was no bell we were shouting to try and find someone. Eventually someone appeared, she had clearly been to the kitchen to get a hot drink, and didn't apologise.

    Weather kind, so venue benefitted! Drinks prices not usual wedding venue extortion! Staff good! Pate starter fine, "roast" beef OK, YP good, cauli cheese great (grate?), plenty enough to eat, cheese option sufficient. Staff worked well...big day for key players!!! Rooms good! Shame ours was over "smokers" & taxi waiters din, but a one-off! Shower like an ice rink! Breakfast fine... Enjoyed our time there! Little really that could be improved!

    Stayed at this hotel for two nights to attend a wedding which was being held at the venue. The room was comfortable and met our needs. Lovely terrace area that we sat in for the afternoon. Restaurant meal in the evening was lovely. Breakfast the following morning was great, full buffet spread and very good quality. Staff all great and very helpful. Wedding was absolutely fabulous! I personally had an issue with having to show a slip of paper every time I went to the bar, I found this inconvenient and would prefer to show my room card just remember to carry the slip of paper with you in an easily excessible place, not at the bottom of your baby's nappy bag like i did! The location to the food to the staff was absolutely fabulous and a great place to base yourself if you are visiting the area, would highly recommend!

    « Good value but must try harder »

    Stayed on a good value deal for accommodation,dinner an breakfast, and a round of golf. Overall very good value for money. The golf course is okay but not as good as it should be, some quite boring greens with no bunkers, poor quality bunkers, but also a good driving range and some quite interesting holes. The room was excellent for the price and the staff all very good. The bar and lounge need some thought, very poor range of spirits, and not very inviting places to sit. The staff however are great, especially Terri Anne, very pleasant and helpful. Bar food is of good pub grub quality.

    « Not what I expected »

    We used this hotel as an overnight to break a long trip, we should have gone elsewhere. On check in there was no one at reception. We waited 5 minutes before someone appeared and did not even acknowldge that we were kept waiting and felt we were inconveniencing the person checking us in, we should have taken the hint and left then. It was a Saturday evening and expected the hotel to have some sort of function on which it did and this was ok as they had given us a room that was not near the function room, great. We then headed for dinner into a bar area that should be in an Ibis hotel, not a best westeen with built in buffet area on show. There was also no table service for food so you had to order food at the bar with no table number which was interested on explain where you sat. On saying this, although the food was basic, it was very tasty and we enjoyed our meal. The main reason for the poor rating was the rooms and lack of heating control. I am happy for the weather to be hot and understand the building was built pre- air conditioning but if you run a hotel and know you have a hot hotel then you should be able to supply every room with a fan.......this hotel could not. We called down to ask for one and the response we got from the gent on reception was 'if I can find one I will bring it up'. After waiting 45 minutes..... Time not being 11.45pm we called back down and there was no answer so presumed there was no fan coming. We then had to open the window and leave the curtains slightly open to allow air in, this did work. However, the wedding guests from the function were obviously smoking at the front door and were very loud and speaking very obusively on occasion which persisted on and off till 2am. Not a good night sleep! Breakfast was a challenge with little sleep. It was basic but good. I did comment on check out but the receptionist was too interested in checking everyone out.

    « Excellent hotel and golf course. »

    Stayed one night with my dad (19th July) as part of a golf package. This has been the 3rd year in a row that we have stayed there, and once again we found the hotel and golf course to be absolutely excellent. The hotel staff are always very polite and are as helpful as possible, customer care is very very good. The food on offer is delicious and presentation is perfect. We found the golf course to be in fantastic condition too. It always has been previously but this year it seems to be even better. It is a real credit to all the ground staff. We will be there again in a few weeks. Can't recommend it highly enough!! 5 Stars!! ***** G. Skinner

    « Good business stay over »

    Booked for work purposes and the fact that it has a golf driving range. Sadly I didn't have time to play the course, but did use the range evening and morning. Huge car park. Check in was easy, my room very pleasant. The window opened for fresh air. The washroom facilities were great. Nice big towels and gallons of hot water. Wi-Fi worked perfectly. Bed comfortable too. Evening meal was very tasty. Steak a little chewy but the veg and salad were excellent. Few nice cool scoops of Becks too. After a decent nights sleep, I knocked 100 balls on the driving range (opens at 8am) and then had breakfast, which was pretty good for self service. Not silly money. Out in a quiet peaceful area. No hustle and bustle. Easy to get onto the M6 and carry on either North or South. Well recommended.

    « Wedding 2nd July. »

    From booking this hotel 18 months ago for my daughters wedding, to checking out the day after the wedding, I can honestly not fault a thing. It is impossible to name everyone involved as all the staff went out of the way to make this a special weekend. But a few people deserve a special mention. Wendy and Chris for planning. They know what works but also accommodated our personal touches. Scott on reception amazed our guests as somehow managed to call everyone by the correct name all weekend. Matt on the bar deserved a medal 32 adults and 8 children from 7months to 7 years all wanted to eat and watch the football on the Friday night. Not an issue we soon had a room of our own set up and had excellent food and service all night. Matt continued to get compliments from guests throughout the weekend. Ann. What a star. The wedding day was run like clockwork with a very personal touch. She sorted out so much for us even helping with the brides dress. The wedding breakfast was faultless and James kept us all in order. I can only thank the whole team for such a memorable weekend. We only got favourable comments from all our guests with some planning to return for weekend breaks. Thanks from a very grateful mother of the bride.

    Stayed only for one night whilst we completed a charity golf event. The hotel couldn't do enough for us. We were staying over during our 6 courses in 6 counties charity golf, raising funds for powered wheelchairs for children. The hotel kindly donated our rooms and evening meal and even made us a flask of coffee for our 3-30am start on their golf course. Beautiful hotel great food and rooms and the golf course was in great condition, I will definitely be returning with a group of friends and repay their kindness.

    « Clean and professional. »

    Lovely hotel in a lovely setting. Staff are very professional and efficient. Ample parking and very quiet. Rooms Up to the standard you would expect from a best western hotel, clean and comfortable. Bar/ restaurant , if your looking for a quiet drink and meal this is the place for you. Nothing much happens and the food is again typical of a large hotel. If that's what you like then this is perfect. Beautiful views from the bar across the golf course. Stunning.

    « Alan Partridge »

    About 10 years ago, I read a book called "How to be Brilliant". It had a very long chapter on how being "good" isn't enough if you're a hotel because expectations are so high. It's not enough to have a comfy bed, a bath, towels, breakfast. They are all expectations. The analogy was that it's not good enough to be "good" in business either. The Best Western in Garstang is good. By saying "good" I do mean "just good" and "not brilliant". There is nothing especially wrong to get really worked up about. The room was big, the bed was big (but one of those two single beds pushed together to pretend to be one which is always a compromise and never as good as a smaller "real" double bed.) The curtains are dark but drab and had come off the end setting so left a gap at the edge. The bathroom is ok, nothing special but the water is hot and the pressure is good. The WiFi was brilliant but you'd never have known that from the website. Good signal in my room but only promised in public areas online, so presumably it's variable. The breakfast is adequate (the fresh fruit option was a bit embarrassing to be honest for a modern hotel.) The bed was made up with a winter duvet in summer which was odd even for Lancashire. All in all it was "good" but not "wow". For a business trip. Fine. What I'd change: Buy new towels, the ones you have are very much past their best. Make up the beds for the season. Give the carpets a good clean so everywhere smells super fresh. Give a decent choice of fruit at breakfast, e.g. sliced watermelon, pineapple and berries, at this time of the year, that's cheap to do. Put something in the room to make your guests smile. I read somewhere on here about a guest getting fresh milk, "great" I thought but I didn't get that perk which was a bit disappointing. Some hotels leave a home baked biscuit. Cheap to do but makes your guests think "wow!" All in all as my review title suggests, a touch of the Alan Partridges. I have been to 101 hotels like this and many worse. Will I remember it in a month's time? No. Not even slightly. To be remembered and appreciated for business travellers you need to be a step different. Business travel is dull. Make us feel a little loved and we will be back, otherwise what is there to tempt us away from the decent chain hotels like Premier Inn and Ibis? Would I stay again? Maybe in winter if I remember it exists. The place (and duvet) were so warm with ridiculously hot and high pressure water for the bath I'd probably do so but in summer, no, I wouldn't rush back, I'd try somewhere else in the area because I hate being bored.

    « Very disappointing !! »

    We took my 83 year old Dad here for his birthday lunch. The surroundings and decor are lovely. There was a venue on for a large party who seemed to be enjoying themselves. I had pre booked a table for four..which surprised the staff. We were shown into a lovely dining room overlooking the golf course. We all ordered the Sunday roast. It was heated up pre cooked food which had seen better days.!! When asked for some mustard..a jar of Colmans was 'plonked' on the table. My Dad has a sweet tooth..so he ordered Apple pie as dessert..this was a limp piece of soggy fruitless pie with custard. This was not to the standards of which we had been led to expect. My Dad had been driven all the way from Kendal for his supposed birthday lunch ....he left very disappointed as it had been so awful. We have now moved into the area and the Golf Club is on our doorstep..and my partner is a keen golfer..but we've rejected offers of further meals as it was so appalling last time.

    « The bar »

    Last year, after a regular game of golf on the excellent 18 hole course, I purchased an egg sandwich that was advertised as coming with "crisps". On arrival, the small container of crisps contained salt and vinegar crisps. I requested that they be changed to plain, as I have a dislike of flavoured crisps. I was informed by the waiter that the only alternative allowed was black pudding flavoured. As I had paid for an expensive sandwich, and a latte, I asked to speak to the manager. He informed me that I could not have plain crisps as he would have to open a bag, and for some reason he was not able to do this. Over the past fifteen years, my family and friends have spent literally thousands of pounds at the hotel on food. This breach of goodwill left me stunned. Needless to say I will not be buying any more food there, unless and until I receive a complimentary bag of plain crisps, a latte, and a personal apology. To date they are out of pocket to he tune of over one hundred pounds worth of sandwiches.

    I got married here on the 27/5/16. All I can say is perfect. Everything was amazing. The whole day went so smoothly. The staff are friendly and bend over backwards to make sure everything you want or need is done. The food was perfect. The grounds are stunning. We couldn't of asked for a more perfect day. The only down side was that the day went to quickly. The rooms are comfy and clean. The bridal suit is gorgeous. I can't pick any faults. Thank you.

    We had the pleasure of attending a wedding here at the weekend, and as far as we could see everything went like clockwork.. The room where the ceremony was held was just right and had a lovely feel too it.The gardens and golf course made a great backdrop to the photos. Wedding breakfast was really good, the food cooked just right. We had a pleasant hour or two sitting outside after the meal before the evening got under way with a bottle of wine and coffees. will hopefully be back one day

    « Nice relaxing setting. »

    Booked this hotel as a half way house between the Lakes and the Trough of Bowland. The setting is perfect being right on the first and last holes of a golf course. The staff were all helpful, especially Rachael, who, when I had a message flagged up on my car's dashboard saying "Electronic fault" she referred me to Garstang Motors who dropped everything in a crowded forecourt and put me back on the road within an hour. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. Breakfasts and the evening meals had plenty of choices, with the locals outnumbering guests at night. I would certain book this hotel again..

    « Good room and breakfast »

    The hotel is in a quiet location near A6 outside of Garstang. The room was excellent but the normal BW rewards early check-in was not available. The buffet breakfast was good. It was nice to have fresh milk for hot drinks in the room. The only draw back in the room was the extremely hot water with no mixer tap.

    « Journey break »

    We booked into Garstang as a stop over on our way down South. We were interested as they had a golf and board offer. The room was very good overlooking the golf course. We found the dinner on the first day not so good and left us a bit disappointed. It was better on the second day as we chose off the main menu. The golf course was still getting over a very wet spring and was in pretty good condition. We were refused a buggy on the first day as we would finish too late for the person in the shop. On mentioning this to the reception they said they could have let us have one. The shop is no more than somewhere to pay as the stock was very sparse. We might stay again just for the golf.

    « Sales Meeting »

    This was the second time we have stayed and held a meeting here. The staff were very helpful as the booking kept expanding. Due to an evening meeting on arrival we were late getting to our planned meal, the staff and particularly the manager were very accommodating and did not pressure us to finish. The food was most enjoyable and the manager stayed back to ensure that we were catered for. Rooms were spacious, comfortable, clean and had all that was required for a good nights rest. The meeting room was more than adequate for our needs. The location is superb, even if you are not interested in golf, the scenery is good. Overall great value for money and we shall be back.

    « Driving Range »

    The driving range and golf course in Garstang could do with some improvement, however, its always maintained well. The driving range, although basic, is spectacular to throw golf balls around and release inner anger.

    « Another great stay! »

    Another great stay at the Golf club as always. Stayed four nights this time, service great as always and nice to see one of the weddings being set up, as I was going out for the day! perfect place for a wedding with the beautiful gardens I looked out onto from my room, and of course the golf course!

    « Reasonable »

    The hotel is located on a golf course. You enter the car park via a housing estate. Plenty of parking. Warm welcome and easy check in. The room was well presented. Free wifi. Evening meal was very reasonable- fish & chips and a Stella £12.95. Check out was swift. I would stay again.

    « Golf course »

    Golf course is still like a swamp, that's October till April. Still have to pay full price no reductions for terrible conditions, man in the shop is arrogant to the point of making you feel like your lucky to be playing his course. Won't be rushing back plenty of other courses around some you don't need wellies!!!! Big dug outs on the 17t h green have been there several weeks now, it's all about taking your money,

    « TERRIBLE !!!!! »

    Visited here yesterday for lunch. Lovely restaurant all set up. Crisp white tablecloths, green cotton napkins. There were two tables in the restaurant with a total of six people. I attempted to get the lunch menu from the side to be told by a waitress - have you booked ? - no - are you a resident - no - are you a member - no ............ then with a complete look of horror and disgust I was told in no uncertain terms you can only eat in the bar area and are NOT ALLOWED in here !!!! CUSTOMER SERVICE NON EXISTANT . ATTITUDE TERRIBLE The waitress made no effort in trying to get our business in fact was very indigent that I was not allowed in the restaurant. Perhaps only the chosen few are allowed ???? so that will be the reason there was a total of 6 people in the whole restaurant !!! We have just moved to this area and were looking for nice places to eat - this is obviously not one of them. So we took our family and our £200 lunch bill elsewhere CUSTOMERS BE WARNED - DO NOT GO MANAGERS YOU NEED TO REVIEW YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE POLICY - AND EVEN DECIDE IF YOU WANT CUSTOMERS AT ALL

    Fabulous catering for a charity event. Bar has an excellent range of drinks and good quality wine. Hotel rooms are comfortable, clean and spacious. Ideal venue for many events, the table dressing was fabulous each table had a Disney theme.

    Comfortable rooms with good facilities and good food in a quiet location and good road links, easy to get to. Having stayed in a few best Western hotels this is just as expected I was not disappointed.

    « Wedding »

    I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and the hotel for everything they did for my new wife and I on our wedding day. Everything was perfect from start to finish. They could not have been more helpful. The wedding breakfast was excellent and the bacon/sausage barms in the evening went down treat. All in all our day was perfect!! Big thankyou to Wendy for organising it all and to Chris on the day who helped to make sure everything ran smoothly. If you are planning your wedding here, I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thankyou again to all involved.

    « Quiet hotel overlooking golf course »

    Had stayed here once before. Got a late winter deal at £49 B&B so excellent value. As a Best Western Diamond member was upgraded to executive room overlooking the course. Fairly basic furnishings but all comfortable enough. Free wifi that proved reliable. Pod coffee machine in room but not the usual biscuit. Helpful receptionist. Brasserie staff OK but a bit inexperienced. Starter of mozzarella and tomato proved to be a rocket salad with a little mozzarella and sundried tomatoes. Not really what I wanted. Decent steak though. Nice guest beer. Happy to visit again.

    « valentines night »

    excellent night. Meal very good and bar prices very reasonable. Many hotels offering this type of package charge silly bar prices and puts you off returning but not so here. DJ was excellent, catered for all age groups and got people mixing and dancing all evening. Additional entertainment was provided by two very drunk and rude couples who spoilt the night for a lot of people by their abusive behavior. Management should have asked them to leave as soon as they fell off their chairs pulling the table and all the contents with them. Broken glasses and crockery flying everywhere. Was amazed they continued to be served at the bar as one lady couldn't even stand! Top marks to the hotel for the valentines package but dining room management a let down by not controlling the situation at the outset. In saying all that, we were lucky enough to be on the other side of the room so not involved and would certainly return and recommend to friends.

    large clean rooms, with all you need, cosy fire when you walk in sets a great atmosphere only down side wifi was very hit and miss, which as a business guest was frustrating at times. Food is okay and nice range.

    « Great Dinner Dance »

    We visited The Garstang Country Hotel last night for a Caravan Club Dinner Dance. The large function room is ideal for numbers upto around 120. Prices at the bar are very reasonable, staff are all polite and know what their doing. There was a very good selection of dishes, each table was served at the same time, everyone enjoyed their dishes. I had a lovely piece of Salmon and my wife had the Roast Beef. It's certainly one of the better venues for mass catering.

    « Nice enough, rooms could do with a refresh »

    2nd time i have stayed here. Nice reception and bar area. I ate in the restaurant, reasonably priced menu with some good food. The only real downside is the rooms a getting a bit tired and could do with a refresh. All staff very helpful and pleasant.

    « Brilliant New Year's Stay and Gala Dinner »

    This is a wonderful place to see the New Year in. The rooms are warm and comfortable, the service is second to none, and the food is superb. There is nowhere else we would go for New Year. But....one small complaint this year, the DJ at the Gala Dinner did not play one song from this century; obviously he thought that we were all too old to appreciate music from the 2000's....not true. Otherwise....superb

    « Strictly average unless you're a golf fan »

    Let me be clear, I do not play golf so I am rating this hotel exclusive of all it offers for the golf fan. The rooms are sparse, and basic. The property itself is dull and furnished in a way that reminds me of the 1980's. It's not that there's anything particularly wrong but there's no effort to stand out and excel or be impressive. Food was barely adequate given the prices charged but the deep-fried brie was fried in the same oil as fish (a big no-no in any decent kitchen). I would like to know whether the management are even familiar with this basic fact. All in all this venue gets 3 stars for being very very average indeed.

    « Birthday Party »

    We went to a birthday party at the golf club and was pleasantly surprised with the whole place. the layout of the function rooms were very good. décor very pleasant. the bar prices were what you would expect in a place like this but the food and service of the food was spot on. tables were layed out well and plates were cleared promptly.

    « Great value »

    Stayed here for three nights and cannot fault the hotel. The rooms are a good size, the bed even better, and the breakfast is excellent. If you want better than this you will have to find a four star hotel and pay accordingly.

    Booked in for Christmas day lunch with my parents and Auntie. Had a lovely day, food was excellent, not rushed and relaxed party atmosphere. Staff were friendly and restaurant manager very on the ball and attentive. Welcome drinks, fancy hats, balloons, party poppers (nice not tacky) and a visit from Santa were a lovely touch. Free wifi too!

    Stayed for one night in the run-up to christmas. Hotel was very quiet but warm, cosy room and a clean bathroom with very hot water. Slept well in peaceful surroundings. Late supper was ok nothing exceptional, breakfast same. A good stopover for one night and good value.

    « Tasteless, poorly cooked, overpriced, terrible meal. Compere also very poor taste »

    For £26, my vegetarian friend had her starter taken off her (Fawlty Towers style) and actually given to someone else, while the spoon was mid-way to her mouth, followed by a "tart" which was actually a soggy quiche on uncooked pastry (therefore inedible), followed by a "cheesecake", which she had to send back because it wasn't a cheesecake - it was a mousse (therefore made with gelatine, therefore not vegetarian) on a biscuit base. No alternatives or refunds were offered. Which meant that all she actually ate for her £26 was some carrots and a few sprouts! It wasn't until a friend intervened to suggest that maybe they could give her some cheese and biscuits, that she had anything to eat at all. The meat -eaters' terrine and roast beef/turkey could have been made of anything at all - as they were tasteless, chewy and bland. The compere made offensive misogynist jokes at the expense of another friend who was fanning herself,offering her patches for her hot flushes (which made me wonder if he also made jokes offering sanitary protection to women too). All in all, a dreadful service and a waste of money.

    « 1 night business stay »

    Staff pleasant and helpful. Food good. Room service quick. Rooms dated but effort has been made to update with quality soft furnishings. Cleanliness of room/bathroom of reasonable standard, but not immaculate. Breakfast - would prefer pot of tea, as opposed to tea bag deposited in a (small) cup.

    « Wedding »

    We booked into this Hotel with high expectations only to be bitterly disappointed.Two of the rooms smelt musty, one the toilet wouldn't flush,surely this is checked when cleaning the rooms.After a night of being kept awake by loud noises from above of doors slamming and shouting,i was looking forward to a relaxing breakfast.(how wrong was i).From the moment we walked into breakfast i felt like a inconvenience to the waiter serving us.well i say serving us we pratically did everything for ourselves.We set up our own table in order for us to sit together.I work in hospitality so this for me was no relaxing breakfast that the other guests around me seemed to be getting.Very poor service and very poor response from the manager who appeared towards the end of breakfast after we raised our concerns.

    « Wedding Weekend »

    We booked 4 rooms a couple of which had a musty smell - the rooms were Executive but we found them pretty basic. We had a very poor breakfast due to the indifference of the 1 guy running it - food was OK but that's about as far as it goes. Would not return.

    The visit was enjoyable, stayed for 4 nights. Had been previously to a wedding some 6 years earlier. Although clean it is looking tired and could do with freshening up, bit of paint etc... Food was good in the evening and at breakfast..... Room was comfortable even though we got single beds instead of a double bed as requested but didn't spoil our stay......

    This is becoming a regular hotel when I am on business in the area, The hotel is part of a Golf complex with a floodlit driving range and Golf course.

    Another great stay again at the Golf club, staff excellent and loved the new look Bradbeer! very busy with meetings and functions while we were there, but as always no noise disturbance in the room, which is one of the things I like about the hotel. the room was clean and well equipped, really good powerful showers, iron and board in room no need to ask for one, nice view over the gardens this time, breakfast good as always plenty of choice. We had a day trip to Scotland, arriving back late after 10pm, we ordered some food at the bar which was no trouble at all! the young lad Chris on that night offered to bring the food to the room when ready, which was great!

    « Comfortable Hotel But Disappointing Golf Course »

    We played a round of golf before booking into the hotel and were disappointed with both the layout and condition of the course. The greens had been heavily cored, a fact which hadn't been explained to us at the time of booking. The layout lacks vision with wide open fairways and long walks between greens and tees which are made more difficult due to the lack of signage. Check-in to the Hotel was friendly and efficient and the bedroom was well equipped and comfortable. One off-putting feature was a slightly musty smell (room 6) which we could not pinpoint. The restaurant and Bistro provided a very enjoyable dining experience both at dinner and breakfast. The menu offered a good choice of dishes and food was well presented and tasty. Overall a very enjoyable stay and whilst we would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to potential guests the same cannot be said of the golf course.

    Just a quick note nice hotel, very friendly staff and it is clean and tidy. (Apart from the fly's/wasps in the light fitting. The restaurant has a good variety and is really tasty. A recommendation for anyone especially if you like golf ( not like me ). Keep up the good work.

    « Presentation »

    Clean & Comfortable room with view over surrounding countryside. Breakfast was nice. Bar prices reasonable. Evening meal was good, but I couldn't manage all the potatoes I was served with. Service was excellent and all staff I encountered were helpful. My only criticism is that as a blue badge holder, my room was furthest from the lift along the corridor; I suspect the hotel; had not been advised of this fact or I would have been allocated a room nearer the lift. There didn't seem to be provision to enter this when booking on line.

    « Exceptional staff, excellent service. »

    I booked this hotel last year for a four night stay for our golfing society golf week. Twenty three of us stayed at the hotel and everyone had nothing but the highest praise for the staff and service we received. We each had a double room for single occupancy that was excellent, the food in the hotel was first class and in the bar there was a good range of beers to choose from. It's a super place to stay and has everything you could want.

    « Excellent hotel »

    We stayed here for 2 nights on a 'mini-break' in Lancashire. The rooms are very nice and spacious. The bar and dining area has recently been updated and was very comfortable - 2 cask ales available in the bar which was an added bonus for me. We ate their both nights and the quality of the food was excellent.
