    The river side.

    It would be great if there was good quality path to walk along the river bank - it was abit rough and inaccessible in parts.

    we were part of a wedding party and only here one night.The room was very nice and the breakfast was very good with plenty of choice.

    Enjoyed the location, the river and the views. The staff were very friendly and helpful in the hotel, bar and dining area .

    Quiet room considering near the motorway. View of the River Ribble from bedroom in the morning.

    Expensive food for dinner. Starter served with bread bits in the balsamic vinegar and the butter pot already used and empty. Had to get new starter. Mushroom lasagne - hardly any pasta and very runny - not good. No peppermint tea bags for breakfast drink. Cranberry juice tasted horrible. Vegetarian sausages were disgusting and no eggs included in the breakfast.

    The breakfast was amazing, so much choice.

    The only fault I can think of was that after a shower the bathroom floor became very slippery.

    I loved this hotel very hepful staf ,very clean and romantic hotel I am sure I will go there more and more

    We have stayed at Trickle Trout twice now. On both occasions we have found the hotel rooms to be clean, spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is good and plentiful with lots of choice. The location of the hotel proved to be ideal for visting our son at the Univestty of Central Lancaster in Preston it being close to the City Centre and easy to find asi it is just off the m6 motorway. The staff are friendly and helpful. Having tried sevearl other hotels in the area we found this hotel to be the best value around. The river behind the hotel is a very pleasant backdrop.

    Traffic noise from the motorway can be a problem if you are a light sleeper even though the windows are double glazed . Ear plugs should suffice. We did not consider the evening meal that we had on one occassion to be good value, though it was pleasant enough. There are various menus with confusing prices. Tea and coffe in the bar loumge is ridiculously over priced.

    The peaceful rural setting we found very relaxing, the members of staff we encountered were very helpful, particularly the gentleman who seated us in the restaurant for breakfast, he was a very interesting fund of knowledge.

    The location was excellent for our needs and had everything we wanted in terms of facilities. Food prices good value but wine was less so. We booked with yourselves as you were offering a much better deal than the Hotel direct so happy to go on your email lists.

    They didn't have details of our booking had us down for an August date but I believe this was due to a computer problem they had at the time. They then tried to charge us more on departure which I believe was the same problem.Otherwise all went smoothly

    The hotel is in a nice spot if you have transport. The car park had a barrier and was secure. I asked for a quiet room and was given a room overlooking the lake which was perfect. I didn't hear the motorway. The rooms are nicely decorated. Breakfast was very good. The evening meal was ok but quite pricey. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The location was great for us. The early meal was an excellent price.

    Receptionist argued about our B&B booking saying we were Bed only.Luckily I had taken an email print out! We were not asked if we had enjoyed our stay as we handed our keys back!

  • Couple
    2.8

    It was like stepping back into the 70's. The place needs a complete overhaul. Paint is tatty and yellowed, carpets are worn and threadbare and the whole place just looks tired. Add to that overpriced food and wine, and a chef who obviously doesn't understand basic requests, and you end up with a pretty memorable experience - for all the wrong reasons. The cooked breakfast at £15.50 was horrible. I will never stay here again, and will never recommend it

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    The best thing was the lovely dinner and Breakfast. Well worth booking the dinner bed and breakfast option as it was a bargin!

    The noise of the motorway and the very hot rooms.
