Good food and service but hotel lacks investment compared with others locally

The outside of the hotel is impressive, the inside less so.

The hotel corridors are palaces of anaglypta wallpaper and austere lighting. The rooms that have not been refurbished (I understand some have) are like time travel to the 1980s. My bathroom was really poor with a low pressure shower where it is difficult to get wet. Downstairs the bar area is dated, but serviceable. The food and service are very good; local food cooked well, with polite and prompt service. The breakfast selection is wide, and well presented and served. I understand the restaurant is the process of refurbishment and it has the potential to look much better. The food and staff save this place.

A great hotel in beautiful countryside

We had a two night stay and our room was in the attached lodge with a fantastic view over hills.

Good room though the memory foam mattress does not suit me - too soft. The staff were all very friendly and efficient. Both the evening meals and breakfasts were sumptious. Close to many amenities, lovely coutryside. It far near Pendle Hill, Trough of Bowland and Rivington Pike so it is a great base for walkers. Barnoldswick is worth a visit but give Nelson and Burnley a miss. Would sray there again.
