Stayed a night with my husband as our bathroom floor was being tiled (we live in darwen) and enjoyed our stay. Been to many functions here but never stayed over. We was given room 34 looking down the driveway and we woke up to the amazing site of 2 deer in the car park. Lovely people with a very warm...

Stayed here for a wedding.The venue was conducive to a great wedding. Everything was perfect. There is a shared ethic of excellent customer/guest service amongst the staff. The accommodation was very comfortable and the food was delicious.

What a great hotel. It was just where I needed it to be, for attending an expo at Blackburn Rovers FC. (4 miles away). Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was tremendous and the food was superb. It was also great value for money.

Myself and my family stayed here for a wedding. The setup was fantastic. The service was great and the many waitresses and staff were very friendly and efficient. I would highly recommend this place. And although a little worse for wear in the morning they made sure we were looked after for breakfast. Will definitely go again.

My husband and I have just returned from afternoon tea at the hotel. After reading previous reviews I was hesitant to go but I need not have worried. The finger sandwiches were fresh with a selection of beef, salmon, ham and egg mayonnaise, the cakes were plentiful with scones, chocolate brownie, sponge cake, trifle and shortbread. There were fresh strawberries...

Nice traditional hotel. Staff are helpful and rooms are large. Some need a bit of TLC but that's what sets it apart from the normal big chain hotels. Food is freshly cooked and any alterations to the menu are made without bother, All round great little local hotel.

Decided to catch up with a friend by using her groupon voucher which meant it was half price. At first we were asked tea or coffee and then the stand for 2 people arrived with 5 miniature sandwiches instead of six. No cream or jam for the pre sliced scone and a small jelly and cream which should have been...

Ask a question

I have been looking at your hotel as a potential venue, however my concern seen by my partner to a recent reviews about poor service where of no great concerns given peoples differing opinions.

However my one major area of concern is with your apparent substandard food hygiene rating as identified on ratings.food.gov.uk/business/en-GB/212113/Whitehall-Hotel-Darwen by the local council

The site rates your establishment as a 2 – Improvement necessary at the date of inspection on the 03 August 2016

Area inspected by food safety officer Standards found

Hygienic food handling - Hygienic handling of food including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage - Generally satisfactory

Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building - Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building (including having appropriate layout, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control) to enable good food hygiene - Improvement necessary

Management of food safety - System or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future. -Generally satisfactory

What can you do as a potential visitor to alleviate my concerns of not becoming ill due to your poor food preparation standards especially around the

Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building which was reported as “Improvement necessary”?

Can you advise of why such a highly rated venue would achieve such a low score?

Can you confirm what improvements you have made?

Can you ensure your food preparation is of a standard rather than of a dodgy back street café or take-away?
