I am glad that you enjoyed the wedding. We do put on a good party! I will have a look into your concerns for you. It is always better to mention something on check in at any hotel and small issues will then not become large. Virtually all of the bathrooms have now been recently replaced on our refurbishment programme....

What Crofters lacks in facilities it makes up in the helpfulness of the staff and quality of food in the Tavern. The rooms are functional but need investment to match the Premier Inn chain which is in the same market space. A basic place to stopover when heading north.

I always read reviews before booking any accommodation but had a few reservations about this hotel but went ahead with booking it anyway. There are plenty of parking spaces. on entering the hotel the receptionist was very friendly and even offered to see if our room was ready even though we decided to walk into Garstang first.

Hi Kaz1061, Thanks for highlighting our friendly staff and large rooms and I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay.

Stayed here last weekend. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was VERY average. Staff friendly enough but not the most efficient. The outside seating area was dirty with uncleared ashtrays and cigarette ends all over the decking. NOT the best. Problem is if you need to stay in Garstang there is nowhere else.

Very average hotel. Found underwear in one of the drawers,ornaments and two pair of socks in the room.Not been cleaned properly or checked..Something you would not expect in a room you had booked. I only want my own undergarments in the drawers.Food in The Tavern was very good indeed with nice waitress.
