This hotel is alright but not worth the price anymore. It used to come with breakfast included which made it stand out from premier inn etc. However now this is not included. We usually stay here a 3-5 time per year., won't be bothering now. Nothing exceptional about it. Save a bit of money and stay somewhere else, the hotel clearly is by no longer offering breakfast. Also, exposed electronics, really not worth it anymore.

We arrived and were pleased with our hotel room especially the shower it was amazing. We went to our first evening meal and the plates were cold, wet and dirty even though they had supposed to be washed. The food was disappointing and it was self service. There were not enough staff It was a shame about the food etc as everything else was amazing. The staff were friendly

I visited the Samlesbury Hotel 16/3/24 with my partner in the hope of having a relaxing night away after a busy working week. We were met with disappointment from the outset, arriving in the car park to find used condoms, soiled underwear, and litter as we stepped out of the car, one can only assume what the car park was being utilised for. On checking in I brought this to the attention of the receptionist in the hope that she would ensure that someone cleared it up ASAP and so that other guests would not be subjected to this, her response was “too much information”. On arrival to our room, I went to use the bathroom, I discovered that there was excrement down the toilet I assume from the previous occupant. The following day as we departed it was noted that the used condoms, soiled underwear, and litter was still in the car park. This made for a very unpleasant stay and although we received an apology from the manager and an offer of a meal for two, I can without a doubt say that I do not wish to return to this hotel anytime soon.

We stayed for 3 nights with a coach party. The decor and furnishings were very good but a few items were not up to par. Breakfast was OK but only two fruit juices,cereal offering limited. The evening meal was completely self service and limited menu. The meals were average quality but mostly lukewarm and we had arrived at the start time of 6.30pm. Room service on the Sunday was minimal with the duvet just thrown over and sheets not straightened. Also bare minimum of milk and tea left and 1 packet of biscuits over the 3 days. There did seem a shortage of staff but the girls were cheerful and friendly.

I've stayed at Samlesbury Hotel at least once a week since Aug 2023 and have found it to be impeccable. The team is so polite, helpful and nothing is too much work. I would like to give a special mention to Elzbieta/Ella who has made my stay exceptional every time, she truly makes me feel like I'm home away from home when I'm at the Samlesbury. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone in the area who needs a comfortable stay for a few nights. Thank you!

Visited this hotel on business with a group of 8 for two days, one night. The staff were very kind and clearly worked very hard and were welcoming. The rooms were ok and were clean. The restaurant looked nice. However this was sadly overshadowed by the absolutely dreadful, dreadful food served for lunch on both days and in the restaurant that evening as well as the general conference facilities. The lunch was exactly the same for both days - really awful sandwiches and chips (chips were ok on day 1, awful on day 2). There was one cup and one glass each so if you wanted to have a coffee and then a tea, there were no fresh cups. Lunch was not cleared away all day and dirty plates were just left all afternoon. Jugs of room temperature tap water. No power sockets on the table for laptops etc. Screen positioned where it could not be plugged in (although a lovely member of staff did get us an extension cable). The fire alarm went off around 4 times during our stay. Dirty dishes outside a room (not any of our group) were left on the floor for over 12 hours. Dinner at the restaurant was really awful. No staff behind the bar, we had to hunt for someone. There was clearly only one member of staff (who again, was lovely) doing absolutely everything. The Caesar salad was lettuce, onion, poor quality chicken and no dressing. The same chicken was deposited alongside a tasteless tomato sauce on the spaghetti for a pasta dish, which four of our group found virtually inedible. The Parmesan for sprinkling was oddly cut into chunks! The burger was ok if a little cold. We did complain and were offered a replacement pizza which was also fairly grim. Breakfast was ok in the morning and the coffee machine coffee was very nice. The hotel generally was also very cold, although we could put the heater on in our conference room which helped. Very disappointing, sadly I cannot recommend. I felt really sorry for the staff and only gave two stars because they were so pleasant. After two days, I was shattered and just wanted to get home so couldn’t face waiting around to complain.

Truly excellent for a budget hotel. I have stayed here many times. It was once a luxury hotel (but Covid really set it back), so you get all the amenities for a fraction of the price. Ella and Aggie were so friendly and helpful and were very kind to laugh at my jokes. Only one criticism; the breakfast plates were cold
