Set in beautiful grounds in rural Lancashire. Parking was more than ample. Check-in was very informative, professional and friendly. The room was on the upper floor, difficult to get to however with the double buggy, it had to be folded down and there was no access by lift. Corridors were a tad on the warm side and occasionally uncomfortable. The room itself was incredible. Immaculately cleaned and very spacious. The bed was extremely comfy, plenty of bedding was provided and two cots had been assembled for us. There was a double settee which could be converted into an extra bed and opposite a large HD TV. There was also a TV opposite our bed which was handy, the only criticism was that none of the smart features were available such as YouTube or Netfix, which would have been perfect for our stay. Also the room could ideally come with a mini fridge. The full size dressing table compete with mirror came in handy with large wardrobes. The bathroom was beautifully finished with a bath, walk in shower and heated towel rail. It was cleaned/kept to a good standard. Breakfast was tasty (the second day we had room service which was prompt) and although there are no vegetarian alternatives they went out their way to make a wonderful cooked vegan breakfast including kale, avacado, mushrooms etc. Extra brownie points deserved for that. The bar served until early hours, ales were well kept and made more enjoyable by the gorgeous decor and open roaring fires. My sisters wedding was very well organised, well decorated and ran without fault, making it a lovely occasion to be remembered. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Collapse
If only the rest of the hotel was like the restaurant...

I stayed here on Saturday night, and whilst it was a fairly pleasant experience, there were a few things that influenced my average score. First of all, the main house, on the outside, is beautiful. Unfortunately, inside, the character has been ripped right out of it, and someone has tried to modernise it, and failed. It looks cheap. Secondly, the ongoing repairs. It was a Saturday afternoon, yet there was a joiner at work in the bar, laying a new floor, and using a jigsaw just outside the front door, so it was noisy. You had to stand on his workmanship in order to order at the bar. Odd. The room itself was pretty awful. We were in what they call "the lodge", which does conjur up some romantic vision, however this is where it ends. It's a depressing, 1970's block at the side of the hotel. Yes, they've tried to do it up (in fact the corridor was still being refurbished and all the wallpaper stripped off the walls - again, not entirely acceptable to a paying guest), however it still as an air of late 1980's badly managed motel. Whilst I didn't use the on-site leisure centre, I couldn't help wonder why such an ugly, concrete building was allowed to be built right next to the main house. Now, to the restaurant. Entirely different. Pleasing decor,and superb food. The difference was chalk and cheese (perhaps this is owned and managed separately?). So, it was an 'ok' experience, but had it not been for the restaurant, I'd have come away pretty disappointed. Collapse
What can I say - fantastic!!

On arrival at the hotel we could see that it was a beautiful old building full of charm. The reception staff were lovely and couldn't do enough. The break was to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. We had booked a standard room and were surprised to be upgraded to a suite to help celebrate!! So we stayed in Pendal suite which was at the front of the main building. The room was lovely and had a lovely old feel to it, decorated well and fitting. The bar area is a lovely mix between traditional and contemporary with a fantastic open fire. We stayed Dinner bed and breakfast so ate in the Prime restaurant. The food was excellent! Both myself and my husband agree it was possibly the best stake we have had, he had a ribeye and I had a fillet both cooked to perfection. The starters Deserts and cheese board were all fantastic with service to match. Breakfast again was of a very high standard with lots of choice!! I really can't recommend this hotel high enough and we will definitely be returning! Thank you stink house for a lovely stay! Collapse

We stayed at Stirk house on Sunday, 5 March 2017 on the Sunday saver special , we were treated to a sweet dinner bed-and-breakfast and an afternoon tea all included at the one price The meals are 2nd to none in any hotel weve ever stayed in,the staff cannot do enough for you and the room was magnificent we would highly recommend staying at stirk house The house is set in its own grounds and for birdwatchers et cetera there are grounds to walk around and woodland without ever coming near the main road The bar is well stocked with beers and whiskeys et cetera for all pallets and a very good wine list is available too. You also have use of the leisure centre just across from the Hotel. Collapse

I checked in and soon realised there was a mid week wedding taking place. I decided to retreat to my room and come down later to have a relaxing drink in the lounge before dinner. I reappeared at 7pm, only to find the wedding guests were still occupying every seat. Based on this I went directly to the restaurant for solitude. I would recommend not staying here if there is a function taking place. The food is excellent and the staff are very helpful. Collapse
