Better Than Initial Appearance

Stay Date: 19/09/09, a customer from Lancing who stayed at 4* Samlesbury Hotel in Preston wrote this review.

Excellent bar meal and whopping See More  Read more information buffet breakfast. Also pleasant swimming pool. Very good value for money and only 4 mins from M6.   Collapse  Hide

John's 40th

Stay Date: 28/08/09, a customer who stayed at 4* Mercure Dunkenhalgh Hotel & Spa in Blackburn wrote this review.

The view from the hotel room was poor and the grass was in need of a good cut, however, our room was away from the main building and considering there was 2 weddings on, we never heard a peep. Room See More  Read more information was very clean apart from round the bath area (needed a good scrub or steam clean). The boys enjoyed a great day out on the Saturday morning at Shaw Hill golf course (they would highly recommend it),whilst the girls walked into Accrington to do a bit of shopping, via the bypass (can be a bit tricky, but worth the walk). Then back to the leisure club for gym, swimming and a spot of lunch at theleisure club too. Might I just add the people in the leisure club both in the gym and the reception/food area were not only very friendly, but were a great asset, the food was good as well (and a lotcheaper than in the bar area). Drinks in the bar were quite expensive. We then went on to Northcote Manor by hummer limousine, what a treat! I can highly recommend the food, if you do go take advantageof the gourment menu. We then drove in the hummer to blackpool casino, champagne still flowing! We all won at the casino just to top off a great weekend!.   Collapse  Hide

The Festival Of Quilts

Stay Date: 21/08/09, a customer who stayed at 4* Mercure Dunkenhalgh Hotel & Spa in Blackburn wrote this review.

Although our hotel is still nearly 2 hours away from the NEC we still enjoy staying there because of the excellent leisure facilties, superb food, comfortable rooms and excellent staff. Getting to See More  Read more information the NEC by car is straightforward well signposted as you approach Birmingham and convenient parking. This annual exhibition has entries from all over the world and the variety of quilts truly amazing.Even if you are not a quilter there is much to see and enjoy. We left the NEC at the close of the show in order to get back to our hotel for dinner. Breakfast is always good but dinner is fabulous.The hotel bake their own bread and at least three delicious varieties are served. Drinks are reasonably priced and booking in on a half-board basis will save you money on your food. I'd recommend itespecially booking with Superbreak.   Collapse  Hide
