From the moment we arrived for our 9 day stay we felt welcomed and comfortable in the surroundings. Friendly, courteous and attentive staff was at hand throughout. Spacious clean bedroom with modern ensuite exactly to our liking. Inhouse restaurant 'Othellos' served freshly cooked breakfast and the evening dinner was superior to any Michelin star establishment. Would certainly stay again and... More

My husband and I got married at Astley Bank in Sept 2016. We had a fantastic day and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We mainly dealt with Jason and Christine, both of whom did exactly what they said they were going to do, exactly when they said they were going to do it. Lots of people say... More

The town of Darwen is unprepossessing to say the least, so what a surprise when, having relied on TA, I found this gem. The best thing about it is the staff, particularly, Vicki, Lucy and Paul, but also the food which is excellent. The duck was so good I had it two nights' running, as I did the crevettes to... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while attending a wedding at the hotel. The staff were welcoming, friendly and did everything possible to make us feel at home. We’d had a difficult journey, arriving after 9.00pm, but the hotel offered to provide us with a bar meal. Room was nice, slightly on the small size, but I understood that the rooms... More

Last Sunday was my 50th birthday and my husband booked for 10 of us to have the 3-course Sunday lunch menu at the Astley Bank Hotel. It did not disappoint! We all enjoyed every minute of our delicious lunches from start to finish and the empty plates at the end of each course spoke volumes! Not only that but the... More

We were here for a wedding and the venue is brilliant for that. The food was great, service excellent and staff helpful. There were enough staff so you were not hanging around at the bar. The choice at breakfast was plenty and the evening menu was also good

Following our successful Golden Wedding August 20th we were delighted to receive an invitation from old friends Pat and Terry for their anniversary party at this highly rated restaurant.

This country house hotel is in a great location and the building is outwardly impressive. But where's the attention to detail? In our £83 room the shower leaked all over the floor, there was only one towel for two of us, the net curtains were ripped in several places, the window safety-catch was broken and the wallpaper was peeling away....
