Very Pleasant Stay

Posted Jul 27, 2014
Pros: Extremely pleasant and helpful staff. Location close to motorway. Very good value for money.
Cons: There is free Wi-Fi, but was unable to access it in the bedroom I was located in.
I stayed at the Samlesbury for 5 nights. The room whilst relatively small, was more than adequate. The reception team were extremely friendly and helpful. Due to circumstances and schedule, I was not able to try the bar or restaurant, but intend to the next time I am over. I would happily visit again, and indeed intend to.

Right out in country

Posted Jul 17, 2014
Pros: It was quiet and the décor was low-key and very soothing and simple, classy. The foyer is very spacious and soothing as you enter. Nice grounds.
Cons: Price of breakfast.
Location: Out in country. You had to have a car to get to anything or catch a bus either into Preston or Blackburn and catch a train from there, time consuming.
It was right out in the country surrounded by fields. Strong smell of manure outside but not in the hotel itself. You need a car to get around but not necessary. I had no car but I was happy to walk the one mile to the bus stop for the bus to Blackburn. However, going the other way to Preston, the bus stops outside the hotel. Enjoyed lovely sunsets to the west, also sunrise. Birds singing early outside my window. Very comfortable room, very clean, and cool Ikea-type décor, very soothing. Large TV in my room. I thought breakfast very expensive. For instance, in Caernarvon, Wales, you could have full breakfast in most cafes for about four pounds, whereas the Salmesbury charged about fourteen pounds. Altogether a pleasant very sophisticated hotel.

Lovely hotel fantastic last night of our holiday

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: the staff, they were fantastic
Cons: No
This was the best hotel stay I have ever had. From the front desk to the bar to the restaurant the staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel like the valuable customers. The room was a good size and the bed very comfortable. The food is the restaurant was vey good and overall it was a fantastic last night of our holiday we will be finding an excuse to go back.

A* Hotel Break

Posted Jun 3, 2014
Pros: Friendly and competent staff. Newly decorated. Good parking facilities. Great location for our purpose.
Cons: A small fridge in the room would be of benefit!
Location: Unfortunately, our time was taken up with the North West Youth Tour, so we didn't get much of a chance to explore the local area
My son and myself stayed for 3 nights at the Samlesbury Hotel, whilst he was taking part in a cycle race. The location was great. The staff could not have been more helpful. Bedrooms were really clean and fresh. Beds very comfortable. As we had early starts each morning, we did not get a chance to experience the breakfasts so unfortunately, I cannot comment on food/restaurant.

Travellers Comfort

Really good clean and comfortable hotel with excellent helpful staff and good food. Only downside was the wired Internet which had a habit of timing out. Good location with easy access to Preston. Would defiantly stay again.
