We used this BW Preston Garstang Golf and Country Hotel as a stopover on the way up to Scotland.
The situation is conveniently located in a semi rural setting, but with easy access back onto the M6 and there are plenty of free parking spaces available.
Reception was OK, but I wish we'd been told that there was only a reduced dinner menu available and that I hadn't accidentally knocked the receptionist's chewing gum off where she'd stuck it on her desk.
Luckily our room was far enough removed along the first floor corridor, that the wedding celebrations going on in the first floor function room didn't effect us; however, we did note that unsupervised children were running back and forth to their rooms along the corridor.
Our room was cold with worn decor and furnishings. We weren't able to turn the heating up and decided against the grubby blanket found in the wardrobe.
Dinner and breakfast were OK, but we had to have both in the brasserie, with the restaurant unavailable and as previously mentioned there was a reduced menu. Service was friendly, but I do have a hang up about staff conducting personal conversations within earshot of customers, which was loudly going on behind the counter, with the topic of conversation being likes/dislikes of fellow colleagues.
We were booked into the BW Preston Garstang Hotel for our return trip, but consequently cancelled on the strength of our experience; however, maybe we were unlucky and it'd suit others, as it's OK, in a quiet location, but not great. less
