BEST WESTERN Garstang Country Hotel & Golf Club.

Pay, play and stay in a wonderful countryside setting.

The BEST WESTERN Garstang Country Hotel and Golf Club wont just give you easy access to Preston, it'll put you within putting distance of a fantastic 18 hole parkland golf course too!

In addition to well-kept fairways and greens, you'll also have the luxury of great views across the surrounding Lancashire countryside. Within walking distance of Garstang itself, you'll have the chance to enjoy walks without the clubs too, thanks to pleasant riverside routes and the nearby Beacon Fell.

The history of the BEST WESTERN Garstang Country Hotel & Golf Club itself is a fascinating one, beginning life as farming land in the 1600s and evolving first into a golf course and now, over 400 years later, a wonderful hotel made in part from bricks salvaged from the Greenhalgh Castle after Oliver Cromwell's forces dismantled it following a siege. Our staff will be delighted to delve further into the past!

Poor facilities for disabled guests

31/08/2015 Denismenace, Leeds, UK

Stayed in room 1 which we were told is a disabled access room. The first thing we noted was that the bathroom was quite small, but square. There was also a very long and narrow shower cubicle. The ste... more

Executive King room, far from executive!

I am sorry we did not meet your expectations and disappointed that, despite you commenting on us being a nice hotel and breakfast was lovely, you decided to score us as terrible. I am also sorry your view of the course was obscured, the gardens are now in full bloom and we are reluctant to chop them down. We shall review our description at this time of year to allow for this in future. I believe that we refunded your upgrade supplement because of this. I thank you for your other comments although it is disappointing I was unable to discuss these with you as I believe you may not have chosen to include them in your review. We strive to exceed the expectations of all our guests and I am sorry that the room did not meet yours. I hope that you would return in the future as I believe in another room we could have achieved 5 stars for your visit. Kind regards Chris
