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!

Great Golfing Venue

19/07/2017 PeteB107, Cumbria

Just spent 2 nights here this week including 2 rounds of golf. It's an ideal venue. The golf club is joined to the hotel so you can come straight off the course have a few beers and walk through to yo... more

Overpriced rooms...

17/07/2017 FBB1956, Lancaster, United Kingdom

My wife and I stayed overnight after celebrating a wedding there during the day. The room had been booked on our behalf by the bride's parents but obviously we were to pay the bill. The reception 'sta... more

I am sorry you didn’t find your stay value for money and can understand how you have come to this conclusion. I apologise if the reception staff appeared too busy to be their normal friendly selves on your arrival. Our wedding guests usually arrive together and are keen to get into their rooms so we adapt to our guests needs and try to hasten check-in it appears on this occasion we got the balance wrong. It is a shame you didn’t decide to stay for breakfast as all guests were served within 10 minutes of their arrival despite the need to cook extra for the unexpected guests. It would have been good if we could have identified the additional guests but as they were understandably not keen to introduce themselves as residents to the staff being that they hadn’t booked we were unable to identify them. I do hope you enjoyed the wedding and that you decide to stay with us again where I would hope that you would agree with the majority of our other guests who find us exceptional value for money. Kind regards Chris
