It was a large room and as you entered the room to the right there was a tea and coffee making area with supplies of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk in tiny cartons and 2 small packets of biscuits.

Above the sink was a range of complimentary products soap, shampoo, shower gel and conditioner. ~Leisure Facilities~ The leisure facilities here are really impressive and consist of : 18 metre swimming pool Large gymnasium Steam room Toning tables Solarium Jacuzzi Dance studio Squash courts Atrium cafe bar which is situated at the side of the swimming pool. Being a Lancashire lass I had heard about the leisure facilities here before so although we where only staying for one night to attend a family function we checked in as soon as we could about 2 o clock and after dropping our luggage off at our room we headed straight for the swimming pool. The pool is a decent size and the water was a nice warm temperature. After a 30 minute swim I decided to give the Jacuzzi a try it was hot and the bubble jets where really powerful so I sat and relaxed for a good 15 minutes. Next came the steam room which was hot hot hot and really steamy obviously. We did not have time to try all the leisure facilities but got to do the things we wanted then we went to our room to shower and change for the function at night. ~Function at Night~ The function room at night was in the wrightington suite which was set up lovely and we had all pre-ordered our meals I had : Starters I love asparagus so went for the mushroom and asparagus risotto which was lovely with lots of nice pieces of asparagus on top and the risotto was delicious and creamy with a very slight bite risotto is hard to cook just right but this was perfect. Main Course Pork wrapped in parma ham and served on a bed of colcannon mash this was served with roast and boiled potatoes and seasonal vegetables. This was again delicious the pork was succulent and very tender. Dessert Home made chocolate mousse served with a dark cherry coulis and shortbread biscuits. Really rich and chocolatey I am a bit of a chocolate monster and love morello cherries so this was perfect for me. Wine Red or white wine was served with the meal and was regularly replenished we also had a glass of bubbly for the toast. Coffee We finished with coffee and chocolates. ~Breakfast the following morning~ Breakfast at weekends is served from 8-10 and you help yourself. There was a choice of cereals, croissants including chocolate ones, fresh fruit and yogurts you can also get a full English breakfast from the hotplate area which I noticed was being regularly replenished this consisted of bacon, sausages, fried eggs, beans, tomatoes. A waiter took our order for tea, coffee and toast. I had cereal then everything from the hotplate, toast and then finished off with a chocolate croissant and a cup of tea I really enjoyed my breakfast. ~Opinion Overall~ I really enjoyed our stay here everywhere was clean and welcoming and the leisure facilities where amazing it is well worth another visit just for that. We enjoyed all the food we had it was very well cooked of an high quality and delicious. If you have anything planned in the Lancashire area I would highly recommend this hotel. We paid £80.00 for a double room which included breakfast this was a cheaper price because we where attending a function.
