According to the website, this hotel "is conveniently located in the heart of Lancashire, close to the M6. It is situated near the charming village of Croston and short drive from Preston Lancashire with many local attractions on hand including Blackpool resort and Camelot Adventure Park." (Hmm . . now another Urbex tourist destination!)It "boasts 45 elegant bedrooms comfortably furnished and equipped with all modern comforts. The main areas and some rooms have free wireless Broadband internet access. Its restaurant "serves a wide selection of drinks and sumptuous meals. The bar features a cosy ambiance in which guests can relax and sip their favourite ales while meeting new friends."
We had a nosey round the back but there really was nothing doing here. No access.
Naturally, there was a small collection of broken chairs, getting rather damp outside.
The front porch area had a collection of stained, damp mattresses piled up.
And, of course, there was rather a lot of broken glass.
We peeked through several of the windows, to survey just how trashed the rooms were. Please excuse the reflection but it was impossible to avoid it.
The main reception area was particularly trashed.
And finally, this sign which promised "the perfect setting for the most important day of your life." The lettering was difficult to read, as it was so faded.
Not any more . . .
