Our Stay At Stanley House Hotel & Spa

As you have probably seen, last weekend me and the husband ventured ‘oop North’ to Blackburn for our friends’ wedding at Stanley House Hotel & Spa in Mellor, Lancashire.

The night before the big day we stayed in a Travelodge - it was definitely not the nicest one I have stayed in as it was above a service station, stuffy and a bit ming all round. We only paid £20 for it, but to be honest I’d have forked out a bit more for a decent night’s sleep and not having to hear the hacking cough the person in the room above had all night.

The comfiest bed in the world. I want to get back in it right now!

After our Travelodge nightmare we were SO glad we had booked into a room at the wedding venue for Saturday night. We checked in during the wedding reception and were ecstatic to find an amazing room with a lush green view.

The room was so light and airy thanks to the floor to ceiling window, the bed was possibly the most comfortable we have slept in – I want to buy one for myself. I should have had a sneak peek at the brand before I left .

I’m a bit of a hotel bathroom snob and ours got top marks from me. The shower was huge and powerful, so refreshing after a long day spent as a wedding guest and even more welcome after the Travelodge’s shower that should be renamed ‘trickle’.  It was so well thought out and luxurious. The thick, fluffy towels also scored a few extra plush points.

The plush and shiny bathroom and possibly the biggest shower in the world

Luckily we got breakfast included so we both tucked into a hearty Full English before we left, which was served in Mr Fred’s restaurant. Luckily the weekend was gloriously sunny and it was emphasised in this room thanks to the light and airy layout.

The rest of the spacious room, total luxury

Not only was the wedding fantastic, but the hotel was amazing too. I spied that they had a spa, so I’m dying to revisit for a girls’ spa weekend. Hopefully I won’t be waiting too long before I return.
