Lancashire hotel brings home the bacon
Award-winning Lancashire hotel and spa, Stanley House, has been recognised for excellence after achieving an overall score of 91 per cent and a four star rating in its latest VisitEngland review.
VisitEngland’s Quality Assessment scheme, which establishes quality in tourism, has also presented the Mellor hotel’s Mr Fred’s bar and lounge with a gold award for its breakfast offering.
The VisitEngland assessment team praised the hotel for Stanley House’s high levels of quality across accommodation, housekeeping, service and food.
The hotel’s restaurant team, led by restaurant manager Stuart Aspin, was commended for its dining experience, and the hotel’s use of local produce, directed by executive head chef Steve Williams, also received high praise.
Commenting on the success of the assessment, general manager, Philip Wharton, said: "The hotel is recognised regionally and nationally for the quality of its dining, corporate events, weddings and romantic breaks.
“The Quality Assessment process is exhaustive and credit must go to the whole Stanley House team who work hard to make customer service the number one priority.
“Our Mr Fred’s breakfast always generates great feedback from guests so it’s good to see this officially recognised.”
VisitEngland’s Quality Assessment Scheme is the largest official star rating scheme in the UK, with over 24,000 participating businesses.
