With stunning views over the beautiful River Ribble, yet conveniently close to Preston town centre and the M6, Macdonald Tickled Trout Hotel has an ideal location. Following a 0.5 million refurbishment, the hotel has just introduced a beautiful new Riverside Bar and Lounge where you can relax and enjoy a beverage from our new Costa Coffee. Join us at the new Scottish Steak Club where imaginatively reworked Scottish favourites are passionately prepared by our world class chefs, using only the finest and freshest produce. In addition a number of our bedrooms are being re-decorated from top to bottom including beautiful new bathrooms and soft furnishings. The hotel has also retained many traditional features, such as wood beams in our restaurant and an open plan lounge, creating a warm and welcoming ambience. Macdonald Tickled Trout is always a popular meetings venue due to our convenient location, well-equipped conference suites and extensive onsite parking. Alternatively, our riverside terrace is the ideal place to enjoy a morning coffee with friends or relax with a pre dinner drink as you take in the views. Guests can enjoy our delicious food and drink and then relax in contemporary en suite accommodation, whilst our versitile function rooms are perfect for weddings.

Good for a short stop over

The deal was good value for money but the rack rate would have been very expensive. Our deal included breakfast but we were challenged (in a friendly way) 3 times over this and were pleased that we had printed out the confirmation to prove our deal. The food was good and the bed very comfortable. Whilst the outside of the building next to a petrol station is not very pleasant, the view from our bedroom over the river more than made up for this. Beware the 2 steps up to the bathroom from the bedroom as coming back down a trip will land you in the mirrored wardrobe.

Room brilliant. Staff average

We stayed here to attend a wedding locally. The rooms were lovely but the staff need to improve their customer service. Breakfast was very slow and the staff needed to smile and realise that 15 minutes is not an acceptable time to wait to have an order taken.

pleasantly surprised but room too hot

For a motorway hotel I was pleasantly surprised and wasn't disturbed at all due to the traffic. The staff were very helpful and room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. Unfortunately due to the hot weather and the fact that the room didn't have any airconditioning I didn't sleep well as the room was roasting hot and even with the windows open there was no airflow. The extractor fan was also extremely loud for about 5 minutes after switching it on but this quietened after this so would advise to persevere despite the noise.
