Positive Reviews

Excellent hotel with helpful and friendly staff

The service from everyone you meet at the Macdonald Tickled Trout is is fantastic – they’re always friendly and nothing is ever too much trouble for them The hotel itself is modern and clean and the evening meal and breakfast superb In all, this hotel is good value for money.

Well located with beautiful views

The hotel is in a convenient location just off the M6 motorway and just a short drive from Preston It is situated right next to the River Ribble, and when the weather is good you can sit out on the terrace by the riverbank and enjoy the idyllic views.

Comfortable rooms offer a good nights sleep

Rooms are spacious and comfortable – the beds and pillows nice and soft They have good-sized bathrooms and, despite being near to the road, there is hardly any noise at night If you want to make the most of your stay try to get a room with a view of the river.

Negative Reviews

Poor Wi-Fi signal in rooms

The hotel offers free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel but the signal is patchy The rooms in particular tend to lack a good, or reliable, Wi-Fi connection.

Rooms get hot in summer and lack air-conditioning

On a warm night the rooms can get rather hot This sometimes makes sleeping difficult as there is no air-conditioning in the rooms You can open the windows but only a small amount.

The drinks are rather pricey

On the whole the Macdonald Tickled Trout Hotel is good value for money, but where it does fall down is with the price of drinks Many found the drinks to be overpriced, causing some disappointment during what was otherwise a good hotel stay.
