The first room we were given on arrival smelt of mould (courtyard - room 63). The replacement room in the main building (room 86) was far better. Disappointed that the spa had one less sauna than before lock down & the other steam room had been turned into some type of aroma room. Also, the boiler had apparently broken down so the pool was cold for the 2 days we were there. On the plus side the food was excellent!

Nice, but slow service

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Room was large and spacious. Grounds are lovely and building has a lot of character. However, nobody picked up the phone when i attempted to dial room service, or when i gave up on that after several attempts and tried ringing the main hotel line. Ended up being turned away from the restaurant before the time they state they close. Needs either better communication, or adherance to the information provided in the bedrooms!

Great stay

With the help of great weather we enjoyed our two day stay- Every one made our stay welcome. Except for the fire alarm being accidently activated one night which was so loud thought the world was coming to an end , the quiet was refreshing from the hustle of every day life.

Such a treat!

Really helpful kind staff. Spa was clean and peaceful (but could do with more hand sanitiser so take your own). Restaurant food was great and quick service. Room was lovely and bright too.

Pleasant Stay

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Heather W. Families - 08/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Beautiful hotel in lovely surroundings. Attentive and friendly staff. Great spa. Very long walk to the room, bit should be expected I guess in a hotel of this size. Mediocre breakfast and dinner especially for vegetarians. One gripe, a table outside had dirty glasses left from Saturday afternoon until Monday morning when we left, worrying that table not cleaned or checked for that length of time in a public area. Also Nespresso machine with one pod? Not much use to anyone!

Beautiful hotel and lovely room in a courtyard

Everything was lovely, brilliant room, delicious food however in the spa sauna wasn’t working and pool freezing. As the pool was so cold unable to use throughout stay which does affect when coming on a spa break

Have had better stays at the Dunkenhalgh

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Angela H. Families - 07/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We checked in and were given the wrong rooms, even after confirming with reception. The Spa experience felt rushed and when we had completed our treatments the staff seemed to be busy closing down the communal areas, not very relaxing ! The evening meal was very disappointing and the breakfast not much better.

Amazing stay

Great experience but let down by the lack of a kids menu in the restaurant and having to pay for an adults meal for a young child. Also no food available during the day.

In need of serious maintenance

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Mike Business - 07/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

A tottaly unexpected stay. When most hotels have capitalised over the many months of low occupancy to get long over due maintenance completed unfortunately the Mercure Blackburn Dunkenhalgh Hotel & Spa was not one of them. Very disappointing with many areas showing age and decay including waster damage, the spa was particularly disappointing and seriously in need of a complete refurbishment.

Very helpful staff

Poor service

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Helen Couples - 06/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Check in was ok, but first room key card didn’t work. Our room was a good walk from reception, so had to go all the way back, queue again, get a new key. Second key also didn’t work. A maid kindly let us in with a master key. Room itself was lovely. Drains smelt in bathroom, but shower was good. Dinner service was slow. Breakfast service was shocking. Not much food on offer and we didn’t get hot drinks until we managed to flag someone down once we had finished our breakfast. Staff clearing tables, but not acknowledging guests. Perhaps more staff required. Reception was under staffed at times, with long queues.
