Avon Dinner – Monday 11th June 2018

Hi Bethany
Just a quick note to say how much Sue and I appreciated what your whole team did for the Avon event last night.
Rather a long time ago I had a holiday job where I did both kitchen work and some waiting on, and I’ve worked alongside a catering section in one of my later jobs, so I have some idea of what goes on.
What went on last night was excellent. The chef’s choices to fulfil Avon’s brief for the meal were good. Service was smooth and efficient. The wine was more than drinkable – not something you can rely on at function meals at some chain hotels!
And we slept very well and enjoyed breakfast.
Please thank your team from us.

Livesey Private Dine – Saturday 5th May 2018

From beginning to end we received excellent customer service. Angela was efficient and responsive and no request seemed too small. She was extremely thorough and efficient.

On the night, Joseph and Anna or Hanna, sorry not sure of the spelling, were great. Hanna was really friendly and extremely pleasant to deal with and had a smile for everyone.

Joseph was a total professional managing all our requests from beginning to end in a friendly and helpful manner and with a sense of humour!

All in all a wonderful experience. Please pass our thanks and appreciation to the team.

Bradley 50th Birthday – Saturday 17th February 2018

Anne Baird, Diamond Wedding Anniversary, 5th August 2017

Hi Emily, thanks for a lovely “do” on Saturday for my parents’ diamond wedding. They thoroughly enjoyed it, as did we all. It’s a shame we didn’t get the weather, but the big windows made sure we didn’t feel closed in in any way, which is why I chose it
Thanks again

Bob Payne, Managing Director, Altitude Services Limited,Sunday 18th June 2017

Morning Andy, Emma and team
Just back at my desk today having spent most of yesterday at Stanley House. I wanted to say thank you for a fabulous party, Anne absolutely loved it from start to finish, from arrival on Sunday afternoon to leaving yesterday everything was perfect!
Patrick and his team were amazing too, nothing was too much trouble – everything went like clockwork. Compliments to the Chef and his team, the food was delicious.
The ones that stayed overnight spent a very enjoyable few hours yesterday either sat outside or in the Spa, no-one wanted to leave.
I couldn’t fault any aspect of our experience with you, it made Anne’s birthday celebrations very special and one she’ll always remember.
Thanks to all involved.
Kind regards

Clare Last, CL Travel Solutions on behalf of Stoke City Football Club, Tuesday, 4th April 2017

Hi Emily,
Everyone was very impressed with the hotel – it’s really unusual for players and staff to mention how nice a hotel is because they stay in all number of 5* hotels but at least 6 of them (including the Manager) mentioned how lovely it was.
Thanks, Clare

Helen Greenwood, Urology Account Manager, Astellas Pharma, Thursday, 12th January 2017

Good Evening
I would just like to give some feedback from my two day stay at the hotel with the Astellas Meeting booking 12/13th Jan.
We were served in the bar by ‘Vee’ I think her name was. The lovely lady working in the bar yesterday evening. She went out of her way to accommodate us and make us feel very welcome. Her knowledge on the gins and desire to please was lovely and really helped make our stay. I would just like her exceptional service to be recognised.
I would also like to feedback that all of our group commented on the lovely staff across all areas of the hotel. Without exception everyone was so lovely .
As a group who spend a lot of time in hotels the staff at Stanley House really shone out and it was mentioned many times during our stay.
Thank you to all the team, it was a pleasure to stay with you.
Best wishes

Nurjaha Adam, Thursday, 7 January, 2017

Rachel Hindle, Development Director – Stonyhurst College

We held our 1st Stonyhurst fundraising Bursary Ball at Stanley House which was a resounding success. The team at Stanley House were great to work with and were extremely helpful with the pre-planning of the event. On the night itself, their team were professional, friendly and they thought of everything. The food was fabulous and we have received so many wonderful comments from our guests who attended on the night.

Liz Islam, Business Development Manager – Lancashire Women’s Centre

Dear Emma,
I am writing to thank you and the team at Stanley House Hotel for the wonderful assistance and support provided to Lancashire Women’s Centre’s as we arranged our 30th anniversary ball.
Your help in both planning the event and ensuring the smooth running on the night was invaluable. Your advice and suggestions ensured that the ball was a great success; in particular we received many positive comments about the staff team on the night and their hard work to ensure that everyone had a wonderful time.
The event was a great success and provided us with an opportunity to reflect and celebrate upon the achievements of the charity, and the women we support, over the last three decades. We were joined on the evening by many of our founder members, volunteers and women who access our services as well as staff and key supporters. As well as marking our anniversary we were also able to raise over £2500.00 on the night to support our continuing work with women across the county.
Once again, our grateful thanks to you and your team for your efforts in ensuring that our event was such a success. We look forward to working with you again in the near future!
Yours sincerely
Liz Islam, Business Development Manager

Stanley house has been the best venue so far
Lewis was absolutely brilliant. He was so attentive to everyone and I felt very well looked after especially with all the effort put in to deal with my dietary requirements
The best food I’ve ever had at a function
One of the best nights ever!

I am writing to thank you on behalf of my Director and colleagues at Nuvia Limited for the excellent experience we had during our two-day conference held at the Stanley House Hotel & Spa recently.
We were all very impressed with the excellent facilities, fabulous food, tranquil location and the attention to detail that we experienced during our stay. All staff were very friendly, professional and most helpful during our two day stay and nothing was too much trouble for any of them.
The agenda and timings that I agreed with you in advance were all strictly adhered to and everything was exactly as planned. We couldn’t fault anything and would like to thank you personally for your input into what was for us, a very successful two days.
We would have no hesitation in returning for a similar experience in the future and do recommend the Stanley House Hotel and Spa as an excellent venue.

Mr & Mrs Hartley

With reference to the above which took place last Sunday afternoon on the 11th August, many thanks for your assistance in arranging this function. You already know we have visited Mr Fred’s restaurant quite regularly over the last twelve months and always found it to be excellent so Mr Fred’s was the obvious choice of venue for my wife Stephanie’s Special 60th Birthday Lunch for close family and friends.
The room setting was perfect with one long table set diagonally to accommodate everyone and just before our lunch we had welcome drinks. The limited A la carte menu was perfect for our large party and everyone commented that the food was excellent.
As for Stephanie and myself the day could not have gone any better it was absolutely perfect, a Special Day on a Special Birthday, one we will always remember.
I would also like to say a big thank you to all the staff they were exceptional, nothing was too much trouble, and all our requirements and wishes were met.
We look forward to visiting Mr Fred’s again very soon.
Yours Thankfully
Paul & Stephanie Hartley

Roger Jonas, Events Manager, Downtown in Business

“We hold the Lancashire Business Awards at Stanley House every year for a reason, not only because of the fantastic location, but more so for the attention to detail and the quality of the service we receive.

Last Thursdays event was exceptional, mainly down to the skill and professionalism of three people. Emma Eccleston, Giovanni and Lewis provided us with exemplary customer service both before and during our event. It is obvious that all three have qualities that contribute to the high standards set by Stanley House. We extend our sincere thanks to all three.

Also, the quality of the food and table service, too was exceptional. Your staff were slick, friendly and took direction perfectly. I would be grateful if you could extend our gratitude to all concerned in yet another great event with Stanley House.”

Lesley Prince, HR & Administration Assistant, Hitachi Europe

Everything – from the red carpet welcome; the pleasant ambience; beautifully presented table settings; the attention to detail from Jonathon and the smiling waitresses; and, of course, the delicious food – was very much appreciated.

On a personal level, your thoughtfulness and courteous manner throughout the planning of the evening, Giovanni, has been appreciated – Thank You!

One lady said “when you’ve been to Stanley House you always feel you’ve been somewhere special” – and that says it all!
