Many many thanks to the extremely hard working and organised staff of The Old Mill.Our son and daughter in law wedding was just a dream event.McKenzie and her staff made the event extra special, guests wanting for nothing.Main wedding meal was so, so enjoyable. I've been to several weddings were the food was either cold or luke warm, not the case here. Food was piping hot, delicious and well preportioned. The evening event was set up in same room. Staff rushing around in record temperatures to get things ready. Dance floor laid, table and chairs reorganised and DJ stand and lights set up.The evening event was a great sucsess everyone enjoying themselves.The evening food was a hot buffet, variety was brilliant, plenty for everyone and so so tasty.I can and would recommend The Old Mill for anyone's wedding or any special occasion or celebration.Once again a massive thankyou to McKenzie and her dedicated staff for a fantastic day. Kind regards Brian Rawlinson Snr.

What an amazing day yesterday at my goddaughters and her new husbands wedding. Venue perfect. Food perfect. We stayed over the room was spot on. The staff could not do enough thank you all you worked so hard all day and night to make it such a special day for the bride and groom and guest. Only thing you could do is get a lift for the elderly and disabled guest but easier said than done I suppose
15:07 02 Jul 18

Wow what can I say. Myself and Charlie Rawlinson had our wedding here yesterday. Mckenzie and all the staff did an amazing job running the day. They catered to every need and didn't stop all day/night. The food for the wedding meal was superb, all tasted amazing and was presented like a very expensive restaurant. The evening hot buffet was fantastic. Amazing range of food which all tasted fantastic. Rooms were immaculate. All guests were complimenting how lovely everything was. Would highly recommend this venue for any event. Once again a massive thankyou to all staff involved and especially Mckenzie. We loved every moment!!Mr & Mrs Rawlinson.

I would like to express my gratitude to the way Kenzie handled all the preparations for my daughter's wedding at the Old Mill, Ramsbottom yesterday. She is an amazing young lady and I couldn't thank her enough for all the hard work she put into Nina and Gareth's special day. Kenzie is so professional in her approach and her organisation and management skills are truly admirable.A huge thank you also to Abi and all the staff who rallied around. They were all brilliant and so hard working and made the day go smoothly.

Staff were great, and food really good, but the rooms are looking tired and they need new mattresses on the beds. I would stay again, but needs dressing up.

Stayed here for a friends wedding last weekend. The hotel was ok rooms were very basic but clean and the bed was comfortable. We loved the pool and steam/sauna and the changing rooms were lovely. As we were only attending the evening part of the wedding and arrived for check in around 3 I was extremely disappointed that there was nowhere to get a drink due to the wedding meal taking place in the only bar area. So instead we decided to order room service for 2 cokes however we were phoned back to say the staff were all serving the wedding guests and they would bring it when they could! I was also disappointed that no food could be ordered either as after a 5 hour drive we were getting very hungry and weren't attending the wedding until 7.30. I didn't fancy walking into town in the pouring rain after getting dressed up for the reception after we were expecting to be able to have a drink and snack with another couple also attending the evening do. In the end the 4 of us were squashed into our double room and ordered a dominos! Which arrived quicker than the cokes! We did enjoy our friends wedding reception though despite a awkward change over as it was all in 1 room so everyone was squashed at the bar.
20:24 14 Aug 17
We loved this hotel! The staff were very welcoming and friendly! The food was delicious! Our only downside was being on the third floor with a baby and a pram and no lifts! Excellent place to stay and would recommend. Food excellent. Rooms lovely and clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful. The swimming pool, sauna and steam room were good also. Situated at the top of a hill but only a 10 minute walk into town. Will definitely be going back
Cudnt get in my room until 1500 instead 1400 staff very helpfull.
20:20 31 Jul 17
Myself and my boyfriend stayed here from an offer I found online. Throughout our whole stay the staff were fantastic, very welcoming and helped in anyway they could. The spa was lovely and we did make the most of these facilities, making new friends in the jacuzzi. The rooms are not as big as I expected and there was a few stains on the netting, which unfortunately lost you some points, however it wouldn't stop us coming back. Our evening meal was beautiful, I had the chicken stuffed with black pudding and my boyfriend had the steak. We were both pleasantly surprised with it and finished off with a lovely cheesecake. Breakfast the next day was great too, offering everything g you could of wanted. Again staff were accommodating. Over all a fantastic weekend and would recommend here to anyone.
Great hotel facilities brilliant. Great staff and service
17:31 24 Jul 17
We really enjoyed our short stay. The pool, sauna and steam room made for a refreshing change and the gym is very well kitted out. The room was pretty basic but clean with a lovely comfy bed. The staff were all charming and very helpful. The bar and restaurant are nicely furnished and the food was honestly excellent, beautifully presented generous portions and absolutely delicious. Thanks for a lovely evening!

Stayed at the hotel Thurs-Saturday for my best friends wedding on Friday. The hotel is in a lovely location and the grounds/views are very scenic and pretty. Ate in the restaurant and drank at the bar more than once and thought food was nice, if I was being picky I'd suggest adding another vegetarian option to the menu so I could have had a bit of a choice. The staff were lovely & quickly got me another drink of choice when I couldn't have the complimentary Buck's fizz due to an allergy. Rooms were cozy and I thought the bed was comfier than my own! Free wifi was a great addition and overall I had a lovely couple of days away for a wonderful occasion.

Attended for my daughters wedding on Friday the 2nd June we arrived on the Thursday it's a lovely hotel in a nice setting . We had a lovely meal in the restaurant and had drinks in the bar . The staff were pleasant and the lady that organised the wedding was lovely too . We did find the hotel to be rather warm but this was our running joke . The wedding itself was lovely they decorated the room very nicely the registrar was a lovely man . The wedding lunch was fine a couple of minor issues but nothing to complain about .
18:39 03 Jun 17
Me and my husband had our wedding here on Friday 2nd June 2017 and we're very pleased. The venue was exactly what we were looking for and suited us perfectly. The staff were brilliant and went out of their way to make sure the day ran smoothly. There were one or two minor issues but nothing to take away from our day or to overly complain about. Overall we are very happy that we had our wedding at The Old Mill and wouldn't change anything
17:06 03 May 17
Very nice hotel. Only stayed one night, breakfast was fantastic very nice, lovely staff.. only one small problem ( and I'm sorry ) had to wait at the bar upstairs ages for someone to serve drinks, couldn't find any staff and had to go back down to reception. Sorry�
We stayed here last night as we were attending a party in Ramsbottom. The hotel is in a very pretty setting. The staff were helpful and we had everything we needed in our room. We had a sandwich in the cozy bar which was very good and enjoyed an excellent breakfast this morning. We also spent time in the pool and sauna this morning which refreshed us for our journey home. The only problem was the heating in our room which couldn't be turned off, making sleeping difficult. We contacted reception and they brought us a jug of ice cold water and a fan which cooled the room. Would definitely visit again.

My friend and I had a lovely relaxing morning in the spa area, the facilities were great even if the changing rooms are a little shabby, small and the hotel in general is in need of a makeover. I came here for my 21st many moons ago and the hotel is definitely"tired". The staff were very friendly and helpful and the day was quiet and chilled. I was a little disappointed with the afternoon tea, as the garnish was withered and the small cakes appeared frozen, the scones were definately a cheap value supermarket range and not home made. Still, overall the day was very nice and would return for the facilities
07:33 26 Mar 17
Only stayed one night but staff were very helpful, breakfast was lovely and good service, very clean and comfortable, lovely surroundings would definitely stay again

Visited the Hotel this weekend for 2 nights (24/02/2017-25/02/2017) attending a wedding. The wedding was absolutely beautiful however the service at breakfast was disappointing and the Waitress where not very helpful and was told to wait when asking to order breakfast. Only a few negative comment around the service but overall the hotel was lovely and had a lovely stay. Much to our disappointment when arriving home we noticed we had left a large quantity of valuables in the draw in the room, which we do take blame for leaving , however when contacting the hotel we have been told these valuables are no longer there and have gone. Disappointing end to a lovely trip !!
19:22 27 Feb 17
So my mum got married here on 25.2.17, 30 of us stayed the night before and 24 of us et in the hotel, the food on the friday was lovely but the service was not the best, the rooms were lovely, spacious and clean. the wedding was a beautiful day but the food was not great, the bar staff on both nights were fabulous and couldnt do enough for you, its a shame the breakfast staff wernt the same! breakfast, when it was correct, warm and what we ordered was lovely. the 2 young lads on the saturday night were fab and need credit shown to them, however the overall service was a little rubbish, needless to say the wedding was lovely, The room were they were married looked beautiful, and the multi room was dressed lovely to, my mum and her Husband had a brilliant day so thats all that matters.

The Old Mill has given me a pleasant surprise, i've visited it for drinks in the cosy bar upstairs and also over the weekend I've been to a wedding, staff are absolutely fantastic and very friendly,they always make you feel welcome and Caroline the lady who was on reception at the times I've visited, she can't do enough for you and very pleasant! Drinks in the bar are a little pricey but its always nice to chill and chat with both staff and other customers in there. I haven't experienced the restaurant menu therefore unable to comment but I did have a bacon sandwich at the wedding which was nice. Would definately visit again and look forward in the future to spending a night there!
