There are so many categories I could choose here!! My husband and I got married here yesterday and what can I say but WOW WOW WOW it was the coming together of 18 months ish of planning....From the word go the staff Donna and Meghan (the dream team) were amazing they were kind, caring but also extremely professional and nothing was ever too much trouble even when just 7 days before the final figures needed tweaking. Planning a wedding when you have additional physical, mobility & emotional needs was extremely daunting however all the planning was taken at my pace, all my worries/needs were taken in to consideration and solutions were found ensuring that my stay was extremely comfortable I couldn't of asked for more... I also felt like all my husbands needs as a type 1 diabetic where also met i.e ensuring there was a member of staff keeping an eye on him to ensure he regularly checked his blood sugars and there were snacks available from the kitchen at short notice which in turn took the weight off my shoulders Now on to the night before the Wedding Being in the accessible bedroom on the ground floor of Parker's lodge by myself after the maid of honour pulled out at short notice was a little worrying and had triggered my Anxieties However Jamie (General Manager) instantly put me at ease by ensuring the night porter did extra rounds and had a mobile phone so I could instantly be connected to somebody should I panic My room was spacious and immaculately clean with a full compliment of tea and coffee making facilities and the toiletries such as soap and shower gel which I had forgotten to pack my every need was again attended too (even when I entered Fitzy's in jeans & a T shirt while other diners were suited & booted)Wedding Day My day started at 6am as agreed by prior arrangement and the staff really did pull out all the stops to ensure my day ran seamlessly.... As the ceremony drew near and the nerves really did start to kick in members of staff where on hand checking on me periodically to ensure I didn't become too overwhelmed Having mobility issues I was also offered the use of a car to ensure I could get to and from the lodge for the ceremony, Wedding breakfast and also the evening reception The room decoration was absolutely enchanting and looked far far better than I ever could have imagined, the food was absolutely delicious and plentiful.Our Master of ceremonies well what can I say Jamie you did a fantastic job and nothing was ever too much trouble no matter how big, small or trivial the request was I dont think Best Western realise how lucky they are to have you My heartfelt thanks go to each AND EVERY member of staff from the cleaners, to the Chefs, kitchen porters, Handy man, Night porter reception and management!! In the words of a Disney princess my dreams really did come true!! 😀 😀 p.s Come on Jamie its time the staff had a raise!!!

We had the most amazing wedding day here last weekend. I could not recommend the Higher Trapp more highly - every detail was thought of from the moment we first looked at the venue to our check out the next day. The setting is stunning and the grounds are absolutely beautiful, perfect for our local wedding in Sabden village. The staff who helped us organise the wedding were wonderful - Donna met us both several times in the run up to the wedding and made us feel totally at ease with her professional and friendly approach to wedding planning. Katie was our wedding planner on the day and was absolutely brilliant - she made sure everything was organised for us and that we were happy with the details. The suite looked beautiful and I couldn't have asked for more. The staff on the day were absolutely superb and very attentive to our guests, many of whom had stayed in the hotel the night before having travelled from all over the country. The food was so delicious and of the highest quality as was the wine- the roast beef was superb and our guests loved every course! I cannot thank the hotel and their staff more for making our day so special and memorable. We know we definitely made the right choice in choosing the Higher Trapp as our wedding reception venue and I would 100% recommend them for any couple! Thank you again for an absolutely wonderful day! Maria and Ian

We have held a few family functions at this hotel and the service, attention to detail has always been fantastic . We recently held a birthday party in the function room and we were looked after from start to finish . The function room is a lovely place to hold a celebration in and has a lovely atmosphere in and around the hotel . We will be back soon for our next celebration ! We can’t thank the staff enough especially Shelia who looked after us all evening 👍🏼

We got married here nearly two weeks ago and everything was amazing from start to finish. Donna was fantastic during the booking and planning process, noting was too much trouble. On the day, Katie and the team were the best. Always checking to make sure we were doing ok, and that everything was as we wanted it. The food was delicious, everyone cleared their plates and the service was fantastic. We had the most amazing day in a beautiful hotel with wonderful staff who go above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect. Just wish we could do it all again. Thank you

Food lovely, lacking in service and cleanliness, the tables not wiped and floors not vacuumed. Our room had no hand wash and was dusty in places. Dead flies on window sills not cleaned away. We stayed in the annex away from the hotel, no umbrellas available for us to use walking across the car park in the rain. Attention to detail lacking. Apart from minor details we had a good time.

What an amazing day we had yesterday! The Higher Trapp is a beautiful setting for a wedding. Myself and John were balled over with everything Matt and his wonderful team did. Nothing was too much trouble - (special mention to the lovely lady behind the bar, who went above and beyond to help my sister in law with her children). The food was delicious, the hog roast in the evening was a big hit with everyone. The reccommend DJ was FANTASTIC, highly, highly reccommend you book him. Thank you so much for giving us a memorable day! �

We cannot recommend the Higher Trapp highly enough as a wedding venue. We knew we wanted to get married here as soon as we saw the venue and met the team at a wedding open evening. From booking the team have been great; always getting back to us quickly with any queries and helped us put together a package that was perfect for us. Jamie and his team were great letting us set up the day before as they didn't have a wedding on that day. They made sure their maintenance guy was available in helping us put up some decorations at high level and they made us feel at ease. Matt was great in going through our requirements for the day. Matt and his team really excelled on the day; making sure everything ran to plan but they weren't over powering either. They cleared our decor and boxed it up at the end of the nighy but saved us a lot of hassle. A lot of our guests commented on how accommodating the team were. The food was delicious. We had stuffed mushrooms, roast beef and mango and passion fruit meringue. The meal portions were just right and the children were also catered for with half portions. The venue is beautiful. The grounds are stunning and we managed to get some good photos outside when it stopped raining. The inside of the venue is also lovely and great for indoor photos too.

We ate dinner and breakfast with our girl with us and she even got a treat from the staff at breakfast with 2 sausages. We stayed in the annex and it was very warm so didn't get a great sleep but happy to pay the price for a good dog friendly hotel. Thank you to the staff you were great.

Second to none. We have just had our wedding this weekend and although it was the bride who was the star of the day, the hotel was then second. Firstly from the original consultation with Donna who left no stone unturned and showed us all options to Jamie and his team were very thorough in the detailing and nothing was too much trouble. We were updated and consulted on the day and it certainly took the stress away. The wedding breakfast was incredible and we thoroughly recommend the shortcake dessert. The bridal suite was also a bonus and the champagne on ice at the end of the night was a nice touch. If we could do it all again we would certainly do it at this hotel and can’t wait to return for our anniversary next year. Mr & Mrs Edwards

Well, what a venue.We had our wedding yesterday and were stunned at the level of service, professionalism and friendliness that The Higher Trapp offered. From booking Donna took the lead and sorted everything out for us constantly going out of her way right up until the last day.Katie was the lead for the wedding and worked her absolute bottom off all day. She was non stop from start to finish and managed to get everything perfect and just how we wanted. She even managed to make it snow and dragged us our wellies out so we could go and have a play and some photos.I would highly recommend this venue to anyone, for an event, wedding or just a nice meal. Thank you for making it the most memorable day of our lives. We’ll surely be sending you the photos once they come throughMr & Mrs Hope.

I had the Fish&Chips which I enjoyed& my Hubby had the Gammon which he didn't enjoy that much, said it wasn't cooked enough. But it hasn't put us off. I then had the Lemon Tart which was really nice :-D..A few glasses of wine later I was very happy. Hope to pay you a visit again sometime. Thanks..Cheryll&Paul.

It's the people that make the hotel as good as it is. The room was present and comfortable. The braised lamb shank on the evening meal had good flavour but was tough as leather - it should drop off the bone (buy the cook a slow cooker so the required braise time is not a problem)

We had the most amazing wedding day on the 8th July and am literally only just coming down from it all! The venue is stunning especially if your as lucky as we were to get married in the pagoda outside on a beautiful summer's day.The best thing about this venue though has to be the wonderful staff! From start to finish the attention to detail and assistance with anything I needed was second to none, on the day my wedding co coordinator was the lovely Dan (first class and needs a massive pay rise) � My bridesmaids will vouch that I am a bit of a diva and control freak who needs everything EXACTLY how I have it in mind so Dan thank you so much for keeping me calm, relaxed and taking control of everything you were literally amazing! We can't wait to return back to this beautiful place to enjoy our anniversary next year. Thanks again Karli & Mark Ellis xxx

Thanks also to Donna for all her help in the run up to the wedding, she was there to answer even my most silly of questions and put me at ease. We couldn't have wished for a better day, everything was perfect. Also specialthanks to our Dj Johnny who was so helpful and friendly and made our evening reception perfect. A lot of our guests hadn't been to the hotel before and they all loved it and commented what a beautiful venue it was with great food and fantastic service. We got married outside under the pagoda which is the most perfect setting for a wedding, I would recommend Higher Trapp to anyone, also we had our little dog Millie with us during the wedding which as well as the beautiful setting and lovely welcome from Donna when we first visited the hotel was a key reason for booking our wedding here. We will definitely be back for visits as I'm sure some of our guests will too.

A special thanks to Katie who ran the day perfectly and managed to keep us well informed as to what was happening and when. We had guests staying the night who have stated the accommodation was amazing as was the food. The food during the wedding breakfast and evening reception was great too. We can not thank Katie and all the staff more, for what one guest said, was the best wedding they had ever been too. Thank you so so much.

Spent the night at this Hotel for the first time last night I was treating my Mum who has a mobility problem so I asked for a ground floor room. I was told yes they could accommodate us with one. We were disappointed though to find out this was not in the Hotel but in an Annexe which for Mum was quite a long way to walk. So we were in there on our own.!! We were impressed with the Duty Manager Daniel he was very pleasant and accommodating. The food was average , the setting of the Hotel is very pleasant especially for a wedding. The Hotel was clean and our room was warm and comfortable just a shame we felt isolated !!!!

My wife was given a groupon voucher for her birthday. Having never been to the Higher Trapp we were looking forward to a nice meal. The starter was ok but the roast beef was just like it had come out of a packet of sliced beef with gravy on it. It wasn't the best meal I've had. Staff were excellent by the way.

Thank you so much for giving us the most amazing wedding day! The guests had travelled far to be with us, some from as far as Essex and Winchester, and the team made everyone so welcome. The accommodation was brilliant, breakfast superb, dinner the night before was so tasty an uncle from Essex wants to know the secret recipe to the Rag Pudding! Special thanks to Donna and Megan for coordinating the wedding so brilliantly, and to Katie for managing the day with absolutely not one thing missed. Also to Ryan the DJ who got everyone up dancing! The food was incredible, and the catering and bar staff were amazing! Thank you so much for making our day so wonderful and relaxed, and for making it in the words of one of the guests the 'best wedding ever!'

We got married here on 27th May 2016 and had an absolutely amazing time. Every part of the process was made easier for us and Donna really looked after us during the whole planning and booking of the wedding from recommending suppliers for us to use. On the day Katie and Jamie were fantastic and worked tirelessly to make sure us and our guests were happy. Every guest I spoke to commented on the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. We really can't thank you enough for making our special day extra special, including making sure that Debra the Zebra got her breakfast and morning paper! Thanks againMr & Mrs Lyons (Hannah & And)Xxx

We got married at the Higher Trapp on the 21st Jan 2016 and we really can't thank the staff enough. From the moment we booked it, right through to us checking out a couple of days after the wedding, we were thoroughly looked after. In preparation for the wedding when we spoke to Donna, she was always so helpful and informative and always kept us up-to-date with what she would be doing and what we needed to do. If we needed to know anything I felt that I could contact her and it was never too much trouble and we would always get a quick reply. The day before the big day, we met Katie who made us feel so welcome and relaxed and again nothing was too much trouble. Katie was back at the hotel the morning of the wedding and along with all the other staff, made our day run so much more smoothly than we could ever imagine. It's as though every member of staff were always one step ahead of us and they each knew what their role was throughout the day. Everybody was polite, helpful and so professional. The reception staff really were second to none and we honestly felt like we were part of the 'Higher Trapp Family'. All of our guests commented on the politeness, professionalism and how relaxed the staff made you feel and I am pretty certain you will be getting some returning guests from our wedding party as well as ourselves. Our day was relaxed, organised and absolutely perfect and none of that would of been possible without every single member of staff at the Higher Trapp Hotel from Donna and Katie to all the reception staff, the waitors, waitresses and bar staff on the day, the staff who served us all breakfast the morning after and the house keeping staff who returned a number of items to us that they found we had left in the rooms. So from the newly weds, thank-you so much for making every minute of our special day perfect!

We were meant to stay here at the weekend but as the road was flooded we couldn't get there. Customer service at the hotel were fabulous and very understanding and refunded us immediately. You can't beat that. We will be back in better weather to stay x

Just had our amazing Halloween themed wedding. The staff went all out to accommodate our whacky wishes, even carved some pumpkins to help out with our decorations, then decorated themselves to be in keeping with the atmosphere. Jamie was a legend, making sure the day ran smoothly and always asking if we were OK or needed anything. Then there was the venue itself which sells itself send needs no additional sell xxx

Recently had a three night break at the Higher Trapp, our 1st 2 nights were in the main hotel with fantastic views over the grounds and the last night was in the courtyard rooms a short distance away from the hotel and was a fantastic room, very bright and modern with views over the gardens. The room was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The staff at the hotel could not do enough for you and made you feel very welcome. The area around the hotel has some great villages and towns that are only a short drive away. All in all a great trip and would definitely stay at the Higher Trapp when we visit Lancashire again.
