With stunning views over the beautiful River Ribble, yet conveniently close to Preston town centre and the M6 Junction 31, Macdonald Tickled Trout Hotel has an ideal location. 

Following a £0.5 million refurbishment in 2013, the hotel has introduced a beautiful new Riverside Bar and Lounge where you can relax and enjoy a glass of wine from our extensive wine list or a well-deserved cup of Good Cup Coffee. Join us at the Scottish Steak House where imaginatively reworked Scottish favourites are passionately prepared by our world class chefs, using only the finest and freshest produce.

In addition a number of our bedrooms have been refurbished from top to bottom including beautiful new bathrooms and soft furnishings. The hotel has also retained many traditional features, such as wood beams in our restaurant and an open plan lounge, creating a warm and welcoming ambience.

Macdonald Tickled Trout is always a popular meetings venue due to our convenient location, well-equipped conference suites which have all just been fully refurbished and extensive onsite parking. Alternatively, our Riverside Terrace is the ideal place to enjoy a morning coffee with friends or relax with a pre-dinner drink as you take in the views across the River Ribble. Guests can enjoy our delicious food and drink and then relax in contemporary en suite accommodation, whilst our versatile function rooms are perfect for weddings.
