Stanley House Hotel & Spa

Stanley House Hotel is a stunning, award winning hotel, set in 54 acres of Ribble Valley countryside in Mellor, Lancashire. With 30 first-class bedrooms, unrivalled wedding and conference facilities, the stylish Grill on the Hill restaurant, the hugely popular Mr Fred's bar and lounge and a world-class spa, Stanley House is truly a hotel like no other.

Guests of Stanley House Hotel have a great choice when it comes to our hotel rooms. Our luxury accommodation is split over two spectacular buildings and includes 30 bedrooms.

The Manor House
Our Grade II listed house comprises 12 large individually designed bedrooms, all with fantastic countryside views. Originally the manor house of Mellor, this building has been restored to its former glory and houses a serene private reception area, featuring a magnificent Inglenook fireplace, complete with wood burning stove. These 12 rooms won an Enjoy England for Excellence Award in 2004 for their character and specification.

Woodland Rooms
We added 18 newly constructed bedrooms in 2012 called the Woodlands Rooms. Each luxury room is 36 sq.m and boasts a range of technological advances including a media hub and an in-safe laptop charging facility, along with large flat-screen TVs and complimentary WiFi. A walk-in shower and separate double ended bath also features in each room. The rural theme is reflected throughout the interior design providing a seamless transition from outside to inside.

A suite, family rooms and a dedicated disabled accessible room with twin bathrooms are also available.

For some, the Spa at Stanley House Hotel provides a helping of relaxation away from the stresses of today. For others, a place to enjoy an unrivalled luxury self-indulgent experience. But for all, the Spa at Stanley Houses symbolises an exceptional lifestyle choice whether paying a visit as a local guest or as part of a destination break at the hotel.

Stanley House Hotel and Spa has scooped national recognition, being awarded an exceptional five bubble rating following an independent review from the Good Spa Guide.
