The Whitehall Hotel

A majestic Victorian manor house lovingly transformed into a traditional country house hotel in Darwen.  The Whitehall Hotel dates back to 1898 and enjoys many period features from the sandstone frontage to the panelled sweeping staircase, decorative ceilings and an open fireplace complemented by an impressive 16 foot chandelier.  

The foundations of the house are as solid as the pursuit of customer care.  The privately owned hotel takes pride in a professional and unobtrusive service.  ​​A comfortable bar and lounge area, features original stained glass windows which look out onto the courtyard.  Either sit back and relax in the cosy sofas or explore the landscaped gardens and the woodland beyond.
