Award Celebration for the Gibbon Bridge Hotel

02 Feb 2016

The Gibbon Bridge Hotel’s award-winning streak has continued into 2016 after reaching the finals of the prestigious LBV Red Rose Awards.

2015 saw the independently-owned country hotel scoop a string of gongs including North West in Bloom’s Glass Trophy, a gold award for ‘Best Large Accommodation and Grounds,’ and Lancashire’s Best Kept Hotel in the Best Kept Village Award.

Now proprietor Janet Simpson, and her hard-working team, have been shortlisted for the Tourism and Leisure Business Award.

The category is sponsored by 3ManFactory – a creative design and communications company based in Preston – and open to businesses and venues within the tourism, leisure, sports, hospitality and entertainment markets.

Winners of the Red Rose Awards will be announced on March 10th.

"Exceptionally Enjoyable"

The effort, care and love that has been lavished on Gibbon Bridge by you and your staff is plain for all to see, experience and enjoy.  However, what we particularly wanted to record is the exceptional quality of your staff.  Your team is, without doubt, the very best I have had the pleasure to meet and to be looked after by.  I have been a corporate member of the Hotel Catering & Institutional Management Association since 1973.  Over the years I have visited and worked with numberous hotels all over the UK.  The team at Gibbon Bridge are the best of all those that I have experienced.  First and foremost, being friendly, caring and professional and, by being well trained and, importantly, well led.  You are to be heartily congratulated.

"Wedding Venue"

We stayed at this hotel for two nights to celebrate our friends wedding. The room was magnificent! On two floors with a lounge and bathroom on the ground floor and a massive bedroom with a super king size 4 poster bed upstairs. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous with a water feature, a pergola for the ceremony, and a little river running at the bottom. The food was excellent and the service impeccable. Janet Simpson the owner must be the hardest working lady in the world, she gets stuck in and helps make the lovely breakfasts. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. This is the place to get married, if you want to do it properly!
