We attended a family wedding at the Whitehall and it's a very pretty, traditional venue. It feels opulent without being pretentious and we found the staff to be very helpful throughout. The rooms are nicely done, if ready for a bit of TLC, and the beds very comfortable. Overall, it was a good venue for a wedding or other occasion,...

I purchased two vouchers as gifts at Christmas time for two different people for afternoon tea. . Tried to book in before the voucher expires in 5 week's time and was given an option of one date and one time! This date was unfortunately not convenient. My vouchers say Monday to Saturday but the manager said it had changed now...

Well me and the wife were spending the weekend in this holel going to a wedding. When we got there the customer service was amazing, very welcoming and helpful. However, when we got to the room it was very dated to say the least, the shower was just about a trickle and the bed felt like it would fall apart...

Visited this prestigious hotel for Afternoon Tea. We were seated at very low coffee tables not dining tables. Can honestly say it was not at all what we expected and we have had lots of different afternoon teas. The dainty finger sandwiches which we hoped to have were thick crusty bread sandwiches more like "doorstoppers". The scones were OK but...

Went for a cream tea with unlimited coffee and tea. The service was fantastic and so chilled to talk. Beautiful inside and clean. Will return for a meal as very impressed. I got a voucher off groupon and it was a good day out with fantastic company. Settings nice for a walk later.

Visited the Whitehall hotel today with my mother for afternoon tea. We were lucky enough to find a special offer on groupon. I have been for several afternoon teas previously and by far this was the best! Everything was absolutely delicious, the cakes and breads all home made, the lavender shortbread was to die for and my never ending cups...

I visited here with my mum for afternoon tea and we had such a lovely relaxing afternoon. The selection of sandwiches, cakes and tea's was all wonderful and the room was warm and cosy with a beautiful view. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, we will definitely return it was just what the doctor ordered!

I'm l really glad that I got a Groupon for the afternoon tea which my girlfriend and I had because if I'd have had to of paid full price for it then I would have been pretty annoyed. The mucky, unpeeled carrot garnish that is in the picture I've included is of something that was used to 'decorate' the afternoon...

Ask a question

I have been looking at your hotel as a potential venue, however my concern seen by my partner to a recent reviews about poor service where of no great concerns given peoples differing opinions.

However my one major area of concern is with your apparent substandard food hygiene rating as identified on ratings.food.gov.uk/business/en-GB/212113/Whitehall-Hotel-Darwen by the local council

The site rates your establishment as a 2 – Improvement necessary at the date of inspection on the 03 August 2016

Area inspected by food safety officer Standards found

Hygienic food handling - Hygienic handling of food including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage - Generally satisfactory

Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building - Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building (including having appropriate layout, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control) to enable good food hygiene - Improvement necessary

Management of food safety - System or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future. -Generally satisfactory

What can you do as a potential visitor to alleviate my concerns of not becoming ill due to your poor food preparation standards especially around the

Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building which was reported as “Improvement necessary”?

Can you advise of why such a highly rated venue would achieve such a low score?

Can you confirm what improvements you have made?

Can you ensure your food preparation is of a standard rather than of a dodgy back street café or take-away?
