Thanks to The Greyhound Hotel Leigh to make my fathers day weekend so bad.
First when we checked in asked for a late checkout and about the pool they had a private party which is fine, okay having a private party today we will enjoy it tomorrow (thoughts).
Trying to get to the room the lift is not working, right another set back had to go up the steps with the bags and baby pram, as getting into the room the room is completely outdated.
Next day comes we trying to get to the pool the pool is closed !!!
and to finish even in a better way we had to leave early because on Sunday's they don't do late checkouts and no one else told as when we did check-in.
Thanks again for destroying my father's day with my family

The double room cost £50 so I wasn't expecting ultimate luxury . I have stayed here before so that must give some indication that its not all bad. The room is warm and spacious with immaculate white bedding. The mattress isn't top quality feather and fully sprung , but it does a good night sleep . The bathroom was spotless clean and again quote a good size . Wardrobe spacious and plenty of coat hangers. Lovely long unit to put my suitcase on and well lit dressing table area don't expect loads of biscuits and coffee and you won't be disappointed. Some noise from the main road outside but I didn't think it was overly intrusive. I slept in the wing over looking the pub car park. Staff we friendly in arrival .so it is a good quality for the room rate from me

Tired hotel. My room had a window that would not shut and corrosion around the tap. Door was a bit of a mess. No provision for deaf people in case of fire alarm. Having said this the hotel is conveniently placed for travel in the area. It has a large car park. The staff looked a bit tired of working there but I can say they were trying really hard to be helpful. And for that they should be congratulated.
I would stay there again if I was in the area as the cost did reflect the conditions.

I've known the Greyhound hotel for many years, as I lived in Leigh for 23 years. Back in the 80's it had such an amazing reputation, silver service and the like.
Today though I've got to say, why haven't you updated the hotel since then? It has the same dark wood furniture. Which I have no issues with but decor is in dire need of repair and a lick of paint.
Everything has been done on the cheap, from the tiny TV to the cheap toilet paper.
We are here in the hotel for 5 nights and at a cost of enough to give us as paying guest better quality toilet paper.
I would like to say that the bed is comfortable though and the place is always clean.
I beg The greyhound hotel to listen to your guest (previous reviews are on the same lines) and take action! As I say I've been coming here for years visiting family in the area and feel now I need to say my piece.

Amazing place! The housekeeping does a fantastic job while Nastasha and her team are extremely cooperative at the desk. The hotel has an well stocked bar and ample parking space too. I was here for the Ironman Bolton UK and the swim begins at the Pennington Flash which is at a decent distance from here. Loved the stay and most recommended.

Wow, where to begin with this little gem , lost in the 80s. The people who own this place (sporting lodge apparently) should be , and probably are utterly ashamed of the place. The staff try their best and are nice enough, but this place needs starting again. If ypu want to see what hotels looked like 40 years ago, and serve yourself a cold breakfast , it may have some merit .

I’ve stayed in cheaper hotels that have been better. There was so much wrong with this hotel, do not be fooled by the entrance. Modern marble flooring on approach, ugly dirty red carpets in bedrooms. It’s like once you go through the double doors, you enter an older century. On opening our room door, there was a white stain on the carpet, the carpet is dirty/stained, we could hear something dripping (the shower) which on use of- was bloody cold on the hot setting, near the sink has a hole that’s been barely covered up, a lick of paint would have done no harm, and would have resulted in one less complaint. The furniture is older than my great great great grandparents and definitely unnecessary, there was a broken socket in which the electrics are. This one particularly shows absolutely no regards to the visitors- my stay was with 2 young children, imagine if we weren’t so observant and they stuck their fingers in it. One of the windows was stuck permanently open due to a broken- well none existent handle, letting in the cast of bugs life in, the sofa in the room was strained, meant to be light brown more like chocolate brown in sections.
Finally just to top of my oh so lovely visit, it absolutely stunk of musk. Like the century it should have stayed in.

Very disappointed with the whole experience. Arrived only to be given a key to an occupied room. The receptionist was very apologetic but the damage was done. The room I was eventually given was on the top floor. The room was tired and in desperate need of decorating and it smelt terrible. I have since found out the hotel had been housing the homeless during the pandemic.
I had to complain to the staff at breakfast as a young lad handled the bacon and sausages. As no one was supervising the hot food counter. So I had to reprimand the lad for not using the food tongs. Needless to say I won't be stay at this hotel again.

You get what you pay for with this place. We only stayed for 1 night and definitely wouldn't have stayed another. The bed was uncomfortable and the pillows were flat. The whole place could do with a massive touch-up. The restaurant/bar was manned by kids who were more interested in their phones than in serving. We ordered food which was from the taste of it from a local Chinese, the chips were flat and very salty. We got a refund on our breakfast as did a lot of other customers. Some of the reception staff were spot-on and helpful but overall we couldn't wait to get out. They also advertised a swimming pool and spa but none of these was open.
