The Last Drop Village Hotel & Spa: A Destination, Not just a Hotel-Review: April 2019
The Last Drop Village Hotel & Spa, located on the edge of the beautiful West Pennine moors, whose origins date back to farm buildings from the 17th century, is now a four-star hotel, Spa & experience.
In 1964 owner Carlton Walker, was offered “the last drop” of a bottle of wine, to mark the completion and celebrations of the restaurant, hence the hotels current name.
The Last drop Village Hotel & Spa, is set within beautiful grounds, and you may even spot a bit of wildlife too, but this is more than just a hotel it’s a destination.
The executive package is well worth the upgrade, as this includes perks such as welcome drinks, Lilly O’Brien’s chocolates, bottled water, extra toiletries, robes & slippers all to make your stay extra special.
Fun without the rum at Turtle Bay Blackburn – Review: October 2018
Bring on the good vibes, without the booze, at Blackburn’s Turtle Bay located in the Cathedral quarter development.
Follow the bold bright lights and make Turtle Bay your “One Love”. Plenty of warm welcomes from the GM Heather, Abs, Ben, Shania and all the team, who did a fab job looking after us all evening.
The bar offers a chilled casual Caribbean style service, why not wrap your lips around a can of super refreshing ting, the national Caribbean soft drink or opt for a non-alcoholic cocktail and staff will shake things up. The lush Virgin Kolada a fab frozen blend of coconut milk, coconut syrup and pineapple juice. The Virgin Passion Punch was packed with fresh passion fruit, lemon & orange juices.
Gioia Blackburn Restaurant Review: March 2018
Newly launched in November 2017, Gioia located in Blackburn town centre is an Italian inspired Café Bar, that is an ideal hub, to catch up with friends, family or work colleagues.
An illuminated bar, awaits your arrival, so why not soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a pre-dinner mocktail or two. My strawberry mojito mocktail was light, fresh, fruity and fabulous.
Turtle Bay Blackburn New Menu Review: May 2017
Boom! Back again at Blackburn’s Turtle Bay for some cool Caribbean chilled vibes. News of the new menu has spread fast and this exciting foodie news really had my taste buds tingling. Shown to our seating, we were greeted by the lovely Jacob, one of the brands senior management figures, who spent some time speaking with us. However, Jacob soon had to head off, as he clearly adopts a hands-on management style, as throughout the evening he got stuck in with the team, helping them with everything from serving meals, organising the pass and cleaning cutlery – Amazing!
Turtle Bay Blackburn Review: April 2017
Trinidad to Tobago, Bahamas to Blackburn’s Turtle Bay where you can sample your very own heat of the Caribbean without having to pack your suitcase and minus the airfare. Welcomed by our server, aka Jamaica’s Jamming Jordan, I knew this visit was going to be hot! Décor colourful, inviting with beach wood style tables and even shack style toilets. Jamming reggae music playing the likes of the classic Bob Marley. The mix of décor, music, happy vibes and atmosphere got me in the summer mood, so the shades went on and it was time to taste some creative cocktails – Caribbean style.
