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.

Warmly welcomed by the ladies on reception, we headed up to our Executive double room.  Spacious and immaculate room presentation, a great start to our super spa stay.  The bedside area has a lamp, decent shelving unit and plenty of plugs for all your tech gadgets.

The desk entertainment area with flat screen television, can double up as an ideal work area, as there is also complimentary high-speed internet access, or as a vanity area. A logo embossed Last Drop Hotel notepad and pencil along with a well-appointed tea tray with coffee, tea and herbal teas was provided.

The contemporary bathroom included a sunken bathtub, overhead shower unit, heated towel unit, bidet and toilet.  Well designed and an ideal space for getting spruced up for dinner at the onsite Courtyard restaurant.
