The Astley Bank Hotel and Conference Centre is located in Darwen with Blackburn and has been in operation since 1997. In that time it has gained a reputation as one of the premier hotels and conference centres in the North West and has won the Lancashire Life award for Hotel of the Year.

This reputation has been built on providing an excellent service within the beautiful surroundings of a superbly maintained nineteenth-century Mansion House.
