We have been to theSefton on many occasions with Just Go hoidays. We find it is very good value for money. We always ask for room 58 and we usually get it. The management and staff are very pleasant and helpful. The food is very good and the view from the room is an extra bonus We hope to go... More

Our room was reasonably spacious and had the most wonderful balcony view of the bay. Food was generally better than satisfactory, generously portioned and was ably served by Craig our waiter, who went out of his way to make our stay a happy one. The decorations in the room were in need of refurbishment, but was kept spotlessly clean by... More

I have read through most of the reviews and I wonder how much people paid for the holiday as we paid £59 each for 3 nights dinner, bed and breakfast and for that I think it was brilliant. You don't pay that price and expect too much. We had a lovely room with fantastic sea view, very clean, maybe a... More

Value for money, unbeatable. Staff were efficient and helpful, meals were more than satisfactory and were served promptly and accurately. The room was amazingly spacious ( a rare thing these days) you could stretch out in the bath, and the icing on the cake was an unbeatable sea view. Overall I can't fault the place and would thoroughly recommend it.

We returned from the Sefton last Monday,after having a great weekend. Lovely area with some nice walks. We found the food and service to be very good and have no complaints. The room was clean and tidy with great sea views. The evening entertainment was really quite good with friendly staff and guests. Being picky,the tv channel choice is very... More

After reading some of the reviews we were apprehensive about staying at the Sefton but I have to agree with Anne 187047 and Mary D. Don't think the 'disappointed' people stayed in the same hotel as us! We booked a 3 night stay - bed, breakfast and evening meal and took the option of paying an extra £15.00 to get... More
