We very much enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our room was furnished to a very high standard and was spotlessly clean. The meals were of the best quality we have had on a coach trip in Britain, and were served by pleasant and efficient staff. The entertainment was very enjoyable on the nights we were there, and the management... More

The Liston Hotel is not a modern "boutique" hotel, nor is it a bustling hive of activity. What it is, is a small lovely, quiet family run hotel where the owners/staff look after you. Our room was nicely furnished and had a balcony with a rattan settee and plenty of room to sit outside and relax. There was a good... More

Just came back from staying here for four nights, a very enjoyable stay. We opted to upgrade our room to a superior room with a balcony and it was definitely worth it. The room was immaculate, very spacious and having a balcony was fab. Staff all very friendly especially a Spanish man who worked on the bar, he was always... More

I spoke to... More

I gave this review 5 stars because of the warm welcome given, the position is in a quiet residential area, the quality of the superior rooms(extra), the staff, and the food . Even though it is looking a little frayed round the edges and there are several jobs that need doing it still deserves 5 stars and I would go... More

On arrival we were greeted by Diane who invited us into the bar where she served hot punch and hot mince pies. Here she... More
