We have spent 2 nights here and although the hotel is a bit dated, the beds are clean and comfortable, the shower is strong and hot and the food is delicious. Our room was not air conditioned, but we just left the window open which was fine.

I stayed for one night on a Saturday night a week ago. The hotel is set in lovely grounds next to the River Mersey. One thing that really impressed me was the friendliness of all the staff – from the reception to the bar and restaurant through to the leisure club and even the cleaning and hospitality staff. The room... More

We held our daughters Christening Party at the hotel on Sunday 6/7/14. The Service from Laura in Events was second to none, she was exceptionally helpful and very accommodating to our wishes and needs to make the day feel special for us and our guests. The meal which we picked for our guests was the Carvery and all our guests... More

We held our daughters Wedding Reception at the Waterside yesterday. Great planning by Laura. Exceptional service by all the staff with a special mention to Steven who looked after us all day. Food was first class really tasty. We would definitely recommend the venue. Thanks to everyone concerned. Bridle suite very comfortable?

From the moment you walk into the Waterside Hotel it's obvious that more effort has been put into the health club and restaurant than the hotel. This means that the breakfast is great, the health facilities are all you could ask for but the rooms are small, the bathroom dated and the shower more of a dribble. Would recommend if... More

We have just returned from Sunday Lunch which for the price was excellent. Well cooked and presented. Very reasonable price at £6.95 for the main course choice and £4 for starters and desserts. Tables set with starched table linen. Unfortunately for the restaurant there were only 4 of us dining. It is advertised as a buffet but we were served... More

Reception and greeting ..poor and not professional . Room was small and did not have a king sized bed as we had requested. It was rough around the edges. The whole experience was akin to staying in a student hostel. To sum our up our experience - the phone rang at 10.15 pm. just as we were nodding off. It... More

Booked this as it had a gym, the parking was free and it was close to the office and the cost was reasonable. The room was functional but nothing special. The bathroom and fittings are very tired and the exposed brickwork in the bedroom is a bit of an eyesore. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was hot.... More
