Stayed two nights while working in the area. Hotel was clean and tidy and staff were friendly and polite. The room was ok but the air con unit was noisy - you could hear them start up in other rooms at night too. A big plus was the free wifi. The major leg down was the hot food in the... More

Stayed here for one night, when we arrived the WiFi wasn't working but the moment they got it running again we got a free upgrade so faster internet :-) Room was clean, breakfast basic but good value for money.

Hard to find as Postcode not corresponding with direction into the hotel. Bright airy reception, clean and tidy rooms, lovely breakfast which includes scrambled egg, sausage and beans plus lots of other lovely things to eat as much as you want.

Ive stayed here several times before and it always meets the bill. Whole building clean and bright. The staff are pleasant and check in was quick and easy, even though I was some 3 hours before official booking in time. Room wasnt large but more than adequate, it was clean and the furnishings were in good condition. Central heating/air con... More

Having stayed in the HI in Runcorn recently, I hoped my next experience would be better. It was but not by much. As this hotel is a HI Express, the services offered are not quite the same as a full HI. Having said that, my main problem is still the WiFi. It is no better and is quite frankly ridiculously...

The negative is the immediate surroundings; behind a petrol station, so definitely not scenic! My colleague suffered a bit from road noise at the front of the hotel, but my room was at the back, and apart from a bit of noise from the occasional train, this was a comfortable nights rest. Friendly reception staff, good free breakfast. Ideal for... More
