I really enjoy my stays here. Staff are welcoming both in the hotel and the spa. I visited the hotel bar for the first time during this stay. It was very busy and the staff were brilliant. Highly recommended

I've stayed in a few hotels on Wirral and this one is my preferred. Situated away from the main road nestling in its own gardens and surrounded by mature trees, the peace and quiet cannot be beaten elsewhere. Comfortable cosy rooms, modern and tastefully decorated. Breakfast in the conservatory overlooking the lawns and flowers makes for a relaxing start to... More

Spent a very pleasant overnight stay and spa day with my mum and sister at this hotel. Our package included dinner, bed and breakfast in the hotel, use of the spa and a choice of one 30 minute treatment each. Good value.

The spa was nice but the waitor was rude and made me feel bad for being coeliac. We ended up eating elsewhere. Our room had a broken shower so we were "upgraded" to a room with a smaller bed and it was very cold. We had an evening meal where the gluten free bread was burnt to a crisp i... More
