We were staying as a group to celebrate a special birthday and life event. However, the hotel let itself down with poor service, disappointing quality of food and rooms in need of modernisation, especially the bathroom. Staff were pleasant enough but I shall definitely not be returning, compared to other establishments of a similar rating, I was left feeling cheated.

A return visit-a really good nights' sleep in a comfortable ground floor room. As it was weekend and we had not prebooked a time for dinner we were offered as residents either 6.45pm or 9.30pm as there were some large outside groups dining. We walked to the Caernarvon Castle nearby instead and inspite of it being heaving they got us... More

My family have just finished a 4 night stay at Riverhill at our recommendation, as we are local to Oxton. They were visiting from Ireland. They stayed in room 10 and were very much enamored with the everything about their stay. The room, the staff, the service and the general idillic surroundings of a quiet, leafy English village.

Having moved back to the area after 17 years we came for a meal on our wedding anniversary. The first thing to say is that food was good, unadventurous, but solid in a home cooking kind of way. The service was perfectly competent and we enjoyed ourselves. But there were a few things that chipped way at the overall experience.... More

Rather than stay in Liverpool and pay for a taxi under the Mersey to get to our main target, the Fraiche restaurant in Oxton, we decided to try out this hotel which is within easy walking distance. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, the room was decent enough if a bit on the small side, although very good value, and... More

Always a joy to dine in this restaurant. Lovely crisp, white linen; table set with range of wine glasses, also gleaming; drinks in the bar whilst you select from the menu, also a nice start. Staff are charming and nothing too much trouble. A wide choice from the menu, always beautifully presented. Trademark sweet trolley, a must. Thoroughly recommended for... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the Wirral Peninsula in its own peaceful grounds, this Victorian House Hotel is just 2 miles from Birkenhead, 4 miles from Liverpool and offers free Wi-Fi and on-site parking. Experienced hoteliers Nick and Michele Burn have owned the property since 1988, earning a gallery of industry awards in the process (including the prestigious Merseyside Small Hotel of the Year Award). They pride themselves on cultivating a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere coupled with friendly and attentive service. The highest 3-Star AA rated hotel in the Wirral area, the Hotel offers 14 en-suite rooms all of which are decorated and furnished to a very high standard. Each room includes free Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TV, direct dial telephone, hairdryer, and tea & coffee making facilities. For those special occasions, the Hotel also offers two luxurious four-poster rooms. The Restaurant offers a tantalising selection of culinary delights from their diverse range of ever-changing menus. With professional impeccable service, guests are free to enjoy their meal amidst the beautiful splendour of the views over-looking the pretty lawns and gardens at the front of the hotel. Afterwards, why not indulge in a coffee or liqueur in the comfort of the hotel cocktail lounge? Located on the Wirral Peninsula in Merseyside, the Hotel is just a 5 minute drive from the M53, 2 miles from Birkinhead and just 4 miles from Liverpool. With excellent transport links and free on-site parking, it is both convenient and accessible. For those flying in, Liverpool's John Lennon airport is just 13 miles away. Wirral is often referred to as 'the leisure peninsula' and with good reason. The coastline stretches for 25 miles and is perfect for a wide range of outdoor activities, from scenic coastal walks to sailing, cycling, angling and wind-surfing. Alternatively, explore the scenic beauty of the Wirral countryside whilst visiting one of its many picturesque villages or towns. For the less energetic, the Hotel is close to many other attractions such as: The Heritage Centre of Port Sunlight, The Williamson Art Gallery and Museum, The Ellesmere Port Boat Museum and Birkenhead Park. For sports fans, Liverpool is home to two of the Premiership's biggest football teams, or if golf is more your thing, practice your swing on one of the fourteen local courses, including the famous Royal Liverpool Golf Club. The cosmopolitan city of Liverpool offers a wealth of visitor's attractions, from its glorious maritime history to its world-class musical heritage. The Albert Dock, the second-most popular attraction in Great Britain, is home to the Maritime Museum, Tate Gallery, the Beatles Story, Animation World and scores of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. If that's not enough, then the vibrant city of Chester is less than an hour's drive away. ... more   less
