Having stayed at the Riverhill over some 10 years I recently returned for a company Christmas dinner and also stayed the night. The rooms have all been refurbished and are very smart. The meal was good considering they were catering for several large groups. The previous critic who complained about elderly guests and serious staff is just showing how vacuous... More

I had never been here before but had heard it was rather nice and even a bit 'posh'...went along to a Christmas get together with work and I certainly wouldn't say it was nice or 'posh'!!! It is tired, dated and just elderly. The clientele were of the older generation and obviously enjoying their evenings out. The staff were all... More

Dear Guest , I would like to thank you for your feed back. A number of our clientele do tend to be mature and most have been loyal customers to the hotel and restaurant for 40 years. The staff may seem serious but we would say that they are professional . We are known as a more formal restaurant and... More

Also a proper kettle with a china tea pot (nice touch if you require more... More

Two friends and I stayed here for one night. We was in the area to do some sight seeing and this was the only hotel available. When we arrived the manager and staff were all very very polite and could not do enough for us. We soon realised that the hotel had a good reputation for food as people were... More

very good value for money. delicious dinner at the restaurant, pleasant service. good attention to detail. would recommend without hesitation if you are in need of a place to stay in Birkenhead or even Liverpool, which is only a 10 minute train journey or short drive away.

Plenty of parking and very friendly and chatty welcome, an excellent well provided room which overlooked the lawn.As we were eating out we did not require the restaurant but it looked quite acceptable with several people arriving from outside to...

Trying to find a hotel on the day of the Liverpool/Everton derby was like pulling teeth, fortunately Steve at Riverhill managed to work some magic for us and we ended up with exactly what we wanted. Lovely comfy beds, great full english breakfast and a warm welcome. If I had to find a criticism, our bathroom could do with a... More

Great venue with parking, food good but very old fashioned, if this place were more contemporary and the menu more exciting i'm sure they would be bursting at the seams. Even the head waiter was terribly old fashioned, come on Riverhill get with it!!!!
