My wife and I, from Zimbabwe, had the pleasure of spending three nights at Hoylake Inn. Hosts Laura and Kim went out of their way to give us a very warm welcome and to make us feel at home.

The place is filthy, their ironing room is even worse, we were given sour/rotten food. We complained on Monday again on Wednesday they gave us rotten food. One of their employees told us that they usually give black guest rotten food, but give whites fresh food.We even reported to the travel agency that booked for us.

My dear guest We were dismayed to read your vitriolic review, especially after we had gone to so much trouble to try to accommodate your many, meticulous, dietary requirements. Once we understood your needs, we did try our level best to offer you food more specific to your culture. However, we could not be held responsible if you were unable... More

The owners are very accommodating and gave us great advice on restaurants to go to and places to see. The rooms are large and comfortable, the decor elegant and the views from... More
