We reckon our stay here was better than booking into a Liverpool hotel. It offers Free Secureish parking. A... More

We tied the knot on Thursday 1st August 2013 and had a wonderful reception at Thistle. All 200 of our family, friends and guests were overwhelmed by the outstanding service and warm reception that Kath Robinson and her team accorded us. They even joined in with the traditional song and dance when the bride arrived! We put the poor chef... More

Stayed for just one night as part of a wedding party. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. All the staff I encountered were friendly and very attentive. The lady who seated everyone at breakfast was a delight, very cheerful and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent, full English as well as lighter alternatives. The only criticism I have is... More

We stayed 2 nights over the weekend of 11th and 12th July on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis as part of a small tour group. Arriving on Friday afternoon, the hotel was quiet, reception staff were welcoming and checked us in efficiently and quickly. We were pleased with our good sized modern 1st floor room featuring a sofa and... More
