We've just returned from a one-night stay at this wonderful guest house and feel like we're hard done by coming home! A charming guest house with massive rooms, top of the range bedding and outfitting, spotlessly clean and with wonderful food. There there were the proprietors, Mike and Bernie Heaton, what lovely people and so welcoming and friendly.
The guest house is split out over three floors, we booked two rooms, one for us and one for a friend. We had been looking to just book a Travelodge room but as there was a football match on in Liverpool these were fully booked - and thank goodness they were! This gem of a guest house was the find of the century and we'll definitely be going back. The beds were so comfy, the bedding was immaculate and soft and squishy, making you feel like you were sinking into bliss. The beds were super-king size so there was plenty of room for both of us. There was a top of the range TV in the room, large cupboard and the bathroom has a large double-sized shower cubicle which for me was quite luxurious compared to my single size shower. They provided tea making facilties in the room and had a hair dryer, which I was quite surprised by as I normally have to take my own. Lovely expensive soap in the bathroom and the towels were plentiful - no expense spared to make their guests feel invited.
We were given a choice of what time we wanted breakfast and the breakfast was hearty, with cereals and a full English breakfast on offer and the coffee kept on coming. I was expecting a buffet breakfast but they take your order and everything is made fresh, to your specifications. There was a TV to watch the news whilst you were eating but with three of us we were just chatting whilst eating.
I would have loved to have been able to take a stroll round the garden which we looked at through our bedroom window - it looked beautiflly kept with lots of interesting stautettes, lights and features to see, but I can imagine this was "family space" as Bernie and Mike have the ground floor.
Take my advice and stay here - you'll not get a better service anywhere else and the rate is pocket friendly too - I'd go so far as to say that they're under-charging given the excellent facilities and service. Thanks Mike and Bernie!
