we booked this last minute as we got a cheaper flight from Liverpool & still saved on the price of our flight if we flew from Manchester. It was ridiculously cheap & so didn't expect much & we were only stopping 1 night so we thought we would check in, get some food & get our heads down for our 3am rise for the airport 5 mins away. HOW WRONG WERE WE!!!!!!!!
This place beats most star rated hotel/b & bs, it was previously a pub & they've done a fab job with the refurb, we didnt get to bed till gone midnight & we were certainly the worse for wear :-) this place is sooooo friendly, the staff & locals who drink in the bar make you feel so welcome & include you in their company so we decided to have a couple, (big mistake) that COUPLE turned in to A LOT :-) well, they were so friendly we forgot what the time was & how much we were drinking.
Ellen behind the bar was lovely & so helpful, her son John also works the bar & they will tell you or help you any way they can, the check in was easy & quick & we also got a complimentary bottle of wine compliments of the management (thanks Ian & Jan), we were shown to our room & the kitchen & bathroom was pointed out to us, to say we were surprised is an understatement, yes you share a bathroom, not a problem, they are right outside your room door & all you need to shower is there free of charge, the kitchen is fully stocked with a free continental breakfast, unlimited coffee/tea in kitchen during your stay, cereals, fresh fruit, you can help yourself at whatever time of the day during your stay.
If you want a cooked breakfast i think its an extra £3.50 but its huge & well worth the money, the dining room is clean and welcoming & is situated at the other side from the bar which would have been the vault in its "pub days" the food is home made & delicious & so cheap they even do an offer is an adult buys a meal, the kids eat for just £1...... YES £1...... ridiculous!!! although i do think this is going up slightly & so it should.
We retired to bed with a promise from Ellen that she would give us a wake-up call early hours to catch our flight, bless her & she did, & its a good job, we most definitely would have slept in, so thank you Ellen :-)
The airport is only a 5 min drive from the hotel & a train station 2 mins away.
We planned on driving straight back to Manchester on our return from Majorca but enjoyed our stay here we emailed them before our return to the U.K & we were booked in again in the same family room, they didnt disappoint, again so helpful & friendly, even the locals remembered us & asked if we were moving in :-)
They have entertainment on at weekends & i believe they are fantastic so i think maybe a girlie weekend will have to be planned in the future....
I would recommend this place to everyone (already have) you cannot hear the bar noise upstairs so great for families too & ideal for groups of lads/girls planning on clubbing in the town, train station takes you to the center & i believe the taxi fare back is reasonable so go on, price it up & if your happening to be passing through Liverpool book in here, if your after 5stars dont bother, pay the extra!!!! if its a clean down to earth friendly cheap local hotel then you will love this little gem. we will definitely be returning, thanks guys. (ann-marie & mark) :-)
