Stayed at the Speke Resort and Conference Centre on a business trip. The rooms are nice but a bit bare and with a very odd layout including something which resembles a kitchen but is not. The only thing is that the room are not clean espcially the bathroom where the tiles looks like they have not been cleaned for a long time and had quite a few dead mosquitoes left smashed on them. One of the days my bathroom had not been cleaned but the house keeper denied this and said she had left the towels on the floor becasue she thought "this was the way I liked it" hmmmmmmm. There is a lot of staff at the hotels but most of them seem to have nothing or very little to do. The room next to mine was used by the housekeepers as their break room and they seem to spend most ot their time sitting on the terrace chatting. Same thing during breakfast where most waiters stood around idle and were reluctant to assist you not to mention a member of staff in the bar who sat down for a snack when it got really busy.
The grounds off the hotel are really nice as is the location and with few changes to staff and service could be a really nice hotel I would return too.
