Everything was done to a high standard, right down to the casual conversation of the member of staff at the desk. My room was very comfortable, and the en suite was equal or better to what I regularly get in comparable level (or higher) hotels in Germany. Parking was free and very convenient. The hotel gave me some nice respite... More

We have eaten here many times and love it. Great food and service, restaurant is well laid out, beautiful napery and fresh flowers on every table. The staff are brilliant, the food is fantastic - wouldn't go anywhere else.

I was made very welcome and the room fully lived up to my expectations being clean and comfortable. Although on the ground floor, and not far from the reception, I had two undisturbed nights sleep. The English breakfast was well prepared and served at the table.

Very friendly and helpful staff- professional but with a sense humour. Room (single) was clean and comfortable. Good stock of tea and coffee making facilities. TV remote control was missing and I reported this to reception but nothing turned up. Luckily I had an app on my phone to control the TV. Bed was comfortable although the pillows were a... More

I stayed at the Riverhill whilst in Merseyside for a funeral. The rooms were good, mine was on the small side but clean and well furnished. The usual tea and coffee was provided. We ate dinner at the hotel for two nights and the food was excellent. The staff are very attentive and we never had to wait long for... More

My wife and I had our wedding meal and party here on may 14th. To say Steve was attentive to every single detail would be an understatement, he is a genuine lovely guy.

We ate here for Sunday lunch. The food was tasty and the waiter checked several times everything was OK. Traditional sweet trolley so you can see what's available before choosing! We were running a bit late and they were very accommodating.

Excellent. Caring staff, great breakfast. One small problem, promptly dealt with. Nice touch that the hospitality tray has a teapot instead of just "teabag in a mug". Also, although not eaten, bag of crisps and a Mars Bar as well as the usual biscuits.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the Wirral Peninsula in its own peaceful grounds, this Victorian House Hotel is just 2 miles from Birkenhead, 4 miles from Liverpool and offers free Wi-Fi and on-site parking. Experienced hoteliers Nick and Michele Burn have owned the property since 1988, earning a gallery of industry awards in the process (including the prestigious Merseyside Small Hotel of the Year Award). They pride themselves on cultivating a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere coupled with friendly and attentive service. The highest 3-Star AA rated hotel in the Wirral area, the Hotel offers 14 en-suite rooms all of which are decorated and furnished to a very high standard. Each room includes free Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TV, direct dial telephone, hairdryer, and tea & coffee making facilities. For those special occasions, the Hotel also offers two luxurious four-poster rooms. The Restaurant offers a tantalising selection of culinary delights from their diverse range of ever-changing menus. With professional impeccable service, guests are free to enjoy their meal amidst the beautiful splendour of the views over-looking the pretty lawns and gardens at the front of the hotel. Afterwards, why not indulge in a coffee or liqueur in the comfort of the hotel cocktail lounge? Located on the Wirral Peninsula in Merseyside, the Hotel is just a 5 minute drive from the M53, 2 miles from Birkinhead and just 4 miles from Liverpool. With excellent transport links and free on-site parking, it is both convenient and accessible. For those flying in, Liverpool's John Lennon airport is just 13 miles away. Wirral is often referred to as 'the leisure peninsula' and with good reason. The coastline stretches for 25 miles and is perfect for a wide range of outdoor activities, from scenic coastal walks to sailing, cycling, angling and wind-surfing. Alternatively, explore the scenic beauty of the Wirral countryside whilst visiting one of its many picturesque villages or towns. For the less energetic, the Hotel is close to many other attractions such as: The Heritage Centre of Port Sunlight, The Williamson Art Gallery and Museum, The Ellesmere Port Boat Museum and Birkenhead Park. For sports fans, Liverpool is home to two of the Premiership's biggest football teams, or if golf is more your thing, practice your swing on one of the fourteen local courses, including the famous Royal Liverpool Golf Club. The cosmopolitan city of Liverpool offers a wealth of visitor's attractions, from its glorious maritime history to its world-class musical heritage. The Albert Dock, the second-most popular attraction in Great Britain, is home to the Maritime Museum, Tate Gallery, the Beatles Story, Animation World and scores of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. If that's not enough, then the vibrant city of Chester is less than an hour's drive away. ... more   less
