My wife and I spent two nights here arriving 22nd July. It is in a nice secluded position and away from the main road so is very peaceful. However, the main building was a little dated inside and could do with redecorating as could the exterior. We had an adequate bedroom with en-suite. The en-suite itself was probably very nice when it was fitted but was now showing it's age. There was a large spa bath (which we did not try) with fitted shower unit (which we did use). However the water took ages to drain away so obviously the drain needed unblocking. The shower screen was a bit grubby and the toilet seat would not stay in the upright position (for the gentleman's functions!).
Our first night was uncomfortably hot as only two small transom windows could be opened. I was told later that the large window had to remain locked due to "Health and Safety reasons".
To be fair it was a really warm night on 22nd July but without air conditioning the room was very hot and made sleeping difficult. I mentioned this fact to reception the next morning and they did supply a large fan for the next night. The television was quite an old model with only 5 channels available. There was no bottled water in the bedroo
We ate in the restaurant that first evening and had a pre-dinner drink in the lounge. The three course evening meal was okay but nothing special. We were not offered the wine menu until I requested it and then they did not have the wine I selected so we had the house wine which had not been chilled.
The breakfast was fine but the orange juice did not taste very nice. My kippers with a poached egg on top were nice.
Not having been to the Wirral before we wanted to explore the area but the girl on reception, although very pleasant, was not too informative. We went to Port Sunlight, which was a must for any visitor to the area, and got into a conversation with a gentleman at the church there. He was able to tell us of some interesting places to visit and we did go to the seafront at West Kirby and also to Parkgate near Neston.
The meal on the second night was a bit better but the coffee was awful. I had the full breakfast on our last morning which was very good.
All in all we were not too impressed with the hotel and we felt that whoever was in charge should take more time to inspect the bedrooms and en-suites regularly and ensure that everything works correctly and is cleaned to a much better standard.
