“Very homely - would stay there again.”
Reviewed November 24, 2011

We stayed on a Saturday and Sunday night. The area is very quiet with lovely houses. Woodland Guest House is just 5 minutes from the train station. We had the perfect sleep there. The room was spacious. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were excellent. We loved our room: Number 4. There were tea and coffee making facilities which were always welcome after we came back in at night.
Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. It was very homely and nothing was a problem. We requested breakfast at 7am for Sunday since we were going on a daytrip. There was no problem with this request and the breakfast was superb; juice and variety of cereals, selection of fruit, full cooked breakfast with plenty of toast - it certainly set us up for the day. The decor is beautiful and the diningroom is very inviting. The most decorated Christmas tree we have ever seen was up in the hall - gorgeous.
We never saw any cars on the road from when we arrived on the Saturday until Monday morning. It was so quiet and peaceful.
The guest house is about 16 minutes from Central to Waterloo Station but this was not a problem for us. In fact, we were relaxed by the time we got back in at night. We just enjoyed the journey and saw that as part of our trip. We did not see this as an obstacle. It was very convenient when coming from and going to the airport as we had no changes to make in Liverpool.
Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Buy the £3.40 all day ticket if using the bus and train to the guest house.

We stayed here as all the city centre was fully booked, we thought as on the website it said 5 miles from the centre this wouldnt be a problem.... but its at least 10 miles!!

we were not told of many times at the house for breakfast/ checking out.
when we arrive we were left to it feeling a little lost and unwelcome.

we paid £10 for one way to get into the centre but we had a problem returning to the guest house as many people had never heard of the house or where they where going.
id recommend if your planning on a night out/shopping/site seeing in liverpool centre you should pay more for an apartment as this was just to much messing about.

Breakfast - was nice and we had more then expected.
Rooms - are a good size just abit of an odd lay out. very nicely decorated.
Staff - Could have been abit more welcoming and helpful.

We needed an overnight stay with our two kids (3 year old and 1 year old). We booked this B&B as close to the people we were going to see on the Sunday. We arrived quite late and the staff helped us move the bags into the room as the babies were already asleep and we just transferred them straight to their beds/cot. B&B provided the travel cot as promised all ready and set up.

Family room was plenty big for the four of us with double bed and two singles and the travel cot bed. The room is also en-suite.

Breakfast was nice in the morning and staff helpful again.

Just what we needed.

I went to the Woodland as a Grand National stop off, having found my usual haunt fully booked. I really enjoyed my stay it has to be said.
The rooms were a very generous size, we booked 2 single rooms, both of which could have easily accommodated a double bed. Rooms included a flat screen tv with freeview, and a decent ensuite.
Breakfast was a good qual, and came out at a good speed, which was a plus when you had to get to the national! Also the staff were lovely and chatted to you.
I really liked that they gave you a key to the whole building, and there wasn't a lock out time. Not only this, but i didn't find i got disturbed if anyone came in late.

Links to liverpool were good, getting to Aintree was a tiny bit more painful, having to go almost back into liverpool and then back on yourself to get there, but it's not an expensive trip by any means, and cheaper than petrol and parking easily! The staff were also willing to hold onto my bag for me after i had checked out, so i could come back and get it rather than pay the expense for left luggage at the racecourse. Which was just one of the many nice touches to staying in a small b&b

The area itself is not unpleasant either. Although it will not be revered for being an international beauty spot it's a nice town, and although the seafront is hardly stunning it made for a nice evening stroll. The hotel doesn't provide an evening meal, but there is a huge amount of choice not 5 mins away from the front door, all reasonably priced. Also a huge number of pubs for you to choose from. All the local people were very very friendly and by the time i left i was very fond of the town!

All in all a wonderful stay, only 2 niggles, there wasn't really a surface on which one could do work, and it's not as if the rooms don't have space, also my ensuite had a curtain, rather than a door, which the other room did have. Again not major, but if someone else was in your room, it's not the most pleasant!

Apart from that it was a really lovely stay and i will defiantly note it for next year.

The guest house is about 6 miles south of Liverpool,very close to Waterloo Station,which is a direct line into Liverpool city centre,also loads of buses pass close to the guest house.So if you fancied a good quality stay without the parking hassle this is a great option.We had a lovely welcome,our room was very spacious and the bed was huge and we had a great view over the garden.There was a good quality tea traywhich was well stocked.The shower room was good too.The towels were a little on the small side but good quality.
Breakfast was great too ,plenty of cereal,fruit and yoghurts and a well cooked breakfast.
The Guest house is close to a small cinema and alots of restaurants in south road.
All in all we had a great stay and wouldn't hesitate to go back.
