“how it should be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Myself and partner booked a table in the bistro and everything about it was fantastic. the weather the food and the service. we had the dinner platter and not one fault did we have with the food in fact its one of the nicest deep fried calamari i've had. the prawn and smoked salmon cocktail was delightful as well as the rest. the staff were very very friendly we had a waiter called chris. nothing was too much trouble and the sunset made it a perfect evening. highly recommended for anyone. There were also water sports going on around us and everyone looked to be enjoying themselves.

“Disappointing food & wait.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Ive been to the Bistro before for drinks and its a lovely place to sit outside and watch the sunset and watch the kids play on the nearby park.. We decided to stop and have something to eat this week, there was 2 adults and 1 child. Started off well, getting a table quickly without booking, placed our order and waited and waited. We had only ordered 1 ham and cheddar sandwich with cheesy chips & 1 child meal of sausage, beans and new potatoes. When it finally came the childs meal - potatoes were hard, our cheesy chips must of had s very slight sprinkle of grated cheese on which had dried up and burnt, very very dry. Sandwich was ok. We were really disappointed after waiting so long. You dont mind waiting if its worth the wait, this was not.
Staff were friendly enough but no one asked how our food was when the plates were cleared....

Overall - lovely for drinks and to enjoy the views and sun... But i would not return for food.
I have friends who have enjoyed the food here, maybe it was just an off day but not worth the money spent... Very disappointed.

“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

My husband, myself and the two offspring and their partners stayed here when we came up to Aintree.

The accomodation was brilliant. Large rooms and bathrooms (accomodation is designed to suit disabled travellers, which we are not) with wet room type showers. No bath though for those who like a soak. The room and bathroom was spotless, beds are huge with lovely cotton sheets. Complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biccies. Small TV and no fridge, but did not go there to spend time in room. Very quiet with some rooms overlooking activity lake. However, other rooms have views of the car park or port (not very picturesque).

Fabulous 'full english' buffet breakfast including all the usual. Also, nice danish pastries and as much tea/coffee as you like. Breakfast served till 11am at a weekend which was an extra bonus.

All staff really helpful and just a stroll along the lake to visit the Anthony Gormley 'statues in the sea'.

If you are looking for clean, quiet, no frills accomodation with a great breakfast and friendly staff you will do no better than this. Would recommend it to couples and families alike.

“Not a bad place but not brilliant either.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

I went to the venue to book a room for a function and the prices were not bad, but the advisor literally never stopped talking from the word 'go'. I wasn't enthused at all and to top it off, when we were leaving the receptionist was drinking coke and on her phone. We opted to go elsewhere in the end.
