We stayed with friends for a rare escape from the kids and did not want to leave. And not because of the kids! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special, both from the smiling staff to the luxurious rooms. We stayed in a junior suite which gave us a front door with two doors beyond it - one to a double room with ensuite bathroom, and the other into a suite with ensuite shower room. All areas were spacious, well equipped and incredibly plush - and the best minor detail of all? Real filter coffee :-) :-) :-) (Ive fallen out with many a hotel who have tried to fob me off with Nescafe) We had no need for the kitchen equipment but was impressed by how self sufficient you could be if you were staying long enough to not choose to dine in the restaurant, or if you had young children with you who needed food or milk prepared etc. The hotel have suites with 3 and 4 rooms beyond initial door too so ideal for larger groups or families who want to be in same area.
We had pre dinner drinks in our lounge area and lost track of time finding our way around the huge smart TV! And I could even kick hubby into the bedroom area to put the footi on his own TV then watch what I wanted because the suite has two 50" smart TVs! Room service was immediate and no trouble whatsoever.
We ate in the restaurant and had a good banter with the staff. The steaks were cooked exactly as we asked, and I thoroughly recommend the squid starter. Melted in the mouth.
Breakfast had a good variety of food and a few individual requests were accommodated very quickly.
We used the spa both days and despite having to cross the road to do so (opted out of wearing our robes for this!) found it to be a real hidden gem. Felt like we could have been anywhere in the world (no offence Liverpool!) and totally lost track of time.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting luxury and relaxation and whom like me, think a smile goes a long way.
