It is many years since we have visited Craxton Wood and goodness me how it has changed, I remember it more as a good restaurant than an Hotel but we all know what happens to our memories with time.
We were visiting the Wirral for lunch with friends and decided to arrive the day before as our Grandson would have found the return journey from East Yorkshire a tad difficult. However, check in was warm, friendly and efficient. Our rooms, when we found them after what seemed like an endless succession of corridors, were excellent. Spacious, with a comfortable bed complete with a seating area. The staff had included, as requested, a single bed, for our grandson, in his mothers room
The bathroom was well equipped with everything that one could need for an overnight stay. One thing I want to know is how do they get so much instant hot water? It was brilliant, none of this hanging around with a running tap waiting for the water to heat up.
There was a wedding party in the hotel at the same time as us but we were unaware of until it was time to check out.
The hotel grounds are fabulous. We went for a walk around in the bright warm sunshine which brought back many memories.
