Hollins Hey Hotel
Ranked #4 of 5 New Brighton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Our visit was to attend a family wedding reception nearby, and The Hollins Hey was ideally located for it.

We had a quick look on-line to see what it was like, read some reviews, then we booked it.

The hotel was maybe not a modern place like the Travelodges or Premier Inns that seem to be everywhere these days. It was an old, period place with much more character than nearby modern chain hotels.

The first room we were allocated had a wonderful view of the car park. We asked if this could be changed to a sea view, and Bruno sorted this out with the very minimum of fuss.

We were then put into room 2, which overlooked the bay (very nice), and had a four poster bed. The room was very comfortable, though the shower did take some getting used to, this was the only fault we could find. The temperature ranged from freezing to scalding!!

We had our evening meal their on the Friday night, and the food was lovely with good generous portions. No complaints there :)

All in all, if you want a modern shiny, soulless hotel to stay in, then the Hollins Hey isn't for you.

If you want a place with lots of character, then book it, you won't regret it. Ian and Bruno will look after you.

We will certainly be back.

Room Tip: Room 2 had a very good view across the bay, and was surprisingly quiet. Room 1's view was the...

The pictures on the hotel website are totally misleading to the actual condition of this hotel. It is very shabby and the room (4) I was presented with on Saturday evening was in an unbelievable state of disrepair.There were holes in the doors both the outer door and the bathroom door, the carpet was stained and the walls all scratched and the wallpaper torn from the walls.Worst of all the room was extremely smoky, there was hot water coming out of the cold tap and we were expected to pay £80 with an additional charge of £10 each for breakfast. I requested to be moved to another room but the manager said the hotel was full and it was not possible to move. I said I was not prepared to pay the full amount and he agreed I would pay £55. He then changed his mind and said he could move some other guests out of another room so we coudl move in. This room was slightly better but still not worth £80. We were totally messed around and this is not I expected when checking in to a hotel. My daughter was particularly upset about this because the three rooms had been booked well before Christmas as a gift for me.

Room Tip: I saw no evidence of any good rooms

Highly recommend this hotel. The staff are so friendly the food is of very high standard. Ian the Manager his wife Theresa and his son Kieran are so obliging. They go out of their way to help you. My sister and my brother in law had their wedding here on the 1st of March 2013 everything ran so smoothly thanks to all the staff. Nothing seemed a problem to them.

Went to a friends 60th party and stayed here with my wife and friends. The staff were very friendly and the food at both evening and at breakfast were excellent. The rooms were comfortable, with a brand new bathroom, which was cold. The bed was comfy if not a little small. Would recommend

We went to New Brighton for a long weekend and stayed at this Hotel. We really had a great time and the hotel was excellent. Bedrooms are large and well equipped as is the en-suite bathroom. We only booked in bed and breakfast but the breakfast was so good we decided to eat in for dinner and were not disappointed. Not a particularly large menu but what we had was excellent and the staff and owners are very attentive and nothing was to much trouble. This was our 3rd stay and we shall return as it is a great area to explore with lots of very good restaurants to try in the surrounding area. The hotel is only a couple of minuets from the underground which has an excellent service across the Wirral and out to Chester, Liverpool and Southport.
