Close to all amenities

Posted May 17, 2017
Pros: The ability to open the windows.
Cons: Shower temperature controls were a little erratic going from cold to scalding hot with no warning.
Location: Great location close to good restaurants (eg Chez Moi), Formby beach is beautiful and only a few miles away. The hotel is close to Lord Street.
Very good, Jane and Alan were excellent hosts and Lydia was wonderful

One not to miss.

Excellent family run hotel, made to feel at home. Great breakfast, with a wide range of options. Room clean and well presented as was the bathroom. Might benefit from thermostatic controls on shower as hot water was piping hot. The owners are clearly committed to making a very pleasant hotel even better and making their guest's stay a memorable one.

Nice location for a peaceful stay

Posted Apr 19, 2017
Pros: Price and the fact that it was away from the noisy club/pub area of the town
Location: 5 minutes and you are on Lord street , charity shops at your leisure...10 mins dash to the train station
Booked a single room for two nights, I'm quite a xl man so the room was ok, very small bathroom and shower. Lovely 4 year old met us on her arrival with her mum the owner, nice breakfast and surroundings ...
