Stayed here in as an impromptu night away - but should have brought sandwiches. The room was well adorned, decorated and equipped. No complaints whatsoever. Staff very friendly. Evening in the restaurant was a disaster. Rubber chicken, leather beef and Aunt Bessie's roast potatoes perfectly created the feel of a restaurant on its last legs - actually back in the... More

Really good hotel, large group of us had to book late on a Friday to visit grandmother in Aintree Hospital. Staff really friendly, sorted out different room bookings and meal in restaurant for us even though we arrived late. Super breakfast.

The staff and management were superb from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely and clean and the bed was really comfy. Bar process good and the food in bar was very nice. Breakfast was excellent too. Fantastic location for walks and local amenities. I would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet relaxing place.

Stayed in the Royal last night and found it great. Staff were fantastic with the young barman going above and beyond. The evening meal was excellent with the steak first class. Freshly cooked breakfast with a good choice and overall fantastic value for money.

As good as it looks. Warm atmosphere and friendly. French chef prepares first rate food. Good choice of breakfasts. 5 minutes from station to city. Stunning view out over Bay of Mersey and far hills of North Wales. Sunsets to die for. Big boats pass close to shore in shipping channel. Walk on sands and around lagoon. Will be back!

We have been visiting the Liverpool area about 4 or 5 times a year for the last nine years, and this is our first choice of accommodation. That is not say there isn't anything better, just there is nothing about the stay here which makes me want to look elsewhere. The service they offer is exactly what I would expect... More

I have enjoyed meals at the Royal Hotel but I was disappointed at afternoon tea. The sandwiches were lovely although not that many. The champagne was nice and topped up reguarly. But the cakes were below standard. Scones were hearty and real clotted cream and jam. But I am used to very good food here and would have expected better.

Thank Kath R
