Hotel looks nice and staff welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was fine but had an hour to wait for main meal at dinner even although restaurant wasn't busy (no apology or reason given) Food was ok but a bit dry. We went to restaurant along the road another night and it was much better. Bath in room 5 was very dangerous....

Dear Guest I have checked our records you stayed for three nights and booked via a third party agent at a very competitive rate. Sorry if you waited for your meal i doubt it was an hour, however i will investigate further. Food is cooked to order and a twenty minute wait is normal. There is nothing wrong with room...

I have stayed many times before in this hotel and always find the staff very welcoming, particularly on this visit as I had chronic migraine and the receptionists were very considerate providing water, a seat and an early readiness for my room. The restaurant is just fine and I enjoyed a delicious salmon in lemon sauce on the first night....

I was booked in here for one night for business. The hotel at first looks nice at reception, plus the bar and restaurant are tasteful and look quite elegant. I was put in room 7, which was unfortunately the size of a shoebox and pretty tired looking with a single bed hidden behind the door. It was really warm and...

Dear Guest Thank you for your comments fortunately virtually all your views have no credibility. The team remember you. A single bedroom was reserved for you, tariff £37.50 inc breakfast and VAT, unbelievable value against our competitors and less than most guest houses and Hotels in the area for room only. The single bed is quality 3 ft wide as...

I stayed at this hotel on 21/09/2016 for a business meeting the next day, i arrived at 21.00 and usually most restaurants have closed by this time, i was very pleasantly surprised when the receptionist said that he would ask the chef to keep the kitchen open to do me some food. The room was well appointed very clean and...

Very good stay. Stayed for five nights on business and extremely good value. Breakfast was always good and staff more than helpful. Recommended for anyone looking to stay in Widnes, good location if staying on business. Would recommend.

Got this on Hotel.com as a last minute deal. Booked room only so cannot comment on breakfast. Booked a single room as a business user, although small and a standard single bed there was at least a desk in the room.

Dear Guest Thank you for your views you stayed in one of our budget singles which are very competitively priced and less than most guesthouses in the area. Very few three star type properties have air con and those that have this facility would certainly have higher tariffs. None of our close proximity competitors have air con either. We have...

Dear Guest? If you ever stayed here at all nobody needs to be in their car due to heat and all rooms have adequate ventilation. The ambient temperature would have been the same here as it was anywhere in Widnes at the time during that night ,air conditioned Hotels would be considerably more expensive than our tariffs. You are correct...
