I booked into this hotel at short notice as I was attending a convention in Southport. The hotel itself is basic but comfortable and very good value for the price. The room had enough space and the ensuite was quite big. There was a TV and tea/coffee facilities. But what made the place stand out was the friendliness and the welcome I got. The cooking also stood out. I got a dinner, and glass of wine, for half the price I would have paid in Southport, and the dinner was delicious, not your basic guesthouse fare. The breakfast was a great start to the day - proper English sausages, not the mass-produced commercial variety. I will be staying here again when I am back in this part of England.
