Positive Reviews

Pleasant canalside location

The hotel’s unique location on an island along the Shropshire Union Canal proves a hit with guests. They enjoy being able to look out on the canal and remark that it’s all very quiet. Furthermore, travellers report that the property is conveniently positioned for trips to Chester, Liverpool, and other Merseyside destinations.

Delicious breakfast

Guests heap praise on the hotel’s daily breakfast, which they describe as tasty and filling. Freshly cooked items are said to be high in quality and delicious, while parents are very pleased that kids eat free. Meanwhile, the canal views offered from the hotel restaurant are said to top the early-morning experience off perfectly.

Obliging staff

Employees at the hotel are described as friendly and obliging, with reviewers remarking that they demonstrate a genuine concern for the needs of their guests.

Negative Reviews

Limited car parking

Travellers arriving by car point out that parking directly outside the hotel is limited, which can prove a problem for those arriving late in the day. Reports mention that the overflow car park doesn’t feel quite so secure and requires guests to walk a longer distance than they might like.

Pool and gym in another building

Guests at the hotel have access to a leisure club with a pool, sauna, and gym. Reviewers mention that these facilities are located in an adjacent building that requires guests to leave the property. This arrangement proves unpopular with guests, particularly during the colder months.

The firness centre's lockers are not secure.

It seems that any key fits any lock in the fitness centre’s locker room, which means that your valuables might not be safe, so it's probably best to leave your wallet or purse in your room.
