I stayed at the Grosvenor Pulford whilst on a business trip to Birkenhead. It's a hotel with some great facilities and the price was right, so I gave it a whirl, and I wasn't disappointed.
I took a while to find the hotel as my satnav took me on a wild goose chase (I'd use the street address rather than the postcode, if you're coming here via satnav). There's an ample (free) car park out front, and my first impressions of the hotel were very good as I walked to reception through the beautifully decorated hallway, which is dotted with weeping figs and other plants. The reception staff were very friendly and made me feel really welcome.
The room I had was a little poky - there was only about a 2ft gap between the foot of the bed and the wall, which meant that navigating the room was a bit tricky. However, the facilities more than made up for it - there are two restaurants on the site (the pubby Nelson's and the more formal Ciro's), a very plush gym, tennis courts, spa and a superb pool. I took a dip around 7am - the pool has tiled-covered columns and frescos around the walls, and large windows that let in lots of natural light. There's a sauna and jacuzzi next to the pool as well, though I didn't use them.
I took an early morning stroll around the grounds as well - there's a small lake in the landscaped gardens to the side of the hotel, with a little bridge and some benches. Very nice.
Checkout was swift and painless, with my meal being correctly billed. I paid about £65 for the room for one night, which I was very happy with considering the quality of the facilities. This hotel makes an excellent business stop-off if you're staying in the north-west, and it would make a really nice weekend getaway thanks to the restaurants and spa on site.
