Stayed here for a couple of nights on a cheap deal. Location is good Sefton Park just across the road a fantastic place to relax and wander around. A 10 minute walk along the edge of Sefton Park and Lark Lane has pubs and restaurants a three minute walk and you can catch the bus into the sity centre, every 3 mins in the morning! About 10 mins on the bus and you are at the waterfront.
Our room was clean and tidy and the bathroom had been recently refurbed with new shoer unit but finishing off lacked attention to detail ie shower tray not sealed properly holes left all over the walls from previous unit. Curtain at the window not fixed quite properly.
We had dinner on the 1st night the theme is Italian and in general the meal was ffine but the Bruschetta Starter my wife had was a lightly toasted medium slice of brown bread which had gone soogy under chopped tomatoes and onion...attention to detail again. There were a couple of dishes unavailable due to sell out but it was quiet!
Breakfast was fine but tea in a flask doesnt really hit the spot and again for a limited option English Breakfast no tomatoes or Mushrooms were available.
The hospitality tray was hit and miss in the room the first day only one coffee the second day only 3 small milk portions again attention to detail.
The staff were enthusiastic but obviously lacking in guidance it would appear that the owner goes on holiday a lot and the staff have good fun when he is not there. This is ultimately where I feel this Hotel is missing something if the owner was there more monitoring standards and taking a close look at the operation and giving some guidance to the team so as to provide a more consistant operation the hotrel could be much better.
However overall still not bad but as the old school report goes could do better.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sefton Park Hotel is a beautifully restored Victorian Villa overlooking the Boating Lake in Sefton Park, the largest park in Liverpool. It is one of the original detached houses on the perimeter of the park where rich merchants and shipping magnates once lived in style. Today it offers a warm friendly welcome, comfortable accommodation and quality food and drink which is served in Astrid's Bar and Michelngelo's Italian Restaurant. More modern history confirms that 'The Blenheim' was, infact, the family home of the fifth Beatle, Stuart Sutcliffe in the 1960s. Stuart's family continued to live here until 1970. ... more less
