Just returned from here after 5days break the food here is excellent and our waiter colin very polite and very quick, this hotel is a little dated but it does not affect the service we got and for the price we paid I don't know how they do it if I had one thing to complain about it was so warm in the hotel. The entertainment was very good the comedian on tues wasa better entertainer than I've seen on cruises and come to think of it the service was as well, the coach driver we had with shearings Ian was a very good driver and very knowledgable I think on the day we went on the full day trip it would have been better to only have 30 mins at the pearl shop and have 90 mins in yarmouth instead then we would have time for lunch there and the other trip to waltzing waters well what a waste of 40 mins but thatis only my opinion

Came back yeterday from a 4 day break with Shearings. The hotel is lovely a former Victorian Mansion still keeping some of the orginal features. My room was in the new part of the hotel, large, warm, comfortable and clean. The staff at the hotel are brilliant, nothing was too much trouble for them. When this trip was booked I was going to share a room with my sister (family break) but as we are both insomniacs we decided to see if we can have a seperate room. This was all arranged and at no extra cost, we were really impressed. The meals are lovely lots of choices and desserts to die for. The waitress on our table was brillant, bubbly and friendly, but sadly i cant remember her name. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful will be amazing in summer but I didnt see any red squirells,though my sister saw one on our last morning. I would definately recommend this hotel and the shearings breaks I have no idea why people have complained about either the hotel or the drivers in my opinion this is totally unwarranted

Booked a bargain late break and found it very good value for the price we paid. The service was good throughout - reception, dining room and room cleaning. It's a shame they don't have wifi but you can't have everything. The grounds are very nice but unfortunately we didn't see any red squirrels - apparently they are not very active in the cold weather

Room Tip: Avoid 202 - near lift shaft so gets some noise

Stayed here for 5 day Shearings break. Good service from the staff, especially our waiter. Room was ok, cleaned daily, but dated, especially the bathroom which had rust on the plughole and all around the filler, also no shower, but there was one of those old fashioned rubber showers that you push onto the taps, hanging on the wall. The TV leaves a lot to be desired, No freeview and programmes kept disappearing and left you watching a testcard. The food was nice and a good choice. The location of the Hotel was a good 10 minutes walk away up a steep hill.Didn't go much on the entertainment apart from the comedian on one night. All in all, it was a good break for the discounted price we paid.

Thank you for your reveiw, we do offer very good value for money. We are gradually upgrading some of the bathrooms, which is a ongoing programme and also the televisions are gradually being renewed. Sorry the entertainment was not your taste. I am glad the staff all looked after you so well.

My partner an I stayed here for a mid week break, and what an excellent value it was. We came on the coach from Bromborough, so well organised, Once our luggage was on board we didn't see them again until we got to the Hotel. Our bedroom was in the new part, quite spacious, and very clean, lovely and warm.
The meals were delicious, with plenty to choose from, and our waiter was polite and the service fast, we hardly had to wait at all, and the hotel was very busy.
All the staff were helpful, polite, and friendly nothing was too much for them, We were short on coat hangers, we rang reception, and they brought six up for us straight away.
This was our first coach trip, but definately it wont be the last, as we enjoyed the whole experience
Thank you all for a wonderful stay.
