“very enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

This guesthouse was very neat and tidy. The owners take great pride in there business which makes your stay all that more enjoyable. From the very clean bedroom and on suite shower to the enjoyable breakfast cooked to your liking in a well organised breakfast room. Nothing is to much trouble for the staff so I highly recommend this guesthouse. Cheyenne Cambridge.

Room Tip: Don't sleep with windows open,the noise from the main road is very loud.

Thank you for your helpful comments on your stay. We do target those details you noted to make our guesthouse noteable, even compared to more established hotels.
With regard to traffic noise. we are situated in a very convenient location and the good weather has meant open windows at night. However, the present weather is very rare and normally our guests comment on how quiet the rooms are.

Thanka again.

My significant other and I stayed here in mid April before playing golf at Hillside in a two day event. We could not have been looked after any better (even if we had stayed in and paid for a very smart hotel). We were in the downstairs room because of work on the property. It was spotlessly clean with great attention to "the details" towels, bedlinen etc. Breakfast was just perfect both days - including the specially sourced sausages which were very tasty. An added benefit was the short walk into Birkdale Village (couple of hundred yards - less than five minutes stroll) to find a selection of good places for supper. On the Sunday night the local Brasserie (which has a good reputation wasn`t open) but the Italian was top class - pretty good food, well cooked and presented, friendly service and a very good bottle of red (our choice but one endorsed by the manager and deservedly so). Will have no hesitation in returning to the Birkdale Guesthouse whilst Marian and her husband remain in place (and perhaps sampling the Brasserie on our next visit). not only top draw but very good value. Adrian & Ann

Room Tip: Our room was fine and would have suited someone who was disabled - I think - given the shower / wet...

A great guest house in Birkdale close to some great golf courses. Very warm welcome with good comfy room and the breakfast sets you up for the day.
Definitely will be visiting again when back to play more golf.

My wife and I stayed here Wednesday and Thursday 19th & 20th June 2013. It was a last minute booking, in fact the web page showed it to be in use on those dates. Thankfully it was not and we stayed in the room for the disabled. The lift to the landing/entrance is of great assistance. There is a slight lip into the front door which is a slight nuisance to entry but not badly. The room itself is light and bright with two single beds which are awesomely comfortable. The previous night we had stayed at what was supposed to be one of the top rated hotels in Southport whose disabled room beds are really solid and uncomfortable to say the least. Given that hotel has a sea view, we were far happier with the B&B in Birkdale. I would say that the Vincent Hotel and this place are similar in quality. A difference in amenity's which explains the difference.
The food options in Birkdale B&B is good and my wife likes the food (which says something, full English ) I also liked the food (porridge and yoghurt). Top recommendation for B&B. No hesitation in recommending it at all. In fact a distant family member is coming to the UK for a family break and reunion and I have advised here as a good stop over for her. Facility's are good, place is clean, quality food and excellent conversation and advice on what is happening around and about.

Room Tip: If disabled ground rooms are available. Others are there for ambulatory guests. Back rooms are quitt...

Thanks very much for your review of our guesthouse. When we put the disabled facilities room together we tried as hard as possible to make it look like any other room and not like a clinic, and it appears we have done a good job.
Also it's no accident that we give our guests as much information as possible about the facilities around so they get a "feel" for the local area.

Once again thank you for your stay.

Comfortable and friendly, with a good cooked breakfast.

The rooms at the front might suffer from traffic noise, but we were in a loft conversion with a Velux window facing to the rear, so did not have a problem.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and we are very pleases you found our facilities up to standard.
With regard to your comment vis a vis the traffic noise. Although two rooms are on the front they have double glazing and thick old fashioned exterior walls which cut out the traffic noise very efficiently. In fact many return guests ask for those rooms specifically, so don't worry if you come back and stay in a front room!

Thanks again and hopefully we will see you again.
