I stayed here, by myself, for 3 nights whilst watching the Ricoh Woman's Open golf at Royal Birkdale.
I got a good rate by paying in advance and was expecting a small single room. But I got lucky - I had a large double room that was excellent!
The location was good, fairly close to the Railway Station, and all the staff were friendly and efficient. I ate in the Conservatory Bistro, which has a sports bar feel to it. They had a good choice of fine value dishes that were served promptly by a friendly barman. Wi-fi is available, so I was able to catch up with e-mails whilst having a pint of Tetleys.
The breakfast is buffet style - great if you want to get off quickly. The selection was excellent.
From other reviews and mixed experiences in Best Western in the past, I had medium expectations. They were exceeded, although I know I got lucky with my room, I would come back here again without hesitation.
The only issue was that on Friday night there was a lot of youth activity somewhere around the back. Although not directly threatening, it was noisy right through to around 2pm. So take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper!
