“Great value, comfortable & welcoming Guest House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

The Black Lions Guest House is good value and at the same time comfortable, clean, quiet, and included a good breakfast and car parking, and not forgetting a very friendly and welcoming owner/manager. The separate showers and toilets (for non ensuite rooms) were clean and very presentable. There is a separate lounge which looks neat and cosy.

This pleasant, comfortable & good value Guest House is just 15 minutes walk from the Rock Ferry Metro Line Station, and also a bus stop outside, that goes into Birkenhead Bus Station. Nick is a great host and very friendly & welcoming. Had single room (no en suite) but clean and comfortable, and a good breakfast, making for a pleasant stay. There is a pleasant garden with outside seating and those wishing to smoke. There are no restaurants or such like within walking distance of the Black Lions, but easy to get into Birkenhead or Liverpool from its location. Stayed only one night, but would stay here again if in Birkenhead.

I can recommend The Black Lions to anyone wanting a friendly comforable place to stay in the Birkenhead area.
I am an elderley lady travelling alone (with my dog) and was made very welcome here. Firstly I was invited to have afternoon tea in the garden with the family which was lovely on this gloriously sunny day.Nick the proprietor even loaned me a charger for my phone which I had forgotten to bring.
My room was large, clean and comfortable, athough not en-suie the facilities were just next door.
The breakfast was first class and I was given good directions to my next destination
The prices were realistic and I would certainly stay here again.

This bed and breakfast is more than a room, its a friendly, family run large house with a great feel and homely extras, including nice comfortable guest lounge room. Offers genuine care, great service. Rooms are big, separate shower and toilet. I will stay again.

We stayed in a 3 bed room (room 7 I think) on the top floor, it was really spacious and clean but had no ensuite .
Only stayed there as all hotels in Liverpool were booked up, but it was only 12 pounds in a taxi to get there from the centre of Liverpool, so handy enough location. The area itself is somewhat dodgy, so I wouldn't advise spending too much time around there! but I would recommend it as it was clean, comfortable and value for money..

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend visiting family for a 50th birthday. We where well looked after by Nick and the room was excellent. Nice en-suite and great breakfast. The Black Lions is within easy reach of all of Liverpool attractions and shopping. If you are looking for a great value weekend stay in Liverpool you will not go wrong with the Black Lions. Plenty of parking and plenty of cameras on the car park. Will use again.

It is fair to say myself and Fiancée, were overwhelmed by the hospitality shown by the couple who run the Black Lions Guest house nothing was to much trouble and the room that we shared was clean and very well maintained, overall great value for money and well worth the stay, I would definitely stay again................Highly recommended.
