Very pleasant and well situated hotel, just outside the rather featureless and unattractive town of Ellesmere Port, about 10 minutes walk from the railway station.
The hotel feels welcoming, is fairly busy, and has a pleasant bar area where they serve snacks, as well as a proper restaurant. The staff are particularly helpful and friendly. My big room overlooked the canal and museum and was clean and very comfortable. Free wifi which works well and a big TV. It had a good bath and shower in a well-designed bathroom.
The hotel is next to the Waterways Museum and the best South African restaurant I have found in the UK, Jabula, which is a minute's walk away. As the hotel has its own restaurant, the staff are understandably not encouraged to recommend other places but they will direct you to Jabula if asked. The other restaurants in the town itself looked pretty ordinary to say the least.More
