My room was spotless and very well appointed (thanks for the Mars Bar). Next time I am working in the area I will request to stay here! Don't bother with... More

Stayed here during September as watching the Tranmere game. Hotel was recommended by a Tranmere fan who knows the owners. Nice little find. Free parking/wi-fi. Rooms were nice , clean and a good size. Staff were friendly and breakfast was very good. Would stay here again if in the area.

We knew from past visits that the Riverhill had comfy beds, good food and a warm welcome. But arriving with a lively one year old and then wanting to eat while he slept was not a problem for the team. 'Monitor' sitting while Mum and Grandparents had an enjoyable and stress free dinner has to be a top mark and... More

This is the the third time we have stayed at The Riverhill. Every time we have been warmly welcomed even though a couple of hours before the published check in time. Rooms are superbly clean...and it was lovely to have a tea pot to make tea, along with the shortcake biscuits, Mars Bar and crips. Most welcome! Breakfast is beautifully... More

Food marvellous, and service excellent. So glad we went there. Even the... More

We had a room on the ground floor of the hotel, despite this it was warm, spacious, clean and quiet. The bathroom had both a shower unit and bath. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the Wirral Peninsula in its own peaceful grounds, this Victorian House Hotel is just 2 miles from Birkenhead, 4 miles from Liverpool and offers free Wi-Fi and on-site parking. Experienced hoteliers Nick and Michele Burn have owned the property since 1988, earning a gallery of industry awards in the process (including the prestigious Merseyside Small Hotel of the Year Award). They pride themselves on cultivating a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere coupled with friendly and attentive service. The highest 3-Star AA rated hotel in the Wirral area, the Hotel offers 14 en-suite rooms all of which are decorated and furnished to a very high standard. Each room includes free Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TV, direct dial telephone, hairdryer, and tea & coffee making facilities. For those special occasions, the Hotel also offers two luxurious four-poster rooms. The Restaurant offers a tantalising selection of culinary delights from their diverse range of ever-changing menus. With professional impeccable service, guests are free to enjoy their meal amidst the beautiful splendour of the views over-looking the pretty lawns and gardens at the front of the hotel. Afterwards, why not indulge in a coffee or liqueur in the comfort of the hotel cocktail lounge? Located on the Wirral Peninsula in Merseyside, the Hotel is just a 5 minute drive from the M53, 2 miles from Birkinhead and just 4 miles from Liverpool. With excellent transport links and free on-site parking, it is both convenient and accessible. For those flying in, Liverpool's John Lennon airport is just 13 miles away. Wirral is often referred to as 'the leisure peninsula' and with good reason. The coastline stretches for 25 miles and is perfect for a wide range of outdoor activities, from scenic coastal walks to sailing, cycling, angling and wind-surfing. Alternatively, explore the scenic beauty of the Wirral countryside whilst visiting one of its many picturesque villages or towns. For the less energetic, the Hotel is close to many other attractions such as: The Heritage Centre of Port Sunlight, The Williamson Art Gallery and Museum, The Ellesmere Port Boat Museum and Birkenhead Park. For sports fans, Liverpool is home to two of the Premiership's biggest football teams, or if golf is more your thing, practice your swing on one of the fourteen local courses, including the famous Royal Liverpool Golf Club. The cosmopolitan city of Liverpool offers a wealth of visitor's attractions, from its glorious maritime history to its world-class musical heritage. The Albert Dock, the second-most popular attraction in Great Britain, is home to the Maritime Museum, Tate Gallery, the Beatles Story, Animation World and scores of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. If that's not enough, then the vibrant city of Chester is less than an hour's drive away. ... more   less
