Warm and luxurious
My boyfriend and I headed down to Widnes to attend a gig, the hotel staff were all so friendly and helpful.. We didn't spend much of our evening there which is a massive shame! The rooms out nicely decorated with big comfy beds and a tele and fully equipt and free parking and a nice pub and restaurant downstairs. Great stay and value for money
