“Absolutely fine!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012 via mobile

Upon arrival we were greeted by a pleasant receptionist who checked us in no problems. After finding a very special offer on this hotel, being honest I wasn't expecting a lot, however was pleasantly surprised to find ourselves in a nice ground floor room. The room had wardrobe, dressing table, bedside cabinets, good sized bed, tv, tea and coffee making facilities, iron and board, hairdryer and a good sized bathroom. No bath just a shower which was fine for us. We paid £4.95 for breakfast which was ok. You can't complain for the price however if you like your bacon crispy you need to ask for this. Mine can't have seen heat for more than a minute. Bleugh!

To sum up, we had a very pleasant stay in Liverpool. Would we stay here again? If we got a good deal again then yes. The taxis in and out of Liverpool cost us around £7 each way so this could ave been put towards a more central hotel. However for the £14.25 paid for the room this wasn't a problem.

The only downside was the car park. Whilst free it does get full and our car was hit whilst in the car park. Of course nobody reported it but its quite badly scratched which is annoying. You have been warned!

Oh, and at breakfast we overheard somebody telling the rest of their party about the night porter letting himself into their room. Hopefully he just thought the room was empty and going for a sleep!

Stayed April 2012

We stayed for one night visiting friends in the area, and chose the hotel based on it's price. It was clean, functional and staff were friendly. Don't expect fireworks, but then it's good value for money and I can't really fault it.

Problem at reception booking in, during which the receptionist answered a phone call and proceeded to give someone long and involved directions to the hotel then had a quick chat with one of her pals while we stood waiting - not really appreciated after a five hour drive. Asked for a taxi for 5 when going out for the evening and got two cabs from a firm which must have a contract with the hotel ,[direct dial phone in reception] Although our trip was totally unconnected to football the restaurant we were meeting freinds at that evening was at Liverpool FC, when I gave the taxi driver our destination he made a number of offensive remarks,especially considering there were children in the car. Possibly the hotel need to review their taxi policy.Again as one other reviewer said breakfast was a let down with no bacon avalable.Bit dissappointed with the whole experience really.

Dear Buckisan,

Thank you for your recent review of The Blenheim Lakeside. I was horrified to hear that offensive remarks were made towards you by a taxi driver which you called from our regular taxi company. We treat all such complaints very seriously and I have lodged a formal complaint with the company in question who have since taken the appropriate action against the driver who picked you up.

I sincerely hope that this unfortunate incident did not detract from the enjoyment of your evening and that you enjoyed the remainder of your visit to Liverpool.

Kind Regards
Conor

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting family. Our double room (No 10) turned out to have 2 single beds but as there were no others available we pushed the beds together and made do. The bed was made up as a double for our second night but the duvet used was obviously for a standard double so was far too small. Also, the walls are very thin so we had to put up with our neighbour's snoring, toilet flushing and phone conversations.

Our room had a lovely view of the park but the curtains were difficult to close because the tv was fixed to the wall directly above the rail. As a result the curtains were falling off. The room was basic but clean and functional. There was no shade on the ceiling light, only one bedside table and light.

The bathroom had a bath (plentiful hot water) with an overhead shower (good water pressure). My only concern was that while using the shower the water temperature suddenly changed and I was forced to move quickly to avoid being scalded - health and safety !!!
There was no plug for the washbasin and the toilet seat was broken but these were soon sorted out by the friendly staff.

We ate in the bar the first night but the food quality was disappointing. Our "full English" the next morning was also a bit of a let down. The second morning we asked for scrambled egg and bacon which was freshly cooked and much tastier.

We got a great deal through Booking.com but wouldn't choose to stay here again.

Stayed here on business it has a good location overlooking the lake in Sefton Park. If you like the Beatles you will like it here as it was the family home of Stuart Sutcliffe the '5th' beatle who died in 1962 there is lots of memorabilia. Breakfast was nice as was dinner and the rates for dinner and the rooms is an attraction. There is an Indian very nearby and Chinese not far away the bar area is nice and quite busy the staff were great. My room despite quite a large radiator was a little cool but it was a 'cold snap' in fairness and they were sash windows. There is a review saying that this was a 'noisy' hotel, I beg to differ, hotels are not noisy its the residents who have no concern about their fellow residents who run around and bang doors with their sullied indifference that makes noisy hotels. Noise levels here were fine.

Dear Iantoes,

Thank you for your recent review of The Blenheim Lakeside. The hotel was once indeed home to Stuart Sutcliffe, and his family lived here for over 10 years when the property was set out as apartments in the 1950's and 1960's. Being true to our heritage we have a collection of Beatles memorabilia at the hotel and are a featured stop on the Beatles Taxi Tour, a must for any die hard fan.

We strive at all times to offer our guests a friendly professional service and excellent value for money. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back in the Future.

Kindest Regards
Conor O'Donovan
