This is the front of Leasowe Castle, where we spent three lovely nights and days. It was originally build by a member of royalty to simplify watching the dog races (it is thought), and was originally just a single tower. It was expanded a bit later, and then about 100 years ago a hotel was built out of the back (toward the sea).
The rooms were spacious and comfortable, and the staff absolutely marvelous. We walked to the Texaco near the entrance and discovered "digestibles" - basically a chocolate-covered cookie that was truly a delight. I'd trade Fig Newtons for digestibles 7 days a week.
The only area in which the staff fell short was supper, oddly enough. Each evening meal was a new adventure.
Overall, however, this was my very favorite hotel of the trip. Despite the supper adventures, I'd give them 3 stars easily. Recommended.
