Hillbark Hotel

Hillbark Hotel

Overview

Author: Visit Wirral

Nestling in 250 acres of beautiful Wirral parkland and overlooking the scenic Dee estuary, just 15 minutes yet a million miles away from vibrant Liverpool, this magnificent 5 star Grade II listed hotel provides the finest luxury coupled with discreet yet friendly service from the resident owners and their team. Finalist in Merseyside's Hotel of the Year.

Hillbark's character appearance hides a fascinating history. The house was originally built in 1891 (on Bidston Hill in Birkenhead) for the soap manufacturer Robert William Hudson. Germany's Crown Prince Wilhelm was so impressed with the house that in 1913 he built a copy for himself in Potsdam; the famous Potsdam Agreement at the end of World War 2 was signed there. Hillbark was sold in 1921 to Sir Ernest Royden and in 1928 was moved to its present site, brick by brick, finally being completed in 1931.

The house contains a variety of interesting features: the Great Hall has a 1527 Jacobean fireplace from Sir Walter Raleigh's house, a set of William Morris stained glass windows and a pair of 13th century church screen doors; the library was originally in a stately home in Gloucestershire; and the Dining Room at Hillbark contains a magnificent 1795 Robert Adam fire surround.

The perfect place to stay...eighteen individually designed, lavishly furnished suites and bedrooms. The perfect choice for fine dining...exquisite cuisine in the 3 AA Rosette Riviera Restaurant, complemented by a splendid 300-bin cellar.

The perfect choice for weddings and celebrations of all kinds, be they on a grand scale or rather more intimate. The perfect choice for business gathering and conferences, with a choice of meeting rooms and full facilities available.

Rolls-Royce & Bentley motorcars are available to collect guests from airport and rail stations; the M53 motorway is just minutes away.
