This hotel offers such amazing potential but is really lacking the finishing touch. The building and grounds are lovely and we stayed in a deluxe double which was a really good size and one of the biggest bathrooms I have ever seen in a hotel with a great jacuzzi bath that incorporated an overhead rainfall shower. But it was missing certain amenities you would expect from a hotel that sells itself as a luxury spa hotel Only a small single pine wardrobe and no drawers of any description we were only staying for 2 nights so not a major issue for us Nowhere to hang towels when you were using the bath/shower or after No hand wash in the bathroom Room was advertised with smart TV but no WiFi reception in room so couldn't actually use the smart TV Also the bath as lovely as it is doubles as a shower but without any grab handles to get in or out and my partner actually ended up slipping getting in the shower and hurt herself quite badly Found it a bit odd that nobody came in after our first night to make the room and put in fresh towels etc. Staff tried there best at breakfast but you feel they need some training and at no point during our stay did we see anyone who appeared to be in charge which won't be helping things. Won't be rushing back but will keep an eye on reviews as the actual hotel offers so much potential but really missing attention to detail.

Summary: Just stay at the premier inn opposite. This place looks fancy on the website, but is old and tired and owners/management are either greedy, complacent or not got the money to invest in it. Only reason I'm giving this 2 stars was the lady on the front desk who was really helpful, but could have done with more training. The rest of the experience was not good. On checking in, there were no details provided about an evening meal, so I had to ask for a menu. Spa not open - apparently being refurbished but could see no sign of this as had to walk through to get to my room. Pretty creepy actually. The hallways smell of old grease. Once I got to my room, I tried to connect the smart TV to the WIFI - wouldn't connect. My phone wouldn't either. I mentioned this to the receptionist who just said that no one else had mentioned this as an issue. When I said the smart tv and free wifi was one of the reasons I booked (free wifi is provided by premier inn fyi) she said someone would go in my room to check. No idea if this actually happened as went to the pub opposite for dinner because their restaurant area was completely dead with absolutely no atmosphere at 7pm. Just odd. Being helpful, the receptionist let me choose one of their empty rooms to move to, so I went with a big family room. The wifi didn't work there either, on my phone or the TV. Great. So there's no smart TV in fact. But it gives me chance to review 2 rooms. The luxury rooms are generally around a tenner more than the standard doubles. When I asked what the difference was prior to booking, the receptionist didn't seem to be clear, just said they're a bit bigger. Because I booked on the day I was given a free upgrade though to a luxury room and it was a good size with a big mirror for getting ready. However, that's the only good thing about it. Aside from the WIFI which was never resolved after me mentioning it 3 times and giving up, the room had no bedside lamps, meaning the only light in the room comes from a bunch of bright spotlights. Hardly relaxing. Again, even premier inn provides bedside lighting - this is just stingy. The coffee in the room is cheap Nescafe sachets. The en-suite is large and with a big shower. Again, that's where the positives end. There are no towel rails to hang them on, despite a lot of convenient empty wall space. The flooring is ugly cheap vinyl that you'd find in a bathroom of an old people's home. The plug of the shower was blocked, meaning it overflowed slightly so I had to keep switching the shower off to let it drain. I mistakenly put my finger down the plughole and it was completely clogged with hair, so that's clearly not been cleaned properly. Now the larger room that I was moved to where the WIFI also didn't work, was just weird. It was a huge space, with hardly anything in it. One wardrobe, 2 x double beds and 1 x single, and a lot of empty space where a small sofa or dressing table could have been handy. No sockets next to any beds to charge phones, and again no bedside lamps. The room looks out onto an empty parking area, with some dead plants in the window and a bin that had fallen over. Nice. Again, the bathroom had the same ugly vinyl and no towel rails. BUT, 2 massive whirlpool spa baths next to each other, with showers above them but no shower curtain. If you end up in the unfortunate position to have your wedding here and stay in this room, that might be up your street. I also had to put down a £50 room deposit which I've still not got back after 4 days, it's still pending in my account. Apparently with some banks it can take up to 15 days to show in my account - never had this happen with anywhere else I've ever stayed. Basically the place is just weird and creepy and needs a lot more time, money and thought put into it for it be anything at all like what is shown on the website which is seriously false advertising.

Very disappointed, Spa not open. Staff especially at breakfast extremely rude ‘I’ve only go on pair of hands’!! Room Smelt of smoke on arrival. Grounds lovely in some areas but other need some attention. Doors bang loudly. Not such a luxury hotel that we expected.

We went for Dinner to celebrate my Mothers 100th birthday. The setting was lovely with remarkable and extensive grounds. The Hall has apparently recently changed hands and is under new management. Consequently the restaurant was very quiet. The menu was not extensive but everything we had was very well cooked and presented and reasonably priced for the setting. My GF diet was well catered for. We look forward to more meals there as well as coffee and cakes!

I had such high hopes for my stay at Rain Hill Hall. We were excited and the incredible looking building looked amazing on approach. The rooms are overpriced. The luxury double is basic. Flimsy cheap pillows. Rude staff, SLOW service. AVOID AVOID AVOID.

Good points Food is lovely. Plenty of parking. Wedding venue lovely. Drinks reasonably priced. Bar and waiting staff excellent. Bad points. Had to wait 2 hours for the room to be cleaned. Not great when trying to get ready for a wedding. Got the keys, it wasn’t clean - beer cap under coffee table, marks in bath. No shower curtain and the last occupants had obviously flooded the bathroom as all the carpet was wet in the adjoining room. The room smelt damp and musty. The place needs money spending on it. Breakfast - whilst the food was good, the service was non existent - completely disorganised. I was charged £153 instead of the quoted £138. No explanation, the receptionist just shrugged. The receptionist had no skills whatsoever. Wish I’d stopped at the premier inn across the road. Hopefully the new management will sort it out as it had the potential to be fabulous.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 1-5 - they are lower ground floor, down a dark narrow corridor to a dead end and damp

The hotel is OK. I was only checked in for 10 hours as was attending a meeting the next day. Receptionist was adorable. However the hotel double charged me (1st phonecall the day after, the acknowledged and confirmed) and 2 emails and 3 phone calls later I've not been refunded or been contacted by the hotel.

A large group of us stayed here from 11-14 May (leaving only today) I must admit I looked up trip advisor before I left home and was a little apprehensive as to how things would be I have to say I agree the building needs some attention but my Room was clean and cleaned every day. The food over all the days was excellent great praise to the chef who went out of his way if anyone needed something off menu The staff go above and beyond helpful, smiling faces constantly asking if anything was needed and I personally feel this made the stay perfect The spa facilities again needed some environmental work however treatment excellent with a great spa staff team I’ll certainly stay here again next time I will spend more time looking round fabulous grounds

I got married here in Dec 21. Viewed the venue in Jan 2019 - to say it was the worst build up to a wedding you could ask for would be an understatement. While I appreciate a lot of my ‘build up time’ was spent in covid - the lack of communication, customer service and down right care for my wedding - covid was not the problem. Here is a list - as to write it all out (again in an email, detail by detail has fallen on deaf ears) Communication - none existent Tree houses, finished decor, better carpet as promised - none existent - what was promised in that initial meeting - was so far from reality - Molder and skully would have had a job on there hands. Booking of the rooms for my guests - was one of the most stressful and unnecessary dramas of my life. Promise after promise; all broken. My registrar having to contact me - to tell me that our wedding had been ‘cancelled’ and the nightmare that was - which the venue had to call to sort. Paying the total balance of my wedding - the morning of my wedding - after chasing and chasing them to take my money. The mess of the venue the night before my wedding; saw me, my mother, sisters and niece having to clean the venue. The rubbish awaiting my guests as they pulled up; the chairs all over the outside of the venue - the dirty floor. The list goes on. I loved my wedding, it wasn’t what I had dreamed of or envisioned – but in the end, I was on cloud 9 - because truly despite everything we did have an amazing day – and you wouldn’t have known about all the stress and the nightmare that had come before it; but honestly looking back, I would have changed so much; starting with how naive I was about the venue; I jumped in head first, because I fell in love with the idea of the place – as im sure most brides have – the potential in that venue is unreal, I just wish people had taken it personal when I told them I felt let down. 4 emails I’ve sent to Rainhill since Feb 2022 - with one email back from the GM stating - ‘he will look into it’ - despite me providing all emails, Instagram messages - times and dates. However; I’ve heard nothing back and I doubt I ever will. It’s such a shame.
