I think the Bayside hotel is THE place to stay when at St Helens. Food at the restaurant was great, location of the hotel was fantastic and the staff made you feel like you were at home. Having a room with a water view didn't was also a nice plus.

I booked as it said it was pet friendly. When i went to check in i was told that my dog was not welcome. Staff were very friendly and nice about it saying that the policy changed a year or so ago and they couldnt get it off the third party website. I went to the Big 4 van park nearby and took a cabin. So much better
