Leasowe Castle, originally built in 1592, offers a perfect combination of style, comfort and elegance in a tranquil setting with 6 acres of grounds overlooking Leasowe Golf Course and the sea. The Castle was built for Ferdinand II, heir to the English throne, to allow him to watch horse racing on the Meols sands.
The 'Star Chamber' is an atmospheric lounge overlooking the gardens and is adorned with tapestries and wood panelling dating from the 1800s. There is also a famous 'Battle Staircase' which illustrates famous battles and dates.
Leasowe Castle has 54 luxurious en-suite bedrooms along with two beautiful four-poster suites, ideal for honeymooners or special celebrations. Both of these rooms have spa baths.
The hotel has a choice of dinning arrangments. There is an informal bar with an all day menu and bar meals served in the evenings and The Portcullis Restaurant serving both à la carte and table d'hôte menus. This restaurant is situated on the ground floor with views overlooking Leasowe Golf Course.
In May 2004 the hotel opened a health club, which offers a superb gym with qualified instructors, large sauna and steam room, a separate lounge area and a large aerobics studio.
Leasowe Castle is only 1 mile from the M53 and has parking facilites for 250 vehicles within the grounds. It makes the perfect base to take advantage of the many excellent golf courses both on the Wirral and in the Southport area. Leasowe Castle is the Head quarters hotel for the R&A when they visit Royal Liverpool later this year. The famous links of Hoylake are approx 5 miles from the hotel, Wallasey (the home of Stableford) is only 1 mile from the hotel and there are many other good courses only a few miles from the hotel.
