For a budget hotel this had a lot going for it. It's literally opposite Warrington Bank Quay Rail Station. I liked it's old fashioned charm with dark wood furniture and rich colours. The rooms were huge compared to other budget hotels I've stayed in, particularly the bathroom. The TVs had Netflix which pleased my daughter! The room was warm. Breakfast was quite adequate and what I would expect for the price range.

On the downside there was a nasty stain that smelled of sick on my duvet cover. I was given new covers as soon as I asked, but being exhausted from a day out during a Winter storm, the last thing I wanted to be doing was changing bed covers. The worst thing was that there was no hot water. The taps didn't even get hot for handwashing, which in Covid times feels very worrying. My daughter and I were unable to have a shower, which was horrible after a day in torrential rain. Luckily I only had to travel home but if I'd had an event the next day this would have been awful.

The manager was very friendly and kind to my daughter. He reassured me there are not usually problems with the water but unfortuntely I think this would out me off staying again.

I booked a night in this hotel because I was looking for a cheap stay near Bank Quay station and this fitted the bill perfectly. It was nice to exit the train station, cross the road and be at the hotel, and I found the walk into the centre of Warrington could be done in five minutes or so. My single room was not as boxy as I'd expected and seemed clean and well appointed. The bed was comfy and I didn't hear any other guests from my room during the course of my stay. The staff at check-in and check-out were friendly and whilst there's no wow-factor here (except perhaps the hotel's external appearance), I was happy enough stopping here for the one night and wouldn't mind staying again some time.

This hotel is pretty basic but it is great value for money and a great location for town centre. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, secure parking limited but available for my stay - staff notify you if vehicle needs moved, reception knew when I'd need to move my car and let me know in advance.
Room was a great size, clean linen, modern fitting in bathroom.
The building is 160yrs old and decor may not be modern but I have no complaints.
Great wee bar and breakfast was lovely.
Would stay again.

Arrived promptly to be advised that parking restrictions apply.

Be aware of their policy

Only 2 cars can park per group.

Any additional car cannot park as parking spaces are reserved for residents of the hotel.

A fine of £60 for any vehicle parked without permission may be charged.

The nearest car park is opposite at £15 per day

Prior to booking, I would advise you to seek a venue that provides free parking.

My instincts on entering this hotel told me this place is used to house the homeless and a taxi driver later confirmed to me this is correct.
We were only here one night and I just had to laugh about it make a fawlty towers joke and hope I didn't catch anything.
Filthy, smelly, "dated" doesn't cover the decor. Didn't eat the breakfast as I'm celiac and although they offered gluten free toast I didn't trust them not to cross contaminate me. It looked pretty awful.
Poor fish in sad tanks in the dining room not fit for habitation represent the rooms really.
Corridors like a bail hostel. Rooms Filthy. Beds horrible and uncomfortable. Some of the lights worked so that's a bonus.
No milk in the room. Couldn't get decaf.

If they'd turned the room over between guests they'd done a very minimal job
Signs everywhere about behaviour that evidence the type of "clientele" that usually stay here.

It's obvious that this large building is running with far too few staff and needed a total refurbishment years ago.
Honestly it's cheeky them still advertising it as a hotel to the public and the publicity photos are nothing short as a lie.

It's a homeless hostel. The owners should admit it and run it as such. Ive seen prisons in better nick no pun intended.

All I can say is it gave me a good laugh and as I left I told the owner not to mention the war. I don't think he got the joke.

One needs to be fair. I've been to better, I've been to a LOT worse. The bathroom door doesn't close in Room 40 and there is damp coming through the wallpaper in places. There were only 3 pillows for two people and were as thin as toilet tissue. The toilet takes a while to fill up. And breathe. We asked for more pillows and got them. The female receptionist was polite and the manager was respectful. All the floors creak badly. The breakfast (included) was okay but we suspect the buffet had been there since 0730 as eggs and bacon were somewhat rubbery. But help yourself to as much as you want with tea, coffee and toast. I WOULD stay again but the downers stated do need attention to be fair. 7 out of 10 would be accurate.

I stayed here last saturday , it looked ok on the advert, what a joke.
all there interested is your money.
I have never stayed in such a draughty cold hotel, the rooms were basic to say the least . it would make fawlty towers look like a 5 star hotel. the breakfast lady was pleasant and must have felt ashamed at offering cold toast and slices of ham that looked like they were out of a budget pack. The milk was mouldy Yes mouldy in the rooms . The bar was cold and empty. The hotel is opposite a noisy train station ideal if you want to hear the train announcements and sound of locomotives... You have been warned.

Liked · breakfast was excellent with lots of choices from classic english breakfast to cereal. Great quality ingredients and excellent service

Room was basic but really good considering the price value.

Location was close to town and lots of transport options. Originally booked one night only, but ended up staying another 2 nights because of my positive experience.

Management were great and staff (especially Naomi) were kid and welcoming. On the first night, i was very late arriving at the hotel because of travel delays and although the reception was closing at 9pm, i received a call from Naomi with instructions on how to get my keys outside and access to the building entrance after 9pm. That was fantastic. However, i arrived at 8:50pm and Naomi mentioned that she would keep the bar (pub that is inside the hotel) open so i could have a drink and snack after my ordeal. That was very kind and she was very friendly and made my first night back in the UK a pleasant one.

Would recommend the Patten Arms to anyone looking for friendly service, while balancing cost and convenience to the town.

Would stay there again.

Thank you.

I’m not going to claim this hotel is perfect or the best I’ve been too as I’m aware it is quite tired and old fashioned. It however it serve its purpose as I had a comfortable nights sleep and was able to get a shower etc albeit warm and not roasting hot. The hotel is probably 2 star perhaps pushing a 3 however what sets this hotel apart is the staff, you wouldn’t get better in a 5 star hotel. What an absolutely amazing bunch of people. Nothing is too much trouble and they literally bend over backwards to help you. Breakfast was delicious and I would absolutely return. Thank you for a lovely stay

I could not recommend this place more. Naomi behind the bar was very very welcoming and extremely friendly and always willing to go the extra mile for customers. The bar was great with very very reasonable priced and the location is perfect. It is right in the heart of Warrington so there is lots around to do and I am so surprised at how welcome I have felt here.
