Stayed for one night in July 2014 as part of a business trip. Cliff and Jayne were very accommodating, and the hotel was clean and well presented.

Had the opportunity to stay for just one night while playing golf at Formby during the day, and what a great place to pick. Very stylishly redeveloped property and warm welcome to boot. Location is excellent just off the main Southport High Street, rooms are a good size and absolutely immaculate. Comfy lounge to have a drink in the evening... More

Spent a single night at The Leicester in June 2014 and whilst my stay was generally ok, I have to admit I wasn't blown away by it. Maybe I went with too much of a high expectation given all the other generally excellent reviews on here. I stayed in a single room (no. 5) and whilst it was clean and... More

We would not stay anywhere else in Southport. Very friendly, relaxed, lovely room which was l;ight from large windows and good lighting if needed. Great breakfast choices which includes smoked fish as an option. Help with luggage to and from the room. Other guests very friendly.

My first time, and it won't be my last. Perfect position close to front and shops without being in the middle of the town. Quiet, relaxing situation but close to all the amenities. From the friendliness of Louise and Lorraine, to the wonderful fresh food served to order, spotless bedrooms and relaxed atmosphere that emanates from the owners and staff,... More

Warm, genuinely welcoming, accommodating, attentive without being intrusive and great, great fun! They make staying in Southport, whether for business or pleasure, an absolute joy!
