Spent one night at the Leicester Hotel last night, and was very well looked after indeed. Was made to feel very welcome, the room was great, and breakfast terrific ! Thank you - I would certainly stay again, and would highly recommend the hotel to others.

My wife Christine and I stayed for the air show weekend. Cliff is a very welcoming host. He makes you feel at home as soon as you meet him, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts are fabulous. The rooms are very special in terms of decor and facilities. It would be hard to find a better place, in fact... More

I stayed on 8 September at the start of cycling the Trans Pennine Way. I was given a double room at no extra cost and had a magnificent breakfast. The bike was safely locked away. Cliff was extremely helpful [he is an expert on golf in the area by the way]. Highly recommended.

I've stayed at the Leicester a few times now and I'm glad to say that Cliff and Jayne are keeping up the high standards set by Lorraine and Louise the previous owners. As I've said in previous reviews this was a great find the first time I found it and many 'so called' up market hotels would do well to... More

I brought my 90 year old mum to Southport this June. We had 2 nights stay here and very much enjoyed our leisurely breakfasts and our gracious hosts. Our room was quite adequate, and clean. The location is great, very close to downtown and the Marine Lake. Southport is a lovely place and there are many B & B's and... More

I'm not often lost for words but......wow!! The place is spotless, both in the room and the B&B itself! the breakfast is amazing and the service provided by cliff would put the concierge in top hotels to shame. Would highly recommend! Gary from Edinburgh

We were made to feel very welcome, a home from home. Couldn't fault the room, spotlessly clean, crisp white sheets, constant hot water and plenty of storage space. Decorated to a modern, high standard. Walls good and thick so you don't hear your neighbours. Breakfast had plenty of selection to suit all tastes. Cliff is an excellent host and a... More

Just got back from a one night stay at this hotel and we can honestly say we can't pick a thing wrong with it. From turning up in the car park and cliff carrying our bags to the room to leaving this morning after the tasty full English breakfast Jayne cooked. We were even given a lower floor room without...
