We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a party of 14 and Cliff, Jayne and Sally (and Baxter) made it a real house party weekend for us . The Leicester is everything a guest house should be, warm, welcoming, clean and comfortable. The choice of breakfasts was imaginative, and the food was superb, hot and tasty, quite a... More

Lovely bed and breakfast, great hosts including the dog :-) Wonderful breakfast with everything you could ask for. Comfy bed and nice room. We left some items behind and the owner kindly posted these to us - which was great. Would return and recommend if in southport.

This hotel is lovely. Cliff and Sally could not be more helpful and friendly. We will be going back again and again. We will need to book early though because other guests will no doubt feel the same.

My stay was for three nights. The Hotel is beautifully decorated and my bedroom was extremely comfortable and well-appointed. The food was fabulous, the breakfast menu being wide and varied with everything prepared freshly and beautifully presented. Nothing was too much trouble for the hoteliers including the option of a packed lunch which myself and a friend took up one... More

Excellent food, modern accomodation, friendly staff. The only minus is the stairs if you cannot manage but they are very helpful staff. The hotel is close to all Southports leisure and restaurants and has free parking on the front of the hotel.

Hotel rooms were superb, much nicer than we site suggested. Cliff is a great host and the beers were very reasonably priced. Breakfast was very good too. Very well situated within southport and close to bars and restaurants. Also cliff gives out good advice for golfers, as he is a a qualified pga professional .
