Loved this B&B couldn't be bettered, will always stay here again. Very near the theatre, and all restaurants on Lord St. Rooms immaculate and breakfast yummy. A great feature was that they would lay a table on in the dining room if you ordered a take-out from local restaurants; how goods that! This was a first and a great idea... More

We are really sorry about the mishap with the booking. We moved in here on July 4th, the booking was sent to the previous owners e-mail address and sadly it was not forwarded to us.Travel Republic finally contacted us via our landline number 2 days prior to your requested date, sadly we never had any contact details for you otherwise...

What can I say, a really nice hotel, excellent hosting skills by Cliff (thanks for looking after our father in law in the morning before we came down) excellent breakfasts by Jayne. You where made to feel welcome as soon as you walked through door and would certainly return on our next trip to Southport

Stayed for 3 nights in early July 2014 and this place was a real find. From the friendly welcome on arrival coupled with the comfortable room and an excellent breakfast this B&B ticked all the boxes. Well done Cliff and Jayne you deserve the success you will continue to have in the future. Highly recommended if you visit Southport.
