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

I found this hotel by using Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed at all. I stayed last evening on business with a colleague and Our host Cliff could not have been more helpful. The rooms were very comfortable and everything was scrupulously clean. Some good recommendations for possible dinner venues was nice and we found good options only 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...

I stayed at the Leicester while in the area playing golf. Fantastic welcome from Cliff when I eventually arrived late, nothing was to much trouble for him even though I couldn't check in till 9:30pm. I stayed in room number 1 which was an en-suite single, beautifully decorated, comfy bed and some great little touches in the room, the en-suite... More

Checked in today at this little gem. Cliff made us feel welcome immediately upon arrival. Room like a boutique hotel right down to the bottle of water and mints. Out for evening meal at the Greek restaurant just around the corner. Will continue review later. So far excellent.
