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 .

Stayed at The Leicester with friends for a golf weekend celebrating two of the friends birthdays. The Hotel is family run and this shows in all aspects of the business. It was spotlessly clean really comfortable rooms and the breakfast is superb. The host (Cliff) makes you feel really welcome and providers a great service. Thanks for a great few... More

As Cliff said to me upon leaving "we wish everyone could stay longer so we could get to know you better", I replied "I wish we could stay longer too!". As you will notice Cliff & Jane (and Baxter) feature a lot in reviews, there's a reason why. Accommodating does not nearly describe how wonderful they are. The room was... More

Cliff and Jane were superb hosts and I really enjoyed my stay. Pre-booking emails were responded to quickly and made the whole process easy. The hotel itself is well presented and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was delicious with a lovely selection of options. Cliff was very helpful with excellent local knowledge and made the logistics of my trip much easier. However... More

Staying in Southport for a 3 day Conference and we arrived at the Leicester to be welcomed by Baxter the dog. Then Jayne and Cliff came to the door. Cliff carried out bags to our rooms and gave us a quick run down of the best restaurants in town. The room was a bit on the small side, but spotlessly... More

From the initial contact to the arrival and departure we felt welcomed and looked after. Our room was large, stylishly decorated and well equipped. We had a good night's sleep and really enjoyed the delicious breakfast. We will definitely book the Leicester again!

I stayed In a single room for one night on 31st January. I was pleasantly surprised at the standard of the hotel which has very tasteful decor. The owners were very welcoming and my room was cosy and extremely comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
