Lovey hotel. In a great spot for night out. On,y downfall is the rooms. They r so very old fashioned. They need modernising. Other than that it's great. Dodd tastes good and not noisy in the rooms Would still return for another stay

We stayed here overnight on 23rd August in a family room which consists of a double room and twin room. The location is great for southport town and pier etc both only being a 5 minute walk. We paid £80 bed and breakfast rate total stay, booked direct on the Britannia website. Receptionists were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good... More

We booked to stay in this hotel at very last minute - reception staff and also the night porter were nice and it was a quick check in - our room was down a tiny hidden corridor on the first floor and the room was very small! The bed was big and it was comfortable. The TV was very old... More

The whole hotel needs a makeover. You arrive to nice hanging baskets but the weeds around the hotel certainly give you an insight as to what to expect. The brick work is crumbling, the windows and surrounds need painting, (outside and in) and letters fromThe Prince Of Wales sign have been missing for several years, mind you the weeds on... More

Nice hotel, reception staff very helpful and friendly, evening meal was nice entertainment was a little lacking, Breakfast was very nice extra for the basic of proper cut of tea. Hotel in general is good could do with an experienced facility's manager to make the hotel look it's best. Day two to follow.

We booked this hotel for one night to visit Southport Flower Show. We found the staff on reception very friendly and efficient. We also enjoyed the bacon at breakfast. After that everything went down hill. The room was very dark and very stuffy. We opened the window for some fresh air and found we had to listen to the fans... More

Attended our sons wedding here, booked it all with Maria. Everything was perfect, and well organised. The staff team headed by Tim were all brilliant and attentive. The food was lovely, Would recommend as a great wedding venue. 12 of us stayed overnight, a couple of the guests asked to change rooms and this was no trouble to the staff.... More

One word, three times! Awful! Awful! Awful! The hotel was tired and no amount of work by the efficient cleaning staff could salvage it! The receptionist wore a dirty shirt which was a very poor start. The bedroom was dark and dingy with a bed which was more akin to an ironing board! Finally the breakfast, we'll indescribably bad. Will... More

This hotel is in a perfect spot to explore Southport. The room was ample with loads of storage. Very dated but I quite liked that. Bed was really comfy. The evening entertainment was a singer who was brilliant and funny too. I wasn't expecting to be entertained in the evening. Over all I enjoyed my stay and would stay again.... More
