Visiting Southport for the flower show for the day we decided to stay the night and booked into the Prince of Wales hotel. After leaving the show we went to the hotel a bit earlier than planned at about 2.15pm to get out of the rain. When we tried to book in we were told by the receptionist that check... More

We stayed here with a coach party so "you only get what you pay for " springs to mind. From the minute you walk into reception , it feels like you have been transported back in time to 1980. Shabby hotel , badly needs TLC .I feel sorry for the staff , who were very pleasant , but have to... More

I want to start by saying that this hotel could be magnificient if Britannia spent lots of money on it, as it stands it is of a very poor standard and has some very unpleasant staff!! The lift was out of order for the duration of our 6 day stay, the receptionist failed to inform me of this when we... More

Stayed one night as we was at a private party being held there. The hotel it self is huge. We stayed in room 114 which was ok for an over night stay. The hotel itself is very shabby, the staff on reception where very helpful and friendly . The bar staff were run off their feet, I would have thought... More

We stayed for three nights (20th to 23rd of August 2014) in the Balmoral suite for my niece's wedding. The suite was large, but; there was no fridge, the toilet didn't flush, and even after it was supposedly "fixed" it was still a struggle to flush it, there was no heating available and believe me it was an unseasonable cold...

Just back from a weekend break at the Prince of Wales Hotel. Having read some rather damming reviews we were expecting the worst, but the hotel isn’t that bad. Yes, parts of the Hotel are a bit dated, but this is to be expected from a Hotel built in the Victorian age, but retaining some of the original features, like... More

Came from Midlands for nephews wedding. The food at this hotel is beyond bad. The soup was like water. The roast chicken was in fact boiled chicken. Most did not eat, and then the dessert, what can only be described as slop. My nephew and his bride stayed the night and the room was so dated, couldn't believe what we... More

I'm sure that this hotel was really stunning in its day but it presently needs a lot of tender loving care. The foyer remains quite grand but once down the corridor you can see the need for decoration - little things like the windowsill in the bathroom could be put right without much bother. Also comfort wise, the mattress on... More

My elderly mother has just returned from a coach trip to this hotel in tears. She is disabled and had booked a room on the ground floor. She was told one wasn't available and as the lift was broken had to climb four flights of stairs to her room on the second floor.The breakfast was cold and inedible, toast like... More
