Enjoyed the short break at this hotel though it is in need of an upgrade, particularly with regard to the plumbing and furniture. Buffet meals could not be faulted in any way and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The lounge is large and comfortable and the evening entertainment was excellent I may be being over critical, but from... More

We booked to stay at the Prince of Wales as part of a Groupon weekend deal and on arrival we were greeted warmly by the receptionist who really couldn't do enough to help with a small administrative issue we had with our booking. Our room on the second floor was reached by either a small lift (4 pax) or stunning... More

The prince of Wales is an old hotel with a lot of character that makes it worth a visit. Although we did not stay overnight some of our family did and they were highly complementary about the rooms. The hotel has some very interesting qualities and still houses a beautiful ballroom. The staff were efficient and welcoming. The food was... More

During a recent break in southport,I stayed in the Prince of Wales Hotel. Like many of there older hotels it's in need of a little TLC. A lick of paint in the corridors would not go amiss other than that the rooms are big with en-suite. The food was of a high quality and the staff were very friendly. Very... More

Booked into the Prince of Wales for the one night to do some shopping in Southport. Having read mixed reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. We had an executive double room, which was very clean and spacious. OK the hotel is very tired looking but I think this is reflected in the price. If it was totally modernised you... More
