I stayed in this Hotel on 7-9th August 2014 as I was in Southport for a friends wedding. The first night I came in at about 12:00am and enquired about the room service, I was told that the person on the day shift had taken the key to the bar home and they could not offer me anything. I complained... More

A nice enough stay but could really do with up- dating. Our room was large and spacious but a little dated. Room was clean and spotless but in the bathroom there was a peculiar yellow stained bath mat. Get rid of it! Television was not modern and only offered limited access. We woke in the night to an almighty row... More

Booked 1 night at a bargain £65.50 for D/B&B with a bottle of wine (Premier Inn beat that). Barrier Car parking £2 per night. The staff on reception greeted warmly and were soon on our way to our room. The hotel is under renovation as the many other reviewers say it is a dated hotel. The room was very spacious... More

Paid for 2 nights dinner bed and breakfast. Non refundable which meant if we did not turn up we lost all our money. Britannia Hotels have two hotels in Southport and we paid extra to stay at the Prince of Wales. On arrival at 3.30pm we were told the hotel had been overbooked and there were no rooms available, and... More

It may be one of Southport's most iconic buildings on Lord Street but the hotel is far from offering a modern hotel experience and has no real features that would encourage me to stay there again. The food was the best quality element of our one night stay in what was grandly called the penthouse. By the dictionary definition it... More

The hotel was cheap and cheerful, the rooms were nice enough, breakfast was okay but the staff were all exceptional, hence my 5 star rating! One girl at reception, Amy, deserves special mention, she was always helpful and provided me with whatever I needed, and it's due to this wonderful service that I shall be using the Prince Of Wales...
