First and foremost may I say that a lot of the reviews on here would and could have put us off going. Im of the opinion that many people seem to enjoy finding faults. We were part of a music/dancing package for 3 nights. When we arrived the car park was full and were not able to park anymore cars.... More

My wife and I stayed at The Prince of Wales Hotel for 5 days through National Holidays. The Prince of Wales Hotel was in an excellent location, the meals were lovely, and the staff could not do enough for you. We would highly recommend this hotel. Graham the receptionist was exceptional, we had a problem with our room door, it... More

Stayed 3 nights at beginning of January. Excellent location to visiting family near by. I sent an email prior to arrival which I had no reply from which was disappointing. Upon check in a lovely girl called Lauren checked us in and explained that we sent an email so she gave us a free upgrade which was lovely of her... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel on Saturday night, when I booked I requested a room at the front of the hotel, on check in we were given a room at the back, it had a window over looking some sort of tip and the back of some shops full of rubbish, it looked like a scrap yard,... More

Room comfortable, en-suite very clean. Dinner self serve buffet, salmon excellent, rest rather bland and not hot enough. Breakfast, usual buffet style just average. The hotel needs a lot of TLC, however it was splendid in its day, but needs a lot of cash to return it to its former splendour I think it is bit much charging to park... More

I would like to start this review by stating that prior to writing this, I did e mail the "reception team" at this hotel to inform them of the problems we had during our stay on their New Years Eve package as I thought it was only fair to give them the opportunity to respond before I posted this. As... More

Having read recent reviews, I fancied a trip to Southport and a post-Christmas stay in this hotel - especially after staying in another hotel of the same chain. I had a quick look at previous reviews, some extremely critical. The main issue for me is about expectations - this is a hotel for which I was paying £32 for an... More

The disability access is good and the St James Room disabled ensuite good and blending with a good size room. Although like other Britania Hotels the... More
