This could be such a beautiful hotel but it is in urgent need of refurbishment. We had to run the gamut of cigarette smoke to enter or leave the hotel; surely a smoking shelter could be put up away from the main door. The lift was broken and we had to use the filthy service lift. Room was ok though... More

Just been to Southport and stayed here for three nights. What a wonderful hotel this must have been in it's hay day. Sadly the bedrooms desperately need updating, they're tired and out of date, having said that they were clean and tidy, although I didn't sleep well as the beds are like slabs of concrete. Come on Britannia spend some... More

Water leaked through ceiling onto me from the room above. I complained all they did was to say it has happened before and would report it. No customer service, NO rebate of any sort.

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...
