Stayed over 2 weekends while visiting family in Merseyside area. Saddened by the way it's lost the grandeur it once had, even from visiting it only 20yrs prior. The rooms were clean and tidy, bed not the best and old style tv. Disliked the 'bingo' posters and cheap signage of 'monthly offers' however this hotel offers fantastic value. Our second... More

Should be advertised as a pensioners hotel. Once you enter, it becomes apparent you have just entered Gods waiting room. Hotel would have been a grand hotel years ago! Reception staff pleasant. Waiting on staff miserable as sin. Food edible but when it runs out it's tough luck. It is suited to over 70's I have stayed in a lot... More

Having read previous reviews my wife and i were pessimistic about our stay, as part of the grand national weekend coach trip. The hotel is in need of an modern update but in its heyday it would have been a class act. Our room on the first floor was clean and tidy, the furniture would have been modern in the... More

My wife & I stayed here for 2 nights on a DBB Living Social deal at the end of March and from arriving on Thursday & departing on Saturday every aspect of the stay was exemplary. We have come to know Britannia hotels as quite rough & ready but have always found the service, rooms & food here top notch.... More

Perhaps because we had read adverse comments we weren't expecting much. We had booked a KGB deal 2 nights bed, breakfast and evening meal, box of chocolates and wine at an extremely competitive price. We were happy with our bedroom on the second floor. Clean white bedding, very clean and a big bathroom with a really powerful shower. Great. We... More

We have stayed here before, a couple of years ago, it is still as comfortable warm and friendly and we really loved it.

Oh dear. This is Britannia's better hotel in Southport and the fact that it is shocking says volumes about the other one. Normally I expect some kind of smile when I check in. Here it is pretty vile and hatchet faced. Quarter to nine sorry we stopped dinner ten mins ago and tell you to go over the road to... More

We stayed here this week on a Living Social deal which was a really good price for 2 nights. Paid for an upgrade and was given a suite. Room really big, with massive super king bed. Large bathroom so all in all really good accommodation. Like others have said, this hotel takes lots of coaches and I understand why, but... More
