As a disabled visitor to the hotel I was horrified to find that the hotel car park was full on our arrival. I searched google for the hotel contact number and rang through to the reception, only to be told that I would have to park on the road round the corner on the road and walk into the hotel... More

Booked a Saturday night stay at the this hotel and got a very low rate, I read previous reviews but because of the great price I thought I would give it a go, I am glad I chose to stay here as I don't think I would have got as good value for money elsewhere, I have stayed in Southport... More

Easy to find, good parking, £2 a day, close to shops, other eating places and railway station. Brittania Hotels do not have the best of reputations but this much better than many we have stayed at. Food is basic but adequate, you might prefer to book bed & breakfast and eat out. There is a Wetherspoons just across the road.... More

Well located for shops and good parking facilities are where this hotel fairs well. The hotel itself has seen better days and appears a little run down. Rooms vary considerably and having to request a change of room the second room was reasonably good. It was however strange to find they still have old ( large box) TVs. It was... More

I’ve no doubt this hotel was very grand in its day, however, it is now very dated and badly needs refurbished. Ladies toilets in the main area were old and not very clean, we actually had to complaint to reception at one point. The rooms are very basic with old fashioned furniture and TV. We eat in the hotel on... More

lift out of order, terrible food, variable meal times each day, no secure place to leave luggage because guests are just given the key to the cloakroom, in desperate need of repair in places. REALLY slow service at reception, cold bedroom, really noisy so couldn't sleep, not very clean....

Bathroom towel rail also disconnected and I have never slept in a bed so hard I had to ask for extra quilts to sleep on as it... More
