Friendly staff, room was clean, view not great as we were at the back of the hotel but we were only there for one night, the bar/bistro was comfortable. A nice overnight stay, we had dinner in the restaurant, we had taken the offer for booking before our stay and instead of £22, it was £14.00 for two courses, which... More

I stayed in a premier room which was very spacious and had a great view over the gardens and lake. The hotel is very dated and needs an upgrade. The staff on reception where very helpful and friendly. The breakfast really lets this hotel down, the cooked items were all nearly cold and the toaster needs looking at as everyone... More

There was no Wifi as told??? If you want Wifi go to a different hotel. Or have to go to the front lobby to use it, that means privacy is questionable? The lobby on a weekend is rather crowded and noisy... or at least when we were there. If you are like us who wanted to answer emails and connected... More

Stayed here as attending a wedding. No parking on front so had to park round the back of the hotel - very tight squeeze, but at least it was free. Check-in was easy and pleasant. Went to our room (252) and it wasn't pleasant at all. Dark, dreary, window looked out on to a wall. Asked to be moved and... More

I had not used this venue for years but due to a seminar being the same week as the Southport Flower Show the hotels I would normally use were full, so had little choice in putting USA visitors in this hotel. What this place needs is a cash injection and also someone to get behind organising the bar and food... More

We stayed for one night whilst visiting friends in Southport. If you like modern boutique type hotels this is not for you! This hotel is not modern by any stretch of the imagination, the decor is old and the bathroom suite in our room was orange! Apart from that we loved it! We stayed in room number 5 on the... More
