Having returned to this hotel several times since I first reviewed it, I am not surprised to still hear comments like "they really can't do enough for you". I have visited 3 times this year and on one of my visits I spent my most amazing birthday ever. I have already booked for my next visit in September looking forward... More

This is one of these hotels where you feel like you need a good wash when you leave. My room was filthy and my mattress was covered in bodily stains left by other guests. My duvet cover had dried blood on it; My room had no bath or shower so to get a wash I had to walk up to... More

Managed to book a last minute overnight stay here. The owner very helpful and accommodating . Although hotel is tired looking we found our room to be spotlessly clean .Breakfast nicely cooked although not much choice in cereals. Service very good. For a budget hotel very good service and very clean

Before we went we read all the reports on Trip Advisor and because of them were looking forward to some lovely meals - well have never been so disappointed in all my life. I think the people who are... More

I have just returned from a four night Glenton Tour at the Talbot Hotel in Southport. In my option this hotel is not suitable for elderly guests as all of the bedrooms are up at least one steep flight of stairs. Furthermore, many of the single bedrooms have no shower or bath and the guests in those bedrooms have to... More

3rd time visit in May, 4th visit coming up in September. Worth going just for the excellent food :) Gilbert and his staff can't do enough to make you welcome. Rooms are adequate, who goes on holiday to stay in a bedroom?? Hotel spotless throughout.
