“Welcoming atmosphere helps make this a great place to stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We spent 3 days at the Waterford earlier this month (October 2013). We were most impressed and would come again. Paul was very welcoming and we appreciated the cup of tea in the little sun lounge overlooking the lake. Our room was both spacious and comfortable with a lovely kingsize bed. The breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. Both Paul and his wife were friendly and helpful throughout our visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms in this hotel are good. With my brother, his wife and son staying as well we saw three...

We had the opportunity to spend 4 nights at the Waterford Hotel while attending the British Musical Fireworks Competition. Paul and Trina run a great place that makes you feel at home. The full breakfast was excellent and showed their background as professional caterers. We felt a part of the circle of friends immediately. They were extremely helpful with restaurant ideas, things to see in the area as well as directions. They are ideally located in a quiet area, but close to shopping, trains, the waterfront. Because we had to leave for an early fight and miss breakfast, they made sure we had fruit, juice and snacks for a quick bite in the morning. We travel a lot and find this hotel to be among the best and most comfortable for a relaxing stay we have found.

Just spent 3 days at the Waterford as a base for visiting family. We have travelled extensively and stayed in a lot of B and B's. The Waterford is easily the best we have encountered. Hosts Trina and Paul couldn't do enough for us - from helping with our bags to providing a lovely afternoon tea while we settled in. Our room was spacious and very well appointed and the breakfasts were to die for. We highly recommend the Waterford, no wonder it gets a lot of repeat business.

No wonder the general reviews are good. From the moment we arrived Paul was attentive and helpful - carry bags, help with local knowledge, dinner reservations etc. The rooms were clean and functional with wi fi that worked. The bar service was friendly and relaxing and breakfast superb - great black pudding!! Thank you so much for such a pleasant stay.

Our second stay - on both occasions for the wonderful Southport Flower Show. A great welcome, high standards, a roomy lake/sea view room, and exceptional breakfasts in a very pleasant breakfast room. Well placed for all of the Southport attractions.
Easy to recommend this place.

Room Tip: Personally I would pay the extra for the lake/sea view rooms.

Having recently returned from a summer break in Southport, I would again wish to write a review. How lovely for us - my husband and I - to arrive again this year to spend a holiday with Paul & Trina Meyler at their guesthouse which occupies a perfect position near the Marine Lake.

This is our fifth vacation at The Waterford and each year we are so happy to be back. From the moment we arrive to be greeted by the warm welcome of Paul & Trina with tea and cakes, until our reluctant departure some 10 days later, they always make us so cared about as guests, that it is like “coming home”. Just nothing is too much trouble for these kind hosts.

Everything is spotless and the whole guesthouse most tastefully decorated. The bedrooms are very comfortable (as are the beds!!) and a lovely courtesy tray of tea coffee & hot chocolate with tasty biscuits to wake to or to enjoy when back from a great but tiring day!! is so welcome.

Oh and I haven’t mentioned the breakfasts!! A very wide choice - full English, omelettes, smoked salmon & scrambled egg amongst others, fruit, cereal etc etc all so delicious and presented in Trina's attractive and unusual way with little sprigs of herbs or a small flower on the plate. Paul ready for a little chat as we choose, and always ready to offer advice as to places to visit. or things to do - he is a fount of knowledge. Lovely dining room.

I could go on for a lot longer, but I trust I have given the flavour to make one wish to stay at this superb guesthouse. Once experienced, I’m sure you will wish to come back again and again (like us!!)

I should say too that when I was unwell during our stay last year, the concern and care from both Paul and Trina was second to none. Wonderful.

It really was so good to see this charming family once again and catch up with all our 'doings' over the past year.
