“Boutique B&B in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

It was previous reviews for Vale House which made us want to stay, and once we had seen the photos of the Burton Suite we were really excited, although a little worried that it wouldn't live up to our expectations.
I am delighted to say that it was all we hoped and more. The room was beautifully dressed and spacious, the lounge area was handy for relaxing and pre dinner drinks! The bathroom was absolute luxury and I am so disappointed I didn't get time to have a dip in the tub.
The location is excellent, near to many shops, bars and restaurants.
We will be back!

Room Tip: The Burton Suite is fabulous.

Thanks ever so much for taking the time to do your lovely review.We like your boutique description ! We haven't applied for a star rating etc but have tried to make everything of a high quality but at a reasonable price - our aim is to get reviews like yours rather than a few stars ! !
Thanks again

We stayed in the Burton Suite in February and were amazed at how gorgeous it was. It was every thing we wanted... quiet, clean and very friendly. We didn't end up going out, it was that nice!

Jayne & Steve are the perfect hosts. Thank you both for a lovely experience. The breakfast and chat this morning just topped it off for us. We will be back and will highly recommend to anyone... Who will listen!!! :)

Thank you.

I stayed in Vale House for one night this weekend. It was a great place to stay. Very clean and nicely decorated. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The location is excellent. I can not recommend Vale House stringly enough. I'll certainly be back.

Vale House maximises it's temendous location within one of the most under-rated sea-side towns on the Lancashire Riviera. It is just yards from the famous Lord Street with it's elegant shops and restraunt's as well as the train station.Despite it's proximity to the town centre, Vale House is located in a quiet road and provides adequate off street parking.
The Guest House itself offers very spacious accomodation with extremely high standards of decor, furnishing and cleanliness. Breakfast is of a high standard in terms of presentation, variety and most importantly....quantity!
However the most important quality of any hotel and especially a guest house is the personal service of the proprietors and in this regard Vale House does not dis-appoint. Even-though they only opened Vale House in the last few months , Jayne and Steven genuinely offer a warm welcome and provide a great service with nothing too much trouble.
In the word's of that other great proprietor , my advice would be to 'book early' !

Thank you for excellent review,you eloquently describe Southport and ourselves far better than we could do ourselves !
When we set up the B&B this year - we kept the number of rooms down to 3 , to ensure that we could provide a personal service for our guests and generous sized rooms.
So we appreciate feedback like yours even more

Cheers

Just returned from a night's stay at Vale House Southport. I stay away a lot with my business and have to say this place was absolutely top notch. Fantastic location, close to shops and restaurants and convenient for the business traveller with free parking and free wifi. Beautifully decorated throughout, the owners Jayne and Steve have created a real gem. The bedroom was immaculate, bedding crisp and clean with modern splashes of a warm plum colour. Lots of little touches like bottled water, a box of tissues, some Christmas sweets, plenty of hangers helped make staying a 5 star experience. The place exudes quality, evident in the fixtures and fittings and the quality and choice of food Above all else though it was the friendliness, warmth and helpfulness of the owners which made the stay perfect. Thank you both so much and I wish I could visit Southport more often.

We have just returned from a weekend break at Vale House, Southport. This is a relatively new venture for the hosts, Jayne and Steve, and we think they have managed to get everything up and running to perfection!! They were so helpful when booking, and couldn't do enough for us during our stay. There are three rooms, and ours was modern, fresh and with plenty of space. The beds were so comfy with lovely soft, warm quilts for the cold weather! A large tv, and lots of tea and coffee! The breakfast was exceptionally good,,, with high quality food on offer. Cereals, orange juice,, yoghurt,,, fresh fruit (the strawberries and melon were to die for!) toast, and the cooked breakfast was absolutely the best I have had in a long time. The location is great, being a short walk to the main shopping area, Lord Street, and then a little further and onto the Pier! I wish Steve and Jayne all the very best in their new venture, and look forward to seeing them again in the future for another lovely stay,,,, Thank you both,,, Best wishes and good luck,,, Nova & Allan (23/11/12 to 25/11/12)
