Cliff and Jayne are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. Very friendly and great customer service. Beautiful rooms, very comfortable beds with explanation when in your room on where to find and use things. Free parking and the best breakfast ever means we will surely recommend and visit again. Many thanks!

We booked the Leicester whilst attending the Southport Air Show. Upon arrival we were given a warm welcome. Cliff also makes a (very admirable !!) effort to remember your name no matter how short your stay. We were texted ahead of arrival to find out arrival time and given parking directions, very helpful. Our room was fabulous. So comfortable and... More
