Pros: Great central location and good sized rooms. Overnight parking just £2. Cons: Hotel was clearly nice once but now in need of a major refurbishment. Peeling wallpaper, chipped and scuffed paintwork and furniture and threadbare carpets.

We like this hotel and have stayed here before. On our last visit we noticed that there were quite a few dogs and their owners stopping in the hotel, presumably this means that dogs are allowed to sleep on beds couches etc? This is not a problem for me if certain rooms are allocated for this purpose I'm not an... More

Very Disappointed in this Hotel. We stayed for 2 nights bed and breakfast in July 2016. Looks can be very deceiving, to say this is a Britannia Hotel it needs a lot of money spending on it in my opinion. You walk into a lovely Reception area that's the only good point. Then you are told your room number and... More

Very pleasant young man on reception, who had a good knowledge of the Britannia group - weren't given a wifi code though (and no details in the... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in July 2017 for a conference in Southport - I shan't be going back. My first night was broken by what sounded like a bath tap running in the room. It was actually overflowing rainwater goods outside the window. When I say "window", I actually mean lightwell. There was no opening window and so no... More

We just wanted to post a review to give a heartfelt thankyou to the Prince Of Wales staff for hosting our wedding Reception on 15th July 2016. We know the actual building is dated but we have to say the staff and welcome we received were truly first class from the first minute to the last. From the moment we... More
