Ok it was a late booking on a bank holiday weekend for 1 night so we expected a little price inflation but for £114 for a double room with breakfast it was certainly inflated! Lol. On arrival the car park was full so we found a place on the street. The only positive I give is to the young lad... More

Extremely outdated and worn. In massive need of a full refurbishment. Staff friendly and helpful but doesn't make up for how tired looking and basic the hotel is. The wallpaper in the room was peeling off. A huge crack visible in the wall. Paint all chipped and the furniture reminded me of hi-de-hi. I actually felt like I was a... More

My Husband and 4 year old Grandaughter stayed here on the 26th August . I was a bit concerned after reading the previous reviews after booking our room. I need not have worried. This hotel is a gem. Everything we found was lovely. I think the previous reviews must have been at a different hotel to this. We found the... More

Been many times before, always hoping for improvement but to date, no luck. Sadly needing a ground up refurbishment as the décor is getting well past being attractive. The windowsill of my room was completely rotten and the roof below was littered with cigarette ends. There is no dress code for meals and if you like taking your food from... More

Staff really welcoming and accommodating, Afternoon tea one of the worst I've ever had cheap stale sandwiches and packet bought cakes. Hotel caters mainly for the elderly needs some work and money spent on it. Wouldn't like to pay to stay there. One to avoid

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Glentoun tours, David urquhart, and Caledonia all use it. We stayed here last week. Th food was like leftovers from the previous evening. On the night before we left one of the residents told me she had seen a "rat" in the dining room. When she told the waiter he stretched his... More

I booked the prince of wales for one night, for myself and partner. We only decided to stay because we had arranged an evening out in Southport and wanted somewhere close by to go back to. The first thing we noticed was how dated the hotel was. We thought this was a shame, as we could tell it would of... More

Ok to be fair, we only booked our stay at 11pm the night before, but when we turned up at 5 (check-in is from 3) we were informed the car park (not free) was full and we had to park (for free) three streets further down. Two hours after check-in I would not have expected to find the car park... More
