Twelve months on from my first visit, this gem of a boutique hotel is still the best place to stay in Southport.
Lorraine and Louise are the perfect hosts. Warm, genuinely welcoming, accommodating, attentive without being intrusive and great, great fun! They make staying in Southport, whether for business or pleasure, an absolute joy!
Everything about the Leicester is a real credit to their desire to make everyone's stay as enjoyable as possible - from the individually designed, spotlessly clean, well-appointed and cosy bedrooms to the mouthwatering array of high-quality breakfast dishes. Even the Wi-Fi is brilliant (I was on the top floor and still managed to watch New Zealand v England on Sky Go without any buffering)!
There is a peaceful, relaxing aura throughout, which is due in no small part to the feeling of being truly valued as a visitor. We left feeling like one of the family and won't hesitate to book in again each time we return to the coast.
Having lived in and around Southport for nearly 45 years and having stayed at many of the hotels the resort has to offer, I can honestly say that none come close to The Leicester in providing such wonderful accommodation. So if you're looking for a fabulous place to stay in Southport, which is convenient for both the beach and many of the local attractions, and there are (unlikely) any vacancies at The Leicester - do yourself a favour and grab a room while you can!
