I,like you read the reviews on Tripadvisor now before I book accomodation or go to a restaurant. So when booking a trip to Southport from Canada with my 88 year old mom required some research on where to stay. Quickly I found that the Waterford Hotel was the top rated hotel in Southport, and therefore became the obvious choice for a few night`s stay. The following is what we discovered about the Waterford Hotel and why it is such an excellent choice for you too!
I want to do some justice to the quality of ownership that we found at the Waterford and the special care and attention that we received as well. Truly we felt like we were part of the family and were treated graciously and with great care and attention. Additionally we were fed in grand style, and housed in luxurious comfortable surroundings. The Waterfor Hotel is a very well kept and tastefully throughout and decorated period style facility that is conveniently located on the north end of the Southport Promenade, in a quiet and peaceful area, that is also very close to downtown. You are just 2 blocks from Lord st. and all of its`attractions, yet without the unwanted noise, bustle and night time disturbances, but well within casual walking distance, in an area of substantial homes and buildings. Parking is available in front of the building at no charge. Wireless internet was also available, which adds to value and convenience.
Our room was large, spacious and beautifully decorated and furnished, it was very comfortable and relaxing. The bathroom was clean, modern and plush. We had large panoramic windows with expansive views of the Marine Lake, just looking out from our room was very relaxing and when the sun poured in it was very soothing. The Waterford provides quiet comfortable luxurious accomodations, but the best is yet to come!
I am talking about service, yes, service. This is what makes the Waterford so unique and why you should stay here. Service, a word now lost somewhere back in the last century and not too easily found in present day, yet we found it in abundance at the Waterford Hotel.
Yes it started when we first arrived, actually before with our emails as we discussed our booking, which were friendly and responsive. However once we arrived we discovered an unmistakeable pride of ownership and the knowledge of what a customer really needs and want to be comfortable and feel at home. There is no front desk drama or constant personel changes, which lead to different levels of expectations that occur when you are being tended to by hired staff or management because the ownership is located in a distant boardroom far from where you are staying.
Paul and Trina are your hosts and owners, everything is done very tastefully and very casually.
Our days started with the most delicious and freshly prepared breakfasts that you could ever imagine. Lots of choice variety for your taste requirements stay includes breakfast, which was absolutely fantastic, you'd think you were in a 4 star restaurant simply superb, with lots of choices, all freshly prepared, healthy, warm and temptingly delicious.
I really can't say enough about the quality of the accomodation and the warmth and friendliness of our hosts at the Waterford. This is rated the #1 establishment in Southport, and we found out why that is so true when we had the good fortune and pleasure to stay here in the Summer of 2012, I can't wait to come back here again in the Summer of 2013. Thank you Waterford Hotel for the excellence in all areas!
