“Will be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Stayed at the Duke's Hotel while visiting Liverpool for a weekend and decided to stay out of the city for a change to see a slightly different part of the area for a change. Couldn't fault the £45 I paid which included breakfast and a room with double bed, en-suite with toiletries, TV and tea and coffee making facilities. I was only there for one evening, but found the owner very pleasant to chat to - very welcoming - and the staff serving for breakfast very efficient and helpful.

Will definitely stay there again as it's a great hotel for the price. There's a good choice of food for breakfast, it's well located within Southport and a small car park to the front of the hotel too.

stayed here for one night and would recommend it. Yes the decor is not ultra modern but it was nicely decorated and clean. The bed and pillows were really comfortable. The room was warm (we stayed in December). They provided nice toiletries. The hotel is right next to the main shopping street so really convenient. For £50 for 2 people including breakfast you definitely could not complain.

My wife and I spent 3 nights in Dukes Folly during our 11+ days UK trip. We know the owner Agnes, but this is our first time staying in this hotel. The room we got was recently renovated and was really nice. The room, the carpet, the toilet and the hot shower are all of high quality. The traditional English breakfast was excellent and tasty. Enjoying breakfast in the conservatory was my favorite. I also liked the relaxed ambience of the bar. The bar area was quite popular with guests and one night I was enjoying and chatting with other guests till midnight at the bar. The service was great also. The hotel was very convenient and just a few minutes away from the main shopping and dining area in North Street. The car park was also a plus.

Overall, great stay in Dukes Folly and will definitely book again next time when in Southport.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 9 which was recently renovated and is great. I had a glimpse of Room 15 which has...

Booked the castle room with a four poster bed. Room was brilliant, comfy bed, big bath, very clean and warm. Castle theme was brilliant.
Owners very welcoming and helpful.
Hotel was just off lord street so blood location.
Breakfast was well cooked and delicious.
Would definitely go again.

Barbara and I were married in Southport Town Hall on 26th Oct and 25 of our party stayed in the Dukes Folly on the 25 & 26 Oct. To say we had an excellent stay would be an understatement! The evening of the 25th in the bar was excellent . Rooms were very quirky but very comfortable and warm. Breakfast excellent. Then comes the good bit! After the wedding all our guests(50) returned to the hotel where we enjoyed two wonderful buffet spreads (afternoon and evening) and another excellent time at the bar!!!
Overall it was a lovely experience, enjoyed by everyone. Proprietors and staff could not do enough for everyone. Well done the Dukes Folly.

Room Tip: Ask for theme rooms for a bit of variety and fun!
