I can't say enough good things about this hotel! My husband and I booked our wedding here and we are so glad we did.
Gilbert the owner, his family and staff are so helpful. they made the room look so beautiful for our big day. The food was amazing everybody loved it. Staff are wonderful and will do anything for you. I felt like a princess all afternoon.
Gilbert arranged a toast master and dj for us who are fantastic.
The room we stayed it was lovely. Comfy double bed and on suite
The full English breakfast in the morning was yummy.
It's a lovely homely feel to the whole hotel its quite and only a 5 minute walk into town. At least 10 members of our family and friends stayed here on the wedding night too and all agree its a lovely place.
Can't thank you all enough for a wonderful wedding thank you.

When our coach arrived at the hotel we were met by by Gilbert, the owner, he welcomed us. Our room was clean and tidy. The staff were all helpful and friendly. The food was all very good and served well. Well worth the money, will definitely go again.

The best hospitality and friendly service here. Any special dietary requirements just ask. Owners and staff all pleasant and helpful. Food was excellent. Hotel is situated in a quiet, central area not too far from train station.Room was clean and comfortable, Please remember that this is a good old Victorian building with no lift, and bedrooms are upstairs,so if you want cosy, friendly, come here. If you want impersonal and modern then maybe Southport is not for you.

I checked out yesterday from this lovely hotel. I have roomed all over the world with my job and I've never been shown the hospitality that was afforded me here. Nothing was too much trouble, room was spotless food was fantastic and entertainment to boot. If ever I come back to Southport forget your boutique hotels I will be coming back to the Talbot Hotel. Thank you and your lovely family and staff.
