First impressions: seen better days (like Southport itself). Second impressions: very shabby, not very clean. Third impressions: I want to go somewhere else. When I checked in, I asked for a quiet room. When I got back at 10.30pm I discovered that my room was directly above the bar. Which was playing live music. When I went down to reception to complain, they argued with me. They also told me “We don’t have any quiet rooms left.” I suspect the truth is that they don’t have any quiet rooms at all. One side of the hotel is on a pedestrian alley which is full of pubs and nightclubs. One side is on the main road, with noise from road traffic and pedestrians, ie Saturday night drunks. (Also, bright light from streetlamps to also keep you awake.) And in the middle is the hotel’s own bar. I slept in three different rooms during my stay. One was in the roof with no window but with a skylight with no blinds so I was woken at dawn with light coming through. The room was very pokey and the bathroom so small that you couldn’t sit straight on the loo because the sink was in the way. Also, the bed was saggy. All three rooms were noisy. There were also issues with security. One night I was woken by a random person knocking on the door claiming to be from reception (he wasn’t). Turns out they keep the front door unlocked til 2.30am, and there are no checks on who can walk in. I did not choose to stay here – I was there for a conference. The conference organisers were charged £70 per room despite it being a block booking and despite prices of £35 being charged online. I would not put the value of the rooms above £35. In fact, based on my experience you would have to pay me to stay there again.

Currently staying in this hotwl as we speak the noise is awful been down yo ask for another room due to being 6 months pregnant and room being to hot not able to open window as the noise is awful to be told should have come down earlier well I did ask on booking never going to stay in this hofel again no sleep tonight for me awful

In the early hours of Wednesday 18th April we booked into the hotel exhausted. Check in had booked us two rooms instead of three but we agreed that could be sorted later. The decor of the reception and building was in a general dire state, showing signs of wear and tear and general old age. The room was in a poor state, with no cold water in the shower meaning if we wanted a scolding hot shower we could. The TV in the room wasn’t working along with various lights. At breakfast we had to laugh as even the cutlery was bent! In fairness the staff were pleasant and apologetic and we were refunded for our cancelled nights.

Noisy, old, needs renovating. Don’t stay on 2nd floor or at all if you can find somewhere else, really noisy, impossible to sleep because of noise from disco, bars below and hard beds. Rooms old and very very basic, curtains hanging off rails not a nice place nobody even turned up to make up the room. The worst hotel and I use the word hotel loosely that we have ever stayed in.

we have stayed here before and we just wanted a night away as a break we noticed our room could do with a little updating (TLC) but it served our needs for 1 night we had breakfast included and we noticed a few changes at breakfast they have now installed a tea/coffee machine they seemed to have less choice only 1 fruit juice and also they have installed a toaster so you can make your own toaster we also find the parking a bonus as they have 2 car parks one on site and one across the road

One of the worst hotels I ever stayed in. We were over the hotels nightclub which did not close till 03.30. Then the noise from people kicking out was horrendous. On the night we stayed the man in the room opposite got so drunk his wife kicked him out and he was banging in the corridor all night. The room was disgusting and before anyone says what do you expect for s budget hotel we actually paid 259 pounds which is certainly not budget the room was disgusting filthy and dropping to bits. The hotel was freezing. And I got bit in the bed causing an allergic reaction. The hotel said spa and hotel. Well yes if you call gym and pool a spa. We booked this for my birthday has I had been very poorly and was looking forward to it. Had I spoken with my sister I would’ve known she had the same experience a few years ago. Disgusting disgraceful and I wouldn’t put my dog here. Thankfully we had a good weekend despite this. And the one star is because it wouldn’t let me leave none. So clean towels that’s for.

came t stay here 9 to 13 april 2018 the room we stayed in was clean and tidy food was loverly for our disabled daughter staff did everting t help us as our daughter is fussy eater can not wait t come back next year mr caplin

A very old and dated hotel in need of some tlc. Dirty old net curtains and floral carpets and wallpaper. The room was spacious and warm but felt like I was trapped in the 1970s. The stale smell of beer was not welcoming on arrival. Unfortunately I will not be returning.

After reading the reviews before we left we where very sceptical about going here. We pulled up outside and yes it does look pretty run down, we tried to park in the car park which was a waste of time (fitting around 10 cars) so managed to park on the road just behind for £5 (Carnt complain) we checked in and reception staff where nice and friendly. After we noticed our tv didn’t work and we phoned reception the man came up (about 20 minutes later) and we ended up having to swap rooms. Because of this we ended up seeing 2 rooms, neither of which where dirty or smelly. Bathrooms in need of a bit of TLC but other than that they where fine. We had dinner bed and breakfast, tea was pretty standard with not overly loads of choice but again for the price we couldn’t complain! Breakfast was spot on, the main downside was where you ate was pretty small and no atmosphere. It was noises outside our room at night with drunk people, but this isn’t the hotels fault. All in all if your looking for a cheap stay then give it a go! It’s better than most of these reviews say! Just don’t pull back the net curtains on the corridors and look around the back of the hotel as that’s pretty horrible, but you’ve got to go out of your way to see it! (Pictures included)

Yes the place is old/tired but for the money we paid we literally cannot fault it!!! The rooms are not amazing but they are spotless. NO NOISE WHATSOEVER in our rooms. Reception were extremely helpful moving is rooms when we first arrived The water is piping hot and bathroom is clean if not in amazing condition. The swimming pool/sauna area is fine and clean. Breakfast this morning was Lovely!! Again basing this review on the PRICE we paid
