Negative Reviews

Showing its Age

The Prince of Wales Hotel is showing its Victorian age but unfortunately not in a good way, particularly in the condition of guest rooms and public areas.

The Clientele is Decidedly Mature

This Southport hotel attracts a decidedly mature clientele. Look elsewhere if you want to stay at a property where you can mix and mingle with younger guests.

No Wi-Fi in Guest Rooms

You’ll have to hang out in the lobby if you want to check your email. Wi-Fi is free, but service can be patchy and you'll be keeping company with many other guests scrambling for chairs to do the same.

Breakfast is Tepid at Best

Tepid food and a tepid response best describes how guests feel about the breakfast buffet. If starting your day with a hot and flavourful English breakfast is important, the Prince of Wales Hotel may disappoint you.
