Ramada Plaza Southport

Reviewed 5 December 2011

Booked 2 nights via Late Rooms at a bargain price. Including breakfasts we paid no more than the Premier Inn just over the road, (our original plan). The Ramada Plaza Hotel is an ideal location, very clean throughout, with free underground car parking. The breakfast, even at £10 each was very good value. We did not eat at the hotel in the evenings instead opting for the restaurants over the bridge in the Ocean Plaza Leisure Park adjacent to the Premier Inn.
Our room was on the 5th floor with a lovely view over the bridge and lake. The bed was the most comfortable I have slept in for a long while however, I was disturbed the second night by the gale force winds blowing at the window. Free internet connection was available in the room and worked well. The hotel is just a couple of minutes walk to the town center and its shops, restaurants and railway station.
Leaving our car at the hotel, we took the Merseyrail to Liverpool for a days shopping, again a bargain at £4.50 each. A 45 minute journey takes you bang into the city center shops.
This is a perfect location for a stay in Southport or a visit to the Liverpool area.

We have stayed twice here, once for pleasure and once on a business trip.
The hotel is in a lovely postion and we had rooms higher up which give you a good view. The rooms are spacious and the beds extremely comfortable.
Breakfast was excellent. We did not eat dinner in the hotel as we like the It|alian across the road called 51.
We find the staff very friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
If you are in the area do not hesitate to stay here!

Room Tip: Try to get one higher up to take advantage of the view

I had booked the overnight stay at the hotel at a really speacial B and B rate. We arrived an hour earlier than the check-in time but were given our room without any problem. Because of the price we surprised to be given such a lovely lake view room. Everyone was friendly and the room was comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask if there is a lake view available.

Just got back from our 4th visit to this hotel in the past 17 months and again had a great stay, me and my husband went for our 24th Wedding Anniversary for 1 night b&b stay.
Good Points, in a lovely position on the Marine Lake, The rooms are very spacious, have everything that you would need and the beds are very comfortable, and there are extra pillows in the wardrobe if required. The breakfast was lovely - all self serve, including fruit juices, cereals, bowls of fruit so you could make a fruit salad, hot cooked breakfast - the only thing missing was beans/chopped tomatoes, there was also bread for toast, coissants and danish patries. The bar is really nice but the drinks are expensive - but then all hotel drinks are.
My only real negative is the lifts, there is only 2, you always have to wait such a long time for them and then when they do arrive you can't get in them, which isn't great especially when you have walking difficulties and you are on the 5th floor (which we were), you have no choice but to wait, and even when you do eventually get in one, they stop at every floor even though no-one is waiting to get in or anyone getting out. On this occassion there was only 1 lift working which made the normal issue even worse. (we even heard hotel staff complain about the lifts)
Overall this would not stop us returning but this has been a problem every time we have visited which for such a new hotel is not great.

Room Tip: The views are stunning the higher you are.

Many thanks for the recent review, I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us at the hotel. I am sorry that on this occasion 1 of our lifts was out of order, we do try all we can to ensure the best possible service and our commitment ensures that in the main we do achieve this.

It is good to hear that the lifts will not put you off returning.

Great location on the seafront. The marine lake rooms are especially good. The hotel is clean with good lounges and a good value restaurant. Parking is free and directly underneath the hotel The only downside on our stay as the fact that one of the lifts was out of order which was a nightmare and meant a 15 minute wait if you wanted to use a lift. If you can get a deal this may e better than the Vincent which says loads

Room Tip: If you can get a deal on a marine lake room it's worth it

A few days visiting a childhood favourite seaside town but with a bit of added luxury. The Ramada Plaza was a very modern and friendly hotel in an old English seaside resort. Great room with really friendly staff and the hotel is in a prime position. Visited Athony Gormley's "Another Place" not quite sure if it was art or another artist taking the Michael !!

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be in a good position.
