Although we now live in Derbyshire, I was born in Lancashire and like to go back there at least once a year. This year, we thought we'd give Southport a try. Nothing wrong with the resort but perhaps the Prince of Wales hotel was a mistake. The once-splendid Prince of Wales was shabby and careworn in obvious need of TLC. Our room was pleasantly furnished and quite large but the 'double bed' consisted of two singles pushed together and out of sync with the headboards which were crooked, as were the pictures. One of the mattresses was relatively comfortable but the other had the springs poking through it. My husband, bless him, offered to swap sides and said it was like sleeping on a pile of coal. I left a complaint about that so hopefully the mattress will be replaced for future guests. The staff were quite helpful, if a little distant. We only had bed and breakfast but have no complaints whatsoever about the quality of food served at breakfast. The dining room staff were helpful and quite efficient. Despite its faded grandeur, we shan't be staying there again.
