“a lovely place to stay, and the price was right.”
Reviewed 2 June 2009

The rooms were excellent and the breakfasts were very tasty.
The hosts were very friendly, and we were only steps away from the shops and restaurants. My sister and I were there for about 4 days in 2005, and if we get back to Southport, that's where we will stay.

A most welcoming and friendly hotel ideally placed for a gentle stroll down Lord Street and it's many unique shops and restaurants or an evening stroll by the sea and delightful gardens.
It is also convenient for the station and a business trip into Liverpool (45 minute trip) and a wonderful way of combining business with a restful evening in a charming seaside town. The rooms at the Waterford have been furnished to a very high standard and with a great deal of charm. You will be spolit for choice at breakfast and the owners will make your stay comfortable and will look after your every need. I will certainly go back to the Waterford for business or for leisure.

This hotel, although quiet small, is run by Paul & Trina Meyler with more attention to detail and professionalism than many hotels that are both bigger and more expensive.

We only stayed only 1 night but we are already hooked and will return. You won't find a speck of dust or anything out of place no matter how hard you look. I stay in more than 50 hotels each year in the UK, Europe and the Far East and can honestly say that the breakfast is second only to the Dalmeny Hotel in St Annes near Lytham.

I would recommend to Peter & Trina to have a night there just to compare and and the final touch of quality to their establishment.

Stayed at the Waterford with my wife whilst visiting clients in the Southport area, Mr & Mrs Meylor were the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble - will definitely be coming back to Southport soon

An excellent hotel situated just off the sea front and well positioned for a walk down Lord St. The owners were very pleasant and although I stayed only one night in a very nice room with all amenities I look forward to a return visit for a longer stay. A very good breakfast which set me up for the day.

We spent an extremely enjoyable week at this excellent hotel. The room was spotlessly clean with everything we needed; a well fitted ensuite bathroom, armchairs, large soft towels, and a very good size tv. The bed was a comfortable six-foot kingsize and our room had a balcony with extensive views across the marina. There was a good choice of breakfast in an attractive dining room, and the owners made us feel very welcome throughout. We certainly hope to return to the Waterford in the future and we thoroughly recommend it to other travellers.

I stayed at The Waterford for a week away with my mum. We arrived to a very friendly welcome by the owner and shown to our lovely room. We had stayed at The Waterford before, when we stayed before the room was lovely, since we stayed last time the room had been refurbished to a very high standard with absoultely everything you need, comfortable beds, nice bathroom with bath and power shower, flat screen TV and even a fridge! The breakfast was lovely with excellent choice of menu. The owners are very friendly and nothing is ever too much trouble. The hotel is ideally situated to all attractions, just round the corner from Lord Street and Promenade. We will definately be returning to The Waterford again and would recommend the hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Southport.
