“Don't go!!!!!”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

The photographs when booking this hotel are not a true representation. Arrived 8pm to be met at the door by drunken guests which turned out the next morning to be staff, obviously a private party going on but this wasn't explained to us. Pint pots on the reception. Taken to our room which was very dusty, daughter couldn't sleep in put up bed as it had collapsed in the middle. Bin in bathroom full of rubbish. TV on dressing table.

Breakfast in the morning was a health hazard. Dining room hadn't been cleaned from party night before. Floor was sticky, dead flies near table. Bacon/Sausages obviously re-heated because had congealed fat. Hash browns frozen grey inside. Eggs still runny not cooked. To top breakfast off staff started arriving to clean in hungover state. This hotel seriously needs to be inspected.

Room Tip: Do not bother!!!

Our room was tiny. Nowhere to sit down. No chair in room. Bar was a tiny area which would sit about four people. We thought we were going to a four star hotel. So total misrepresentation. This was more like a boarding house than even a B & B. No iron. Very disappointed. Told curtly when arrived early booking in time was 2 o'lock. No effort made whatsoever. A dire experience.

My friend arranged her mother's 90th birthday party at the Albert Victoria with a buffet and relatives and friends of the family. The buffet was excellent and very attentive staff. It was a lovely evening and well enjoyed by everyone.

Definately not 4 star, room ground floor over car park,7am someone left engine running for 5 minutes . Outside our window , people stood smoking not very private at all .En suite very small could hardly turn round . Had to get own toast that's ok but it was cold before scrambled egg arrived to go with it . Someone please reassess this hotel not right that people should think it 4 star .

My husband and I have just returned from staying in what we paid for as a standard double room (Room No. 2). We arrived early and knew the room should of only been available at 2 , however the very pleasant ladies on reception checked and our room was ready and were shown to it immediately. I was very impressed by the size and cleanliness of the room. Our room was on the ground floor and we could see out to the promenade. The bed was a king size with very crisp white sheets ! and very comfortable. We had enough clean towels for the length of our stay the bathroom was small but adequate and very clean. The kitchenette was a bonus and didn't look out of place at all. Complete with kettle , crockery , cutlery, sink , microwave and fridge ! The soft furnishing all matched. I cannot fault this hotel at all and would definately book again should we find the need to stay over in Southport again.
