This is our third Premier Inn stay this year, the group certainly knows the business now. We stayed 5 nights. This hotel must be in the best position for any holiday maker or visitor to Southport. Out of the door and onto the pier (half way) or 5 minutes walk onto Lord Street and the shops. The railway station is 10 mins. walk for stations to Liverpool or Manchester and a £4.80 off peak pass covers Mersey trains and buses and the Mersey Ferry if you time it right!
Barbara on reception was very cheery and helpful. The room we had was on the ground floor, I won't go into the rooms facilities as they are all pretty much the same everywhere and much research and feedback has got the formula about as good as it gets for this type of hotel. Housekeeping was to the usual high standard and It was quiet inspite of the fact that the Ocean Plaza, where the hotel is situated, is home to several restaurants,buffet style Chinese and Pizza place as well as a Vue cinema. Parking is barrier controlled and free to hotel guests and Plaza patrons which seems to work well, just have your ticket validated by reception. The hotel backs onto the Marine Park which is currently undergoing a big refubishment of the Venetian bridge, shelters are being totally restored as well as flowerbeds, lighting and paths. This has been a long time coming and will add to the towns appeal as a tourist resort as well as local pride. We enjoyed our meal at Weatherspoons on Lord Street, also good for breakfast and only 5 mins. from hotel. There are so many places to eat you are spoiled for choice. We only used the adjacent Brewers Fayre once as the breakfast is overpriced if you don't have kids to eat free. Morrisons is 5 minutes across the field at the back of the hotel along with the amusement park and miniature railway. Don't miss the promenade with its array of exercise machines...FREE! There is so much to do and see here a week may not be long enough.
