Carlton Lodge
Ranked #27 of 41 Southport B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 October 2013

The Landlady Christine was very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. She made our stay most enjoyable. Our room was large, comfortable, clean with a massive amount of storage space (which is a bonus nowadays). The tea/coffee etc were replenished every day during our three days there (including biscuits). Breakfast was amazing - my partner had his usual 'fry-up' (which was large enough to keep him full until the afternoon) and I was spoilt with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon every morning. The little touches made it a great place to stay (loved the proper china cups at breakfast). It is in a central location and we found it the best hotel we have stayed in during the last 10-years we have been going to Southport. We will most definitely be back next year.

We have just returned from a four night break in Southport and stayed at the Carlton lodge. Christine the host was very welcoming and showed us straight to our room.The hotel was in a perfect location to wander around the shops or walk along the prom.The breakfast was excellent and there was a good choice from full English to smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Overall we had a very good experience and would stay here again and definitely recommend it. Thank you Christine and staff.

Enjoy an 'Old Fashioned' break. This could be called a traditional seaside Bed-and-Breakfast, but it is up-to-date service in a modern establishment. Comfortable, clean, convenient location, car park, cooked breakfast was great.

This was our first visit to Southport to attend a birthday party we stayed at the Carlton Lodge having read the reviews. We are either very fussy or got the wrong B&B !!!!!! You couldn't swing a cat in the en-suite seriously, had to squeeze past the sink to the toilet, we thought that sheets and one blanket we hasten to add were a thing of the past. The sewage smell from the bathroom sink wasn't pleasant either. Yes we would agree that the bed was quite comfortable. Breakfast the first of our three mornings was good until the toast came with green mould spots hence we didn't have breakfast there the other 2 mornings. Southport is a great town but the experience in this B&B left us feeling a bit disappointed to say the least.

I could not believe you were reviewing my guest house. the en suite is not the largest but is fully functional clean and certainly does not have any problems of sewage.17 other people fully enjoyed their breakfast as mentioned by one party in their review. No adverse comments were received when enquiring of yourselves if your breakfast was all right.
The tourist board grades my bedding as being professional and flexible for all seasons. Im sorry if yiou did not enjoy your stay but any issues you had should have been raised at the time

I have stayed in several similar places in Southport this was easily the best. I booked a single room and unlike the others I have stayed in there was room to swing a Cat :-)
Very friendly and good value for money. The breakfast was excellent.
