My parents and I have been to Southport a coupple of times to visit my fathers parents before. Those times we usually stayed in an apartment or a hotel chosen by my grandparents. This time we stayed in the 'Nile Hotel' in Kingstreet (walking distance from the city centre). It was great. I really felt comfortable there because the staff is not as superficial as in the big hotel chains. The staff is friendly and the service is good.
All in all there is to say if you prefer a small hotel with a familial atmosphere, the Nile is exatly what you need.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Although only a few minutes walk away from the main boulevard, Lord Street, you will experience an undisturbed and quiet stay. All our comfortable en-suite bedrooms have been individually designed with an international theme and modern conveniences. You can choose a four poster bed or rooms with Jacuzzis. In summer you can relax eating in the Garden Restaurant or refresh with a cool pint or cocktail at the thatched Garden Bar. Whatever the reason, golf, conference, business, holiday or simply a weekend away, when in Southport why not experience our friendly family run Hotel. We know what service means. ... more less
