I have just returned from a fantastic Monday to Friday short break at The Talbot Hotel in Southport.
Myself and 12 others had booked a mystery tour break, which turned out to be Southport and we couldn't have picked a better hotel if we'd tried.
The hotel was very comfortable, clean and warm. The room, which I shared with a friend was excellent, plenty of drawer space and for a change - real coathangers in the wardrobe. The on-suite had constant hot water with a shower over the bath and towels, which were of good quality, were changed as and when required.
This hotel is a family run affair and the owner and his staff couldn't do enough for us.
Originally no entertainment had been arranged but on the Monday night he laid on a couple of games of bingo and when he saw that we were all enjoying ourselves he decided to lay on entertainment for the rest of the week.
On the Tuesday night he gave us a Christmas Dinner, with all the trimmings, party hats, crackers, glass of wine and Santa Claus even made an appearance with gifts for everyone and he arranged for a singer to entertain us after we had been more than suitably fed.
On the Wednesday he re-created Hogmanay, which was fantastic, with an accordianist supplying the music for us that night.
And on the last night he arranged another singer / comedian who was also very good and kept us all up on the dance floor again.
As for the food - it was delicious - absolutely no complaints from anyone, it was always delivered hot and the staff were excellent, they were all young and very efficient.
I would certainly go back to this Hotel and I would recommend anyone going to Southport to book into the Talbot Hotel. I'd rate it at 5 star plus.
