- "Great hotel well located in the heart of Southport. We stayed for a weekend and enjoyed the room and the hotel very much - we were well looked after by the friendly staff who couldn't do enough to please - 10/10. Our room was a good size and the en-suite well laid out and the shower pressure terrific. Breakfasts were buffet style with lots of choice and the coffee was freshly brewewd... Will return and recommend without hesitation."
- "The hotel was amazing - for the little we paid for the room the value was so surprising! Our room had a great view, plus it had lots of amenities you'd normally find at a much more expensive place. Breakfasts were great to and inc in the room rate, so it just gets better. The hotel was a bit threadbare in places, needs a bit of TLc but everything was fine and again for the rate was outstanding value! We would effeminately stay here at the Scarisbrick Hotel next time were in Southport which is a bi annual event for us. "
- "The hotel was excellent value for money, we stayed in the Birkdale suite which was fabulous. The breakfast was also top class, there were only 2 small issues, 1 was the car park cost £2 per night which is something I've never experienced before at a hotel and the lift was far too small for the amount of people wishing to use it."
- "Very nicely located just out of Southport, we enjoyed a short pre Christmas break with friends and it was very relaxing, just what we were hoping for. On arrival the staff at reception were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our rooms were modern and stylish, very comfortable beds. Dinner and breakfast were excellent. We took full advantage of the pool, spa and fitness centre, all well maintained and looked after. The men are eager to return to use the golf course and we will be happy to accompany them for the spa ! "
Southport in the borough of Sefton, Merseyside, is a classic British seaside town with traditional charm mixed with modern architecture. The area is commonly referred to as England's golfing capital, and this is due to the fact that the area has the highest concentration of championship link golf courses in the country.
