Very nice place

I booked the bed and breakfast to take a short break away with my husband who is disabled. We were greeted in a very warm and welcoming manner, and then told of the health and safety regulations (fire alarms, meeting point etc.) We were then taken on a quick tour of the ground floor. The lounge has a large tv, plenty of books and other reading matter, there was also a daily newspaper to read.

Along with them were leaflets of whats on in the area and where to visit, eat and drink. Read more

I think that my stay from start to finish was amazing. The hotel was emaculate and very well presented was not expecting such a luxourious exterior and interior to the hotel. The service of the propriotors was second to none they could not do anything more to help with anything that I needed, such as because I am a vegeterian they sorted me out with a vegeterian breakfast in the morning which not alot of hotels do.

Thank you very much for taking the trouble to do this review. Doors were an option but we decided we could keep the shower areas cleaner with machine washable curtains. I did do a "demo shower" in all the rooms after completion because, like you, I don't like to "wear" the curtain while showering. I thought the test drive showed the cubicles were big enough to avoid the problem, however thanks again for the constructive comment. I will check again.

Refreshing change!

We stayed at the Birkdale B&B while visiting friends and were very pleased with the quality of the facilities for the price we paid. We have stayed in a lot of B&B's over the years and they are often outdated and only seem aimed at the older traveller/family market ie breakfast at 7.30, check out at 8.30 - not the case here, they seem to respond to all types of visitor. Had a lovely breakfast at 10am (it was Sunday after all!!) clean bright modern rooms and friendly, professional service. Read more

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us and excuse the late reply. Because we changed the use of the building we were required to have fire lobbies on most of the rooms, which meant we were restricted spacewise. Hence the dining arrangement. We were unsure how this would go down but we have found that most people seem to enjoy the conversation at breakfast, especially lone female travellers. However, thank you for your constructive comment.

Dislikes?
No heating in dining room. Heating switched off overnight so late night use of lounge and shower could be a problem in winter. The wash basin was far to small.

A very comfortable, welcoming B and B, everything you need and more!! You will return!

We stayed 2 nights, on arrival we weregiven a very warm welcome ans cup of coffee by owner, Marion. She was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us some very useful information. The room was of a high standard and very accessible for Mum as she has difficulty walking and with stairs. It was a great base for our travels around Southport and we were made to feel very welcome throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for Marion. Read more

Comfort inn Birkdale with detailed guest care

We only needed to stay for a one night stopover in Southport. The welcome was extremely friendly and every care was taken to ensure our utmost comfort. The Birkdale was spotlessly clean and all the facilities were more than comfortable. We will be back and look forward to our next visit. Well done Birkdale. Read more

Description

The Guesthouse was fully refurbished in 2010. The result is a spacious and relaxing building which will provide you with a comfortable and relaxed stay. We offer 5 well presented ensuite rooms, which have flat screen TV, WiFi, a hospitality tray, free off road car parking, and a guest lounge with TV. As well as the usual double and twin bedrooms, we can offer a family suite and an M2 pack disabled room. In addition the building complies with all the most recent stringent saftey & sound insulation regulations so you will not be kept awake by another guests TV! Whether you are an individual traveller, a couple or family, golfers, business people or a tourist we can offer you a comfortable and relaxed stay. Whether on business or on holiday, start your day with one of our terrific full English breakfasts, sourced from local suppliers. If you have special dietary requirements please contact us and we will try our best to provide you with a tasty start to the day. Our location is great. We are only 5 minutes outside Southport but we are away from the bustle of the city centre but within easy reach of all Southport's amenities. We are 3 minutes' (yes really only 3!) walk from Birkdale village centre, which has a great selection of restaurants, bars and shops. We have excellent transport links to Liverpool via road, bus (outside door) and train (5 minutes walk to station) and are within easy reach of the M6, M58 and M57. We are located on the UK's own "Golf Coast" and are within 15 minutes drive of 5 championship Golf Courses, with a selection of several other private and municipal courses nearby. Our family suite consists of two separate ensuite rooms which are reached by a single lockable door from the main corridor. This provides you parents with some privacy but ensures that your family is always secure. Our disabled room is situated on the ground floor with great access to the car park, dining room and lounge and a second room suitable for a carer.

To get into the Guest House there are seven small steps with a hand rail on each side. There is also a wheelchair lift. Once inside the building the guest room with disabled facilities, lounge and dining room are all on one level. We have a dedicated disabled car parking space next to the lift at the front of the building.
