Have been coming for years and still the same standard. Staff are wonderful from reception, restaurant and everyone. Room very modern and quiet, evening meal was quite wonderful with great steaks, breakfast a bit busy but that is down to covid restrictions. A very very pleasant weekend Southport a bit tired but this hotel made up for it and will certainly be back. We had a blissful time. Moreread less

We were a party of 30, including kids and babies.
Had a great stay at the hotel despite the weather.
On Saturday night we had a dinner party for all of us. The staff could not have been better: very courteous and attentive. The meal was also a credit to the hotel.
There was a very noisy rave in the main function room so we went to a smaller more cosy room. I would not have liked to have used the main restaurant during the rave.
Excellent breakfast, great bar service, but would have liked some real ale.
Parking also convenient and straightforward.
Downside: I found the hotel very difficult to contact before the event, with messages left and calls not returned. Reception was also variable. We did not expect the quality and service to be so good as I was not confident because of how we had been dealt with prior to the event. Moreread less

Location is great - near the shops, the pier, Kings Gardens. The hotel was spotless as was our room - the only negative for the room was no fridge. The room had tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer, iron and ironing board which is great but a fridge would have made a difference. The staff were all friendly and professional - members of staff don’t wear specific uniform which is in keeping with the boutique style of hotel so it did give quite a casual impression but this didn’t detract from how hard they worked and the service they gave. The underground parking at £10.00 per night is good value for peace of mind and security. The outdoor terrace is lovely and it was so relaxing watching the sun set over the lake from there. Breakfast was buffet style and was very nice. We had evening meal in the hotel one night and enjoyed all three courses - the calamari was delicious! We had read reviews about the dining room seeming like a school canteen but we didn’t see it like that at all - again the rustic furniture is in keeping with the Boutique style of the Hotel Moreread less

If I have one negative reflection on our time at this great venue, it would be in the unacceptable time we spent sitting in Reception waiting - for a number of hours - to be checked into our pre-booked room, and to be informed that the rooms at the Bliss hotel was devoid of refrigerators - something, as a senior Reviewer with TripAdvisor - I have never known in all my twenty years experience of staying at 4 Star rated hotels.

Our room, 414, was quite spacious, had adequate wardrobe/drawers storage space for our clothes; a large king-sized bed; two comfortable chairs; and a bathroom that was well equipped with toiletries and spotlessly clean. Good work, Batha and the Cleaning Team, you do a wonderful job to keep the guests rooms clean, neat, and tidy. We were also well supplied with tea/coffee and biscuits during our four night stay. Top marks.
Safety from infection seemed to be a real priority at the Bliss, Southport. Every table at breakfast was cleaned and re-laid before being used by hotel guests; and the tables were spaced out to avoid too close contact with others.
Food at the Bliss is really good. We booked breakfast only, but have no doubts whatsoever, that the lunch/dinner meals/conditions were just as nutritious and organised as the breakfast sittings most definitely were. Great work, Bliss Restaurant Staff and Chefs!
All in all, I would fully recommend the Bliss Hotel, Southport as a most credible and enjoyable holiday experience, and would return there in a heartbeat, if the opportunity presents itself again.
Well done, Director James Wood, and all your most professional Staff at the Bliss Hotel, Southport!

Hotel is clean and well run, staff are very good, friendly and professional. We had booked our time for breakfast ahead, COVID restrictions obviously affect the way things operate but it was fairly straightforward and we enjoyed the selection. Excellent sausages! Good soundproofing and comfort beds.Hotel is well situated and the underground car park is a bonus. Will definitely be our first choice for our next trip to Southport. I have given 5 stars as I think it is worth that but I do have some observations. The restaurant area is like a canteen and not a welcoming or comfortable place to eat. It’s OK for breakfast but I wouldn’t want to have dinner there. Reception is on the first floor and the ground floor entrance is basic and on par with entry to a car park at a shopping centre. Outside signage is also basic and little thought seems to have been given to making a good impression. I suggest that management go across the road and look at the hotel objectively. Moreread less

Great, central location, near the pier, lake and shops. Paid £269 for a double room with breakfast, slightly expensive but even the basic hotels in Southport were charging around £200 with breakfast, so not much more, and worth every penny. We loved the hotel, it felt like we were abroad. Lovely room 402, large with full length window views to the side, over the lake, and to the front to town. Toiletries provided in little bottles, and replenished. A kettle was provided with tea, coffee and biscuits, again replenished. Lots of towels and the room very clean. We checked in late the first day so our choice for breakfast was 7.30am or 11.00 am, we opted for 11.00am, but booked 10am for our second day. Arriving at 11.00am, no queue, plenty of items available for a hearty full English, with toast, cereals and preserves. Youghurt available too and pastries (limited as most had gone at earlier sittings). The only slight complaint I had is that at the 11.00am sitting the hot items, were not hot, edible but luke warm. A microwave in the dining room would help. Second day at 10.00am the food was hot. There is a lovely outdoor rooftop area with tables, chairs and a few deck chairs, which overlooks the lake. This area is lit up in the evening and lovely to sit out with drinks. Drink prices OK for beer and cider, although I think £8.00 for a glass of red wine is quite steep. Each and every member of staff was lovely and a credit to the hotel. We parked in the underground car park and all was fine. No charge. Good little bar under pier with live music during the day. All in all we had a fabulous stay and will definitely book this hotel again!read less

Worked hard and noticeably long hours. Hotel in a perfect location with great views. Great lounge bar with a buzzy atmosphere in the evenings.
Very clean and rooms well equipped. Massive bed in the superior double rooms (although a little hard for my liking, but that's down to personal taste).
I would love to see a spa and pool put in on the ground floor as it seems to be an empty space, but obviously wouldn't knock a score down for something that doesn't exist!
A great couple of days in comfortable surroundings.read less

Rooms really comfortable - we had 2 big double beds for 3 of us - lovely shower gel and big fluffy towels.
Parking is available underground, beneath the hotel and easy to access, but you’ll pay extra per night.
The breakfast were great - buffet - hot and cold but served to you to help social distancing … plenty of choice and toasty. We ate in the restaurant one night of our stay and booked a table on arrival . Food wasn’t lovely again, and good choice, bar staff and waiting staff really friendly.

We were lucky enough to stay in the Penthouse Suite for a night at Bliss. The hotel was fantastic from start to finish. All the staff we encountered from the reception, to the bar and the restaurant were all incredibly friendly and welcoming. They made a fuss of our children making them feel relaxed and welcome.
This modern, clean and tidy hotel is child friendly and located on the doorstep of all the main attractions (its right next door to the pier). It has its own carpark located underneath the hotel which is free to use for guests.
The Penthouse is an amazing room which has its own living area (with feature bath) and separate bedroom area. There is a rainfall shower located in the bathroom as well as the feature bath located in the living room area which makes watching the television in the bath a real novelty. There is also a wraparound balcony with outstanding views of the marine lake and seafront. The room has a large number of floor to ceiling windows making it very light and airy. The aircon had two control points in both the living area and bedroom.
There were bottled toiletries provided in the bedroom branded as Prija.
The hotel provided Teepee Jungle type beds for our two children which we believe can be arranged with the hotel for an extra fee. Both our children absolutely loved this experience!
The room and hotel has certainly been decorated to a high and very modern standard.
Breakfast in the morning is served buffet style and you had to book a slot when checking in which really makes a difference as there were no huge queues to get food. There was a decent offering of both continental and cooked breakfast options. Staff were there to assist and very friendly and flexible to our needs, again a fuss was made of our children.
We did truly have a magical, relaxing time at The Bliss Hotel and it served as a perfect area to explore Southport including the Pleasureland.
Overall we were looked after incredibly well and will certainly be returning. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Southport.read less

Absolutely stunning, not sure about the bath in the lounge, but it's fabulously big and the shower in the bathroom huge,love the bed so deep and comfy you really don't want to get out. There is underfloor heating and heated towel rail in the bathroom, double doors onto a small 'grassed' balcony overlooking the sea and promenade. We have eaten in quite simply because its good food, excellent service and prices not too bad. We had found going out and getting food very challenging a lot of places understaffed and others only doing snacks.
Once again this hotel has excelled at every level, will definitive returning very soonread less

I will forever be in a debt of gratitude to everyone there, James and every member of the team, for their service, attentive, efficient, bright and welcoming-nothing seems any trouble.There is a sense of family values and a culture of blending casual, unpretentious and fun loving with the atmosphere of a relaxed holiday in a quality environment.
I am privileged to know of the owners exciting plans and there is the prospect of even greater things to come for them and Southport.

We booked the bed breakfast and dinner rate. The room was lovely with 2 chairs and a table so we could sit by the window and relax with a tea or coffee. The bed was very comfortable and it's the first time I have slept well in any hotel without getting backache. There was plenty of storage space, cooling aircon and the bathroom was fine with an over bath shower. Thankfully there was a grab rail as the bath is deep so it could be tricky getting in and out. I am vegan so was a bit concerned as the vegan food offer in UK hotels is usually dire, not so in The Bliss. They have a 3 course vegan dinner menu with 5 or 6 choices per course. The food was delicious and portions large. I am not a hot breakfast person but was informed by staff that the hash browns, baked beans and tomatoes were suitable for vegans. They had various little boxes of cereal available, pastries for those who don't avoid dairy products, toast, yogurt (including soya yogurt), fruit salad etc. The staff were very polite and helpful and promptly sorted out a couple of issues with bar and restaurant bills. It didn't concern me at all that they were casually dressed and considering the Covid measures which were still in place the service was good. Everywhere was clean with plenty of hand gel available. I quite liked the decor too. I would love to retun and hope that they put fridges back in the rooms at some point as the soya milk I took from home to have in tea quickly went off due to the hot weather. The only slight niggles with the room was common to most hotels...no hook on the back of the bathroom door to hang your toiletries bag and if you want to use your own hair tools the electric socket over the dressing table is too low so I couldn't plug my straighteners in. We will definitely return to this lovely hotel.read less
