This hotel is absolutely superb. Very unique, amazing decor and very quirky. The staff were really friendly and couldn’t do more. Just a very comfortable and relaxing place to be. The location and views were amazing. Overlooks the Marina, has wonderful wrap round windows, roof terrace, outside spaces. I was there for business but will certainly be back for a leisure stay with friends. Have already recommended to friends and colleagues.

Location, location, location

In addition to our great staff, our location is one of the things that sets us apart, consistently getting 5 stars. But there’s more to us than a great building in a fabulous waterfront setting(though that does get talked about a lot!)

We’re the perfect hotel for an escape, with the coast and countryside on our doorstep. Southport’s independent shops, Victorian arcades and tree-lined Lord Street are just a stroll away. And if that’s not enough, we’re situated near the culturally cool cities of Liverpool and Manchester.

There are over 22 miles of coastline outside our doors for walking and cycling. You can explore the dunes and soak up the sunsets at Crosby, Formby and Ainsdale beaches, with the impressive Gormley art installation an added attraction.

For nature lovers there’s the nearby Formby red squirrel reserve as well as the 17 acres of the King’s Gardens. And If you love your golf, we’re perfectly positioned on England’s Golf Coast, the highest concentration of championship links courses anywhere in the world.

What our guests say

Here are some more reviews and recommendations that show why a stay with us will be one you’re sure to remember:

We had a mini-break in Southport, and decided to stay at the Bliss Hotel… what a beautiful place, spotlessly clean, pleasant, and helpful staff, overall, a great stay. I cannot fault anything about it. The Roof terrace was so nice in the evening, that we decided not to bother going out into the town, and had a meal and drinks there , watching the sunset over the water. When it gets darker it is beautifully lit too. Breakfast was great too, we had the full English. A very well earned 5 stars, and I am already planning a return visit.

The staff are amazing from the moment you arrive at reception, they made my little boy’s first hotel experience awesome. They fulfilled his request for a sea view room, they even left him a note wishing him a Happy Birthday. The rooms are pristine, right down to the complimentary shampoos etc in the bathroom. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff are lovely. The food both evening meal and breakfast was out of this world.
