Reviews - The Dukes Folly Hotel

4Self Classified Small Hotel Ratings explained
11 Duke Street , Southport , PR8 1LS
The finest of Southport hotels, the Dukes Folly Hotel is ideally located near the corner of Duke Street and Lord Street, Southport's world famous Victorian Boulevard.

The Dukes Folly Hotel is a classic boutique hotel in the heart of Southport, North West England, near Liverpool. The hotel is said to be built in 1861 as when the first record can be found nowadays. Unlike other chain hotels with unit room design, Dukes Folly is well maintained and run with its Charactor Rooms. Every room is unit. Comfortable beds and inspiring enviroment together with delicious heartedly prepared breakfast are all our attitudes to serve our customers. Once you have stayed in the hotel, we are sure you can relax and enjoy as much as you are at home. The homely lounge and spacious bar areas equipped with a 50 inches screen TV are the perfect places for relaxation and gathering. Breakfast is of the highest quality and finishes by 10.30 am allowing you to have brunch for the day. Our checkout time is also the traditional one at 12.00pm, so you will never rush to the schedule once you check in Dukes Folly Hotel.

WILLIAM SUTTON was Commonly Known as the Old Duke, The Founder of Southport. He was born at Churchtown North Meols A.D. 1752 and died there May 22 1840. He erected almost upon this spot A.D. 1792 the First House in what is now the flourishing Town of Southport then a wilderness of Sandhills, the house originally called 'Dukes Folly' was afterwards know as the Original Hotel. A Memorial Tablet, taken from its walls has been placed on the N.E.side oft this Column and this street has received the name of Duke Street in remembrance of the Old Duke.

Southport is one of the nice place in UK. It is quiet, peaceful and beautiful. There are seashore, lagoon, fun park, sand beaches and so on. Fesitvals are all year running, the Jazz Festival, the Flower Show, the Air Show, the Golf Grand Opening. Victorian buildings are everywhere along the Lord Street. Lord Street is the first Boulevard before the Champs Elysees in Paris of France. It was told that the exciled Prince Louis Napolean lived in Southport in 1838 and admired the long straight wide tree-lined Lord Street. Later he remembered the Lord Street's elegance when he returned to France as Emperor and he transformed Paris with its now famous Boulevard.

Dukes Folly Hotel is ideal for singles, couples, families, groups, golf societies and businesses, small conferences as well as event functions such as wedding and anniversary....

A Good Night
We had a very enjoyable stay - the hotel is an older building with all the character that that brings personally I prefer this to a modern new build clinnical and soulless hotel. Our room was excelent (we opted for the four poster bed) although we did find the wind rattled the door somewhat but that was easily resolved by jamming a bit of card under it ! . What really makes this hotel stand out is the staff, friendly and attentive they changed this from just another night in a hotel to one we would recommend to firends and family.

What do you expect for the money?
For the price you pay, this is excellent value accommodation. The staff were efficient and courteous, the room had everything which was advertised on the web-site. It was clean, presentable and comfortable although a little on the cramped side. I got a good night's sleep so the bed must have been comfortable. I took breakfast which was served quickly and was of good quality. The location was first class for my purpose, just off Lord Street and yet quiet and serene. All in all I got exactly what I paid for which was a decent room in a very satisfactory budget hotel/

Happy to recommend
The owner and staff are welcoming and helpful, and I felt comfortable as a lone traveller a long way from home. My room was cosy and had everything I needed, including a generous supply of tea and coffee facilities. I loved the slightly 'off the wall' decor (which was mostly on the wall), and the angled window. Breakfast was excellent and habit-forming. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family.
