Bosses at a landmark hotel in Southport say it’s great to be back after reopening last week for the first time in months.

The Bliss Hotel in Southport reopened to guests and restaurant customers alike from Friday (July 31st) and are part of the Eat Out To Help Out scheme.

Staff had been working hard behind the scenes to make the hotel safe and secure ahead of the reopening.

A spokesperson for the hotel said it was ‘great to see so many familiar faces’ return.

The reopening comes after months of turmoil for the Bliss brand, after a number of staff were made redundant at the hotel’s sister site, the Waterfront which included Southport Theatre and Convention Centre.
