Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great location to visit Liverpool. Free parking, handy for walking along the waterfront. A 20 minute walk from the Liver Building, The Cavern Club, cathedrals and other visitor attractions. Comfortable room overlooking the water, only problem small shower. The staff were polite and helpful and made our stay enjoyable.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed at the Dolby Hotel to attend the 'Exercise Patience' Convention at the Arena. Most of the guests in the hotel were there for the same reason, and everyone commented what an excellent stay it had been. The hotel and all the friendly staff were all fantastic. Very accommodating, allowing us to park our cars in the carpark in the morning, despite not checking in until the afternoon on our arrival, adjusting breakfast times in the restaurant to allow for our early start each morning, and allowing us to leave the cars there all day after checkout. These extra touches show real customer care and were so appreciated. Friendly, smiling staff members were a pleasure to deal with, the rooms were cleaned each day and a good standard. Breakfast really tasty too, and all in all, couldn't fault our stay. Great location. Thank you to everyone. Hope to be back next year!

Only issue was heating in the room. The window curtain above the small heater directs the heat straight out the window. Also, the heater timer. The heater goes off during the night and you wake to a cold room. First time I’ve stayed since you changed to a breakfast buffet. A reasonable deal but the quality of the sausages is woeful. Otherwise, everything was good and staff were lovely. Will certainly be staying again. Got to commend the member of staff called Dave. As I arrived he came out to the car. He’d seen on my notes that I was on dialysis and he came out to see if I needed a hand taking things to my room. Exceptional proactive hospitality,

We had a couple of nights stay here before Christmas. The staff are all delightful and so helpful. Especially the deputy manager. I had had a hip replacement so they changed our room to a ground floor room without us having to ask. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Having mince pies on the reception desk was a nice festive touch. As other reviews have said the place is spotless and we had a very comfortable stay.

Had a compact room which was perfectly adequate for our overnight stay. Comfortable bed, slept well. Tiny bathroom , towels, shower cap, soap provided. Plenty of hot water. Ample coffee/tea provided and more available at reception if required. Very small restaurant menu but food was acceptable. Parking on site was a bonus for city centre hotel.

Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Although we are a budget hotel, we do try to offer a little more in our rooms than some other budget hotels, by offering extras such as a hairdryer, TV and tea & coffee that is refreshed every day, so I am glad to see that you felt we were good value for money. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us overall, and we hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Zaac

We had a really great stay here. Lovely, welcoming & friendly staff. Parking is included which is fantastic. It's a brilliant location for the arena, Albert docks and a little walk into the centre. We even got a room with a view! Couldn't have wished for more for the price we paid! Thank you.
