“Never again”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Just arrived home from the Base Cumberland St Apartments in Liverpool...and I couldn't be happier to be home.

For starters...the decór- tacky. The wardrobe's doors in the bedroom were broken, there was black grime all around the bath which was very off putting..there were chips all over the work tops and the tv stand, and the tv...which was absolutely tiny. Just didn't match up to their "home from home" feel which they portray.

Didn't sleep at all during my stay...should have just gone home. They don't warn you before you arrive the apartment so...I think I should. You're staying right in front of a nightclub...which gets ridiculously noisy. On the first night we had some building work going on from 6pm till 6am too..which resulted in me having to lay in bed with my fingers in my ears.

So...overall, honestly...don't bother, that would be my advice to you. I wasted £230 on two sleepless nights.

The apartment we stayed at Duke Street above Base office.
We were 2 adults (father and daughter) with children 3 and 6 weeks old.
The main entry to the apartments were filthy with rubbish laying around so not the most appealing !
The apartment did not even smell nice and on inspection the carpets were heavily stained with threadbare curtains.The worktops in the kitchen were tacky with what felt like grease so we felt
that the rest of the place was not going to get any better and it did not let us down.
Our view from the balcony was demolition work being carried out on the side lane opposite.
To cut a long story short my visit to Base again will not be happening !

Just back from 2 nights at Hudson Garden Base Apartments. Cannot believe that they are advertised as luxury, home from home. Duvet and pillows were poor quality and on arrival our bed was partially made with a heavily stained mattress protector, which I am pretty sure sheets would have been placed over if I had not complained. The carpets were filthy and I was not happy with my children touching anything there. Next to a busy road and with building work to wake us up, it was not a good introduction to Liverpool on our first visit! I will not use the apartments again and tell friends to avoid. Exterior and landings also horrible and smelly.

Although central the apartments on St Thomas Street were noisy (only double glazing with central bus station outside).

Rooms were compfortable, newly decorated and very clean but security was a bit suspect as the front door didnt close fully unless you made certain of it and the entrance was a bit grotty.

Nevertheless for the price if you are a good sleeper then I would recommend it but not if youre a poor sleeper like me.

There are numerous apartments in several different buildings managed by Base.

We stayed in three different apartments:
1. Two bedroomed apartment on the second floor at the rear, in Duke Street. Reasonable sized two bedrooms. Good sized kitchen. Comfortable lounge with three sofas.
2. Three bedroom penthouse in Duke Street. Fabulous living space, ample bedrooms. High quality. Vast balcony. Great views over the rooftops. Views of landmarks such as the two cathedrals. Comfortable lounge with three sofas.
3. Three bedroom(ish) penthouse at Royal Quay. Spectacular view overlooking dockland area, Liver Buildings, Albert Dock etc. Great dining area with huge panoramic window. Comfy lounge area. A downstairs area that looks like a coffee bar. Great balcony. Reasonable sized two double bedrooms, one en-suite. Tiny cramped kitchen but functional. Small bathrooms but ok. Sofa beds in the upstairs lounge and also in the downstairs "coffee bar" area.

Well equipped kitchens. Comfortable furnishings. Good quality fittings and decor. Clean. Well maintained. Easy parking (paid approx. £7/day due to long stay).

Friendly helpful staff.

Especially good value for money during the week.
