City B&B

Reviewed 7 October 2013

Really rude. Constantly hung up by phone and stated 'we are closed'
Booked our driver in for the night for a shower and bed. Did not expect much!
He arrived 30 minutes late and they tried to charge £10 more and literately shut the door in his face. He had been travelling since 5am and he arrived at 8.30pm. People like this should not be in business and really do let the UK b&b industry down. I would not recommend and feel very let down by these people and anyone who promotes their services!!

Stayed: October 2013, travelled on business

Firstly, you have to check in at a different place!
None of the taxi drivers know where this place is... which says it all!
Yes we didn't pay much to stay there for two nights, but it's not an exception to be spoken to the way me and my friend were by the woman at the o'tooles guest house.
It seemed like nothing got cleaned or changed and there's a horrible musty smell in the place.
Its around £6/7 in a taxi... so if you're staying in liverpool for a couple of nights,
you might aswell pay for a nicer hotel nearer the center.

Accomodation basic but cheap if you just need a bed for the night. For some stupid reason you have to book in at the o tools guest house down the road where your greeted by a rude lady who was just horrible. Would definitely go back to Liverpool but not back to city B and B as it was in the middle of industrial estate but getting a cab form their into town wasn't expensive.

Me and my friends were looking for somewhere cheap to stay for a night out in liverpool. This hotel came up as by far the cheapest and it enabled us all to stay for 10pound each which was ideal!

Our stay began with having being given the wrong postcode on all the information and then after finding the hotel we turned up in an industrial estate with only a petrol station nearby. We then took the walk down to the local wine bar where we had to check in. I have to say that the check in procedure was standard and the information we received was ok but nothing great.

When walking into the hotel we were greeted by some quite dodgy looking european guests and were initially very nervous. We tentatively opened the door to our rooms and was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and simplicity of the room. The room was quite nice for the money and the bathrooms were clean enough so we were at ease and gave it a chance.

The main problems came when we came to sleep. The beds were quite uncomfortable and lumpy but this was expected for the money. The main issue was the incredibly noisy water system. Whenever anyone in any of the toilets used the tap shower or toilet, a very noisy rattling and humming ran through the rooms which woke me up several times during the night.

Overall, i would say that this hotel is great for anyone who really is strapped for cash and is just looking for a place to rest their head for the night. If you can stump up a little more for a travelodge....Do it! I do not regret staying here because it enabled us all to visit liverpool for the money but next time i will not be returning and paying a little more for a travelodge!

i say ok for price but would never return, not because of the room because of the very rude woman who checked us in. The room was clean but basic,the area is not very nice but when we stayed it was very quiet ,we walked to centre it took around 20 minutes .there is a great cafe underneath the people who run it are very friendly and helpful.

I'd stay here again but for no more than £20.

This luxury accommodation was a stone’s throw away from the city centre and in a lovely part of town. The checking in system was simple and convenient and the staff were so friendly! We were greeted with such a lovely welcome and they didn’t mind going the extra mile to make our stay more pleasurable. The rooms were comfortable with all mod cons included and to our delight; spotlessly clean. Décor was modern and nicely designed and we didn’t want to leave. A wonderful experience which made our stay in Liverpool a truly enjoyable time for all involved. The only negative feedback I could give would be that at breakfast the tomato ketchup wasn’t Heinz. I think it was Daddies, and my eggs were slightly over cooked. But to be fair I am incredibly fussy!
