We stayed here for the Royal College of Nursing Congress in Liverpool. From the outside it looks fabulous and the main areas are really stunning with huge chandeliers and lots of vases of fresh flowers which is always nice!
Check-in was smooth and our room was on the second floor, accessible by stairs or lift.
The room itself was rather tired and desperately in need of some TLC! The carpet was dirty with old sweets stuck to it and lots of dust in the corners and the big, squashy sofa, while comfortable and a nice touch, was covered in make-up stains which easily came off with a wet cloth so it says something about the cleaning (or lack of!) of the rooms! However, I really liked the room! Very Victorian with high ceilings, coving, panelling etc and the beds were very comfortable.
The bathroom was another matter however! Very, very dirty with a loose toilet seat which moved when it was sat on, cracked wash basin, limescale and rust everywhere....a bit of a disgrace really! Very mucky floor and I scalded my hands a couple of times as the hot water tap gives boiling hot water instantly!
The pub/bar area looked nice but when we went in for a drink we were overwhelmed by cigarette smoke so obviously smoking is allowed in this bar which is problematic as my colleague is asthmatic and smoking can trigger an attack. We didn't bother with a drink as a result.
To be fair, we only paid £60 for the night which is good for a city centre hotel and it was local to lots of places and 5 minutes from Liverpool Lime Street station. If the rooms in dire need could be updated and cleaned properly the Adelphi could be restored to its former glory....the potential is definitely there!
