As a relatively frequent visitor to Liverpool, I would heartily recommend The Liner. It is well located, near Lime St Stn, and within minutes you can be in the city centre, Liverpool One, the docks, or the universities. There is parking - sometimes I wonder if there will be space for me in the busy (partly public) car park, but somehow there is always a spot left!
The rooms are the expected size for an urban hotel. They are very clean, with all that one expects - comfortable bed, tea and coffee, very pleasant bathroom. The views can be a bit hit and miss, but I have discovered a previously undiscovered fondness for seagulls. Having spent more time than is logical watching them from my room at The Liner, I have come to appreciate they are far more intelligent and entertaining than pigeons, canaries, etc etc.
The public areas are very good, clean and oddly uplifting. There is a huge aquarium shared between the lobby and the restaurant, a large breakfast room, a bar and whatnot. The overall impression is the right sort of cheerfulness - not so much that you want to scream, but just enough to make a good start to the day.
Breakfast could be a little better, but it is plentiful and very busy. The conference room always seems busy for local breakfast meetings, which seems like a good sign. The restaurant food is good - not haute cuisine but priced appropriately.
The staff are very pleasant, helpful, and seems quite hard-working. Nothing is too much trouble, whether it is more coffee at midnight, a fan for a wilting guest, or helping with bags.
Nice to see a good independent hotel.
