“good value for money”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We stayed four nights whilst attending a course in Liverpool. The room was comfortable and clean. It was cleaned daily to a good standard. The location is excellent. We ate in the bar on three of the nights as it was very convenient to study, eat, and study again without having to go anywhere. The menu is not particularly extensive but there is enough on there to give a variety. The prices are very fair. My food was always of a decent standard. My partner is a vegan, and on one occasion asked for plain tomato pasta, no cheese etc. She was presented with pasta with cheese and even bacon! other than that, the food experience was more than acceptable. The drinks prices are fair too.
The hotel was very busy, and unfortunately we had our sleep disturbed on two nights, once by a group of wobbly drunken middle aged women who had been out on the town until around 3am and took a significant time to find their rooms, stop walking between each other rooms, shut up and close their doors! The next evening we had fans from an Eagles concert coming back after a few post gig drinks at around 1.30 and then another group a couple of hours later. Not great to be disturbed when you have a course to attend and exams on the last day! but I guess that is not to be unexpected in a budget hotel, and it isn't the fault of the hotel in any way, so it has not affected my rating, but it is something for people to bear in mind. The staff ranged from bright and bubbly, helpful and friendly (the vast majority), to unengaging and uninterested (the distinct minority) This is the third time we have stayed here, and the first since I started using tripadvisor so I'd just like to point out that it has improved significantly since our earlier visits about three years ago and they should be pleased with their improvement and progress.

This is a good, cheap and clean hotel with a view of the docks, the people are nice here and value for money and close (ish) to the centre of town. What more do you want ? Save some money and stay here, you could do worse

Quiet Location, nice patio area overlooking the river. About a 10 minutes walk to Albert Dock and 20 minutes to town. The rooms are adequate size, very clean, and have everything you would need. As mentioned on other reviews the bathrooms are small, but compact. If you are short you may have problems with the shower as it is attached to the ceiling and will be hard to reach to move direction. You will also have very clean hair especially if you shower twice a day, as if you are short your hair will get wet each time. Shower caps are provided. Would definitely stay here again. We didn't have breakfast so can't comment on this but they make a good baked potato!

Wonderful service, very friendly and a great location. Very friendly when working with such a large group of people, nothing seemed too much trouble or hassle. Great value for money also. Very accessible location, literally 15-20 minute walk from city centre location.

Well where to begin. Customer service for a start is excellent very friendly and helpful on all aspects. Very clean good location casino 30 seconds away which hosts shows ect just ten mins from all shops bars restaurants docks etc. Great views of river good selection of drinks only bad thing I can say about it is not a lot of options for breakfast. But all in all defiantly coming back.

No problem to find this hotel using sat nav or phone map, and easy access to car park from road. Triple room was double bed with a bunk above. TV worked well, and hair dryer and tea and coffee making facilities were supplied. Very small room, very small shower, but for the price, the location, the cleanliness, the excellent breakfast and the fabulous staff, this hotel deserves the 5 stars without hesitation

Room Tip: Our room looked over the car park and the main road. Traffic was heavy but noise wouldn't stop a...
