We chose the Premier Inn after staying at another of their hotels in London (the one featured on the current Premier Inn advert with Lenny Henry).
We arrived at 11am and although the room was not ready till 3 the hotel were happy to store our bags.
There is a short stay car park right outside the hotel and long stay nearby (the hotel have a discounted rate agreement so check at reception).
The Premier Inn is right opposite the new Liverpool arena so would be ideal if you were going to a concert. It only takes 10 mins to walk into the city centre and 1 min to get to the shops in the docks. Beatles Story is just next door and a Costa coffee.
The room itself was spotless - the bed actually 2 singles made up as a double so it was huge. The room itself (room 122) was right at the end of a number of turning corridors - so we had no one beyond us making any noise. It had 2 huge windows - one which looked out over the dock and another over a courtyard area. The room itself had a lovely arched ceiling. It also had a hairdryer in as standard. Bathroom has shower gel/soap provided.
One thing I did note was that there was no aircon in the room - not an issue in winter but whether it would be in summer I could not say. It may be that the thick stone of the building keeps it cool.
We didn't use the restaurant so can't comment on that but we have in other Premier Inns and found it to be good. There are lots of great restaurants in the Albert Dock - we went to Circo which is next door to the Premier Inn - fab food and cocktails and a dark victorian circus style theme to it. We also went on the fabfourtaxi tour (having previously done the Magical Mystery tour). The fab four is a really personal tour and gives you another great insight into the early years of the Beatles.
