Decided to do some shopping & sightseeing in Liverpool between Christmas and new year. After researching central hotels choose The Richmond after reading some excellent reviews. Booked a double room with booking.com with the option of an extra bed for our son. Arrived early but couldn't check in until 3pm, however we could leave our luggage with the concierge who quickly took our car to the security parking.
After returning from Albert Dock, approx a 10 min walk away, we were quickly checked in and given our key. However, upon entering the room we realised there was no extra bed. I went back down to reception and was told the double rooms were too small to have an extra bed and this option was a mistake on the booking.com website. Thankfully this was not a problem, the receptionist gave me the key to a junior suite at no extra cost!
Wow, this room was lovely. A fully equipped kitchen, complete with fridge freezer and dishwasher. A queen sized bed, with 50' TV, sitting area with another 50' TV and 2 sofas, one of which was made up into a bed for our son. The bathroom was beautiful with Molton Brown toiletries. The bed was so comfy and we all slept really well.
The whole hotel is gorgeous, spotlessly clean and staff very helpful and pleasant. Conveniently located for Liverpool One, the museums and Albert Dock.
My only 2 niggles about the room is lack of a dressing table mirror in the bedroom and could have done with a clock on the bedside table but really not a problem.
If considering a trip to Liverpool, do not hesitate to book The Richmond, a real gem!
