We stayed at 30 James Street for one night on 25/8. Our room was the A Night to Remember Quarters and it was absolutely lovely. Our two children stayed with us and there was plenty of room for all of us with two double beds and two large sofa beds. The decor is light and airy, the finish luxurious. The children were seriously impressed by the fact that they could play cut the rope and candy crush saga via the large smart TV too. The bathroom is beautiful with a large jacuzzi spa bath with a waterfall shower over. There was also a lovely dining area and a fully equipped kitchen which really impressed me as there was even a dishwasher! We all slept very well in very comfy beds (my son slept on the sofa bed and it was hard to wake him in the morning). We all had two pillows each, but for those needing more we found some more in the wardrobe, Although the hotel is directly on the main road we weren't bothered by traffic noise and that's coming from a family that live in a quiet country location! 30 James Street is in an excellent location for all the sights of Liverpool, being only 5 minutes walk from Liverpool 1 shops and the Albert Dock. We ate out as we had already arranged a table at a favourite restaurant of ours, but if you don't want to go far you can always eat in the Carpathia restaurant located on the 7th floor which has stunning balcony views over the city. In the morning we had breakfast in the Carpathia, which continues the Titanic theme and is well organised and decorated. Pictures around the restaurant kept the kids interested with information on significant people linked to the White Star Co or the cruise liner itself. Breakfast was really lovely with a choice of cereals, fresh fruit including melon, strawberries and oranges, a selection of fresh fruit juice, tea and coffee as well as scrambled egg, sausage, bacon, beans, fresh tomatoes and toast. A selection of preserves are available too and I was again impressed by the fact that there was marmite which I love on my toast in a morning. I don't often see that in hotels we've stayed in. (Sometimes it's the little things that are the best)! It definitely set us all up for the day. The staff we spoke to during our stay were really helpful and polite and nothing seemed too much trouble. My only regret is that we couldn't stay for longer but it just means that we will have to come back, and I really hope it'll be sooner rather than later. I would definitely recommend it to family and friends, it really is a lovely hotel.
