The marbled elegance and old time styling. I worked there 47 years ago We did not like leaving
very loud noise outside from pub/saloon till midnight
Perfect room. Very good location.
The staff were extremly helpful and friendly. Only stayed one night, breakfast excellent and parking availability excellent
we like to go away as many weekends as poss, but not @ £114 per night, which is what we paid. the last time we stayed there early this year we paid £59
Convenience of location. Pizzeria was not of the high quality I would have expected. I also think that breakfast of some sort should nhave been included in the price. The number of smokers hanging around the front entrance sets a very low standard for the hotel.
Good location The hotel building and some of the decor would surely have been very impressive in its heyday, but is now very shabby and in desperate need of renovation and cleaning! Breakfast was poor.
Ended up goin home early hours in morning as bed was vile had dirty sheets looked like the beds hadnt been changed would never stay their again
Access to the city centre
Breakfast was poor and poor value for money cattle market
friendly people, obliging and it was very comfortable.
over all the experience was top notch Didn't like the wait at breakfast, my wife and others waited nearly 15 minuets for bacon at the hot plate and I ordered a plain omelette and waited nearly 15 minuets, that put a dampener on the departing, at the time it really wasn't busy.
Comfortable bed, good facilities and very friendly staff The room would be greatly improved by the addition of an easy chair and a toothbrush holder or glass in the bathroom. Only 2 teabags left which seems pretty mean spirited, I'm sure you can afford more.
It was very close to everything! The bus station, the nightlife, restaurants and the shops were all within 5 minutes walking time or less! :) We couldnt open our window and the room just felt a teeney bit claustrophobic because of it!
Excellent location, staff were friendly, rooms were very modern, clean and provided all necessary amenties. Shower was excellent.
Huge bed , high ceilings , overall good sized clean and comfortable Very pleasant and helpful staff It says car parking , which is misleading , there's a multi storey just down the road
loved everthing bout the hotel 1 of the best city centre hotels ive stayed cool trendy very central good local discounted carparking and very friendly staff will definatly be back! nuthin it was top notch!
Perfect! I haven't a bad word to say about base2stay.
I absolutely loved this hotel! I slept in for my flight and a member of staff came n woke me up! helped me to pack my stuff! seriously beautiful hotel! Around the corner from d main party square and two minutes away from the main shopping area! go here! the staff are amazing!
This is a very new hotel voted 1 on Trip Advisor. I visit Liverpool often and have stayed in many hotels. The room was very clean, high-tec design was ok - good to be close to s many places of interest. Good bathroom. Awful air-con, cold air blowing directly onto the bed all night was very poor - very little sleep! Staff unable to fix? Alternative room offered seemed to have a similar problem - no upgrade suggested/offered to compensate. Single room was the size of a large cupboard, bathroom almost as big.........? I hope the double rooms are bigger?
I stayed a week at this hotel,and would definitely stay again when I return to Liverpool.
We could not use any water facilities until 4pm on Saturday 27/11/2010.
Frankly I liked everything.
breakfast ansd staff were great
Check in was effortless. Rooms were are of a very good standard and clean. The extra bed was very uncomfortable.
very helpfull & very friendly staff.Top quality hotel without stuck up staff! Rooms excellant huge comfy bed, clean,well stocked mini bar,great sized rooms.lovely pool. can't wait to return!! Food prices a little too expensive so didn't eat at hotel.
Girl at the gym reception extremely friendly and helpful !! Stroppy receptionist at the main reception trying to over charge us. When asked whether breakfast was included or not, said: "you are expecting too much for that price!!". Car park wasn't included either and it was rather expensive.
Room had everything you could wish for, very well planned and thought out. Had a water cut off mid morning which was a little inconvenient as I was mid showering when it went off.
The room was nice and modern and the lobby was big with outdoor seats staff were friendly. The location is quiet at night. We had requested an room with a view of the Mersey which we didnt get. The dining room carpet was very dirty and the hotel is a little far away from the city centre.
Staff were excellent and always attentive. Fantastic room with a glorious bathroom. Delicious breakfast and a great bar area in the lobby. Limited functionality from the Spa (one of the big factors in our choosing the hotel), inactive Wifi connection during the morning of check-out, and loud screech when the A/C was on full power.
A bit too far out from shops etc
An excellent room, the bed was very comfortable, very clean, there were excellent facilities the sauna & gym were great. We were offered breadfast for £10 each on check in but did not book as we were unsure what time we were meeting friends the next day on the following morning the offer was withdrawn this was the only fault we found with this hotel.
Excellent service but slow check in due to queue and only two staff at the desk - I was in a rush to get to a conference dinner and as delayed because of this. As above
Comfortable, secure, great location for shopping Expensive restaurant...Hotel booking made on the Internet back in July and although we weren't staying until late November the money was debited in July.
Breakfast and service, piped sound into bathroom, tea and coffee in room, large comfortable room, desk and MP3 music player lead Not much -- all was pretty good
The city center location was spot on. The friendly staff. The room was very clean and welcoming. The bar facilities were excellent. In my view an all round perfect hotel.
Its excellent location to most places within Liverpool. No free Wifi on site.
The Hotel is right at the centre of Liverpool, I felt the hotel description could elaborate more on this. Minutes away from the young and lively night life of Bold street, in the other direction only minutes from Church street with its outside craft/food stalls and a great selection of shops to whet your appetite on the way to Liverpool one. Hotel staff are excellent, very friendly however, they speak extremely fast and it was difficult to understand. They were very patient when I kept saying, I'm sorry I don't understand what you are saying. The bar is modern, fresh and inviting. The carpet outside the lift on the 8th floor where our room was loacted was very dirty.
Conveniently located for theatre break. Clean, well equiped, compact modern hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Excellent shower. Good selection at breakfast although sausages/bacon looked a bit undercooked. Although the shower was excellent the wc is separate from the ensuite and doesnt have a washhand basin and is less convenient than a traditional en-suite. Expensive bar prices.
Clean, modern, good leisure facilities, friendly staff, top quality breakfast. Lots of 'city' noise during the night, no bath (executive room), bit if a battle to get the internet switched on (we had paid for it in our rate), pretty expensive.
Good service and pleasant staff. Room great and enjoyed using the gym. Very close to many good restaurants. None really
Excellent attentive and pleasant staff Food prices very high in bar, excessive.
Friendly courteous staff, excellent location 10 min walk to Liverpool One shopping centre. Large room with computer desk/chair, comfy bed, excellent breakfast and enjoyed the evening meal in the restaurant - excellent value. Parking only £9 over stay. Bathroom & bath was a little small
The staff in this hotel are absolutely supurb None
Excellant staff, from doorman through to room service and restaurant staff - well done all. (1) Not really a bad point just one of slight irritation, and it happens in a number of hotels, staff in restaurants continually asking "is everything alright". I suppose its just getting the balance right. (2) Again not a big point, but checking and ensuring things like mini bar doors and wardrobe doors don't bind, etc but are set-up correctly are proper touches for a hotel like the plaza.
Location and parking facility Not enough staff in dining room on the Sunday morning which was very busy due to a wedding on the Saturday
Good location with friendly staff. A little "spa" was a good extra for daddy and son. Nice room. Only one thing, dinner pasta was actually awful, although the starter soup was excellent.
Good parking very good breakfast
the staff was efficient ,we were able to check in as soon as we arrived which was great. finding a toe nail on our bedroom carpet as we entered the room 345
From the cleaner to the manager, everyone was extremely helpful There were no bad points
The reception staff were very friendly. The design of the hotel is stunning. The breakfast menu was unbelievable, such a fantastic variety to choose from.
It was close to everything the city has to offer.
Love not having a window no street noise which was better than I thought Air conditioner constantly was running through it system. Made it hard to sleep
it is central I have been in the hotel for the second time.... but this time the hotel was much smaller than the first time... Infact it was suffocating in the room
Free cheese at 5:00
Great location. Close to Cavern area and Mooresfield underground station. Rooms are extremely small -- smaller than a cruise ship's smallest cabin.
Great staff... location great and rooms clean. No real storage space in rooms.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Location! The hotel is a short walk from Matthew Street and Liverpool One. Hotel is in the Hart of City Centre. The staff is extremely friendly. Will stay again. If there is one thing I didn't like is the lack of stairs or an extra elevator. Nothing too bad, but can slow you down if you are in a hurry.
It was central to where we wanted to be in Liverpool Room was small and compact, toilet/shower cubicle within the main area.
The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean and fit for short stay
proximity to city centre Tip to have privacy in en suite. Buy a newspaper and sellotape. Attach newspaper to the outside of glass and then shower in private
Cleanliness, excellent customer service, peaceful and comfortable stay. Overall a great experience Nothing. Everything was perfect.
Location was great and the breakfast was really nice. The food in the restaurant was also very good. The air conditioning was a bit weak. It was cold when we were in Liverpool and it took about an hour for the airco to warm the room up.
The location and the use of the executive lounge Paying extra for internet in an executive room
Central with good adjacent facilities Room poorly cleaned
Rooms ready when we arrived. Reception and bar staff very helpful.
room and location were excellent Staff in the bar were poor. very slow and not attentive. Left to go to a bar outside the hotel as a result.
Venue, food, atmosphere is electric
Great location, new modern business hotel Management need to take responsibility for training staff properly. This needs to come from the top and filter down. Tea and coffee being slammed onto the breakfast table is not acceptable nor is a poorly trained bartender who knows nothing about the area he is working on. With a few adjustments things could run much slicker.
It was brand new and very well situated for shopping and nightlife in the City I think it is a misguided strategy to charge for bottled water in the room-this seems a small point but it is the only hotel I have been to that does not provide it free of charge.
Thought the hotel was fantastic - great view, lovely room, great bar, great breakfast and good ambience. No radio or music in room v disappointing. The staff member on duty when we checked out wouldn't believe us when we said we had only had two drinks other peoples drinks had managed to get onto our bill. We were left waiting for a long time while she tried to sort this out and then we received no apology when she realised she was in the wrong!!!! Very poor customer service.
nice location friendly staff one thing i didnt know adout the room before hand ,it had a door linking up to another room this meant you could hear people talking quiet clearly in the early morning when we stay again we will look for a room that dont have this link up door otherwise we could have no fault with the hotel it was excellent will stay again
The public spaces downstairs - bar lounge etc - air of activity and comfort The room while very well furnished and serviced was on the small side for an hotel of this tarriff
The beatles theme throughout the hotel is fascinating a must see for any beatles fan. The hotel staff are very helpful and even tried to get us tickets for the comedy club. There was a strange noise almost like a tube train that was very annoying. I did complain and was given a £20 discount. They thought it was the air conditioning.
The overall layout of the hotel ,the decor and design quiet unique Price rather expensive considering it did not include breakfast
the staff were extremely freindly and hepfull no
I liked the rooms the location and help from the concierge. The breakfast was extremely disorganised, overcrowded with no cutlery set out. It was a buffet but you had to ask for everything!
Everything - great staff and excellent atmosphere
Tastefully themed and in the heart of the city.
The central lokation, the design and the comfort.
Location was very close to Cavern Club. Check in was confusing, person at the counter acted as if it was her first hour on the job. Went to lounge for a drink, was hoping to hear beatles music... after all, we were staying at the Hard Days Night Hotel. They were playing beatles music, but it was so soft we could barely hear it (and not because there were so many people talking, there were only 4 people in the lounge). I asked them to turn it up, which they did ever so slightly. Still only soft background music. We were not looking for loud, just something we could hear without straining. Had yet another bad experience with concierge (Kevin). We had purchased tickets to the Cavern Club Beatles tribute band show through the hotel. Asked Kevin when we should plan to arrive for the 8 PM show to be sure we got seats (explaining that I had read on line that seating was limited and you had to arrive early to get seats even if you had purchased tickets). Kevin dismissed my concern, saying we just had to be there at 8 and handed us the tickets. When we got to the room I read the tickets, they also said that seating was limited and that a ticket didn't guarantee a seat. Decided to ignore Kevin's guidance and it was a good thing we did. We arrived at 7, people were already lined up. By the time the doors opened (7:45) the place was full of people lined up to get in. We got a seat, but had we listened to Kevin we would have been standing for the entire show, which ended just after midnight.
The food at Blakes restaurant was amazing and all staff were very helpful throughout the hotel. The decor is luxurious and rooms are spacious.
Location good TV programming. Including Sky sports Bathrooms very dark. Bad lighting. Breakfast selection ok at best
excellent hotel took my partner for his birthday handy for the shops freindly staff would stay again and tell all my freinds on the isle of man where i live nothing
the rooms were very clean no
we thought the hotel was great and staff really helpful and pleasant and would definatley stay again. and recommend to others,
central location, easy parking.
The bar and restaurant areas were lovely and the service was excellent.
All the staff were very helpful and welcoming No food (even sandwiches) available after 10.00pm. At the bar, plenty of alcohol available, but the coffee/hot chocolate machine was switched off at 10.00pm. No choice of teas in the room.
we went to a concert at the echo arena and this hotel could not have been more covienient the pillows weren't very compfortable
Location, clean Lack of character
i had a very enjoyable stay here great location great service and great value
The room was very basic, and for some reason although there was only two of us, they had made another camp bed type thing up, which took up a lot of room, leaving very limited space to move around the room when getting ready for our evening out!
New hotel, ideal location (near the dock etc), nice and comfy rooms There were some teething problems with a new hotel. The fire alarms went off in the middle of the night twice on our 1st night. On 2nd night, no hot water. it was disappointing that the staff in the hotel wasn't able to tell us how long it would take to fix the problem.
Nice Room Parking is a nightmare
the room was lovely, over looking the water. the young girl on reception was very helpful when we asked her where the place to go at night was.
Location/breakfast The bed mattress was old - need to change
Great location, clean with very friendly staff. Would stay again
location, friendly staff, comfortable bed, clean room, very good food, checkout efficient, 1st evening restaurant staff went out of their way to accommodate a late arrival hairdryer was broken, breakfast 1st morning was chaotic and prolonged, they'd run out of several key elements including plates, for which one had to wait, late delivery newspaper 1st morning, but overall an excellent experience
Location Rooms had a terrible smell to them.
This hotel needs some money spent on it. The food was ok. There was private function, so there was only one bar open, with no atmosphere, but three tv's! It certainly isn't 4 stars.
This hotel is definitely not 4 star. Very disappointed at value for money I had problems checking in and checking out as the prepaid cost with Bookings.com had not been updated on their system. Tried to charge me again. Not impressed with hotel, won't be staying there again. Not a 4 star hotel. Bar was awful
Hotel rooms were very small, toilet cramped, and bed was made for dwarfs!
An very good two day, first stay, we will stay again when in Liverpool. None
Very well kept hotel, and staff were generally nice. On check in they wanted to take credit card and take money from it, I usually pay on check out and we wanted to pay cash as we have no credit card. The manager was unwilling to help us at all and wouldnt take deposit or anything and insisted we get credeit card from somewhere or we couldnt stay! I thought was outrageous and prejudice against people who dont have credit cards we had used a prepay to book hotel. In the end we had to get our friends credit details just to secure the room and then pay on check out. I found this very inconvienent and embarrassing to be treated like that!!
The hotel offered a good allround service and was excelent for our stay. I coundnt fault the hotel
Its new and modern We asked for a wake up call - didnt get it. We also asked previous evening to book taxi for 4.45am as we had an early flight. We ended up having to get the night porter to ring a taxi at 5.00am. for us.
Comfortable bed and the pub next door! (The Baltic Fleet) Room was on topfloor and close to lift shaft - too noisy. Also, inadequate breakfast facilities...side plates in lieu of dinner plates and not sufficient space to accommodate the number of guests - you end up eating breakfast practically in the reception area.
Very nice room. Small but nice Every room also has a sofa bed so will be good for families Neat crisp bathroom Very business like but also suitable for families Nice small basic gym Convenient walk to the waterfront (max 7-10 mins) Car park charges £12 per night. Any extension beyond checkout costs £5 Breakfast is basic yet sufficient . Don't expect a Hilton type buffet No fridge in rooms
Good location. Excellant value for money. Didn't like using the entry key in the lift. It didn't always stop at the correct floor
lovely hotel no faults with rooms or staff , plesent and helpful,, lifts where bit crazy , could end up on any floor after pressing for the floor you had asked for,front door couldnt get out with a pushchair tight squeeze, only for having my partner with me wouldnt of got out at al as you need someone to carry on pushing the door around,
Modern. Friendly staff. Bit far away from "civilisation", not the nicest of walks to the hotel.
central location close to the shops and the albert docks with very helpful staff.very modern bedrooms and bathrooms . very busy breakfast area
Staff very helpful. The parking facility was secure but at the moment a bit awkward to drive in and out of because of ongoing building alterations.
The room was clean, comfortable, well furnished and the bathroom was a good size and well lit. I would have liked to have checked in earlier and checked out later but this was not possible apparently due to the high occupancy of the hotel.
All staff who we were in contact with were extremely polite and very friendly. Location of the hotel was fantastic.
beautiful well presented hotel with charming and welcoming staff there was nothing to dislike
The location was perfect for Lime Street Station and the city centre, and the staff were always friendly and helpful.
Location of the hotel and the excellent breakfast. Staff were also very helpful
Staff were very helpful and friendly; problem sorted very promptly, even by repairman who had come to the wrong room! No shampoo/conditioner
Once out of Lime Street train station, I saw the hotel at the opposite side. That was really handy after 3 hours journey from London. Facilities are very clean, we enjoyed the leisure center. The breakfast was just perfect, no more comment needed! And the staff, I miss words to describe how friendly they were from the reception to the breakfast service up to the check out time. Thanks! With a mini-bar in the rooms, I think this hotel would deserve 5 stars status. Unfortunatelly there wasn't!
The best point of the hotel was it was very central The breakfast was not great and having to stand and make your own toast
Restaurant/breakfast staff were exceptionally courteous, cheerful and industrious. Reception staff were cold and indifferent. Cancelled morning call for second morning but still happened. Woken at 6-15 Sunday which was avoidable if they had cancelled it as requested. When told about this the girl apologised in an indifferent way. Put us off returning.
Good Hotel Close to Railway Station None
Beautiful entrance/lobby and large luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms. Delightful helpful efficient staff
The Staff were very helpfull, and very attentive.
The room was very comfortable, and very pleasant to stay in. An excellent experience, restaurant and bar relaxing and staff very helpful. I do believe there should be complimentary bottle of water in the rooms, like other hotels in the area.
Sevice by the staff was superb
Breakfast and design of the reception area Making coffee in the room - the most ridiculous coffee sachets ever
bedrooms were excellent shower and toilet seat reported as broken but not fixed, outside under construction
The breakfast was excellent
I stay fairly often so enjoy the fact that some staff recognise that sometimes with a nice little touch I only marked down as fair for comfort on the basis that the exterior refurbishment works is somewhat distracting
The outstanding technology and gadgets built in rooms!
The staff were amazing and could not do enough to make our stay an enjoyable one. The decor was great, the room and the bed were so comfortable, and it was near to the main City's shops and attractions.
Room was very comfortable and whole atmosphere of hotel very relaxed which is good when travelling alone for business. Small gym is very well equipped and food excellent. Complimentary mini-bar much appreciated. Nice also to get a decent hairdryer and excellent wi-fi connections.
Good clean room Air Conditioning Entertainment Center WiFi slow and problems connecting
Beds were very comfortable Focus on restaurant while in the bar area
Friendly helpfull staff Not applicable.
Really could do with replacing the mattresses.Otherwise a fabulous hotel
The rooms was clean. Excellent location, efficient staff, good breakfast and we got it at a good price.
The noise from the railway station was loud and distracting
Comfortable Clean Football weekend, loud at times during the night - not too bad and my son wasn't woken!
Everything excellent..AS ALWAYS Un-faultable
Proximity to the station but that also means a pretty depressing outlook if you are on that side of the hotel and also of course, noise. Comfortable bed. Flickering light in bathroom. Room very hot.
I loved the way the hotel was finished from the reception to the rooms. Nothing was shabby and was very tastefully decorated. The staff were so friendly and helpful, breakfast well exceeded my expectations, was fabulous, and even the dining room for breakfast was a superb room. My friend and I decided to have a meal in the hotel restaurant and the menu had a lot of choice on it and both of us loved the meal. I have never stayed here before and would highly recommend staying here to anyone. It's close to the train, city centre and ferry services and is a palace for a 3 star hotel. The red carpet is great for posing on!!! Nothing!! Well maybe no swimming pool!! Ha ha!! No nothing to change. Everything great, parking a fantastic bonus!
Great location, the rooms were fab and bed was very comfy. I expected it to be quite noisy but there was not much noise from the railway at all. Breakfast was great. An overall very pleasant stay and great value for money.
