Reviewed 8 January 2018

Our stay for five people in two rooms was good overall; comfy beds, clean rooms, working TV &c but there were some glitches.
The pool was not working on the day we arrived, which was a shame as we had three children. We were offered free breakfast as compensation although we had to remind the staff of that the next morning.
The breakfast room ran out of plates and water
The plug in the bath need to be manually removed each time using fingernails as the lever did not work.
The cover of the airvent in the loo had only two out of four pins needed to hold it in place
Room cards had to be repeatedly updates to gain access
A locker in the gym changing room seized up and it took 20-30 minutes and three visits by staff to lever it open while the user had to wait in their towel.
This feedback is sent not as criticism or complaint but to help you iron out of the glitches

Stayed over n,year
Very central hotel
Great for getting around.
It's very chaotic in restaurant,and in lounge bar area,
Not near enough staff to cope with large number guests,
Restaurant poor menu
Staff ok,but not in the least bit friendly.
Room clean tidy,made up daily but not till well on in the day.
Over all it was an ok stay,as we were busy doing tourist things and not in hotel that much,
Plenty hotels in Liverpool to choose from,so would stay else where on our next visit.

Lovely hotel in a good location, within walking distance of attractions. Housekeeping however left a lot to be desired. On arrival there was a sweet paper on floor and the safe was locked. The next day the room was not serviced at all. Following day the bed was made but overflowing bins had not been emptied and tea/coffee had not been replenished.

I stayed here for two nights on a business trip, and altogether I thought that the place was efficient, friendly and very good value.

I was upgraded to an executive room (I'm a Platinum Accor member), which was very spacious and comfortable. Check-in was very efficient and check-out similarly so, with no problem in leaving luggage until I could collect it later in the day.

There were all the amenities one would expect in the bathroom ... and more. And generally the products were of a good quality. There were also two bottles of water in the fridge, which were very welcome and a touch that I much appreciate.

Downstairs in the restaurant, the food in the evenings was very average but the prices were good. My server one one night, Diana, deserves a particular 'shout out' for her delightful, friendly demeanour and her helpful and efficient service. Thank you. People have complained about queues at breakfast but there were none during my stay but perhaps that's because the first week of January is fairly much 'low season' in Liverpool! And the breakfast was good.

It would have been nice to have some electrical sockets near the bed, and the desk was a rather complicated affair, which had too little room on it. The lighting in the room was also rather on the dim side.

However, all in all, this place has a great location and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
