Stayed here for one night in a small double room on the top floor. The heating wasn't working at first, but the staff sorted it out very quickly. The noise from the water tank in the loft was quite disturbing first thing in the morning and at 1m 84 I struggled with the sloping roof in the bathroom. Great breakfast,... More

My partner and I stayed here this weekend, whilst we ventured to the Cavern for a gig. I can not fault the welcome we had on arrival, the gentleman at reception was great and even gave us a map of the city. We also took advantage of the free permit parking for the duration of the stay. We got to... More

Comfortable room, well fitted-out, but small, and bathroom even smaller. Friendly staff. Short walk to town centre, cathedral and restaurants. Pleasant sunny breakfast room. Very close to a good pub - the Farmers Union.

The Clock Tower is a nice, slightly older hotel. It is close to the train station and an easy walk to the town center and major sites. My room was large for a solo traveler and to the rear of the hotel so very quiet. I had the full English breakfast the 3 days I was there so I can... More

A one night stay at this basic but comfortable B&B in late September. Had the full English for breakfast, products used were of a medium quality but for £75 a night for the 2 of us thought it was good value for money. Parking was a problem as the Hotel has none of it's own but the will give you... More

I scored this hotel out of 100 and gave it 20. It's dated. Parking is non existent - one has to collect a permit and drive round local streets searching for a parking space in "zone h" where locals park. The room was dated and hardly big enough to swing a cat round in. Shower a trickle. TV tiny. Guy... More
