After reading the bad reviews i was set up for dissapointment anyway. Myself & 2 friends travelled to Liverpool Friday 22nd August, i had contacted the hotel to let them know we would be arriving later than check in time, and will be there for 10:30pm, happy to pay the charge of £10. Unfortunately, we were stuck in standstill traffic... More

st of all the check in is at a different place and just open 2pm, so you can't leave your bag before this time. The receptionist is rude and sarcastic. That is no staff in the accomodation, no reception and no kitchen and the tv in the bedroom doesn't work. The place is far from the city, there is no... More

If you plan a long term stay then this place isn't for you. If its a one night stay then its perfect for that except the location is a little off putting. Looks can be deceiving from the outside but the bedrooms/shower rooms was very clean and tidy, so no complaints here. It's creepy here and feels like this part... More

These are my views based on staying at City B & B, bearing in mind there were 5 of us although only 4 went and we paid £46 for a 2 and 3 bed room, that's right £9.20 each. The rooms we had were perfectly clean and the heating was on (it was hot), the bedding was clean and I... More

I would not recommend this b&b to anyone! The check in is at a different hotel/ wine bar. This was a good 5 minute walk. The area does not feel like the safest to be walking around in darkness alone so not ideal. The receptionist was miserable and very unwelcoming. If you would like towels then you have to pay... More

Its firstly awkward to have to check in at a different building, with a rude lady who almost charged us £50 for not having a valid ID! Then with no lifts in the building we had to climb a lot of stairs with a heavy luggage! The shared bathroom was not cleaned once during our 3 night stay. The room... More

Really rude. Constantly hung up by phone and stated 'we are closed' Booked our driver in for the night for a shower and bed. Did not expect much! He arrived 30 minutes late and they tried to charge £10 more and literately shut the door in his face. He had been travelling since 5am and he arrived at 8.30pm. People... More

Firstly, you have to check in at a different place! None of the taxi drivers know where this place is... which says it all! Yes we didn't pay much to stay there for two nights, but it's not an exception to be spoken to the way me and my friend were by the woman at the o'tooles guest house. It... More
