Went to Liverpool to board HMS Illustrious. My daughters boyfriend is on there. It was an amazing weekend. The Days Inn was amazing too. Don't let the small reception put you off. The rooms are lovely, extremely clean and well furnished. The shower is great, really wakes you up in the morning. The only down side was the continuous noise coming from the bathroom, sounded like running water, but we didn't let it spoil our stay. It is centrally based for both the dock area and Liverpool One. Discount tickets given for the carpark, deeming it half price. Lovely hotel. Would definitely go there again .
