“University Interview”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We chose The Dolby Hotel because we wanted a good value room for three, free parking all next day and near the college. This hotel was great. No frills, but we enjoyed an evening meal when we arrived at about 9:00pm, had a hearty breakfast next morning and could walk to the university and local attractions leaving the car there all day. The friendly staff were very helpful and always had a smile. Good Value!

The Dolby Hotel does what it says on the tin !! Before booking i was looking for a room for 3 ( one being my tall 15 yr old son) free parking W fi without charge and value for money breakfast included . I read all the reviews on Trip Advisor and could see overall this hotel had a good rating. Im really glad I took the chance, we stayed for one night mid week so we got a great rate and for an extra cost I booked a cooked breakfast for us all. For one night it was £57.50 in total for 3 of us. For this price you got a clean room the bunk over the double was long enough for a tall teen tea coffee tv and what I would call a 'pod' bathroom and a hearty breakfast. For a place to lay your head and be in relative comfort i don't think you can beat it. Also the welcome was genuine and great and the ambience was clean comfy and modern as you arrived. The cafe area overlooked the dock and had a wide screen TV showing sky sports in the evening if there was a match on which suited my boys! The Wifi was hit and miss but as it was free wasn't a great issue. The main bonus was the free parking - we needed to come and go to visit my daughter in her Uni digs but was only a 10 minute brisk walk to Liverpool One and Albert dock. Yes its not in the posher end of the docks but for what it offers I think its worth just the 10 minute distance for a cheaper deal.It would be a trot to Lime Street but the Taxis are reasonable in Liverpool according to my daughter whose used to paying far more In Cardiff. Im sure we'll use this as an option again when coming back and forth to Liverpool to visit.

Room Tip: I asked for a room overlooking the dock rather than the car park which we were given:)

Stayed here for 1 night. Booked as we were attending a concert at the Echo area.... location was great for this, literally a 5 minute walk. Nice location, overlooking the docks. Plenty of parking outside the hotel.

Room basic, ours had a double bed with a bunk bed above. Coffee maker, tv etc. Bathroom was small but for 1 night cannot complain. We had a peaceful nights sleep and didnt hear any noise.

We also used the hotel restaurant, food was lovely and very reasonably priced. We found the staff in the hotel to all be very friendly and helpful.

Would recommend.

Dolby was clean, comfortable and the staff very friendly. It was great value for money. It was not a luxury hotel so go expecting basic. They try to cater for everything that is essential. Shower very small though and it was difficult to shower. They also have quite a nice restaurant even though the menu again was basic.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view.
