“2 Very Enjoyable Nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

My wife booked us in here as my birthday present, no doubt after carrying out her usual in depth research, and what a great choice she made.
The location is great as it is very close to James St Station and only a 10 minute walk from Lime St Station. L1 and the other main shopping streets are nearby, as are Albert Dock and Matthew Street. If you don't mind a bit of a longer walk, it's not that far to walk to the Cathedrals and most of the other sites as Liverpool centre is relatively compact.
The hotel is very welcoming with very nice public areas and helpful staff. Our room was spotless and very roomy with a split level area with a comfortable sofa. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in.
We had an excellent stay in Liverpool thanks to our hotel and the friendliness of the city as a whole.

I am thrilled to hear you and your partner has a wonderful stay in our hotel in such a wonderful city as Liverpool.

I'm glad you both received a warm reception & I hope you choose us again, the next time you decide to visit.

Perhaps, join us for our excellent breakfast in our onsite Restaurant & Bar - we hear the sausages are amazing!

We only had a one night stay, wished it was longer. Central position close to L1 shops, restaurants and James Street train station. Lovely good sized room with a huge, very comfortable bed, quality bedding and furnishings, we had everything we needed and the staff were efficient and helpful.
Would definetly stay again, excellent value for money.

Excellent location near shops and restaurants (and The Cavern). However our room (204) overlooked Derby Square which is very noisy from very early and the room was draughty. On arrival the room was very cold as a large mirror had been placed to toally block the only radiator in the room ! The desk phone did not work and the TV had no reception. When we reported these things, a fan heater was brought, we were told to use the bedside phone and the TV was restored.The bathroom was awful - the light over the mirror to shave was set so that one side of my face was in darkness, there was mould in the cheap plastic shower tray, the toilet seat did not fit - it was cheap plastic, the shower was cramped and with a poor flow of water,amenities were not renewed, the tissue box was empty and the towels were thin. There were no dressing gowns. In common with the rest of the hotel, our room and bathroom had been modernised on the cheap. There was peeling paint much in evidence and many lights had been replaced with inappropriate bulbs.Breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Do not choose room 204. Ask for a quiet room (if there is one!) and check the standard of housekeepi...

My wife and I had our Christmas treat at 62 Castle Street this weekend. We have been here a few times before and I have to say that this time, I did some research, came prepared and we had a fantastic night.

After speaking to reception a few weeks ago, we asked for the insider view of which was the best room available and 306 was suggested. This room is on the corner of the building and has a split level with the bed on one level and a seating area below.

The room was wonderfully warm on arrival on a cold day in Liverpool and the bed was to die for from a comfort perspective.

This was the perfect room and I would advise getting some advice from the hotel prior to arriving to make sure you get a good room as we have been given rooms that were not suitable in the past.

I only have 2 gripes though. The first is that you do get street noise early in the morning as bottles are emptied from the bar and secondly, the bar itself just inst very good and we struggled to get 2 glasses of Baileys!!! The music in the bar early on was also too loud and I am not a fan of loud music in scarcely occupied areas!!!

The hotel itself though, 10/10, well done 62 Castle Street and see you again very soon!!

Room Tip: We had room 306 which was lovely but book your hotel and then speak to them to reserve a room of you...

62 Castle Street has been reinstated as my favourite play to stay in Liverpool. We had a lovely master suite room and the bed was sooooo comfy.
The whole hotel was toasty warm as well, on a very chilly winter weekend.
Will stay here again .... and again...and again!
My only slight bug bear, is that there was this time and last time mould on the bathroom sealant, which is both totally preventable and curable using bleach. Housekeeping should be more particular about this as it is not nice to see.

Room Tip: Front/ Castle Street facing rooms have large windows and are brighter.

me and my boyfriend stayed at castle street as a weekends break before christmas to get away and do some shopping. the staff are fantastic and cant do enough for you, our room was gorgeous and the separate dining/living area really made it special. the location is fantastic with cafes, bars and resteraunts dotted around immediatley outside plus a very convieniant sainsburys local next door but one. its then a 2 minute walk to liverpool one and the met quarter - another short walk brings you to the docks too.
we left our luggage in the care of the hotel after checking out on sunday morning while we enjoyed more time in the city, we returned late afternoon and the helpful staff called us a taxi which arrived within seconds while we collected our luggage. perfect end to a perfect weekend!!

My boyfriend and I stayed here as a mid week treat. Fantastic location - we took a trip to Anfield stadium which was only about 10 minutes away and went shopping around the corner at Liverpool One. The room and hotel itself looked lovely.Very spacious room with great facilities.

Our problem occured when we went down for our evening meal. It is understandable that there is bound to be lack of atmosphere when we are the only couple dining, but we expected to be served to a much higher standard when paying quite a high price. We were taken to our seats then ignored until we asked for something to drink (staff were chatting around the bar). Food was ok- overpriced and nothing special at all. Nobody spoke to us throughout our 3 course meal, not even to offer us more drinks which we finished quickly. On the whole, felt like a bit of a inconvinience to the staff who just looked bored! A pretty misreable dining experience overall!

Room Tip: Try and go at busier times for more atmosphere in the evening
