What a great find; absolutely the best place I've ever stayed in this price range. The bedrooms are good sized, clean and comfortable with little touches (body wash in the bathroom; tea and coffee making facilities and a hairdryer in the bedroom) that even more expensive places don't always provide. Our room was warm enough to keep even my elderly mother comfortable but there are also additional blankets. A huge bonus is the kitchen where you can prepare simple meals or eat a takeaway in comfort. Breakfast is, astoundingly for this price, included and is 'all you can eat' cereals, waffles, croissants, toasts, crumpets.......... Well, you get the idea. I was surprised to see other reviewers describing it as a 'rough' area. This is where Liverpool working class meets studentland so it isn't pretty. But the surrounding terraced houses are well cared for and there is a thriving shopping area just a couple of streets away which is active well into the night; very useful for takeaways or to buy groceries. It's also very quiet; there's virtually no traffic. As others have said, David and Michelle are charming hosts who are working hard to upgrade all the rooms as well as keep current guests happy.
Is there anything not to like? Don't stay here if you want to be surrounded by the noise and bright lights of the city. The Old Dairy is in a peaceful area. If you were paying double the price, you might feel the kitchen is a little spartan but again, for the price it's an amazing amenity. The only other drawback? It's likely to be another 6 months or so before we can go back.
