My wife and I stay at B&Bs around the world regularly when we can, because they are more personal and intimate, more idiosyncratic, and less sterile than large hotel chains. So, when on a recent business trip to Liverpool, I booked this B&B on short notice.
While it's a little ways out of the down-town area, bus service to the city centre is conveniently located and cheap.
The B&B is not "premium" accommodation, like some up-market B&Bs in the US or Australia. However, it is more typical of many B&Bs in the UK that I have stayed at - a home with some bedrooms. It was warm, beds were comfortable, room (facing the road) was quiet at night. Breakfasts (full English) were wonderful and Rita was a very sociable hostess. A variety of chocolates, snacks, fruits and drinks were available for guests to partake of, day or night. There was free wifi.
The bathrooms are shared - some people might prefer private baths. However, there were only 2 residents while I was there, so effectively, we had "private" baths.
I did not have a vehicle, so I can't comment on parking space etc. and did not use the living room, as I was at a meeting from early AM to late PM.
Finally, the price - 30 UKP per night - is tough to beat in a city like this. Especially when you throw in breakfast.
Price estimates for city-centre: bus - about 2UKP. Taxi - about 7-10 UKP, depending on traffic, time etc.
I would totally recommend this for a business stay-over in Liverpool, especially if you're on a budget. Romantic? No. But then again, neither is Liverpool!!!
