What a great place to stay and shop. Located opposite Lime Street Station, the Holiday Inn is welcoming, clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The rooms, whilst fairly standard are big enough and have all the amenities one would expect in a hotel from this group. The breakfasts are self service and excellent value for money. For £70 a night including breakfast, two of us had a most enjoyable stay which included late check out.

Well worth considering for a shopping trip in Liverpool which has one of the best city centres in the north of England

Perfectly good rooms. Breakfast 'extra' but thought for convenience would eat in the hotel. The croissants tasted like last week's, the tomatoes and mushrooms had only been shown the grill, with no seasoning at all. But the depths were plumbed with the coffee. Used the ghastly machine first - revolting. But there was a message telling me I could ask for filter coffee as well. That was worse. It is hard to imagine how hard they must have worked to make the coffee so disgusting. Very poor, bearing in mind that everywhere you go now in the UK (except there!) you can get really decent, strong, freshly brewed coffee. God knows what their foreign visitors make of it. Get your act together - it's not difficult. If you want people to come to Liverpool it's the small details as well as the bigger picture that makes for a good experience.

We stayed in Liverpool for one night and decided on this Holiday Inn because of the central location and the near by parking at St Johns shopping centre which is only £6 for 24 hrs when staying at this hotel - you just need to get your ticket stamped when checking out.

The staff were all very welcoming and helpful and check in at 3pm was quick. We particularly thought Katie had excellent customer service skills at breakfast.

The room was fine - nothing special but clean.

Breakfast was good and there was plenty of choice.

Would stay again for a quick getaway but not for a special occasion.

If you are travelling to Liverpool by train then this hotel would be ideal as its just over the road from Lime st station.

I recently stayed here with my boyfriend, when we arrived the staff were very friendly and welcoming. When we arrived in our bedroom it was very clean and presentable, however on closer inspection there were dents in the wall, shabby leaflets and marks on one of our pillow cases. I thought these small things shouldn't have been present due to the amount of money we paid. On a more positive note, the hotel is in a great location and is close to everything you need and we were not disrupted by any noise. The breakfast was also very lovely, however we had to pay extra for this, but was worth the money. We were also able to keep our luggage at the hotel after checking out free of chrage which was very helpful. I think the location of this hotel is it's best selling point.

Dear 'Abi G',

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of your experiences at our hotel in Liverpool.

I'm glad to see that you found our staff to be welcoming, our rooms clean and breakfast great value for money.

When booking a room at the hotel we have a number of different options available to you based on either advanced purchase rates, best daily rates which each have the option of inclusive or non inclusive breakfast. Should you choose the non inclusive breakfast offer then this can also be purchased on the day at a rate of £7.50 per person for our full, all you can eat breakfast buffet. We believe this is offers great value considering the large choice of options available from the buffet.

We always recommend booking directly with the hotel for our best rate guarantee and through our website hiliverpool.com

Thank you once again and we hope to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future.

Kind regards

Simon

Do not be put off by the look of the hotel on approach. Must admit I was hesitant when saw the shopping centre but had an excellent stay. The room was very clean with two good nights sleep had by all of us. Could not fault the breakfast, it was more than sufficient but did not have any evening meals in the hotel. After the hectic nightlife of Liverpool, it was nice to relax in the bar area for a quiet drink before turning in for the night. Only feedback is not consistent service in the bar. Friday evening was excellent and the bar-man could not do enough for us - even making a coffee however on Saturday night was told the coffee machine was switched off so no hot drinks available. Can recommend a stay here and will be returning as visit Liverpool regularly due to the university.

I stayed for two nights on business, and chose the hotel for its great location - just a few steps away from Lime St station and city centre facilities. The hotel is clean and pleasant enough with a nice bar overlooking the city. However, the staff, although friendly, were a bit slack. I often had to loiter around waiting for someone to appear, and while eating in the bar I was a little disturbed by a group of staff who'd gathered around a colleague, showing off her party dress - fine for the staff room but not front of house - no matter how quiet the place might be. The bar food was adequate but overpriced for the standard. Room service meal was very poor - dried out as if left sitting under a heat lamp for too long and the tray contained no condiments or napkin. Acceptable accommodation and nice bar but better eat out!

Room Tip: Front rooms would offer best view across the city. Right side rooms also provide a good view of the...
