Stayed in a double room for 2 mid-week nights and paid £80/night including breakfast (so £40pppn). This was great value: the room was a good size, modern and very nicely decorated and had a nice view of the city. The included breakfast was fantastic value - unlimited full English and continental buffet which filled us up for the day, meaning we didn't need to spend any money on lunch/snacks throughout the day!
Very friendly and polite reception, restuarant and housekeeping staff and the whole hotel was spotlessly clean. Very comfy bed and a good selection of TV channels (32" TV).
Use of the gym, indoor (15 metre?) swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna are included in the price. Gym facilities looked good (we didn't use them) and the pool area was very clean, not too busy and generally a nice environment.
The location is great - right next to Lime Street station, a 5 minute walk to the Victoria Street restaurants/bars and 10 minutes to the huge shopping centre. Walking to the docks is about 15 minutes at a leisurely pace. Good street lighting all around the city centre and outside the hotel, clean streets and we felt extremely safe at all times walking between the hotel and the city centre.
Definitely recommended for business and leisure travellers.More
