It's so nice to see old buildings like this functioning and not being left to rack and ruin. The building has, in my opinion, been sympathetically restored with emphasis on its previous reincarnation as a terminal building for the old Liverpool (Speke) airport.
The hotel itself was very pleasant to stay in. Rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean and, as has been stated repeatedly in previous reviews, the staff are friendly and helpful. There is free parking too. We neither ate at the hotel nor took advantage of free use of the gym next door so I cannot comment on that.
The obvious disadvantage to this hotel is that it doesn't have a city centre location and you'll really need a car to see the sights downtown. However, having stayed in downtown hotels I prefer this hotel and will be staying there again in the future. If booking via the IHG web site you can get some great deals too.
