This is by far the best Premier Inn we've stayed at - and we've stayed at a fair few!
Perfect location right on the dock, opposite the big wheel and the Echo Arena. Beatles museum is on the same square and there's a Costa next door overlooking the inner dock, plus a Pizza Express across the way. Loads of restaurants around Albert Dock, plus some gift shops selling souveniers.
Short walk into the city centre (took us 5 mins) for great shopping.
Tourist open top bus seemed to stop very close to the hotel.
Hot breakfast buffet, was all excellent and promptly replenished, and it was lovely to have breakfast overlooking the waterside of the inner dock. Vegetarian options available.
Our family room was overlooking the water, top floor, and HUGE. Such a pleasure to walk in, and we loved the features of the old building - exposed brickwork and iron doors/pillars are seen throughout the corridors of this hotel, lovely mix of old and new. No faults with the room at all, very clean. We slept very well and awoke to a beautiful view of the docks and the Liver Birds.
Parking - won't be cheap as it's so central, but we expected that. We were offered discounted parking in the multi-storey carpark by the Echo Arena, but chose to keep the car right outside the hotel as my husband was having trouble walking.
Restaurant - menu looked great, and you can order food and then carry it up to your room. This really helped us as one of the kids fell asleep before we'd made it out for dinner, so we decided not to disturb him and eat. Staff were very helpful, and food was ready quickly, and hot. But in terms of food, it wasn't up to much, served our purpose and we went to sleep with full tummies, but if we'd eaten in the restaurant we would've been disappointed. Not much of an issue given the many quality restaurants immediately outside the hotel, I'd recommend eating out if you can. If you go into Liverpool One there's a world buffet restaurant on the top floor - we ate far too much, excellent food and great value.
Service - excellent, everyone we encountered was so helpful and friendly. We are already trying to figure out how we can fit in a return trip to Liverpool and will definitely be staying here. We walked past the Premier Inn Liverpool One - yes it is literally in the middle of the shops - but it looked squashed in amongst tall buildings, and soul-less. So happy we chose Albert Dock.
