“The Pod definitely does Work!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

This is a brand new hotel in an area of Liverpool that looks like it used to be primarily warehouses and factories. With no previous reviews we were a bit apprehensive, but the price and proximity to the docks swung in it's favour, and we definitely made the right choice.

Our room was much bigger than we expected after seeing the photos on the room booking sites, and although the area does look a bit industrial, don't be put off by streetview! There are some really good independent bars on the surrounding streets, and you're 10 minutes walk from the city centre or the docks if you're looking for chain bars and restaurants that you'll recognise.

As a pod hotel they've made really good use of the space, with storage for luggage under the slightly raised beds, really well-finished ensuite bathrooms, and super-comfy bed. The accommodation is at basement level so there's no windows, but we didn't notice this as a problem and only wanted a clean room & comfy bed to come back to, not a room with a view so it suited us perfectly.

We also found the owner and staff really helpful and friendly - we stayed on their first night open and couldn't figure out how to turn on the newly installed climate control, but they came down straight away and sorted us out which was great.

There's a small bar on site as well, so all in all if you're after a city getaway with quality, comfortable rooms, great location for site-seeing, and good all-round service & facilities then the Pod Works is definitely one to watch. I'd especially rate it for couples or groups of friends, and would definitely stay again.
