My husband and I spend our first visit to Liverpool staying at No62 and we were not disappointed. Hotel was to our taste - traditional building but modern rooms with character in plenty of space. On arrival, parked in small street opposite hotel until we found out how to get the parking at The One (receptionist gave me a map to find it). First room offered I felt was too dark for us - a wonderful big room with two windows but they were small and covered with dark wooden blinds overlooking rooftops - just too dark and moody to spend four days and nights in - and of course that is just my personal taste. My other half wouldn't have minded but I do like to have a nosey out the window when I'm on my hols so reception kindly allowed us to view another room facing the front which we choose even though it was probably a little bit smaller - it was brighter and looked out down towards the shopping area. Difference was of course that we heard street noise late at night/early morning but this is to be expected and it didn't bother us. So, just to let you know - bathroom - very well appointed but design over substance with the very shallow sink but beautiful just the same - I appreciated the design touches. Bed was comfy as were the big squashy chairs and I enjoyed getting ready at night listening to music from the TV (or music system if you preferred). Bed was super comfy and room was warm. A lovely full length mirror with a spotlight under it - nice! Alongside the tea and coffee in the room was yummy hot chocolate for your bedtime treat! Breakfast was good with a full choice of continental and then your choice of cooked items brought to the table. I was able to choose my favourite two poached eggs and toast and they were lovely every time! Evening dinner was much better than we could have anticipated - nicely presented and ate all of it every night - the pork belly with pak choi was my favourite - I had it twice during the visit! My husband paid extra for the steak and judged it to be very very good and cooked just as requested. Just don't ask what the Soup Of The Day is as it became our running joke - it was tomato or cream of tomato every night.! We had a deal which offered dinner bed and breakfast with cocktail "on arrival" which I cheekily asked if that was available every night (which it would be if you had guests booked on single nights!) and I was told no. However, the barman brought us our cocktail to the table on the 3rd night? A glass of rose was available at an ok price and went well with my meal. Jugs of water were offered every night which was kind and well appreciated - not everywhere would do this. The decor is lovely and makes the most of the traditional plaster and wood work whilst keeping it modern chic looking. The staircase is super with chaise long or chairs on each landing. Liverpool was great and some of the things we did included: Beatles Matthew Street for photos and a visit to the Cavern - do go down..drinks are pub/hotel prices and you may catch a really good act. We saw/listened to a John Lennon tribute which was great and made our visit Also went to the Albert Dock to the Maritime Museum, the Museum of Slavery and the Tate Modern and took a spin on the Liverpool Eye for photo opportunities. Walking was great in that area and we went right along to where the modern cruise ships dock (one was in when we visited) and then walked around the Liver Building and the Cunard Buildings. I am a sucker for buildings you can tell! Not to be forgotten was the great shopping and not just in The One centre but in smaller centres around surrounding streets - you'll find Vivienne Westwood, Flannels, etc and much more including all the designer names. No-one appeared to mind if you were just having a browse. Finally, there is a small Tesco metro or express just across the road where you can pick up your chilled bottle of wine (or other tipples etc) to sip in your room as you get ready of an evening - then pop down for your cocktail or after dinner drinks at the bar. This stay was a lovely treat for us and was well worth the £99/night we paid for the deal. Would I recommend it to you - as always, it totally depends on the type of thing you like but if returning to Liverpool I'd go back to No 62 Castle Street in a flash! In fact I've already told a family member (who is a lifelong Beatles fan but has never been to Liverpool doh!) to get down there and enjoy it!
PS for houskeeping - we found 2 blackcurrants rolling under one of the seats when I moved one to get a better view of the telly - one of which I stood in but luckily did not spread it to the cream coloured carpet. Eee yuck - furniture really should be moved/cleaned under especially at changeover but I didn't like to complain about this as this was not the room we were intended to have and they were accommodating in moving us when we asked. It did not spoil our stay - these things happen but if it were not for this then I would have scored higher for cleanliness.
