My partner and I stayed here for one night on 26 July. There are lots of good things about this hotel, but there is much wasted potential here too.

We arrived a bit earlier than the advertised check-in time but were given our room straight away, which was a good start.

The building has been beautifully converted and our room (303) was huge, set out across two levels, and well-equipped with TV, CD player, iPod docking station and magazines. The bed was large and very comfortable. The bathroom is very generously sized, but given the space I was surprised that there was no separate shower cubicle.

The location is perfect, really central. I should say that, as you’d expect on a Saturday night in this location, there was noise from the street, and there isn’t any double glazing.

However, it's let down by a lack of attention to detail. The room hadn’t been cleaned properly, the light in the wardrobe wasn’t working, the décor is shabby with water damage clearly visible on the ceiling. The bathroom tiling has seen better days and there was a large crack in the loo near the hinges. The reception area and desk are messy, and reception staff seemed rather lack-lustre. All in all it just didn’t live up to my expectations of a luxury boutique hotel which is a shame because this place could be great.

We had a fantastic time in Liverpool and I’d love to go back soon, but not to this hotel.

Myself and my husband stayed here for three nights over a weekend in April. It was a present for my husband's 30th and we were also going to a Liverpool game.

We had a corner suite too, which was extremely impressive and one of the nicest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in (having travelled a good bit). The split level is a great idea-the room is spacious anyway but this creates an even greater feeling of space The lounge area was very nice to relax in when we got back in after shopping etc. The TV was huge and great to be able to swing it towards either the lounge or the bed so you could watch TV in either place easily! Ipod deck also a nice, modern touch.

The decor was lovely and well maintained and facilities in room and bathroom very good. Only slightly negative comment would be the "wardrobe", not much space if you had a lot of clothes with you, but perferctly adequate for a weekend. We had no trouble with noise or with the housekeeping service.

We ate in the restaurant only once, for breakfast, both food and service were good. Also had a drink in the bar a couple of the nights. Staff were friendly.

Location is excellent, a two minute walk to main shopping streets and bars and restaurants. Not far down to the docks either.

Liverpool wouid not be my favourite place to visit but if I can stay in this hotel every time it will be much more enjoyable!

Fawlty Towers on Merseyside! Poor service. A large flat screen TV but only 1 BBC channel and 3 Sky Sports channels. When I asked why I was told it was because 'this is a boutique hotel'! Wake up call did not happen, but later I was called to say my taxi was still waiting - yet I hadn't ordered one. Wash basins with taps so low in the basin that you have to fill the kettle from the bath tap. No separate internet cable - I was advised to unplug the phone and use the phone jack. No desk lamp, bulbs in other lamps broken. No coffee maker. Rubbish in room from previous guest. The hotel pretends to be a stylish boutique hotel but completely misses the mark.
