The shining title of this review is not a compliment. I mean that it is like staying in the shining hotel (the film). Outdated and dirty. Not recommendable. Good luck if you plan to stay here and make sure you have health insurance!

Where do I start with this review? When approaching the Adelphi at the front entrance, it's hard not to be impressed by its grandness, even though it's grubby. Unfortunately it's all downhill from there. The reception staff, at least the staff on duty when I checked in, were unwelcoming, scruffy and disinterested. I was given a room on the 6th floor. The journey up in the lift set the scene, it smelled of damp as it banged and rattled it's way upwards. The corridors are fitted with stained, stripy carpets which are enough to make you feel hungover. The room was unbelievably dreary. This is the 21st century in a thriving city like Liverpool and the room is like something from the 1970s. Absolutely shocking. The bar closes at 11pm, even for residents (the Irish lady behind the bar was lovely) and not a particularly welcoming space to sit and enjoy an overpriced drink. We have tried to be in touch with the hotel since our stay and nobody answers the phone. Visit Liverpool, it's an epic city full of history and great people but stay anywhere but here. The Adelphi let's itself down, it let's the city down and more importantly it just amplifies how bad we are at hospitality.

First of all - if it wasn´t for lovely Rita and her friends at the check in, this might have been an even worse review. To wait in a check-in que for an hour and a half is not ok, especially when the management should know that the hotel is heavily booked. Bad planning. Unprofessional. Once you got to the check-in desk the staff was a wonder of patience, taking the piss that should go upwards in the hierarki. Concidering the rooms I knew what to expect and we were only sleeping there, not living there. In fact it was a bit cleaner than the last time I stayed there. The Hotel has such a potential with all the history, the fantastic lounge and other features from a greater time. Use it!

Hotel was terrible and we were over charged for our stay. Rooms were never cleaned or towels etc never changed in our three day stay, no card to hang on door to ask for this. We had two rooms one the window did not open and other did not close, taps dripped or did not work, toilet did not flush. Double room only fit for a single, no mirrors in room, lights did not work. Breakfast a joke as not replenished and run out of juice, read, bacon and glasses. Coffee machine out of order, lifts out of order all three days were were there no sign to say. Had to que for two hours to check in queue out of the door, no management present no apology and staff so slow and nothing said about waiting time. Ground floor toilets broken and dirty the ladies had one cubicle that had faeces smeared crossed the walled that was there the next day. At park was a building site with hard core only and was not secure charged up front £13 a night when car park a crossed road only £5 a night. Security on the door but undesirable people sitting on steps when arrived from a night out and was asked by security to provide our room key to prove we were staying there, embarrasi g and concerning. To say it was like faulty towers would be insulting that hotel this was far worse and really deserved a zero rating.

We arrived with fast check in, only 1 elevator worked, ended up walking the stairs only to floor 2. Reception and communal areas clean, tidy and well looked after. Arrived at our room 277. Rooms large and spacious. Beds hard and rickety. One wall light not working. Bathroom less than desirable (see photos). Bathroom window covered with a shower curtain, that don't cover the whole window with the toilet by its side. We asked for a quiet room, no other requests even stated didn't mind which floor at booking stage, thinking this would make it easier to accomodate a quieter room. From 18.00 till well past midnight all we could hear was loud music (could hear the songs word for word) from the bars opposite. I wasn't expecting a perfectly quiet room with it bring within the city but it was beyond reasonable expectations. The hotel I presume has a function on, with around 10 children at one point running up and down the stairs unaccompanied almost knocking us and other residents flying! The hotel attracts many stag and hen parties and once the music has died down from the pubs and clubs the noise then proceeds internally when they return to their rooms with the heavy fire doors slamming shut and drunken rowdy residents carrying on within the hotel rooms at last time check it was 5am! The room is lit throughout the night by a blue ringed light fixed to the wall and luminates the room. The room was overly warm (glad no heatwave) as the windows don't open (you wouldn't want to open them due to the excessive noise either), no fans or air con avaliable to cool the room down. Bedding was clean, staff are friendly enough, but definitely glad we was only stopping the 1 night! Would consider staying in the hotel again if I was on a stag or hen do, or here for the nightlife but would be less inclined to stay on a family sight seeing visit that we visited for.

got charged nearly £200 for a shoebox room for two people that was a double when I had booked a single. The rooms were barely clean and the beds were so unstable you could barely stay on them. The so called air conditioning was a fan that didn't work and due to the beer bottles strewn around the corridors and in lifts I did not feel safe there at all. Would not go there ever again and would not wish the type of experience I had there on anyone, no matter how much I hated them. very disappointing and ruined the whole weekend.

Check in took minutes, friendly helpful staff. Room basic but clean and comfortable which I expected for the price I was paying. Great location, close by to Lime Street station, shopping, bars and restaurants. Place could do with updating in certain areas but a fantastic building, constant uphill battle to keep the wear and tear in order. We did bed and breakfast which was very nice, plenty of choice and quantity…. We enjoyed our stay and will be staying here again on our next visit.

I found the hotel a strange mix and people sat outside the front entrance smoking joints wasn't a great advertisement. Parts of it, especially the lounge you can still feel the grandeur of past years and imagine how it must of been but the lack of care and detail in the bedrooms let the place down such as bed not fully dressed, messy chalking around the bath and mismatched furniture not in keeping with the history. It was clean and great for the money. Ideal location and will go back again

Firstly I blame myself for not reviewing Tripadvisor prior to booking this hotel. I was blinkered by the apparent reputation, history and which are sadly not relevant anymore. I have been fortunate to have done a little traveling in my life and can honestly say I have never had to queue that long to check in to a hotel. 1.5 to 2hours which is apparently normal on a Friday or Saturday night. The so call Double deluxe room is miss represented. There is nothing double or deluxe about it. It’s tired, can’t open windows, no air con and a very uncomfortable spring mattress. The closest experience I can recall was a trip to Alcatraz. The breakfast was a disgrace. Hardly any food, the coffee machine broken, no cup or glasses for the non existent juice selection. Overall a real shame. The building has some fantastic architectural points both inside and out but for the most part a run down rusty sheriffs badge.

We had a really good stay. Read the reviews after I booked as was not looking to it at all but was pleasantly surprised. Took about 25mins to check in, staff polite and friendly. It is run down and could do with updating but the rooms were very clean and slept like a baby. Didn't have a mirror in the main room just the bathroom which was a bit annoying but managed. Breakfast was really good and a great choice. Its in such a great location and would definitely stay again. Don't expect too much and your be fine. Honestly dont let the reviews put you off if you want cheap and cheerful.
