Stayed here Monday 6th June to Wednesday 8th June only two great things about this hotel was a comfy bed to sleep in and the location. Shower in our room didn't work properly water came out really slow and the shower controls were difficult to figure out. Staff were very rude and had a attitude everything seemed to much trouble for them and they didn't have the caring attitude expected for a hotel. It was really noisy through the night stamping and banging all night. Floor in the bathroom was tiled so really slippery when wet. The hotel refused to serve us a drink at 9:50pm at night so we never got a nightcap before we went to bed. On Wednesday morning when we left and checked out they cancelled breakfast without warning so we never even got what we paid for and what was included in the price of our stay. Massively avoid this b&b because in my opinion it's not worth the money ! AVOID

1st staying in a few years (blame covid), to emphasise this is a basic hotel but the price, especially on a football wend reflects this. The room as always was clean, tired with no door on the bathroom (thankfully a single room!) with a small shower gel in the bathroom. No hairdryer or shampoos etc. but you know this going in. Huge tv, tea and coffee and comfortable bed. Would like a chair. The staff as always are down to earth and lovely. Breakfast now seems to be served at times per floor, novel. Simple, juice, tea, toast, ham/cheese. Fine. Bar can be lively with footie folk. Very quiet even when my room was on the main road. 2 mins walk from station and shops. Stay again? if the price is right = 100%

Positives: The Bedding was clean as was the bathroom. Kettle with coffee/tea. Shabby is probably a good description. Our room was nothing like the pictures above. The room was like a matchbox - it smelt very musty and damp when we arrived. Wardrobe was a cupboard in the wall. Would not want to stay there in the winter - broken sashcord window which wouldnt stay open = no d. glazing. No Central heating - 2 independant electric heaters. No heating in bathroom. Bedding felt damp but at 1.00 in the morning it was too late to complain ! public areas felt unclean and banisters were horrid - did not want to touch. 3/4 floors NO LIFT or facilities for people with disabilities ! Will not return.

Booked for a family holiday to visit relatives, wasn’t our first choice but went with this hotel as no availability on our chosen dates and was in close proximity to lime street station. Didn’t find staff very friendly or helpful. Wasn’t very family friendly, over our stay we were woke multiple times through the night by staff and guests shouting outside our room. People smoking in rooms, could smell from the hallways. A plus was that Breakfast was included, but something my partner likened to “being in a school canteen with strict dinner ladies” wasn’t an enjoyable experience. Over all wouldn’t recommend if with a family, more suited if you want a budget friendly bed for the night after a night on the town.

Weekend stay and first impressions were we had got the wrong place . Down an alley and up some steep stairs so - travel light . Room adequate but took us about 10 mins to read all the A4 typed sheets of paper stuck in every available space . Aroma of weed on the corridor, which needs attention from anyone who sells carpets . Next morning - off for a 10 min walk to shops so location , near railway station too = fine . On our return a welcomed note from someone requesting us to 'cut the noise' or else we could be kicked out . The walls were thin as we heard nearly all of the late night news without our TV being on and a guest with a frequent smokers cough at least once every 5 mins so maybe being kicked out could have been favourable . Staff when we saw them were fine . No mention about anything including noise so we kept quiet . Budget hotel with average prices but needs a real spruce up as can't recommend to my worst enemy at the moment .

This would’ve got the full five if it wasn’t for the fact that the lift wasn’t working! I have chronic pain and found climbing to the third floor agonising!! The hotel is a little worn looking and basic and the walls are THIN - but it was ideal otherwise. Bed was clean and comfortable and the shower spews molten lava! Staff (I think it’s a family run place) were all lovely and friendly I would definitely stay here again!

Filthy, incredibly noisy, very run down, I couldn’t believe how bad it was. We paid for two nights but left after one and didnt even consider asking for a refund. We couldn’t wait to get away.Worst hotel ever stayed at.

Having had a basic night's sleep for a budget £35 was ready to leave am average review. WiFi was good, bed was comfortable. No hot water despite running tap as on instructions. Unable to shut bathroom window - too high up and so noise all night. Floorboards are creaky. They did keep me awake but with people returning to rooms through night I still wouldn't have slept Told there was complimentary Continental from 8 but area blocked off with chairs No body about- no instruction of where to leave key so.pushed it through reception screen. Shouted out down street' You have to pay ' ??? Apparently CCTV showed me reaching??? Lifts out of order. Bar closed. Not worth the hassle in my honest opinion Will not book and will tell all my friends who stay in the city to Avoid with a capital A.

We were visiting Liverpool for a couple of days during the middle of a random week off I had before starting a new job. I spent about an hour looking at different hotels in the City but the prices varied from being cheap but miles away from the Centre or, ridiculously expensive even when trying to book with some of the hotel chains that claim to have cheap rooms. After a couple of searches on comparison websites and having looked at some pictures, we read the reviews for The Lord Nelson Hotel and decided to book for two nights. It cost £120 for a twin room and this includes a continental breakfast each morning between 9am and 10am. So off we set on the train to Liverpool. Arriving into Liverpool Lime Street station, I pulled up Google maps and it states that the hotel was about a 5 minute walk away. In reality, if you walk out of one of the exits that is not the main exit from the station, it is a two minute walk up a back street. The hotel appears on your left hand side next to, what looks like, a dilapidated night club. The sign of the hotel is quite prominent so you cannot miss it as you approach it but the outside of the building looks very worn and old. I can remember approaching the front door and thinking about how run down it looked outside and thinking about how this may be echoed in the hotel itself. You enter from the street up some steps and come to a locked door next to reception. We buzzed to be let in and as I walked in, I was pleasantly surprised at how big the hotel was but also, how it looked a lot better on the inside than it did on the outside. The receptionist was polite, gave us the free WiFi code and pointed out where to go to our room. Opposite reception is a large seating area and a bar and as you walk passed reception, to the right hand side, there is another lounge to sit in. There are also toilets on the ground floor and hand sanitiser available to keep your hands clean. When we went, the lift was out of order so we hiked it up to the third floor on some steep steps. There are fire doors at the bottom of each landing which half open to let you through but they are heavy and it is not ideal when you are carrying a bag or a suitcase as ours kept getting stuck. We found our way to our room and let ourselves in. Opposite the door was a separate bathroom with a shower and toilet and down a short passageway, there was another door which led to our room. There were two large double beds, a TV, tea and coffee making facilities and hangers for our clothes. The room was clean, tidy and smelled OK. One of the issues that we had was that the room was too cold and even with the heater on, it was still quite cold and there were no additional blankets and only one additional pillow. Another issue that was disappointing was that they did not have decaff coffee in the room (and when I asked, I was advised they never have it) which meant I had to skip my morning coffee for a tea. There were complimentary shower gel and shampoo in the bathroom and enough towels for the two of us. When you are walking up and down the stairs in the hotel, it has a weird sort of, hostel like feel to it even though everyone has individual rooms. The corridors look dull and worn and there is nothing warm or welcoming for you to look at as you do make your way to the room once you have left reception. Another thing that becomes apparent from walking around the hotel is just how poor the sound insulation is between rooms and the corridor. This was emphasised in our case when we were spoken to by the manager because someone put in a complaint about us keeping them awake which may or may not have been warranted. The hotel manager was professional, polite and reminded us that it was an old building so sound insulation is not brilliant but that we needed to be mindful that if we were talking (or arguing) loudly, we had to be mindful of other guests. It was good to see that the management were responsive to customer feedback and that they actively sought to ensure this did not happen again. I apologised for any noise that we made that kept people awake and explained that I would not like it if someone kept me away too. I did feel slightly awkward afterwards and I felt like I had to whisper and whenever my husband started to laugh, I had to shush him down in case we got another complaint. There are several notices taped to the back of the bedroom door and one of them states that if there is a noise complaint, you call the porter and if the noise does not stopped, the people involved will be asked to leave. There are also the terms and conditions of your stay and what else is available from reception. I appreciate that this is important information but having it stuck to the back of the door made me feel like I was at school and that those were the rules that if I broke them, I would sent to the headteacher. It would be better and, in my opinion, more professional to have a guest folder with the information in. Throughout the night and early morning, you can hear the corridor doors opening and slamming which does not contribute to a good nights' sleep if, like me, you are a light sleeper. Another thing that I noticed is that there appeared to be the smell of green (marijuana) on some of the floors which was not pleasant to smell when having to go down passed that particular floor. I appreciate that there is limited input the hotel can have if their guests chose to smoke dope outside of the hotel but they can invest in some air freshers so other guests do not have to be affected by another individual's choices. The hotel is located about a ten to twelve minute walk to the main shopping part of the City so it is good if you want somewhere close enough to the shops but far enough away to be swamped with people. The area the hotel is in looks quite rough because some of the shops look like they have been forgotten and closed down but we did not have any major problems when out and about. So, the ultimate question, would I stay here again? £120 for two nights including breakfast is quite competitive when compared with some of the other hotels in the area that cost more but did not offer breakfast. That said, it would probably not be my first, second or third choice if we were to return to the City as I would probably be prepared to pay slightly more for a better feeling of comfort and sleep. The hotel states that it cannot control the noise outside the hotel and due to being a City centre hotel, this is beyond their control and I accept this but that does not stop the noise in the hotel itself which, apart from us, is not excessive but does keep you awake if you are a light sleeper. I would also suggest that this hotel would not be ideal for anyone who uses a wheel chair, has a push chair or has mobility needs as the lift is currently out of action and from other reviews on here, it has been like that for a while. The hotel offers a fair price for the experience that you get and if you are looking for somewhere that you will not spend a lot of time in and just need someone to get your head down, this could be the place for you. The rooms are basic in their detail, decoration and furnishings but you can lock your door, watch your TV and have a cuppa in a clean space. This hotel has a lot of potential and it has a great space on the ground floor which is one of its selling points but it will require significant investment in order to bring it up to the basic standards that customers have come to expect from larger competitors who can offer a similar price per room. If the hotel does not have the investment, it will lack repeat customers and experience more negative reviews which may mean that the hotel goes on to become unviable and it will have to close which I would hate to happen. The empathis needs to be about getting the basics right and I do not quite think they are there yet if they cannot even provide decaff coffee. I am glad we stayed there as it was what we wanted, a cheap place to stay for two nights in the city Centre but I would not be in any rush to go back there if alternatives were available.
