Friendly efficient staff and a comfortable room. Good breakfast choice. Room was too hot. Bathroom look tired - grouting and sealant could do with a dose of bleach to remove disclouring and mould.
health and fitness facilities, clean room bar and restaurant area were bland
No real bad points although the window could do with a clean as it wasnt very pleasant looking out but didnt really affect my overall experience.
We liked the near location of the shopping center and to Tesco, since there were some things we needed to purchase before the christening. The rooms were clean and we had hoped to get more use of the rooms. We did not like the fact that we had arrived at 8 a.m. drove from the airport and had asked to have the rooms available at 9 a.m. However when we arrived, we were told that the rooms weren't ready, we had to wait until nearly 10, then the twin room ws not a twin, just a double bed. We had to ask to get a twin as it was booked that way, Again a wait and they were moved to the next floor up, not adjacent to our room.
Very frendly staff
helpful staff, central location, relaxed atmosphere
Well located to take in Liverpool & Manchester surrounds, great value for money.
Liked the parking facility, the dining room and the general appearance of the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
After complaining to reception staff about the night staff found their attitude to be quite flippant. I wasn't offered any form of reimbursment or even a token of apology.
Clean and friendly. Cost of the bar drinks.
The staff are always friendly. On this visit the e mail from booking.com hadn't come through the whole time i was there.
My only negative was that my reservation hadnt been passed from booking.com to the hotel. The hotel did however honour the booking and the rate.
Good location and very nice looking Gym was very small Food was priced high for the quality
service at breakfast - slow, forgot orders, dirty cups, dirty cutlery, jam pot smeared with dried ketchup, tray where jams etc stood on table was dirty - think honey , poor selection fruit, evening meal in lounge our first choices were not available, and starter was sent out with homous instead of guacamole as they had run out of that also. Bathroom smelt of old urine. Room was noisey from a TV next door / interconnecting door which was not turned off until 2am - hotel staff did not want to enter room to turn it off as guest was out so they moved my room at 00.30. charged us for full cooked breakfast instead of continental on both mornings. Also larger coach party was staying at the hotel all of whom were up at 6am making alot of noise in corridor this wasn't a problem as also had an early start but would of recommended trying to seperate coach party guests and other guests if they have got an early departure. My collegue was also woken by people on motor bikes outside her room in the early hours. and her bathroom smelt of drains on the 2nd day
Bar and restaurant service was poor
convenience having to wait over 1 hour to check into room
Front desk staff were excellent The coffee for breakfast and the separate coffee bar were uniformally terrible. Training as a barrista would help them get a decent coffee out of what is a good espresso machine.
We were able to stay in a good hotel with our dogs. No
The gardens outside outdated interior in the room; non functioning heating
The leisure facilities
Only 2 days old everything new staff very helpful
Excellent value - very clean - good location No bad points
The hotel was well located for my purposes, staff were unobtrusive, room was clean with a good bathroom. Tip: ensure you get a room away from the main road. The cooked breakfast buffet set me up nicely for the day. Do not drink the coffee at breakfast, it's only distantly related to the real thing.
ease of access from major roads network. Cleanliness
The room was very warm and comfortable and the buffet breakfast was more than enough too last until lunch time The television had no sky or freeview channels
staff very good. nothing was a chore for them
From check in through to check out on the sunday the staff throughout the hotel were very freindly and helpfull and I have booked a further weekend break 08/08/2008 keep up the good work
Very helpful and friendly staff, very clean, smart-looking rooms. No refrigerator or air conditioning.
Hotel was everything that I would expect from Ramada. Excellent I currently stay in a former Ramada Encore hotel in Walsall with the same excellent facilities and self service breakfast at no extra cost. The only bad point would be the extra charge for breakfast.
Good rooms, clean and tidy. Courteous staff. Could do with more heating in this bad weather! Cold during the night.
Perfect room. Very good location.
The marbled elegance and old time styling. I worked there 47 years ago We did not like leaving
The staff were extremly helpful and friendly. Only stayed one night, breakfast excellent and parking availability excellent
Convenience of location. Pizzeria was not of the high quality I would have expected. I also think that breakfast of some sort should nhave been included in the price. The number of smokers hanging around the front entrance sets a very low standard for the hotel.
Breakfast was poor and poor value for money cattle market
Good location The hotel building and some of the decor would surely have been very impressive in its heyday, but is now very shabby and in desperate need of renovation and cleaning! Breakfast was poor.
Access to the city centre
friendly people, obliging and it was very comfortable.
very loud noise outside from pub/saloon till midnight
The location and the buffet breakfast was superb. The lift and bathrooms are very old. Also the way people stand outside to smoke
we like to go away as many weekends as poss, but not @ £114 per night, which is what we paid. the last time we stayed there early this year we paid £59
Great location, with a ton of potential. Cheap feeling, outdated, not kept up.
Cool rennovated warehouse with appropriate light industrial finishings. Nice blend of retro with very modern upgrades. Less than two miles to Anfield ( we walked back from match - all downhill). Service (front desk, bar, and concierge) did not match otherwise outstanding facility. Distance from downtown perhaps made ready cab or Uber service a little longer than normal. Staff appeared newly hired and perhaps less experiences in how things were supposed to work. Tried hard but had to seek directions from others. Given time on the job, expect service will improve. Would give another try.
I absolutely loved this hotel! I slept in for my flight and a member of staff came n woke me up! helped me to pack my stuff! seriously beautiful hotel! Around the corner from d main party square and two minutes away from the main shopping area! go here! the staff are amazing!
Comfortable bed, good facilities and very friendly staff The room would be greatly improved by the addition of an easy chair and a toothbrush holder or glass in the bathroom. Only 2 teabags left which seems pretty mean spirited, I'm sure you can afford more.
loved everthing bout the hotel 1 of the best city centre hotels ive stayed cool trendy very central good local discounted carparking and very friendly staff will definatly be back! nuthin it was top notch!
Excellent location, staff were friendly, rooms were very modern, clean and provided all necessary amenties. Shower was excellent.
It was very close to everything! The bus station, the nightlife, restaurants and the shops were all within 5 minutes walking time or less! :) We couldnt open our window and the room just felt a teeney bit claustrophobic because of it!
This is a very new hotel voted 1 on Trip Advisor. I visit Liverpool often and have stayed in many hotels. The room was very clean, high-tec design was ok - good to be close to s many places of interest. Good bathroom. Awful air-con, cold air blowing directly onto the bed all night was very poor - very little sleep! Staff unable to fix? Alternative room offered seemed to have a similar problem - no upgrade suggested/offered to compensate. Single room was the size of a large cupboard, bathroom almost as big.........? I hope the double rooms are bigger?
Perfect! I haven't a bad word to say about base2stay.
Frankly I liked everything.
Room had everything you could wish for, very well planned and thought out. Had a water cut off mid morning which was a little inconvenient as I was mid showering when it went off.
staff very freindly and polite There was a function on with loud music until late, it would have been nice to been informed first.
Check in was effortless. Rooms were are of a very good standard and clean. The extra bed was very uncomfortable.
We could not use any water facilities until 4pm on Saturday 27/11/2010.
breakfast ansd staff were great
The room was nice and modern and the lobby was big with outdoor seats staff were friendly. The location is quiet at night. We had requested an room with a view of the Mersey which we didnt get. The dining room carpet was very dirty and the hotel is a little far away from the city centre.
Staff were terrific - from the Reception to the person who brought us fried eggs at breakfast - great team! Not a thing - better than I expected.
I stayed a week at this hotel,and would definitely stay again when I return to Liverpool.
very helpfull & very friendly staff.Top quality hotel without stuck up staff! Rooms excellant huge comfy bed, clean,well stocked mini bar,great sized rooms.lovely pool. can't wait to return!! Food prices a little too expensive so didn't eat at hotel.
Good service and pleasant staff. Room great and enjoyed using the gym. Very close to many good restaurants. None really
An excellent room, the bed was very comfortable, very clean, there were excellent facilities the sauna & gym were great. We were offered breadfast for £10 each on check in but did not book as we were unsure what time we were meeting friends the next day on the following morning the offer was withdrawn this was the only fault we found with this hotel.
Clean, modern, good leisure facilities, friendly staff, top quality breakfast. Lots of 'city' noise during the night, no bath (executive room), bit if a battle to get the internet switched on (we had paid for it in our rate), pretty expensive.
Breakfast and service, piped sound into bathroom, tea and coffee in room, large comfortable room, desk and MP3 music player lead Not much -- all was pretty good
The city center location was spot on. The friendly staff. The room was very clean and welcoming. The bar facilities were excellent. In my view an all round perfect hotel.
The Hotel is right at the centre of Liverpool, I felt the hotel description could elaborate more on this. Minutes away from the young and lively night life of Bold street, in the other direction only minutes from Church street with its outside craft/food stalls and a great selection of shops to whet your appetite on the way to Liverpool one. Hotel staff are excellent, very friendly however, they speak extremely fast and it was difficult to understand. They were very patient when I kept saying, I'm sorry I don't understand what you are saying. The bar is modern, fresh and inviting. The carpet outside the lift on the 8th floor where our room was loacted was very dirty.
Comfortable, secure, great location for shopping Expensive restaurant...Hotel booking made on the Internet back in July and although we weren't staying until late November the money was debited in July.
Its excellent location to most places within Liverpool. No free Wifi on site.
Excellent service but slow check in due to queue and only two staff at the desk - I was in a rush to get to a conference dinner and as delayed because of this. As above
Conveniently located for theatre break. Clean, well equiped, compact modern hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Excellent shower. Good selection at breakfast although sausages/bacon looked a bit undercooked. Although the shower was excellent the wc is separate from the ensuite and doesnt have a washhand basin and is less convenient than a traditional en-suite. Expensive bar prices.
The staff in this hotel are absolutely supurb None
the staff was efficient ,we were able to check in as soon as we arrived which was great. finding a toe nail on our bedroom carpet as we entered the room 345
Good location with friendly staff. A little "spa" was a good extra for daddy and son. Nice room. Only one thing, dinner pasta was actually awful, although the starter soup was excellent.
Excellant staff, from doorman through to room service and restaurant staff - well done all. (1) Not really a bad point just one of slight irritation, and it happens in a number of hotels, staff in restaurants continually asking "is everything alright". I suppose its just getting the balance right. (2) Again not a big point, but checking and ensuring things like mini bar doors and wardrobe doors don't bind, etc but are set-up correctly are proper touches for a hotel like the plaza.
Excellent attentive and pleasant staff Food prices very high in bar, excessive.
Friendly courteous staff, excellent location 10 min walk to Liverpool One shopping centre. Large room with computer desk/chair, comfy bed, excellent breakfast and enjoyed the evening meal in the restaurant - excellent value. Parking only £9 over stay. Bathroom & bath was a little small
The reception staff were very friendly. The design of the hotel is stunning. The breakfast menu was unbelievable, such a fantastic variety to choose from.
Location and parking facility Not enough staff in dining room on the Sunday morning which was very busy due to a wedding on the Saturday
Good parking very good breakfast
From the cleaner to the manager, everyone was extremely helpful There were no bad points
Location was great and the breakfast was really nice. The food in the restaurant was also very good. The air conditioning was a bit weak. It was cold when we were in Liverpool and it took about an hour for the airco to warm the room up.
The location and the use of the executive lounge Paying extra for internet in an executive room
Thought the hotel was fantastic - great view, lovely room, great bar, great breakfast and good ambience. No radio or music in room v disappointing. The staff member on duty when we checked out wouldn't believe us when we said we had only had two drinks other peoples drinks had managed to get onto our bill. We were left waiting for a long time while she tried to sort this out and then we received no apology when she realised she was in the wrong!!!! Very poor customer service.
Rooms ready when we arrived. Reception and bar staff very helpful.
Central with good adjacent facilities Room poorly cleaned
It was brand new and very well situated for shopping and nightlife in the City I think it is a misguided strategy to charge for bottled water in the room-this seems a small point but it is the only hotel I have been to that does not provide it free of charge.
room and location were excellent Staff in the bar were poor. very slow and not attentive. Left to go to a bar outside the hotel as a result.
nice location friendly staff one thing i didnt know adout the room before hand ,it had a door linking up to another room this meant you could hear people talking quiet clearly in the early morning when we stay again we will look for a room that dont have this link up door otherwise we could have no fault with the hotel it was excellent will stay again
Great location, new modern business hotel Management need to take responsibility for training staff properly. This needs to come from the top and filter down. Tea and coffee being slammed onto the breakfast table is not acceptable nor is a poorly trained bartender who knows nothing about the area he is working on. With a few adjustments things could run much slicker.
The overall layout of the hotel ,the decor and design quiet unique Price rather expensive considering it did not include breakfast
Everything - great staff and excellent atmosphere
The food at Blakes restaurant was amazing and all staff were very helpful throughout the hotel. The decor is luxurious and rooms are spacious.
Location good TV programming. Including Sky sports Bathrooms very dark. Bad lighting. Breakfast selection ok at best
The central lokation, the design and the comfort.
The public spaces downstairs - bar lounge etc - air of activity and comfort The room while very well furnished and serviced was on the small side for an hotel of this tarriff
Tastefully themed and in the heart of the city.
Location was very close to Cavern Club. Check in was confusing, person at the counter acted as if it was her first hour on the job. Went to lounge for a drink, was hoping to hear beatles music... after all, we were staying at the Hard Days Night Hotel. They were playing beatles music, but it was so soft we could barely hear it (and not because there were so many people talking, there were only 4 people in the lounge). I asked them to turn it up, which they did ever so slightly. Still only soft background music. We were not looking for loud, just something we could hear without straining. Had yet another bad experience with concierge (Kevin). We had purchased tickets to the Cavern Club Beatles tribute band show through the hotel. Asked Kevin when we should plan to arrive for the 8 PM show to be sure we got seats (explaining that I had read on line that seating was limited and you had to arrive early to get seats even if you had purchased tickets). Kevin dismissed my concern, saying we just had to be there at 8 and handed us the tickets. When we got to the room I read the tickets, they also said that seating was limited and that a ticket didn't guarantee a seat. Decided to ignore Kevin's guidance and it was a good thing we did. We arrived at 7, people were already lined up. By the time the doors opened (7:45) the place was full of people lined up to get in. We got a seat, but had we listened to Kevin we would have been standing for the entire show, which ended just after midnight.
the staff were extremely freindly and hepfull no
The beatles theme throughout the hotel is fascinating a must see for any beatles fan. The hotel staff are very helpful and even tried to get us tickets for the comedy club. There was a strange noise almost like a tube train that was very annoying. I did complain and was given a £20 discount. They thought it was the air conditioning.
I liked the rooms the location and help from the concierge. The breakfast was extremely disorganised, overcrowded with no cutlery set out. It was a buffet but you had to ask for everything!
excellent hotel took my partner for his birthday handy for the shops freindly staff would stay again and tell all my freinds on the isle of man where i live nothing
An very good two day, first stay, we will stay again when in Liverpool. None
lovely hotel no faults with rooms or staff , plesent and helpful,, lifts where bit crazy , could end up on any floor after pressing for the floor you had asked for,front door couldnt get out with a pushchair tight squeeze, only for having my partner with me wouldnt of got out at al as you need someone to carry on pushing the door around,
Its new and modern We asked for a wake up call - didnt get it. We also asked previous evening to book taxi for 4.45am as we had an early flight. We ended up having to get the night porter to ring a taxi at 5.00am. for us.
Good location. Excellant value for money. Didn't like using the entry key in the lift. It didn't always stop at the correct floor
Comfortable bed and the pub next door! (The Baltic Fleet) Room was on topfloor and close to lift shaft - too noisy. Also, inadequate breakfast facilities...side plates in lieu of dinner plates and not sufficient space to accommodate the number of guests - you end up eating breakfast practically in the reception area.
central location close to the shops and the albert docks with very helpful staff.very modern bedrooms and bathrooms . very busy breakfast area
Very well kept hotel, and staff were generally nice. On check in they wanted to take credit card and take money from it, I usually pay on check out and we wanted to pay cash as we have no credit card. The manager was unwilling to help us at all and wouldnt take deposit or anything and insisted we get credeit card from somewhere or we couldnt stay! I thought was outrageous and prejudice against people who dont have credit cards we had used a prepay to book hotel. In the end we had to get our friends credit details just to secure the room and then pay on check out. I found this very inconvienent and embarrassing to be treated like that!!
Staff very helpful. The parking facility was secure but at the moment a bit awkward to drive in and out of because of ongoing building alterations.
The hotel offered a good allround service and was excelent for our stay. I coundnt fault the hotel
Modern. Friendly staff. Bit far away from "civilisation", not the nicest of walks to the hotel.
Free cheese at 5:00
So clean!! It small but space was used brilliantly. Did realize all room had glass enclosed bathrooms which made it awkward for my niece and I. We took turns sitting in the hallway whilst the other took a shower.
It was close to everything the city has to offer.
proximity to city centre Tip to have privacy in en suite. Buy a newspaper and sellotape. Attach newspaper to the outside of glass and then shower in private
Great location. Close to Cavern area and Mooresfield underground station. Rooms are extremely small -- smaller than a cruise ship's smallest cabin.
It was central to where we wanted to be in Liverpool Room was small and compact, toilet/shower cubicle within the main area.
Great staff... location great and rooms clean. No real storage space in rooms.
Love not having a window no street noise which was better than I thought Air conditioner constantly was running through it system. Made it hard to sleep
Cleanliness, excellent customer service, peaceful and comfortable stay. Overall a great experience Nothing. Everything was perfect.
Location! The hotel is a short walk from Matthew Street and Liverpool One. Hotel is in the Hart of City Centre. The staff is extremely friendly. Will stay again. If there is one thing I didn't like is the lack of stairs or an extra elevator. Nothing too bad, but can slow you down if you are in a hurry.
The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean and fit for short stay
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
the rooms were very clean no
i had a very enjoyable stay here great location great service and great value
New hotel, ideal location (near the dock etc), nice and comfy rooms There were some teething problems with a new hotel. The fire alarms went off in the middle of the night twice on our 1st night. On 2nd night, no hot water. it was disappointing that the staff in the hotel wasn't able to tell us how long it would take to fix the problem.
we went to a concert at the echo arena and this hotel could not have been more covienient the pillows weren't very compfortable
All the staff were very helpful and welcoming No food (even sandwiches) available after 10.00pm. At the bar, plenty of alcohol available, but the coffee/hot chocolate machine was switched off at 10.00pm. No choice of teas in the room.
The bar and restaurant areas were lovely and the service was excellent.
The room was very basic, and for some reason although there was only two of us, they had made another camp bed type thing up, which took up a lot of room, leaving very limited space to move around the room when getting ready for our evening out!
we thought the hotel was great and staff really helpful and pleasant and would definatley stay again. and recommend to others,
central location, easy parking.
Location, clean Lack of character
Location/breakfast The bed mattress was old - need to change
the room was lovely, over looking the water. the young girl on reception was very helpful when we asked her where the place to go at night was.
This hotel is definitely not 4 star. Very disappointed at value for money I had problems checking in and checking out as the prepaid cost with Bookings.com had not been updated on their system. Tried to charge me again. Not impressed with hotel, won't be staying there again. Not a 4 star hotel. Bar was awful
Great location, clean with very friendly staff. Would stay again
Nice Room Parking is a nightmare
Location Rooms had a terrible smell to them.
location, friendly staff, comfortable bed, clean room, very good food, checkout efficient, 1st evening restaurant staff went out of their way to accommodate a late arrival hairdryer was broken, breakfast 1st morning was chaotic and prolonged, they'd run out of several key elements including plates, for which one had to wait, late delivery newspaper 1st morning, but overall an excellent experience
Hotel rooms were very small, toilet cramped, and bed was made for dwarfs!
This hotel needs some money spent on it. The food was ok. There was private function, so there was only one bar open, with no atmosphere, but three tv's! It certainly isn't 4 stars.
Restaurant/breakfast staff were exceptionally courteous, cheerful and industrious. Reception staff were cold and indifferent. Cancelled morning call for second morning but still happened. Woken at 6-15 Sunday which was avoidable if they had cancelled it as requested. When told about this the girl apologised in an indifferent way. Put us off returning.
All staff who we were in contact with were extremely polite and very friendly. Location of the hotel was fantastic.
Once out of Lime Street train station, I saw the hotel at the opposite side. That was really handy after 3 hours journey from London. Facilities are very clean, we enjoyed the leisure center. The breakfast was just perfect, no more comment needed! And the staff, I miss words to describe how friendly they were from the reception to the breakfast service up to the check out time. Thanks! With a mini-bar in the rooms, I think this hotel would deserve 5 stars status. Unfortunatelly there wasn't!
beautiful well presented hotel with charming and welcoming staff there was nothing to dislike
The best point of the hotel was it was very central The breakfast was not great and having to stand and make your own toast
The location was perfect for Lime Street Station and the city centre, and the staff were always friendly and helpful.
The room was clean, comfortable, well furnished and the bathroom was a good size and well lit. I would have liked to have checked in earlier and checked out later but this was not possible apparently due to the high occupancy of the hotel.
Location of the hotel and the excellent breakfast. Staff were also very helpful
Staff were very helpful and friendly; problem sorted very promptly, even by repairman who had come to the wrong room! No shampoo/conditioner
Good Hotel Close to Railway Station None
A great hotel that ticked all the boxes! Nothing to report - the hotel is spot on!
Great location, warm welcome, excellent food, helpful friendly staff. Real value for money. Will stay there again and would recommend to family and friends.
The hotel is very central. (Theatre, Cinema, Shopping, Bus to the airport and Anfield around the corner). Very nice and the theme is nice and classic - cruise liner travel. Security staff seemed a little suspicious and you felt a bit watched! The doors slammed loudly. There was poor ventilation in the toilets. We were on the 6th floor and ventilation fans on the roof were a bit noisy.
THE NAUTICAL THEME. ROOM WAS TOO HOT.
Location is good,because there is near train staion,so we could get drink and food.Parking is free.
Comfortable rooms. Excellent breakfast. We were in a room just above a wedding party which had extremely loud music until the early hours of the morning, preventing us from sleeping. We complained, and we did receive a discount.
the hotel was in a good location and the afternoon tea was very good value the only thing that anoyed me was magazines were advertised in the package we took hotel said they didnt have any and it was not included in the offer also sunday paper was not delivered when asked about it they hadnt got any left
The Castaway Bar
convenient location for train travel, theatre and shopping
Clean rooms, location Uncomfortable beds, small room, 11pm check out.
All of the staff were brilliant the meals were beautiful and everyone was very helpful There was nothing i didnt like about this hotel
