On arrival the lift wasn't working so we had to carry suitcases up 3 flights of stairs. The staircase was like a car park entrance. I thought this is giving me bad vibes. I was right. I had booked a 2 bedroom apartment to show friends around Liverpool. It was very tired and shabby. The walls and skirting boards are...

We were to stay at this hotel (for 2 nights - twin room) last week but due to storm Doris our flight from Belfast was cancelled. I phoned the hotel and they said there was nothing they could do because it was pre-paid and non transferable. We were willing to move the dates one day (and take a later flight...

The apartment had everything that you would need for a stay but it is very tired! Bulbs not working, blinds broken, floor tiles cracked, shabby grout in Bathroom, broken bath panel.....and £100 deposit kept for 3-5 days just in case of breakages.....never again!!

Although the whole visit was prepaid in full they still charged us double when they took the deposit which all guests have to. So, after a month we had to threat them with legal actions to get our money back, how many have been robbed like this? As for the room and location it was ok but not more. Dirty,...

Good view over the docks. Was told over the phone previously that I would be able to add on late check in upon arrival, then wasn't able to do this upon arrival. I understand why, but would have definitely appreciated it not being communicated in a manner that made it seem that It was guaranteed on the day. The building...

Great apartment, very convenient location, we arrived early, and checked in straight away, unfortunately the apartment was very small, so were upgraded, to a larger one! Very clean, coffee & tea , extremely large bath towels, fantastic wet room, & family Bathroom, would return if staying in Liverpool!

We arrived at 12 noon and was pleasantly surprised to find our apartment ready so we left our things and set off to go shopping in Liverpool . The apartment was lovely and warm . We had two bedrooms and the double had a sink and toilet in it which we didn't expect so that was a bonus. The downside...

I was really looking forward to my stay here - I stayed Mon-Fri whilst doing some training at the University of Liverpool. Location wise the apartments are 30 secs from Albert Dock - it's a beautiful place and I really enjoyed my picturesque walk every morning. The beatles museum, maritime museum, echo arena all footsteps away too as well as...

They are decent apartments if your there with a few mates for a night out in Liverpool, they are quite over priced for the actual rooms themselves but all in all was good! the location of the apartments where really good! from the train station to the apartments cost £5.50 and £3.50 on the way back!!
