First hotel stop on trip

Would recommend Fri, Feb 13, 2015
This hotel was easy to find. Location was within walking distance of most sights on our list and extremely easy access the highway to Wales when we were ready to leave town. The facility was clean, open and airy. We enjoyed being right on the water. This was a terrific way to begin our travels in Great Britain.

Great hotel for central location on a budget !

Would recommend Tue, Mar 25, 2014
Plenty of car parking spaces and it felt very secure. We were welcomed by one of the receptionists who was very polite and told us where our room was. The bed was one of the comfiest that i have slept in from any hotel. The bathroom is small, it was probably the only downside to the hotel. There was minimal room to move in the shower. But with only taking a couple of showers it was very little time i spent in their throughout the weekend. The location is great. Only 5 mins walk from the docks and to the Echo Arena and add a few more to get to Liverpool One. Couldn't wish for better. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends and i would stay here again.

Dining

If you're going to see a show at the Echo Arena, go to Blue Bar & Grill as they have a special offer on when you show your event tickets.

Cheap and cheerful

Would recommend Sun, Mar 23, 2014
We stayed here for 4 nights and overall found it a good location and very affordable. The only downside was some rather noisy other guests there which on our first night decided to talk loudly in the corridors several times until about 3am! The other nights were better with only one other incident of someone calling out a few times on another night. I'm not sure if it's possible to sound proof the doors a bit better but this might help. The room was basic and had a compact bathroom but was very clean and has a TV with a good selection of channels. The food in the restaurant is very affordable with large portions - yum! There were newspapers to read for free. The staff were polite and helpful at all times. The bed wasn't the most comfortable we've slept on but overall we were pleased for the money. The town is a bit of a walk (around 10 mins) but this was manageable. Free car parking was great too. The view from the rooms on the harbour side was lovely. I would recommend this if you are on a budget.

Shopping hint

Factory outlet Village around 30 mins away was great!

A budget place to stay at in 'Pool

Would recommend Mon, Apr 15, 2013
The Dolby is situated at close to the waterfront and about 15 mins walk away from the city centre. The rooms are a bit student dorm-like - not very spacious, with a bunk bed above the it seemed smaller than queen sized double. The bathroom is minute (not more than 2 square metres. On the up side, it's very clean, and if you only need a base for exploring Liverpool, it'll do the trick. The breakfast wasn't included in the price and is GBP5.75 and GBP7.75 for the continental and English respectively. The staff are polite and helpful.

If you want a good night's sleep, stay elsewhere

Would not recommend Tue, Mar 19, 2013
Let me say up front that the staff were nice, the hotel was clean and the location was reasonable (not a long walk to downtown, although the only businesses right nearby are McDonalds, KFC and a casino). Any positive things I have to say about the Dolby were negated by atmosphere. I found out after the fact from a few locals that the Dolby is known as a partying hotel, and it sure was. There was a 21st birthday party across the hall on my first night in town, and the partying only got worse over the weekend. The young guests would return home from the pubs, shouting obscenities down the hall, banging doors. One night at 4 AM, a drunk guy mistook my room for his and was rattling the doorknob until I shouted at him. Another night, I was woken at 4 AM by some sort of alarm -- I assume it was an emergency door because it was shut off fairly quickly. I also realized that my room was right above the bar/restaurant, and I could hear talking and laughing at all hours, stomping around, and the incessant opening and slamming shut of the sliding glass door being used by smokers. I had come to town to run the Liverpool Half Marathon, and managing a full night's rest was impossible. On top of that, the internet was out for my entire last day, preventing me from getting my last-minute travel arrangements together. Instead I had to walk into the city to use free wifi at a cafe. I reported the problem repeatedly and was told each time that they just need to reset the router. I badgered them enough that they finally checked and discovered it was a problem with the service provider. Had they actually checked in the morning instead of blowing me off, they might have been able to get it fixed. It was very inconvenient, especially considered I have no UK phone and was relying solely in the internet for communication. If you need some place cheap and clean to crash, this hotel might work for you. But expect major disturbances.

Dining

Want a drink in Liverpool but the bars are closed? Swift Drinks on Duke St sells beer and liquor until 4 AM. Don't want to leave the hotel? Check out hungryhouse.co.uk. Not only can you order food, but Dial a Beer delivers until 4:55 AM.

Best budget hotel in the area

Would recommend Wed, Feb 6, 2013
The rooms are small but very comfortable, and cater to more of a younger populace, with rooms having a queen bed and a single bunk bed, that would also be great for a couple with a young child. The staff are very friendly and efficient, and the rates are excellent. The food is always freshly cooked, the breakfasts plentiful, and the bar prices very decent. I would certainly consider staying here again.Parking is free onsite and the hotel is a good mile walk from the city centre but I would recommend a taxi if after dark.

Dining

The food is well priced and plentiful, and freshly cooked.
