Recent guest reviews

Wanted to stay at this hotel for many reasons from my past. terrible room on the first night 6th floor closet as the hotel was full and we checked in "late" 6pm. Breakfast was awful to sat the least I was told because 14 coaches were in the hotel, food was the same every single day and was 70% empty at the buffet 3 days in a row we skipped one day due it being so bad. One bright spot was the Romanian? gentleman who checked us in very good customer service. However the best highlight was the dinner in the French restaurant, dont let the dated decor and menu fool you, As a Chef I can tell you this food was right on point , you would get nothing better in any hotel anywhere.Although service was no where near the same level. This could be andshould be a Grand Dame of the city but as we were told "The Owner" is just milking it dry and wont spend any money on it,sad really.

There is a 14 GBP fee / day in the car park Otherwise, good location , about one mile from the Quays , many picturesque restaurants and pubs in the nearby

The hotel was pleasant enough and a good value, just in need of updating. Aside from enhancements to the bathroom, it seems the room had had no improvements in a generation...

You can tell that at one time this was a glorious hotel, but the property is run down and doesn't offer much beyond a bare-bones room. It's clean, sure, but the rooms lack basic amenities like an ironing board, has terrible wi-fi, the lifts are unreliable, etc. But it's cheap and very close to the train station and a good selection of pubs and restaurants.

This hotel was very central in Liverpool. It was just a couple of blocks from the Lime Street Station and a few blocks West of the University, which was why I was visiting Liverpool. It was also close to the shopping district and other quarters of Liverpool. The hotel was just nice, not fantastic, but nice. There was a grand lounge area which was a throwback to the great days gone by of hotels. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. However, the bedroom was tucked away in some distant corner of the very large hotel. You had to go up to the 1st floor down a hallway, then down some back service stairs, and then through another corridor to get to the room. The elevators were very slow and small, and so that made it even more tedious to get to and from the room. We were in Liverpool only one night so it didn't bother us that much. Overall, an average decent hotel in a great location.

I have stayed in nicer 1 star hotels then this place. The walls and ceiling were covered with water stains and mold. The view was of a concrete wall which they refer to as "the balcony" that you can not get to. The shower was a painful experience seeing that it seemed that if someone in the hotel flushed you get scolded. I was woken up on multiple occasions with the alarm going off which I was told they have no control over. I also got woken one night by water dripping on the floor from the leaking window. The tea pot in the room had things growing inside of it and when I asked for a new one that was clean they went to another room and brought me one that did not have as much stuff growing in it, my dogs' water bowl is cleaner then what I was given. The food is over priced and absolutely disgusting I knew what it was that I was supposed to be eating yet it all taste like card board. I had to buy a cell phone just so I could make calls as they were unable to get me a working outside line for local or international calls. This place is way over priced, they could be charging half of what they are and it would still be to much for the dump of a place it is. Please do not let anyone fool you like I was and tell you it is a nice place and how it has history and they have heard wonderful things about it, this place is an absolute dump and, there is not one nice thing I can say about it....wait that is a lie the lounge was pretty which made the LONG waiting for tea service a little more bearable. Please what ever you do don't stay in the Adelphi Hotel you will regret it.

I didn't believe hotels this bad still existed in England. Rooms are old and need improved decoration. Bed was also old and had little padding in the mattress. Lighting was insufficient to light the room in the evening. Shower would change from scalding hot to cold in the mornings without any adjustment. TV had smaller screen than my laptop and half the channels had bad interference. Free wifi didn't work. Buffet breakfast was not good, warm orange juice and cold coffee...and don't even get me started on the food! Next time I'll pay the extra and stay at the Premier Inn or Travelodge as I have before!

I was really looking forward to my stay here but upon arrival I found, no parking (not even valet), the rooms were old and beat up. In Short, a disappointment. This obviously once was a grand hotel but needs some serious updates.
