Devonshire House Hotel
Travel Blogs from Liverpool
Friday 1st September We have spent the past two nights at the Devonshire House Hotel, Liverpool, and have been very impressed with the friendly service, lovely English breakfasts, and fine hospitality. The breakfast/dining room is excellent, and the guests lounge very "Old England" in comfort and furnishings, while the almost two acre landscaped …

We just got back from walking around the area near our apartment. We had dinner and the hostess recognized our accents and told us that she has family in Alberta and it turned out that our waitress was from Ontario!!! We needed a travel adaptor for the computer and met the nicest guy ever at the Apple store. He even looked up an ...

We bought a packed lunch and had a picnic in the park and we people watched for a while. There were singers who were breathtaking, activists who wouldn’t let me enjoy a bite of my ham ...

We didn't make the 55km goal for the day only hitting 40km as I wasn't feeling great in the afternoon and we decided to turn around rather than get stuck in the middle of nowhere! We made a good decision as I was still not feeling well enough the next day however after a day off from cycling and a train ride to Liverpool I am ready to get back on the bike :) Rodney, however, did ride Manchester ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Devonshire House Hotel Liverpool
Very Friendly Staff but in Need of a Serious Makeover!
The best thing about this hotel is the staff and the service. They are so friendly and can't do enough for you. The rooms are variable - I had a very spacious room but others in my party weren't so lucky. Generally the place needs a makeover though - the decor is very eighties and a little shabby although the public rooms are much better than the bedrooms.
Although this hotel is a little out of the city centre, there is tons of car parking and a taxi to town is around £5.
Didn't try dinner but breakfast was ample with lots of choice and again great service.
Overall I enjoyed my stay, would visit again and would recommend to others who want a functional rather than luxurious place to stay at a great price.
What a Venue!
My cousin was getting married at this hotel on 15th January, so my family and I travelled up from Kent. Despite the fact that the hotel was a little out of the city, it was easy enough to find. The first thing that I noticed was the building itself, a very pretty Georgian house. The reception and staff were helpful and the whole place was warm and inviting.
The wedding was held in the hotels new "Marquee Suite", which was amazing. The room was huge, and the decorations were superb. The food was piping hot and was excellent quality.
We finished off the weekend with a nice Sunday Carvery Lunch which was only £12 (for as much as you want!!)
We have planned our own weekend back at the hotel in the spring. I would not hesitate in recommending it.
V ACCOMODATING, FRIENDLY SERVICE
Loved this hotel. We had a West Wing Room which was beatuful. The breakfast was fntastic and there was a great atmosphere in the whole hotel. STAFF V FRIENDLY. NOTIHNG TOO MUCH TROUBLE. Real Treat.
Like you are staying with friends!!
Stayed at this hotel last weekend. Breakfast was lovely. The staff make you feel at ease, and are really friendly. Ask for a room with a garden view. This hotel is a bit od a kept secret, would reccommend without a doubt
Is this Budget hotel??
When I opened the door I was amazed at the state the room was in.
Wallpaper hanging off the walls.
Clear damp spots on ceiling
Plaster flaking off the wall above bed.
Window handle fell off in my hand when i opened it.
Tv had no reception
Very noisy in East wing
Poor all round accomodation
not what you expect for ther money
Incredibly warm and friendly
What an amazing hotel. We were a little worried at frst becuase we thought we would be to far outside the city, but it turned out to be only about 2 miles and we had free parking so that was a bonus. The staff were all really friendly and the whole trip felt really personal. From the moment we checked in we were made to feel really special and so welcome as if we'd been going there for years and then half the managemnt were up drinking in the bar with us after we got back from a night on the town. We were really impressed, would recommend it to anyone.
I loved it
I loved every minute of it the breakfast was great the staff were super, the rooms were very spacious and the bed was comfy, the bar and restraunt were beautiful and not over expensive i would definatly stay at this at hotel again and it isnt to far from the city centre.
I LOVED IT!!!!!
Friendly, Warm and a great breakfast
Arrived at the hotel late last week, reception team were friendly and helpful.
Room had a huge bay window, very spacious with a spa bath (spotlessley clean)
I would say that the main advantage of using this hotel is it's parking facilities. There are about 250 spaces, all free of charge, which often causes me a problem when staying city centre.
Would not hesitate to recommend, or to re - book
Don`t accept a room in the East wing as this is directly above the function room which often holds wedding and other receptions and usually includes disco entertainment, we had a room on the third floor and the bass noise reverberated throughout the whole of the building until well after midnight, unless you are part of the party make sure you ask for a room in the West wing. That said the staff were most accomodating in arranging a room transfer after an initial disturbed night.Not fantastic but acceptable accomodation in Liverpool where accomodation is becoming more and more difficult to obtain esp in the city centre.Book well in advance if possibleDerek Bell 30/11/03
