Waking up in Hartington Hall (no ghosts!!!) it has snowed lightly overnight. although is is very cold, we have some brecky (includig Eley's world famous pork pie we bought in Ironbridge), and wander around the grounds and the little village of Hartington.Dragging ourselves away, we start our drive to Liverpool. Stopping at a couple of little …
... Park and over the spectacular Llanberis Pass. We made a couple of stops for pictures. At one of these stops, a couple of sheep were grazing right close to the parking lot. This area mines slate, so it's really rocky. The rocks are quite shiny, and some of them are marbled with quartz. At the edge of this park is another touristy town, Betws-y-coed, which is quite pretty. I'd like to come back here for a ...
... England and then had to catch another train on platform 7 to Liverpool and once again waited about 15 min. And another hour later we got to Liverpool. Our hotel was just a few blocks away (thanks Susan) so we got rid of our luggage and I was starved for some real food so walked to The Hub bar and kitchen , walked around to look at shops BUT they were all closing at 6;30! I didn't realize Europe closed so early! I guess it gives me time to blog this. Good nite at 7:03pm ...

After a meandering trip from the Holyhead Ferry Terminal, we called in to a small village by the name of Risley, which is Jane's maiden name, so we were interested to see if there were any family connections. As luck would have it we struck pay dirt. Her Majesty's Prison. Oh and Risley Moss, a nature reserve, the land on which it is situated was in the Risley family over 500 years ago. We arrived in Blackpool, a seaside ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Dolby Hotel Liverpool
I thought the value this hotel offered was fantastic especially if there are 2 or 3 people staying.
. Having read the other reviews I must say that I found the rooms clean. Yes they are on the small side but I think this is reflected in the price
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
If you are looking for luxury then the Dolby is not right for you but if you are looking for a one or two night break then this could be the one.
I recently stayed in this hotel and can vouch for the criticisms already expressed in other reviews. The room seemed clean enough until I opened one of drawers to be confronted with dirt, hairs and a previous occupants dirty clothes. There is hardly any space for your clothes in the MFI-style "wardrobe" and "drawers" that I wonder if the hotel expects that nobody could tolerate more than a couple of nights in the hotel so you might as well keep your clothes in your suitcase. My room also reeked of stale smoke as well. I am a non-smoker but smelt like a smoker by the time I had woken up the next morning such was the concentration of nicotine in the bed covers, furnishings and atmosphere.
Don't expect comfort or luxury here
I can honestly say I have never stayed anywhere quite like The Dolby Hotel. The location and view were fantastic, however, the room we stayed in was no bigger than our garage back home and the bathroom resembled that of a caravan. In fairness, the room was clean (to a degree) but there was very little room to move around in the room and bathroom (and I'm a very petite person!). Would definitely not stay here again, give me a Travel Lodge anyday, at least they don't resemble detention centres!!!
Not for 3....
If you planning a trip away for just 3 people, have a look around. There triple rooms consist of a double bed, with a bunk bed going across the top... and the bathroom, you be lucky to swing a cat in it.
Staff nice and friendly and food is very enjoyable and in nice walking distance into the city centre.
Be careful when you stay at the Dolby, If there is a football match on, the hotel is full of football supporters who spend the weekend on the booze and partying all night. For 2 nights we got very little sleep due to banging doors, yelling, shouting etc. The corridors were littered with beer cans and bottles next morning.
The hotel itself is ok but be prepared for lack of sleep.
Dolby is OK by us!
The Dolby is clean, cheap & cheerful. Nothing wrong with the rooms or the en suite facilities. The bar area is pleasant, but the evening meal menu leaves a bit to be desired. Breakfast looks & smells very good (although we don't take it.) Very good value for money; we have been several times AND taken friends!
A great time
We had a great time at he Dolby Hotel. The price was inexpensive and there was three of us in the room. The staff were really helpful aswell. We will definitely stay again.
Brilliant for price
The Dolby costs 42 pounds per room!! This shared between 3 of us added up to a very cheap fun ladies weekend, in a clean friendly hotel!!
Quality is very dependant on price vs what you get. As a budget hotel this place is good value for money.
A very small room with a bed above your head. Just like the youth hostels.No cupboard,no phone, small window.It takes about 20 minutes walk to the city center.Bad cleaning and sometimes noisy.Pay a few pounds more to get a room in the center of liverpool.
The hotel was very much like a youth hostel overlooking the docks. You could hear those in the surounding rooms. The room was clean but basic with room for 3, with another bed above the double bed. We got woken up at 8am on Saturday morning by the chambermaids repeatedly banging on the door to see if we needed anything for the room. This was their only visit to our room and the room was not made up at all that day. There was a long wait for breakfast in the morning and in the end we gave up.
The hotel was 15 minutes walk from the Albert Dock. That was the highlight.
