Historical Traveler Reviews The Liner Hotel Liverpool
Best part is breakfast
Stayed at the Gladstone last week. Breakfast was great as you could eat as much as you liked. The hotel looks drab from the outside and could do with improving as we were in two minds when we saw it. The room was'nt worth £57 per night. There were only two wall sockets so this was a problem if you wanted to charge your mobile for instance. The bath looked 40 years old and was yellow and peeling and there was mould on the ceiling. The doors are unpainted and have seen better days. The view was crap and the curtains let too much light in. Staff were pleasant which partly made up for the disadvantages. Do'nt try the chicken and sweetcorn soup as the excess salt will make you sick!
Drinks are expensive also. I'd give this hotel a measly 3/10 for trying.
Well presented bargain priced meals, friendly, helpful staff. Shame about the shabby decor, but the sheets and towels were clean and there was loads of hot water for showers
I've never felt so ripped off in my life!
Who ever rated this a three star hotel should be shot! It was just rotten dirty and ugly. There wasn't a section of the carpet that wasn't stained. The wallpaper around the bed was very stained, the net curtains had huge holes in them and were brown in colour. I booked the hotel for myself and some friends. I was mortified to see their room. Right beside their heads a huge section of wallpaper had been ripped off the wall and mould was now growing there. Breakfast was good but if you're down after 10.15 you'll be lucky to get tea, coffee etc because they stop refilling the kettles and jugs which is just a cheap trick. I would not wish this hotel on my worst enemy!
Stayed here March 2003. We trawled numerous internet sites looking for a 'cheap overnight stay' but could find nothing close enough to the station which was affordable and available. This hotel fits all criteria. Our £57 included the most amazing full English breakfast, served with fruit,cereals and tea,coffee or a choice of fruit juices. You just help yourself from the servery to as much as you can eat and its served until 10.30a.m on a weeekend so you don't have to get up at the crack of dawn.Our room was quiet, clean and fairly spacious. The staff were polite and helpful. The Beatles Museum and Albert DocK is only 5 minutes away by taxi and there was no rush or fighting for a taxi for our departure as the train station is just round the corner. It's not The Ritz but it's great for fiftyquid!
Dont bring the missus here
I agree with other reviews about the decor, dodgy shower units and iron marks a plenty. But if its a weekend away with the lads, who cares? The breakfasts are super and there is a late-ish bar. Perhaps something more upmarket would be required if you're bringing the missus.
Naked drunk in your bed
The staff are friendly and full of Liverpool wit but the refurbishment obviously never took place and is desperately needed. our twin room had peeling wall paper, a large iron burn in the carpet , the shower head dangled lamely in the bath without a hang hook but the sheets were clean. 2 twins and 1 single all booked at same time spread over 3 diffrent floors but what the hay its only an over nighter to see ian mcnabb in home town gig so it will do.
A nice meal and off to the gig, reminder to all don't forget your key slip or you won't get passed security on your return, back after midnight upto the bar for a sarnie, pint and then bed!!!
ok the bar full of drunken youths, so quick exit and to the room to find bed occupied by naked drunken bloke!!! Down to reception back with security, oh sorry thought this was his room! no never seen him before in our lives, rouse him he belongs in 609 we're in 605 finally to bed around 2am hotel goes quiet at around 4:30am, apology on checkout and a letter's coming this weeks sometime with a further one. and the hotel front door was put through last night so mind the glass!!! see you again i some how doubt it.
Is this a hotel or a tribute to 18th century decorating?
What a dump! Had the decorators run out of wallpaper? What were the scorch marks on the ceiling above the lights? Why were there cigerette burns in the bedspread and on the curtains? Why were the floors sticky? There was mould above the bath, the side of the bath was chipping away and I had some mysterious stains smudged lovingly on the bedroom wall.....
The bed would have been perfect if I was 3ft tall. Either it was meant to be a tribute to a bad 40's bedsit or it really hadn't ever been redorated. Awful.
Minging,haven't they heard of carpet cleaners? ...
In comparison to a £12 a night crappy B&B in Blackpool, the B&B would
have been a cleaner and more tasteful option. The bedrooms were
reminiscent of an Auswich POW camp complete with sticky carpet and
peeling wallpaper. £57 per room per night was a disgrace. The pleasant
hotel reception gives a false facade disguising these disgusting
cupboard like rooms. I would never stay here again, I would be too
embarrassed to recommend this hotel to anyone unless I disliked them
I have just had the misfortune to stay at this establishment. It was quite simply the worst hotel I have stayed in, regardless of the price paid for the room. As I walked to the door of my room I was slightly concerned by the peeling wallpaper in the corridor, the kickmarks to the other doors, the non existant fire hose and the general poor appearance of the place. I was unpleasantly surprised when I opened the door to my room to be confronted with the bedroom from hell, there were stains on the ceiling, the wallpaper was hanging off and there was also an area about 4 metres square where the wallpaper had been pulled off and someone had re-wallpapered, only thing is they used different wallpaper (which was also hanging off). The phone was ripped out of the wall, the bedcover looked like it was used by Gladstone himself, the remote was missing(presumably it was with the phone!) the curtains were hanging by a thread and both they and the 'furniture' in the room (a brown chair and a formica dressing table) looked like they had been reclaimed from the local dump in 1978. The bathroom was relatively clean with the exception of the dirty shower curtain and the yellow bath. There was a 'Room maintenance' questionnaire in the room, unfortunately I didnt have the 5 hours it would have taken to complete it. All in all a woeful experience. I would not recomment the hotel to anyone.
Good, Cheap Accomodation
Nice hotel, clean and functional.
Full of Liverpool fans when the home matches are on.
Rates are quite cheap, and availability is good.
Some rooms are overlooking the railway station, which can be noisy, but that wasn't a problem whe I was there.
There is a bar, and a buffet breakfast is served every morning, and included in your room price.

... my photo from when I was here in 2009 and see what the differences are.
After visiting the shrine I made my way back across the Dee and along the riverfront to Grosvenor Park, which is laid out in the Victorian style, and is quite pleasant to walk around. The park also contains a couple of memorials, and a miniature railroad for the kids! Not too far from the park are the remains of a Roman Amphitheatre. The amphitheatre is the largest in ...
... to winter is that the zoo is only open til 4pm... Still, I don't think I missed anything, and my photo importer is telling me it has 232 new ones to process today, so I must have seen a fair bit!
After catching the bus back to the city, I had another wander around, mainly admiring the architecture and noting down places to come back and explore properly tomorrow. I stopped at a bakery for some snacks and a chemist for some cold and flu tablets. I'm not sure if ...
... and the last few days have fatigued me somewhat as I find I'm in no mood to go exploring or out to any more pubs, much to Donnie's chagrin. Tomorrow is our Magical Mystery Tour!!
By the way, I've managed to include the pictures from a couple of the previous days, although not all from yesterday's -- it seems to tax the internet to do so. As you can see, I'm not exactly photographer material -- it's more for the memories than anything.
Soon they began to call for the ferry and we went down to the port and caught a bus to the ferry. For some reason they don't want people walking on. Once on the ferry i walked around, got some food, used the WiFi, did some reading, relaxed and soon enough we arrived in hollyhead (wales). From the ferry i went to the bus, then we got dropped at the port, i got my luggage and went to the station. Never once did i have my passport stamped. At ...
... By the close of the 18th century 40% of the world's, and 80% of Britain's Atlantic slave activity was accounted for by slave ships that voyaged from the docks at Liverpool. Vast profits from the slave trade transformed Liverpool into one of Britain's foremost important cities. Liverpool became a financial centre, rivalled by Bristol, another slaving port, and beaten only by London. Economic changes began in the first part of the 20th century, ...
