... defensive ring of over 3 kms of city walls that surround what was the medieval city. These walls were started by the Romans around 70 A.D. and over the centuries added to until 1070 when the invading Normans built a Castle which completed the full circuit of the city to what it is today. These walls helped to fortify the city and Castle during sieges in the 13th and 17th centuries, and are an easy and enjoyable way to see the city from on high.

... Beatles played nearly 300 shows. It was a pretty surreal experience to sit watching a local guy play some Beatles covers on the exact stage the band used to play on. Another exhibit we saw was part of the Maritime Museum on the docks. It was a museum dedicated to the story of black slavery - slaves in America, UK, France and other nations who felt the need to take humans from Africa and own them. A very powerful exhibition which left you asking the question "how could ...
We spent a couple of days with Margaret, Mick, Elizabeth and Holly (Robert's sister, brother-in-law, daughter and grand-daughter) in a cottage in a small village called LllanfairTalhaiarn, 5 miles south of Abergele. It’s on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park which is very picturesque and, as we had good weather, we saw it at its best.

Sunday, my last night in the U.K was spent having a lovely home cooked meal, a beautiful roast dinner curtesy of mummy Davies :-D (pictures below) Some of the most perfectly cooked roast beef I've ever had! It was defiantly needed to give us energy to do all the packing, which in the end after putting my suitcase on a diet weighed 22.8Kg my allowance was 23Kg so I wasted 0.2Kg! Monday morning ...
... s a budget hotel with thin walls, no AC and windows facing the street. Probably not the best idea but it's close to everything we want to see and they have a cappuccino machine! Breakfast faces the canal and we watch a man in a canoe while we eat. Today is Monday and we will spend the whole day on Albert Dock. Like much of the river front it has had a face lift and now houses the Merseyside Maritime Museum, trendy shops and ...

Lay down your head and sleep
This hotel is very basic. It's a place only for sleeping. You can't really take a long break in your room because it's not that luxurious to have a nice relaxing evening in your room. So, it all depends on what you're looking for. Breakfast is nice. Breakfast room is basic.
You pay only the price to sleep, have a shower and take breakfast. For a lovely and romantic stay you'd better go to another place.
i booked over the phone and they wanted a £10 deposit,paid via visa on the friday. check my account later that day to see if the money had come out!i'd be charged £100 not £10!phoned up and they werent v.apologetic,but got money back!i'm a student and my room is cleaner than the room i stayed in!very old and smelly!but great location!needs work done to it!
At least I got my money back.
Absolutely terrible, the room was dirty, had a musty smell, sheets were dirty on the bed, furniture was dirty and in bad condition. Did'nt even unpack my bag. Promptly went to reception and booked out.
im a ninteen year old drama student, i had an audition at LIPA, so needed somewhere quick and convinient to stay...convinient yes...but good??oh no!completely terrible infact!!reception staff were snappy and unhelpful,rooms were cold and v dirty. human hairs all over the bathroom!everywhere smelt very musty...we were just made to feel v unwelcome. we almost couldnt bring ourselves to sleep i n the beds at night but obviously dint have much choice...we couldnt wait to leave in the morning.i definatly would never recomend this hotel to anybody!
The worst place i've ever stayed
The downstairs seems quite reasonable on entering the Nord Nelson, but the rooms are dirty and could definately do with a lick of paint and refurbishment. The corridors smelt of drains and the window was held open by a toilet roll tube. I would not recommend to my worst enemy.
No, no, no. Do not stay in this hotel! The room we had the first night was dirty, dingy, it stank of something, and the conditions were something out of the 1950's. No thank you! I wasn't expecting much and I got less. It costs nothing to keep rooms clean and that's the least I was expecting. We came down late on Friday otherwise I would have demanded my money back there and then. They moved us to a different room the second night and at least it was a bit better. Clean if nothing else. They really need to renovate this hotel as it has a prime location, but let down by it's facilities.
I had friends over from all parts of the uk for a party they all stayed at the Lord Nelson Hotel ,they all had the same veiw of the Nelson ,dredful
Rooms where dirty ,items didnot work ie:showers,taps ect,and two of my friend had to change there room halfway through their stay.
I live in Liverpool but stayed the one night in the Hotel and even as a local could find nothing good about this Hotel,and if this is the standard of an Hotel in this location city centre I cannot think what visiters will think of the city of Liverpool
It needs a good overall
A warm welcome
From the moment we arrived until we departed the hotel we were made to feel really special. All the staff were very friendly, the rooms clean and the food was delicious.
The only criticism we had was that there was not a chair in the bedroom - just a very minor criticism.
We will certainly be staying there again.

To stay or not to stay
When they say this hotel was built 30 years ago - they forget to mention that the decor remains the same as it was back then in the 70's. The bedrooms are extremely basic - the carpets and beds are very old and there is a distinct musty smell present. The rooms could definately do with an overall refurbishment. Some of the single rooms do have an en-suite and I would recommend holding out for one of these as otherwise you have to share the bathroom - shower facilities with other visitors.
This is an old hotel - however, that said, it is very centrally located (right next to Lime Street Station). Also it only costs £28 per night incl. breakfast - although I wouldn't recommend the full english breakfast!
The staff are helpful and friendly and the rooms are tended to every morning.
Would I stay there again? That would have to be a no. But if its cheap accomodation and location your'e looking for then this is the place for you.
